Thank you EncycloPetey[edit]

Thank you i am very new at this. Just trying.


I see that you have done significant contributions in wikitonary. I am not able to understand how to edit those pages, can you help me with a sample page? If feasible a guide to how to edit in wikitonary. Thanks Cyarenkatnikh (talk)

Weird edits by[edit]

As you were the initial responding Admin, I am bringing this to your attention. They probably should all be speedied, but the pattern is concerning to say the least (appears to be testing what they can get away with). –MJLTalk 15:05, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:19, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Autopatrolled status[edit]

Hi, I see you moved Levana Taylor out of autopatrolled a few weeks ago. Are you OK now with the idea of moving them back, or would rather we waited another month? Beeswaxcandle (talk) 18:14, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Yes, moving back would probably be OK now. --EncycloPetey (talk) 19:51, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

"More recent editions of this work may be copyrighted."[edit]

I notice you added this to the license tag for Shakespeare works. What would you say to adding it to the {{PD-old}} template itself? —Beleg Tâl (talk) 15:01, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

You'll have to be a little more explicit in what you mean and what you are asking. I don't quite follow. Where are you seeing the added text? I don't see it in any of the Yale Shakespeare series.
You mean on the versions pages? The {{PD-old}} template may appear in any of several namespaces, and on any number of kinds of pages (versions, translations, editions). For some of these, that added verbiage would not apply.
We might add a "versions" toggle that displays the additional text, but it won't be appropriate in circumstances where it is added to a specific edition, which are the majority of usages. --EncycloPetey (talk) 15:35, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

RE: The Oldest English Epic[edit]

Hey, thanks for the informative message. The reason why I filled the TOC, was so that I could see all the pages on the EPUB book (the one you can download by clicking 'Download as EPUB'). If a page or subpage is not linked in the TOC, it will not appear on the resulting EPUB. That was my observation. Is there a discrete way of making Wikisource pack all the pages of a book? (pages as in 'wikisource' pages/links, not as in .djvu pages) If there is not, I will begin creating the Aux ToC. Thanks again. -- Genesis Bustamante (talk) 01:52, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Yes, The Aux ToC will do that. --EncycloPetey (talk) 02:04, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Advice pls[edit]

Please tell me how you fixed it up like that! It's just so cool!! –MJLTalk 00:20, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Simplified explanation:
1. Download raw jp2 file from Internet Archive
2. Locate all pages for files containing images, put them in a separate folder, renaming them according to page number
3. Crop images, desaturate, adjust brightness and contrast, save to standard naming system as png
4. Locate previous version of file on Commons and rename to convention
5. Upload newly cleaned version of file, update file information to include all desired info
It's not a quick process, but I hope to have the work finished in the next week or so. --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:24, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
Could you expand on what tools you use for step three? I think the best result I have ever gotten from uploading an image from a source text was this (and even then I am not too happy with the result). Are you using GIMP or a different setup? Thank you for that initial response though! It's incredibly valuable info here for me :D –MJLTalk 00:51, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
I'm using Preview, which is basic Apple software that came pre-installed on my Mac. --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:53, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
Gotcha! I've been using Microsoft Photos myself, and I am glad to have confirmation that I am not the only one using pre-installed software here. Thank you for your time. :) –MJLTalk 01:03, 8 April 2019 (UTC)


I believe that the block was entirely unnecessary. I do not frequently check my talk-page, and was editing normally at the time. I would like you to stop your repeated pattern of abuse against me, and allow me to edit without disruption on your part. My goal is only to improve the coverage of books on Wikisource, and not to cause general disruption. Thank you. TE(æ)A,ea. (talk) 23:50, 8 April 2019 (UTC).

You have made a habit of ignoring advice given to you, ignoring messages left on your Talk Page, and ignoring the Style Guide. If you truly wish not to cause disruption, then attend to these. Please pay attention as you are editing, rather than plowing over the work of others and breaking formatting. Do not call repairs to your damage "vandalism". --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:00, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I find no instances, excepting the differentiation between em-dashes and en-dashes, that involve complaints against my actions that I have not followed. This is due to a fault with my computer. As I have said, I do not usually check my talk-page, and as such, I usually respond to other users on their talk-pages. As for your request for “attention,” I would advise you of the same requirement; for, I was merely proofreading the pages you had not (in the past), which you reverted. TE(æ)A,ea.

Account creation on blocked IP address[edit]

Why is account creation blocked when IP addresses are blocked? Just interested to know. HutheMeow

Among other reasons, IP vandals will often create an account to continue vandalizing when the IP is blocked. Contributors who already have accounts will not be affected. --EncycloPetey (talk) 15:28, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
