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)

Meqabyan/Ethiopian Maccabees[edit]

Yes, I am the translator. I have various reasons for permitting its partial public use.

Meqabyan/Ethiopian Maccabees[edit]

I'd be glad to provide that, but I have little to no knowledge of how wikipedia operates.

Constitution of Qatar[edit]

header template, The[edit]

I find myself frustrated with the flexibilty of this template, any sort of ordering of bibliographic data, then its formatting, then a lack of labelling, then I stand back and look at the very name and skewed purpose. My notion is that its original purpose was to replace the title page, and in deed become the meta title for a single work of that name [of multiple sources, like a en.wp article, indeed, this was the first virtue I recognised in scanbased transcription]. I thought to share this with you because of the efforts in versions, disambiguation and neatly informative translations pages.

My impression is that the header template was intended (throughout a work) to let people know what work they are in, and provide links to the previous and next section. It also permits the editor to provide brief information about issues with the copy. I don't see that it would, could , or should replace the title page, which sometimes includes additional information and/or an illustration. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:00, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I'm tending to the picture of George Eliot for my favoured nominee at welcome, which seems to accord with some of your thoughts on this first impression; being face on is good when I think about it. Yours, CYGNIS INSIGNIS 12:02, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I am not as active here at the moment. My job responsibilities have changed, and I do not have the time to weigh on on this. I recommend asking the community at large if you have settled on a specific image as a possible replacement. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:00, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Commons file image rotate request[edit]

Greetings EncycloPetey... Is it possible for this image to be slightly rotated right? I was not able to do so myself at Commons. If not, I can create my own file for this page. Thanks! Londonjackbooks (talk) 14:57, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Unfortunately, I do not have software the performs incremental rotations. You might have more success looking for help from someone at Commons. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:56, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No problem. Thanks! Hope all is well :) Londonjackbooks (talk) 18:33, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Londonjackbooks: I was here dropping a link (that may or may not be welcome) off and saw this. Try Wikisource:Scan Lab in which, I make no promises for.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 20:19, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks @RaboKarbakian: :) I rotated the image to my liking using my photo editing software. I just need to refresh my memory as to how to create a derivative file (if that's what it's called) at Commons... or else upload an effectively redundant image there. I will keep the scan lab in mind however. Thanks! Londonjackbooks (talk) 20:28, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Londonjackbooks:Oh, I misunderstood then. The croptool at commons will also rotate. Croptool needs to be enabled in preferences and I cannot remember where exactly the rotate is, maybe/probably below the little boxes that tell where to select for crop. And there is an additional login also. I thought you wanted a whole (pages and pages) scan rotated. Maybe you can rotate it and skip the new upload, but a new upload requires nothing more than a new name. Croptool will upload into the same namespace also, you get the option before you tell it to crop..--RaboKarbakian (talk) 22:17, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I opted for the new upload... Easier for me (and quicker); I am not very patient :) Londonjackbooks (talk) 22:22, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

just a nothing: Prospero might be Brahe[edit]

I was looking for a way to generate the log tables for an astrology book. I found a lot of stuff, nothing definitive though, but this was one of the more interesting off-wm things I read. The part about Brahe and Prospero is close to the end... https://mathpages.com/rr/s8-01/8-01.htm --RaboKarbakian (talk) 20:17, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

TOC question[edit]

Hello, EncycloPetey. 2 years ago you explained me the use of Auxiliary Table of Contents, when I added a TOC in The Oldest English Epic/Chapter 1. I think I did that to be able to download Chapter 1 with its sub-chapters. After your explanation I realized that Chapter 1 belonged to a parent work: The Oldest English Epic, so I dropped the need, and added an Aux TOC there. But now I thought about it again... that it would be practical to be able to download Beowulf (Chapter 1) only, which is one of the versions shown in the Beowulf page. And I think this can be achieved with the {{Hidden export TOC}} template. Would it be appropriate to add one in Chapter 1? —Genesis Bustamante (talk) 19:45, 8 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I really don't know enough to say. Typically, an auxiliary table of content is placed on the primary page, to allow complete download of the text, which would not be possible in a book that otherwise lacked a ToC. You may have to run some tests to see what works, and what doesn't. It is possible that having the Aux ToC in a subpage could cause download issues for the full text, but as I say, I do not know for sure and recommend testing out a few options before committing to a full change. --EncycloPetey (talk) 03:31, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'll do some tests in my sandbox. —Genesis Bustamante (talk) 17:14, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I could not make tests there because the export options did not appear. I went to the main namespace and added an AuxTOC in Chapter 1 and one in Chapter 5; then I had to delete the main AuxTOC to prevent TOC item repetition. The exports are good, whether the whole book or Chapter 1, and both PDF and EPUB show the subchapters nested. That is unprecedented for me. —Genesis Bustamante (talk) 03:33, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
