The so-called "Haka Mate"Edit

I like what you did, and you have done right in your translation. I went in to read the Russian Wikipedia article in the subject and it is not nearly as complete as yours. Incidentally, there is none of the legally required attribution on the Russian article. Perhaps that has to do with the fact that the legislative of the Russian Federation doesn't feel like they need to protect a minorities right to a poem of sorts. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1:9a2d:c99b:0:45:d16e:c501 (talk)

Biblical apocryphaEdit

Do I recall correctly to you had some passing interest in Biblical apocrypha? While processing WS:CV stuff I ran across M. R. James' The Apocryphal New Testament (1924) whose copyright had expired since its deletion and set up the scaffolding for it (Index:The Apocryphal New Testament (1924).djvu). I've run M&S and cleaned up the stuff that we had, but it's not really my cuppa so the rest is up for grabs for anyone with an interest in the area. It's a somewhat challenging work to proofread so I don't think it'd do well in the Monthly Challenge or similar. Xover (talk) 19:37, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered usersEdit


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Fables and ParablesEdit

On 30 Janaury 2018 you deleted my English translations of Fables and Parables by Ignacy Krasicki from Wikisource because of an inadequate copyright notice (GFDL). [1]

These translations, prior to deletion, were approvingly reproduced on internet sites. I would like to make them once again available to readers of Wikipedia and Wikisource by restoring them as they were prior to deletion, including my (the translator's) civilian name – now with an appropriate copyright notice.

It is my understanding that the appropriate notices are CC-BY-SA-3.0 and CC-BY-SA-4.0. What are the essential differences between them? Which would you recommend for this article?

I would greatly appreciate your kind response at my Wikipedia talk page (please see link, below) and the restoration of "Fables and Parables".

Thank you.

Nihil novi [2] (talk), 22 May 2022

@Nihil novi: This situation is similar to that of On Discoveries and Inventions: We need to resolve the licensing; locate a scan of the original; make sure it has been fully proofread on the Wikisource for the original language (Polish?); and then proofread it against the scan here and transclude it on a page in the Translation: namespace. Beleg Tâl is busy in real life and may not be able to respond quickly, but I can try to assist you in the mean time as we did for On Discoveries and Inventions.
PS. As we discussed in 2020, we need to keep discussions about Wikisource transcriptions on Wikisource to preserve history and context, but I'll shortly pop over to Wikipedia and post a notification of this response there. As with On Discoveries and Inventions, if you agree, I suggest we move this discussion over to your user talk page here on English Wikisource (User talk:Nihil novi) so that you can choose to get email notifications whenever a new message is posted (and so that Beleg Tâl doesn't get notified all the time). --Xover (talk) 06:43, 23 May 2022 (UTC)

Author:Abd al-HamidEdit

Any works in the public domain? If not, then we haven't been having author pages. If kept;, then we need a valid license. — billinghurst sDrewth 00:30, 11 September 2022 (UTC)

  Delete, all hosted works by this author were deleted when {{PD-Afghanistan}} became invalid —Beleg Tâl (talk) 00:56, 23 September 2022 (UTC)

Author:Josephine Dodge Daskam BaconEdit

Gday. There are works on the author pages that lead to version pages created by you, though they seem to be specific references to the works in the published journals. Might be worth putting in specific links. — billinghurst sDrewth 02:56, 30 October 2022 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: I don't see any edits by me on that page, which links are you referring to? —Beleg Tâl (talk) 23:10, 31 October 2022 (UTC)
Apologies for the poor exploration. You made version pages of works listed on that page, though the works on the pages would be considered specific for the journal rather than version pages. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:53, 1 November 2022 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I clicked on a handful of works listed on that page, and the only one that was a Version page was The Pretenders, and the two links listed on that page are two different versions of "The Pretenders", which seems to be correct? —Beleg Tâl (talk) 03:23, 7 November 2022 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: - An Idyl of the Road, A Little Victory for the General, and The Pretenders are versions pages because we have multiple versions of them. It looks like this author page just needs to be tidied up? —Beleg Tâl (talk) 22:39, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
Yes. Thought that was my indication the whole way along after you had created the versions pages that the links should be updated as they are specific, not ambiguous. — billinghurst sDrewth 09:54, 11 November 2022 (UTC)
@Billinghurst:   Done - Author:Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon has been cleaned up. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 19:28, 11 November 2022 (UTC)
