Tom Lehrer

Hey, welcome to Wikisource - I saw you were the one doing some work on the Tom Lehrer songs - awesome! I've done a handful, but oddly am only proofreading the ones I "know" because I can bop along in my head as I type and read the words :) It occurred to me we might want to create a subsection of Category:Humor and Category:Song lyrics and create a new Category:Humorous song lyrics so these sorts of songs can be reclassified under only the one category (which is a child of the other two categories)...did you want to go ahead and try creating it? Peace.salam.shalom (talk) 16:36, 5 December 2020 (UTC)

Hi, and thank you! I've been having a lot of fun discovering more of his songs. Humorous song lyrics sounds like a great category to have; I'll go ahead and make it. CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 10:23, 6 December 2020 (UTC)
Excellent, I found one non-Lehrer song I'll add to the category for now - if you have questions feel free to ask me, I'm new myself but I've been harassing people into telling me all the secrets of the place so I learned a couple of tricks for fixing pages and stuff so far. If nothing else works, just go poison pigeons in the park and come back to Wikisource later! :) I just learned yesterday, regarding this, that you can just use "include=101" instead of "from=101 to=101" if it's a single page btw - if that's a timesaver for youPeace.salam.shalom (talk) 10:56, 6 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, that is helpful! One question I have is, how do I add pages to the index? I noticed that the George Murphy "Addenda" and "Campaign Song" have been uploaded but aren't on the index. CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 13:44, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
That I don't know, I've heard rumors it can be done...or at least that pages can be deleted. But in the meantime I think it's fine to just have them as separate PDFs...people are looking at Author:Tom Lehrer to find the songs, they don't really look at the PDF/DJVU files I don't think typically (unless they're editors working on it) Peace.salam.shalom (talk) 04:40, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

missing pages — ko:Index:倭語類解.pdf

Could I request that you fix this PDF as well? One half of two pairs of pages (?folios?) are missing: pages 17a and 35a. Suzukaze-c (talk) 09:30, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

@Suzukaze-c: Sorry for the late response! I'm afraid I don't read Korean and wouldn't feel confident I'd identified the pages correctly. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 01:15, 23 March 2021 (UTC)
I missed the notification here, oops --
The pages are decorated in pairs on the edges, which makes it fairly easy to spot. Knowledge of Korean isn't necessary. ^^ Suzukaze-c (talk) 22:57, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Author linking from Wikidata

Hi. English Wikisource has set up its author pages to use as much data as possible from Wikidata. So what you can do is create an author page with the for bits of data, and then add the enWS author page interwiki link to the corresponding wikidata item.

My linking at John Gadsby Chapman (Q2659120) => d:special:diff/1350736129, then my trimming the author page here special:diff/10881219.

It is explained in more detail at Template:author. We are looking to make the most of the dynamic global data collections of Wikimedians, rather than be caught with static data here. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:26, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Stage directions

Hi, we've a couple of possibly useful templates for dialogue and plays. {{Playscript}} and {{rbstagedir}}. If you need line counts, then {{pline}} is used. To see all of these in use have a look at Page:Romeo and Juliet (Dowden).djvu/138 (randomly chosen page). Beeswaxcandle (talk) 01:41, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for the links! {{Playscript}} looks like it's almost exactly what I need. CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 02:32, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

GPB in the Main space

Hi! I made the wikidata item for the Project of the Month and I would like to move the Main from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1926). The discussion at the index page is being managed poorly by me.

I would like to use the Main to list, in this case, this version you have started (so nicely at the Index) and the films -- in less than three years, the film can be captioned here. And gutenberg maybe has an unsourced version that can go on that list.

Usually, I do illustrations, so having the Main available for different versions that have different illustrations is my goal -- but lately it is to have everything together at wikidata. I spent some months moving fairy tales out of Main, and poems, and songs. It is easier if they start somewhere else.

