Authors

Please see the new proposal Wikisource:Scriptorium#Featured authors. Regarding the suggestion there of shortlisting some notable authors, almost all notable English language fiction writers are covered by either w:Bartleby.com (see User:Quadell/Bartleby for details) or Project Gutenberg but with the caveat that many of those aren't supported by page scans.

Regarding non-fiction works, they can either be direct translations or academic scholarship. For direct translations the Sacred Books of the East series and for academic scholarship, works by "named chairs" holders at Universities are a good starting point.

So now we need to a) make a list of which fiction writers needs to have their page scans uploaded to Commons. It will take 2 seconds per DjVu file by the new Help:IA-Upload tool and b) identify major literary/religious works which aren’t covered by the Sacred Books series and c) identify academic works which can be cited at Wikipedia.

Author:Plato, Author:Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Author:Rabindranath Tagore, Author:Samuel Langhorne Clemens, Author:James Joyce - my initial thoughts on WS Author pages with some reasonable content, notable as candidates to be featured. -- DutchTreat (talk) 11:23, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
