Anthologia Palatina[edit]

Hello, thanks for contributing with Anthologia Palatina/IX/577 Ptolemaeus. It would be great to have this book here. Do you want to continue with the other chapters too? I can upload the book to Commons and create an index page that would allow you side-by-side proofreading (an example of such an index page here) and after it is finished we can transclude it to the main namespace. I am aware of the fact that it may sound complicated, but in fact it is very easy and I can assist you. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 18:13, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

I see. Unfortunately, there are not that many contributors here as in Wikipedia, and when somebody adds only such a tiny fraction of a book, nobody continues, and so such fractions usually get deleted from the main namespace after some time. Scan-backing the work makes the probability that somebody would join a bit bigger, and what is more, index pages are never deleted for the sole reason that nobody works on them, because they are not in the main namespace and so they are allowed to wait until some contributor notices them. So I can upload the scan and create the index page, and you can transcribe there just as much text as you wish. To get it into the main namespace it would be good if at least some considerable part of the book was transcribed, including the book’s Contents and Index. If you want to transcribe only a few minichapters, it is still good, only the work will have to wait in the index namespace until more contributors join.
To keep the discussion together, you can answer here, I will certainly notice it (or you can add {{ping|Jan.Kamenicek}} to the beginning of your text and I will get a notification). --Jan Kameníček (talk) 21:18, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
