History of Persia[edit]

When you moved the Index, you failed to move several dozen pages that were dependent upon matching the title of the index. You will need to move of all those pages to the new title as well, otherwise many hours of work will be lost. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:47, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

@EncycloPetey: i have a move ready im waiting for a csd to finish before i can do it though. Zppix (talk) 21:50, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
It would probably have been wiser to wait then, before initiating the move of that project. You moved the Index over two hours ago. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:56, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
The links to the index also need to be repaired. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:57, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
I can do all the cleanup work if you could delete Page:History of Persia EncycloPetey Zppix (talk) 21:59, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Cleanup is not conditional. Breaking links and making repairs conditional on the actions of others is more than irresponsible; it is rude. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:02, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
I can't move the pages to the new title unless its deleted though, I realize the way i did the move was wrong, and now i know for the future. Zppix (talk) 22:04, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Then the best solution is for me to put the Index back the way it was. I'll do that now. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:05, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Requested texts[edit]

In this edit], you marked the Request as "done". However, the text still does not exist on Wikisource; you have simply set up an Inde page where the document may be transcribed. Requests are not fulfilled until the text exists in a complete form on Wikisource. An Index page linked to a scan is a good start, but it is only the first step in getting the document hosted here. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:42, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
