Image placement in Scrambles[edit]

Not a perfect solution, but I applied image placement formatting that I copied from that used in The Water Babies (see)... Someone else may have a better solution. Londonjackbooks (talk) 15:19, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. I was wondering how to add text under a picture without the thumb rendering. On this specific page, I'm not sure it is possible to have the text that follow the mountain shape... Zil (talk) 18:52, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Du Faur - Mount Cook[edit]

Hi, welcome back. I've just seen your new work. I hope you don't mind, but I plan to follow you along through this work as it will be a great addition to the NZ collection. (No pressure though as I've plenty of other projects on hand.) Beeswaxcandle (talk) 07:59, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

emdash template[edit]

Hi, the emdash template is not a good thing. When works are exported to epub format, the thin spaces on either side are replaced with ? marks. As a result I've been de-templating them whenever I see them. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 00:10, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

With Axe and Rope in the New Zealand Alps (1891)[edit]


WITH AXE AND ROPE-in the NEW ZEALAND ALPS-by George-Edward-Mannering-Member of the New Zealand-and-Alpine-Club-1891

"This short work contains the story of five seasons' climbing and exploring in the New Zealand Alps.

This would make a good book in place of the two previously mentioned books and this is illustrated.

w:George Edward Mannering died in 1947... Is the book free in NZ? Zil (talk) 14:42, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
I am in the USA. I have been here 7 years and on an almost daily basis. The author is dead. It is fine here. Americans just take live or dead people's stuff. :-) But ask User:Beeswaxcandle. He is an administrator, a New Zealander, and will know the answer to your New Zealand question. —Maury (talk) 15:00, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