I don't like it much when my work gets changed without a nod to me -- so that's why I am here. Bothering (either "you" or "to mention it").--RaboKarbakian (talk) 22:13, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for the heads up! —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 02:53, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

{{unlinked}} applied in some cases where it shouldn't be

Hi, I see you've been tagging many pages with {{unlinked}}. In some cases this has been really helpful to me, highlighting works where I left something important undone. But in others, it's not accurate, because the work is automatically included on a page. I suppose whatever process you're using isn't detecting these. Maybe something to bring up at the Scriptorium? Here's an example: Oregonian/1908 -Pete (talk) 18:19, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing that out! My process was just going through the Orphaned pages, so I should have checked if the page had been linked elsewhere since the cache last updated. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 23:31, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Anderson v. Liberty Lobby

I played with the first page of Index:Anderson v. Liberty Lobby, Inc., 477 U.S. 242 (1986).pdf and I'm having serious misgivings of what this text is. I don't think it represents a direct copy.

Looking at United_States_Reports/Volume_477 I find a link to OpenJurist, whatever that is. At w:Anderson_v._Liberty_Lobby,_Inc. another link to Justia. Another link to FindLaw.

Finally, presumably the "real thing" at

This text doesn't seem _like_ any of these? Is it a spurious teaching text? What to do with this? Shenme (talk) 05:34, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

I think the thing to do in this case is to put these findings on the discussion page for the work, and tag the work with {{fidelity}}. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 04:54, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
@Shenme: Update: I have done this. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 01:11, 23 March 2021 (UTC)


You plan to find the other 13 volumes of this multi-volume work and the first series? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 09:23, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

@ShakespeareFan00: I wasn't planning on it; I added this work because Against Jovinianus is sourced from this text and needs cleanup which will be easier if it's backed up by a scan. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 01:10, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

The Ancient Scriptures and the Modern Jew

Please do not make moves like you did with this work without consulting with the community. There are some things that we will simply leave, especially for old works, especially where they are unsupported by scans. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 08:45, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

More, I can see there is a little more to this. Please do not overwrite existing works. Please start a new transclusion for this work, and when you have it in place, the community can make a decision what to do about the old work. We can work out whether to keep the older version or to ditch it. — billinghurst sDrewth 08:50, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
I am going to guess that we will look to a complete replacement, however, overwrites have been problematic recently, and we are looking to improve some problematic processes that we have had. Looking to a community review process so that we are properly capturing and updating all components that should take place. There has been system issues. :-( — billinghurst sDrewth 10:02, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
Apologies. I'll be more careful about that in the future. — CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 08:29, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

Why are you removing TextQuality?

e.g. (koavf)TCM 05:05, 6 July 2021 (UTC)

@Koavf: The idea was that in many cases where the text is transcluded, {{TextQuality}} is redundant to the bar on the left and the index-proofread/validated check mark (if there is one). In cases where the work isn't in Category:100%, the TextQuality indicator is also likely to become outdated as people work on the pages. However, this consideration does not apply to works like the one you linked that are 100% and whose indices are validated, so I should probably leave those alone. —CalendulaAsteraceae (discusscontribs) 03:13, 9 July 2021 (UTC)

Brooklyn Eagle/1896/05/10/An Ancient Masonic Body

Amazing job formatting, did it take you the full hour and a half to format? I spent 8 hours identifying people in a photograph for the Library of Congress yesterday, looking through the census and passport photos on for the people named in the photo. See: commons:File:W.H. Barling, Gen. Wm. Mitchell, Maj. Martin, Maj. A.S. Robins, Mr. Carisi, Lieut. Dickman, Lieut. Blackburn LCCN2014716195.jpg --RAN (talk) 15:56, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

@Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ): Thank you! I didn't spend that long on the formatting, but proofreading took a while, and so did making sure all the wikilinks pointed to the right place. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk | contribs) 02:54, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

Presidential Proclamations

I kinda got sidetracked from working on scan-backing those (been working on this w:List of United States federal legislation, 1789–1901... and yes, I'll refactor it into lists like w: eventually.) Once I get through with volume 1, I'll probably hop try to get those done through Trump before doing wandering off again. That particular one got 'mixed up' because I accidentally uploaded it to Commons under the wrong filename (and transcribed it here before I noticed) so I was waiting on a Commons filemover.
