Hello, Klarm768, and welcome to Wikisource! Thank you for joining the project. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

You may be interested in participating in

Add the code {{active projects}}, {{PotM}} or {{CotW}} to your page for current wikisource projects.

You can put a brief description of your interests on your user page and contributions to another Wikimedia project, such as Wikipedia and Commons.

Have questions? Then please ask them at either

I hope you enjoy contributing to Wikisource, the library that is free for everyone to use! In discussions, please "sign" your comments using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your IP address (or username if you're logged in) and the date. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question here (click edit) and place {{helpme}} before your question.

Again, welcome! —Beleg Tâl (talk) 18:30, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

@Beleg Tâl: Please translate

You probably mean some page not named "your page." Or do you? How do I know when I am on "my page?" When I find the your page and add the code, whose current wikisource projects will be displayed? I suspect that I am NOT grammar-and-syntax-stupid. Please presume I belong in wiki-as-a-twelfth-language. Klarm768 (talk) 15:05, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

@Klarm768: Your user page is User:Klarm768. You can put anything you want there (so long as it isn't illegal/copyrighted). You can add those codes to your user page if you want. You don't need to add those codes if you don't want to. The "current Wikisource projects" are collaborative projects being worked on by the English Wikisource community. They are also displayed on the Main Page under the section "current collaborations". —Beleg Tâl (talk) 15:17, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
@Beleg Tâl: Thanks. I hope to get going on my project for which I joined wikisource. I presume that what I've done so far will be findable again, but I get lost from one excursion to the next. I would like to create links from my user page User:Klarm768 but I'm not there yet. I intend to learn how to make mistakes on my own project rather than somebody else's.

Two points about the Page namespace: (1) Don't insert header templates or use wiki-headings. We try to replicate the look of the original. (2) Don't insert your signature into the work either. You'll understand better why no once the final work is assembled. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:23, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Probably the best place to start for reference is Help:Beginner's guide to proofreading and the "next" page after it on Typography. They won't cover everything, but will give you a decent sense of what to do, and list some of the more common templates you're likely to need. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:44, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
