Hello Waldir, 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 held at 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!

No requirement for fussing over columns[edit]

To note that we don't overly fuss trying to maintain columns in the Page: ns, and we definitely don't utilise them in the main ns. We don't use them as they don't travel well with wide screens, other forms, so the community has long held to not bothering (too much effort for next to no benefit). In short you can set as one column. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:17, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice :) Yes, I realized how they create problems with transcluding content into other pages, so I settled for css columns that don't have that problem and still reasonably approximate the original layout in the Page namespace. I hope that is ok. Cheers, Waldir (talk) 08:25, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Congressional Record[edit]

Waldir "Help me Obi Wan Kenobi you're my only hope" - I dig how you created Index:Congressional Record Volume 81 Part 3.djvu . I think we need to do that for all the Congressional Record Volumes. The info is available at archive.org (for example, archive.org but I don't know how you created Index:Congressional Record Volume 81 Part 3.djvu or how to get the text and images into Wikisource using mass copy (doing one page at a time would take forever). Please let me know whether you would be interested in working on this together or showing me how to do this. -- Wesboson (talk) 02:51, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Apologies for the extremely late response! Unfortunately, although I would love to see the Congressional Records transcribed here on Wikisource, I don't have the bandwidth to help with such a large endeavor. To be honest, I probably have even forgotten most of the knowledge I acquired while working on that particular volume, so I don't think I'd be of much assistance. That said, I'd be happy to help with anything that's within my limited reach and availability. Cheers, Waldyrious (talk) 15:16, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
