Hello Slgrandson, welcome to Wikisource! Thanks for your interest in the project; we hope you'll enjoy the community and your work here.

You'll find an (incomplete) index of our works listed at Wikisource:Works, although for very broad categories like poetry you may wish to look at the categories like Category:Poems instead.

Please take a glance at our help pages (especially Adding texts and Wikisource's style guide). Most questions and discussions about the community are in the Scriptorium.

The Community Portal lists tasks you can help with if you wish. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my talk page! John Vandenberg (chat) 21:08, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Gadsby[edit]

Hi, I saw it with multiple headers per page and couldn't work out what had happened. I never thought of pressing "match" more than once. Well spotted. Do the instructions at Help:Match and Split need amending to prevent others doing this? Beeswaxcandle (talk) 03:14, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Invention of Printing and Theodore Low De Vinne[edit]

Thanks for looking at this and fixing it up! I meant to fix the pd tag, and finish up the index page and forgot about it. I hope changing the author page you created to a redirect to the page was the correct course as I had already created an author page for Mr. De Vinne. MarkLSteadman (talk) 05:11, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Test edit message[edit]

Hi, thanks for posting that test edit message at User_talk:108.203.83.102. I thought there was something I'd missed when I marked the article and talk {{sdelete}}, but couldn't put my finger on it. :) —Clockery Fairfield (talk) 14:44, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Kutenai Tales[edit]

Hello Slgrandson,

It was a very pleasant and very unexpected surprise to find you working on Kutenai text and page layouts. I could hardly believe it was happening. And I am quite confused as to how you could be doing it at all. It looks a little beyond of what I think are ordinary human abilities.

Now, I am confused about the manner of presentation of those tales. I want to create a mainspace page for each individual tale. I believe readers should be able, depending on their preference, to access the English-only version of every tale just as well as the bilingual version. However, I have problems thinking how to realize that. Have you got any ideas? Tar-ba-gan (talk) 19:02, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Fairy tales...[edit]

Hey, I saw your ping on The Violet Fairy Book. Glad to see someone taking an interest in these books: they'd be a good thing to have complete in our collection.

But a note of caution: our existing texts of the tales in these books are usually from a different edition, or, in the case of those copied from Gutenberg, from an indeterminate amalgamation of multiple editions. If you copy that text into the Page: pages for the specific edition we have a scan for you will have to apply an unusually fine-toothed comb when proofreading. In my experience it is actually much better (and less work) to proofread directly from OCR text than try to reuse Gutenberg texts, in particular. This will vary based on the text in question and your own preference when proofreading, of course, but it's worth keeping in mind the need for extra vigilance in these cases. --Xover (talk) 13:46, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

Dominica[edit]

Hi Dylan, I saw your work on Index:The History of the Island of Dominica.djvu. My good friend User:Shanluan is also from Dominica, and I pointed it out to her; she leads the Wikimedians of the Caribbean user group. I thought you two might enjoy getting acquainted, you seem to have a lot in common. You may want to reach out to her on Wikipedia or Meta, she is not an active Wikisourcer (yet!) -Pete (talk) 18:57, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
