Index pages for EB1911 available[edit]

Hello! I was wondering if you knew that there were Indexes available for the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica? I noticed that you were transcribing text directly to the Mainspace page for each entry, and thought to mention that it might be easier to proofread/add text via the Index pages. For example, your entry for "Alpes Maritimes" can be found in the Volume I Index at page 766 (actual page 723). Once you have proofread the text for a particular entry, you can then set up the Mainspace page using transclusion notation (see example). It is necessary, however, to "section" the entry on the Index page. An example of how that is done can be found here (where you will note ## "Advice" ##). Hope this can be helpful, Londonjackbooks (talk) 18:03, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Sonja, your tips were really helpful.Clarice Reis (talk) 00:47, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
I hope so :) I also wanted to add that I changed three Mainspace pages that you created ("Allegri, Gregorio", "Allegro", and "Alleine, Joseph"), but your proofreading did not go to waste; I merely copy/pasted your work onto the corresponding Index:page and then transcluded the info. after fixing some quotation marks and removing end-of-line spaces from the text. Londonjackbooks (talk) 02:58, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
No problem. Just a small correction, I did not create "Allegro". Regards, Clarice Reis (talk) 03:32, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
You're right! It was stuck in the middle, and I assumed! :) Londonjackbooks (talk) 11:11, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Don't forget (I'm assuming again) that once you have gone over a complete Index page sufficiently, you can mark it as having been Proofread. Londonjackbooks (talk) 15:03, 12 November 2011 (UTC)


Hyphenation in the shoulder headings looks very out of place to me. It is not necessary, and it is eliminated from the body text. Thank you for your efforts on the Britannica articles. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 16:28, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Wikisource User Group[edit]

Wikisource, the free digital library is moving towards better implementation of book management, proofreading and uploading. All language communities are very important in Wikisource. We would like to propose a Wikisource User Group, which would be a loose, volunteer organization to facilitate outreach and foster technical development, join if you feel like helping out. This would also give a better way to share and improve the tools used in the local Wikisources. You are invited to join the mailing list 'wikisource-l' (English), the IRC channel #wikisource, the facebook page or the Wikisource twitter. As a part of the Google Summer of Code 2013, there are four projects related to Wikisource. To get the best results out of these projects, we would like your comments about them. The projects are listed at Wikisource across projects. You can find the midpoint report for developmental work done during the IEG on Wikisource here.

Out-of-order pages[edit]

I think you're asking for help with vol 3 pp 737-738 being reversed? I don't know how the indexes were constructed, so I don't know if there is some hidden metadata. Otherwise it would seem the simplest fix would be to switch the textual content of the two pages with each other. I can handle that (give me a few days). Also, p.737 is one of the few that are set in two columns; I don't know if there was a final decision but I thought the consensus was to just use one column so I'll fix that too.

And, while I have your attention, I pinged you a while back on Wikisource talk:WikiProject 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica (section about images); I figured most of the answers out for myself but I'd be interested if you have created any other interesting categories like the Category "Emery Walker" for output from that prolific engraver.

New Proposal Notification - Replacement of common main-space header template[edit]

Announcing the listing of a new formal proposal recently added to the Scriptorium community-discussion page, Proposals section, titled:

Switch header template foundation from table-based to division-based

The proposal entails the replacement of the current Header template familiar to most with a structurally redesigned new Header template. Replacement is a needed first step in series of steps needed to properly address the long time deficiencies behind several issues as well as enhance our mobile device presence.

There should be no significant operational or visual differences between the existing and proposed Header templates under normal usage (i.e. Desktop view). The change is entirely structural -- moving away from the existing HTML all Table make-up to an all Div[ision] based one.

Please examine the testcases where the current template is compared to the proposed replacement. Don't forget to also check Mobile Mode from the testcases page -- which is where the differences between current header template & proposed header template will be hard to miss.

For those who are concerned over the possible impact replacement might have on specific works, you can test the replacement on your own by entering edit mode, substituting the header tag {{header with {{header/sandbox and then previewing the work with the change in place. Saving the page with the change in place should not be needed but if you opt to save the page instead of just previewing it, please remember to revert the change soon after your done inspecting the results.

Your questions or comments are welcomed. At the same time I personally urge participants to support this proposed change. -- George Orwell III (talk) 02:04, 13 January 2015 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing up my incorrect edit on 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica/Biella - I had edited the wrong page! Diverman (talk) 08:26, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
