Northern Hegaz edit

Thanks for trying to help with The Northern Hegaz, but I have got it already partly prepared in my computer, and so the raw text that you add is quite unnecessary, as I am going to replace it anyway. -- Jan Kameníček (talk) 22:41, 5 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

Ah, now I can see that you have already added all the remaining pages. Well, never mind, it has not caused any damage, it was just quite unnecessary. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 22:43, 5 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
I created it just to read the contents. The subject is very interesting to me, especially the Hejaz Railroad built by the Ottomans and Germany, extending from Istanbul to Saudi Arabia. I know the value of one's work and wouldn't think of disturb it. Please feel free to reverse it. — ineuw (talk) 19:02, 6 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

Lint Concerns. edit

During the process of adding {{fs85}} and related, you appear to have some unpaired templates within Page: ns.

Perhaps you could take a second look at these , with a view to "pairing" the templates concerned appropriately? Given the comments you left on my talk page I don't feel confident attempting a direct repair on these.

I've carefully tried to resolve these linter concerns. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 13:25, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
I am going through the pages again and again. I am aware of a chapter in volume 2, where the paragraph font size was reduced and I had to follow suit. Otherwise everything else afterward didn't fit.
I expect it to be so in later volumes as well. Having some personal experience, I observed old style newspaper typesetting by Linotype. They changed fonts to fit the story.
In this case, it seems that the small fonts were chosen to reduce costs. I learnt that E. S. Cady, and S. B. Anthony were strict managers of funds. — ineuw (talk) 21:35, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

mdash spacing edit

Page:History of Woman Suffrage Volume 1.djvu/61 - Did you miss this one in removing the spacing? or was there a reason why you had not changed this one? If you were standardizing across the entire 6 volumes. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:34, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

You have hawk eyes. You will find them in projects where I couldn't tell the difference between dash and mdash, I used Python to identify them by surrounding them with space but it was wrong. They are mostly in the contents of previous works. — ineuw (talk) 20:49, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
It's not necessarily hawk eyes, it's knowing what patterns to look for, and I still get caught out by
by words duplicated over a line break sometimes.  :( ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 21:34, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
When you see duplicated words or whole paragraphs and other anomalies, change the page to Problematic. That's the simplest way to bring it to any editor's attention. Check who did the last edit, because other editors avoided dealing with hyphenated words at the page breaks and several pages needed to be redone.
I haven't the time to write clarifications as to "why", but they are based on years of experience by observing the appearance of text in HTML environment. Appearance is very important to me in regard to non-editors who read on and offline and print. — ineuw (talk) 22:27, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

Some questions and suggestions edit

@ShakespeareFan00:I looked at your contributions in the main namespace and realized that you never created a project of your own, and completed it to the end.

Why don't you? You could do anything you want within community guidelines. It would help you realize the necessity of consistency in a project.

I know that the material is here for everyone to edit. But, if you undertake a new project, I will support the notion of temporary directorship until the project is completed in a timely fashion.

Obviously, these six volumes on suffrage way passed "in timely fashion", but consider the past three years globally, which also include my slow ability to comprehend the direction and implementation of new web technologies. — ineuw (talk) 08:37, 25 May 2023 (UTC)Reply was the list of works I'd but a substantial effort into (including a consistency of style I might add). I can have another look at those in terms of main-space transclusions, but typically, I sometimes wait until issues like missing images were added, before transcluding to mainspace.
The most recent efforts in terms of 'de-linting' pages, aren't necessarily going to show up in main-space. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:41, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
I do have certain fairly big and rather technical projects I'd appreciate someone took on a mentorship role for. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:42, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

Simple temporary addition recommended for table design edit

@JAM3SP196, @ShakespeareFan00: In case you are interested:

  • The temporary addition of the word "border" following a table declaration helps to compare our result with the original. I made changes to the table design using "border" with table declaration . On the basis of the outline, it was obvious what needed to be adjusted.
  • In regard to floating tables, the best practice is no width declarations to allow the object's natural behavior determine the object width.
  • Floating tables must be succeeded by any of the following:
{{clear}} or
{{nopt}} or

Question about replacement of text with images of text edit

Hi, I noticed that in a number of cases you have replaced transcribed text with images of the text (e.g. title page, colophon, etc.) and was wondering why you were doing this?Chrisguise (talk) 05:28, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Chrisguise: I wanted to convey a sense of the original as an introduction, because we could not replicate it, so far. There is no other reason. I also used images of tables which were to large and complex to reproduce. — ineuw (talk) 08:33, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Delinting efforts and your comments on my talk page. edit

I'm sorry, that you feel that the de-linting efforts (intended in good faith) I'd been doing are 'disruptive', potentially due to the systemic nature of them, affecting more than a handful of works in which you were trying to maintain a consistent approach. I am currently thinking that the best approach would be to abandon the de-linting effort entirely, until you and the other more experienced contributors can develop some guidelines on how mass de-linting can be done in a responsible way, if at all.

