Julius Caesar image deleted[edit]

Hi Evil berry, the image Image:Julius_Caesar_Italian_marble_19th_c..jpg, used in Augustus. The life and times of the founder of the Roman Empire (B.C. 63-A.D. 14)/Childhood and Youth, B.C. 63-44 and in The Women of the Caesars/Livia and Julia has been deleted from the Commons, apparently because of missing licence information. Does this image belong to these works as they were published, or did you include them for added value? If the former, please re-upload the image to the Commons, with proper licence information this time; otherwise these works would be incomplete. Thank you!--GrafZahl (talk) 09:58, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

In order to take advantage of these features, you need to enabled them in your preferences. --John Vandenberg (chat) 14:30, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

template tweak[edit]

I'm guessing that the recent work on Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology by (talkcontribs) is your work ?

I've made a change to {{Template:DGRBM/G.L.}} so that the parameter isnt required, and I have created Author:George Long to present a list of his works. It probably wont be feasible to continue to display a complete list of his articles once more are identified, but at present it looks nice to have some examples of his work listed.

Easy anchors[edit]

Not sure whether you are aware of the template {{anchor}}. It is the easy way to create an anchor on a page {{anchor|placeholder. If it is of use, great.-- billinghurst (talk) 13:16, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Use of Author: namespace rather than Categories[edit]

Gday. I see that you have created a template and category for an author. Templates are very useful in that scenario, however, rather than have a category to collect like pages, we think that we have a better means with our Author: namespace and create the page Author:Edward Boucher James. I will create the framework of the page, and you might be so kind to add any further detail that you might have. -- billinghurst (talk) 13:17, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

The Amazing Emperor Heliogabalus[edit]

Is there a publicly available scan of this work? We can inhale it and work of that for proofreading. billinghurst (talk) 16:47, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

I use the copy at the Internet Archive. You also got Full text version, but it needs a lot of correcting (especially because "y" turn into "v"). Evil berry (talk) 19:25, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
Obviously we have been keeping some secrets about our better tools to enable this sort of work. I have imported a .djvu file of the work to Index:The Amazing Emperor Heliogabalus.djvu and using our proofreading tools we can edit against the text. This can then be transcluded into the main namespace.

See our new {{welcome}} message for the current information available.

If you look at the Index page, if you click on the redlink, it will open that page, and also import the text layer (the same as linked above) for correction. Your work is not in vain as we will be able to move it straight into place. I am happy to do that task for you, though it will be a little later. billinghurst (talk) 22:51, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

FYI: Page templates have anchors[edit]

Saw that you added a span id, when the pages are transcluded, the page markers on the left have anchors built-in that already do what you are after. billinghurst sDrewth 16:00, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Excuse the interuption. They are harmless, but you don't need those span ids, a link with # added will target an original page number. A link like The_Amazing_Emperor_Heliogabalus/Chapter_III#59 or as a url will go to that page number. Regards, Cygnis insignis (talk) 10:58, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
I forgot. Thanks. Evil berry (talk) 11:00, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
