Hello, and welcome to Wikisource! Thank you for joining the project. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Please consider putting a brief description of yourself on your user page. If you are already a contributor to another Wikimedia project, such as Wikipedia, please mention this on your user page so we know how to contact you. Also, mention which languages you understand if English is not your first language.

In any case, I hope you enjoy donating your time to grow the Wikisource library that is free for everyone to use! In discussions, please "sign" your comments using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your IP address (or username if you're logged in) and the date. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question here (click edit) and place {{helpme}} before your question.

Again, welcome! John Vandenberg (chat) 10:38, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

moving pages[edit]

Thanks for sorting out that rearrangement of the pages. For next time, moving pages can done using the "move" button at the top of most pages. see m:Help:Moving a page. If you do not have this "move" button yet, it will automatically appear in a day or two. John Vandenberg (chat) 07:57, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Changes to Live to be Useful[edit]

Hello Diego. Thanks for your interest in Live to be Useful, but I've reverted your changes (one example of which). An anonymous author is one who deliberately published a work without authorship information, which is a subset of all unknown authors (some of which are deleted on Wikisource). Changing "anonymous" to "unknown" loses that important distinction. In addition, the dots you removed were present in the original text; for example, see the scan of page 5. —{admin} Pathoschild 15:47:23, 03 April 2008 (UTC)

HI - no hard feelings, sorry for my confusion. But there is one thing I didn't notice before: "It was first digitized by Project Gutenberg (who released their edition into the public domain), and further proofread by Wikisource. (Typographical errors in the original text were corrected by Project Gutenberg, but restored for fidelity in this edition.)". I'm not that familiar with Wikisource's policies, but shouldn't "Notes" be for notes about the work itself, and not about the page, article. I'm asking this, so that I'd know what you think before removing it. diego_pmc 17:14, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
The notes parameter is for information about the edition, not only the work in general. This includes mentioning changes to the text, in this case.
By convention, we typically cite the source on the talk page, because simple mirrors don't need attribution. In those cases, the link only serves to verify our edition during proofreading. When we do know who did the considerable work of digitizing the printed edition, I think it's best to place attribution in the notes (but there's no particular convention on this point). Whether or not we do, it's important to note that we've made some changes to that digitized edition to more closely match the printed edition. —{admin} Pathoschild 22:34:52, 03 April 2008 (UTC)
That's what I had in mind, moving that info to the talk page. I would still do it, it looks cleaner to me that way. diego_pmc 09:01, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Please don't move the editorial information to the talk page. If you think it should not be in the header notes, please finish discussing before moving them, or request comment on the community discussion page. —{admin} Pathoschild 08:50:43, 05 April 2008 (UTC)
If you really have something against it, then tell it on your talk page when asked. Your silence might be understood as "do as you will".diego_pmc 16:07, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

CIA WFB[edit]

A digital edition of the CIA WFB 2004 can be obtained from here; I'm not 100% certain that it is the same as the printed volume, as some of the images in the digital edition appear pre-published. John Vandenberg (chat) 07:42, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

email notifications[edit]

Hi, after a proposal to enable email notification, Wikisource is now able to notify you of any changes to pages on your watchlist and/or changes to your talk page. In order to take advantage of these features, you need to enabled them in your preferences. --John Vandenberg (chat) 14:48, 18 April 2008 (UTC)


I have found a problem with our {{Page}} template when viewed with IE6, and hopefully I have also fixed that problem. More details at Template talk:Page#thinsp. Does that improve A Description of a City Shower for you? If you still dislike the "[page]" appearing, we can turn that off entirely, but we need to further improve {{Page}} to do that. John Vandenberg (chat) 00:11, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

It's all right now, but I'm using MF2, not IE6. diego_pmc 05:11, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Coker doc image sigs[edit]

Re your comment here: Wikisource:Featured_text_candidates#Index:GeorgeTCoker.djvu, I've now added the images of the sigs for those who actually signed and for the two that have articles, used imagemaps to link thereto. Please revisit the nom and let me know if you have additional ideas. Good idea here, wish I'd thought of it. RlevseTalk 17:57, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Ray doc image sigs[edit]

Thanks again for all your help on the Coker stuff. I'm now working on similar docs from another Vietnam-era POW, James Edwin Ray. Can you fix this image: Image:SteveSchultzSig.jpg like you did the others? Tks. I hope your German surrender doc makes it at FT. RlevseTalk 20:10, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Two more in case you're interested: Image:PattyFieldSig.jpg and Image:FrancisSneadSig.jpg RlevseTalk 15:54, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I really appreciate it. 20:45, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Copyright issue with Maya Lin's original competition submission for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial[edit]

I've noted a possible copyright issue for Maya Lin's original competition submission for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, at this discussion. It may not actually be a work of the United States government, so it may have to be deleted. Superm401 (talk) 04:56, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
