Wikisource:WikiProject NSRW[edit]

I would like to see an story annoucing this Wikiproject which has been ongoing but was just recently formalized,--BirgitteSB 02:02, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Uploads — spoilsport here[edit]

I am not sure why we would want to necessarily celebrate and advertise enWS uploads. We still prefer people to upload to Commons, and such an expression of congratulations might be seen as an encouragement. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:01, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

That was more of a summary of the wikisource items on Meta:Wikimedia News. I've added a bit to the sentence to try to attenuate any encouragement. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 13:36, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
Ugh! Removed it over there. Thx — billinghurst sDrewth 15:22, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Inactive?[edit]

Hey there, I've noticed this project has been inactive for some time. Are there any plans to revive it in the future? Cheers,C. F. 12:58, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Nobody has talked about Wikisource:news. Probably a better topic to discuss on WS:S. We are truly good transcribers, though not the best communicators. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:12, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Sure thing, I'm not really the freest of editors right now; maybe someone could chip in. C. F. 13:36, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
I think it'd be a good thing to have a news thing that could be sent out to the world every month. I think it'd have to have a pretty low barrier of 'newsworthiness' though, to ensure people felt able to add items (because really, what are the chances of getting more than a couple a month?). Maybe a button at the top of the Scriptorium? Next to 'New topic', 'Ask for help', we could have 'Report recent news' or something. — Sam Wilson ( TalkContribs ) … 23:23, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
