Arthur Clark Kennedy musings[edit]

I uploaded Erotica, book to commons and created it across Wikisource English but I'm not sure if this Arthur and author should have his own article.
What Arthur Clark Kennedy did was:

  • write and publish a poetry book, in 1891, called Pictures in Rhyme which includes war poetry, At Kassasin
  • write a love / poetry book, called Erotica with 250 copies for sale, in 1894
  • marry a woman, who later, in divorce proceedings, said she'd had to take care of him financially
  • have an affair with Olga FitzGeorge, socialite and descendant of King George III
  • abandon his wife
  • end up in the newspapers for the above reasons, in divorce proceedings filed by his wife

Invitation to join WS:WPV[edit]

Hey! I saw you made some recent validations, Level C. You might want to consider joining WikiProject Validate. We have a noticeboard where users can request their proofread works can be validated (this would be ideal for when Erotica gets proofread). Would this be something you are interested in joining? PS, if you want to include references on talk pages, you can use {{Reflist-talk}}.MJLTalk 18:40, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the invitation. It's official then! I find validating is a nice way to pass the time, especially when you come across a really good book. Hey! I like the reflist talk template. Thanks again.--Level C (talk) 00:00, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
I Feel the exact same way!! I really enjoy trying to help other editors out with their projects (especially when my own personal interest in mine stalls). It's a great way to learn some interesting and new things! I'm really excited to have you onboard as well!! (Also, I'm glad you like the reflist-talk template!) Good news all around!!! :D –MJLTalk 00:20, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Pictures In Rhyme[edit]

Hello. As you may have noticed, I started validating the Pictures In Rhyme and Kathleen.wright5 joined. Maybe it is time to transclude the work into the main namespace to see whether all the templates work there well, too. I could do it but I thought you may prefer doing it yourself. If not, let me know and I will transclude it. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 20:05, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

thank you. I don't know how to do that. You are welcome to do it thanks. Level C
No problem, I have started and will finish it tomorrow. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 22:46, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
I hadn't noticed 'cause all notifications were going to my spam folder. Thanks again and I'll be sure to contribute some more here!--Level C (talk) 23:43, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

I have transcluded the work, can you check whether everything is OK, please? Thanks. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 22:30, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Wow. That's pretty magical stuff @Jan.Kamenicek: - the image on page 36"In his hand a glittering rapier shone" is amazing. Great job with this. I'm looking at it I just see the TOC on the source pages (non-transcluded pages) are red links so I may have done something wrong there. --Level C (talk) 00:44, 22 April 2019 (UTC)



did you, by any chance, have any plans to create the pages in the main namespace for Index:Erotica.djvu ? The validation is moving on, and every now and then it is handy to have a look at the result in the "final form". So if you find some time, and have ideas about the way to handle this..... I feel myself not really confident with poetry. Once you have decided how to do it, I can of course give you a helping hand. Greetz, --Dick Bos (talk) 18:56, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

I now read the previous post on this page, and understand that you are not used to doing this either. Well. Give it a try. There will surely be someone to help you, if you run into troubles. --Dick Bos (talk) 18:57, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

@Dick Bos: I do have to try to learn how to do that. I'll give it a shot one day- soon, I hope. In the meantime, I'll keep validating Index:Henry VI Part 3 (1923) Yale.djvu. Thanks.--The Eloquent Peasant (talk) 00:03, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi. I saw that you self-validated some pages. This is not the process. Proofreading / Validation shall be done by distinct editors. (e.g. [1]). Mpaa (talk) 15:32, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
The system shouldn't let me.--The Eloquent Peasant (talk) 19:45, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
@Dick Bos: Flash Blast from the past.. Might you know why the Erotica book "download" doesn't download all the pages, but only 11 pages, not any content pages? Should i ask on another page? Regards! --The Eloquent Peasant (talk) 15:34, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
Hi there. Sorry. I think I can't help you. I see the problem, but I really don't know what the cause is. Perhaps ask in the Scriptorium.... Some of the friends with much technical knowledge might be able to help. Greetings, --Dick Bos (talk) 08:41, 22 May 2021 (UTC)
TY! Yes check.svg Done
