uploading works[edit]

the normal process for uploading works is:

  1. scan book as pdf
  2. upload pdf to internet archive
  3. upload file to commons using IAuploader, (requires OAuth
  4. create index page at wikisource, for example
  5. create work page with chapter links, with transclusion from pages, for example
  • merely cutting and pasting text, is deprecated - prefer page link to text page scan to verify book.
  • yes it is complicated, and hacked together, have wished for a wizard, but no progress so far. Slowking4SvG's revenge 14:46, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much. -- DonTrung (徵國單)  (討論 🤙🏻) (方孔錢 ☯) 09:58, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
yes, IA uploader is buggy and uploads hang when files "are too large". maybe you should open a phabricator ticket. for example . Slowking4SvG's revenge 16:37, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

User is gone[edit]

There is little point in posting a lengthy discussion to a user who has not edited on Wikisource since 2011. --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:41, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Pardon, I just wanted to raise privacy concerns. I'm not sure why such sensitive matters can't be discussed with the affected users first before it's posted publicly. -- DonTrung (徵國單)  (討論 🤙🏻) (方孔錢 ☯) 01:26, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
It's just odd to discuss matters with someone who hasn't been here for seven years. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:45, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
I didn't want to do it on the concerned wiki because of the Streisand effect, and I don't have e-mail enabled and my e-mail client is broken, but you're absolutely right. -- DonTrung (徵國單)  (討論 🤙🏻) (方孔錢 ☯) 03:14, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
Just be aware that he may not see your message, if he has notifications turned off. --EncycloPetey (talk) 03:21, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