I'd like to continue editing here, and would like to ask if you would be willing to temporarily mentor or help bring a specific project I had in mind from scan to transclusion? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 23:41, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

I can help, but you should realize that I can only help in my style of editing. My work is limited to my interests and end up using the same style. Afterwards, you do with it whatever the community rules let you. — ineuw (talk) 13:44, 30 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
What I was working on to get back into proofreading mindset rather than 'linting' was a short work here:-
Index:Stenotypy- or, Shorthand by the typewriter .. (IA stenotypyorshort00quin).pdf
The exact concern I had is the inter-'word' spacings in the monospaced portions, might not be quite the same as in the original, although I've attempted very hard to match the scan where possible. Reading late 19th century txtspk isn't easy. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 13:52, 30 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for pointing them out. You will find more in these volumes and go ahead, if you feel like repairing them. In the beginning, I needed to know what is going on, since my contributions have fallen considerably over the past 2-3 years.
I am aware of the italics versus double quote errors, and correct them when I check the results in the main namespace. This was the unfortunate result of my Python script and already corrected it. The script was designed for proofreading
The History of Mexico volumes which was scanned by a different OCR scanning equipment, and OCR software, used by Internet Archive or the donor.
I was under the impression that <p> is a standalone tag like <br> or <br />. Please correct me if I am wrong. I used them to separate paragraphs when the font-size is less than 80% by my calculations.
Looked at the poem definition, the footer, and {{smallrefs}}, and realized that my knowledge of templates are way outdated. Modifications and improvements made over the years to the templates, are only noticed when the change is visual. — ineuw (talk) 18:39, 11 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
<p> is not a stand-alone tag. It has to be used as <P>(content)</P> ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 00:03, 12 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Lint concern- Italics and hws.. edit

example:- Page:Popular Science Monthly Volume 22.djvu/579

Trying to wrap the italics using the HTML directly, seemingly generates mal-formed HTML according to the linter. The approach that works reliably is to move the italicisation entirely within the template parameters and use the title option on the hws/hwe pair.

I'm fixing these manually from the linter output, but would appreciate a review from yourself as the original proofreader.

I will also note that the linter/parser doesn't seem to like line-feeds inside span-based templates where the generated span template also sits wthin a DIV. That is a use case you might want to review elsewhere. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 10:55, 29 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Thanks, there are a few such cases, that I remember using years ago. But no longer do this. — ineuw (talk) 16:20, 29 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
Rather than me listing concerns of this nature individually, monitoring - will give more of these concerns. Not a high priority, but it would be nice to resolve these at some point. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 09:02, 6 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
You are a prince. I will correct them. Thanks. — ineuw (talk) 19:00, 6 November 2023 (UTC)Reply

Why are you using nonstandard page labelling on this index? Pages 1, 13, and 35 are using chapter numbers in place of page numbers. Pages iii - ix all have the same label "int", which will prevent external linking to a specific page by number. Is this temporary numbering that will be corrected when the work is finished? --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:07, 7 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for pointing this out. My intent is to conform to the standard and will correct this immediately after creating the main namespace pages. I needed it for chapter identification. I will also check all my past contributions and correct them accordingly. — ineuw (talk) 01:57, 8 January 2024 (UTC)Reply
@EncycloPetey: I have no knowledge or experience with assigning the starting roman page numbers. The {{roman}} is missing the old documentation. Could you please correct this volume? I will check all the indexes worked on. Main namespace contributions are listed on my home page, so it's easy to check. — ineuw (talk) 18:46, 12 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Using {{Gap}} within another template. edit

I was looking at this template's code and noticed the the warning about it's use within another template. And I am asking if my use is acceptable, or not. No explanation needed, just a recommendation of a safe alternative.

THIS PAGE is one example of the many, where I used Gap within {{Right}}, but never at the end as in the example, because this template was created for Popular Science Monthly. — ineuw (talk) 01:59, 8 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hmm. Did you intend to post this at WS:S/H? In any case, there's no general limitation about using {{gap}} inside other templates. The warning in the documentation is about avoiding using {{gap}} for things it's either not intended for, or for which a better solution exists. Rule of thumb: don't use it for something that's most naturally described as a "margin". The examples it gives are to not use {{gap}} to achieve a block left margin or for adding a right margin to a right-aligned block. The way you've used it on Page:History of Woman Suffrage Volume 3.djvu/441 looks perfectly fine to me: you're putting an extra gap between two words inside a single line, which is exactly what the template is for. Xover (talk) 11:28, 23 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
I don't use it in such a way. My aesthetics would not allow that. I have a decent sense of the relationship between HTML and the wiki code. — ineuw (talk) 19:14, 23 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Smallrefs with font size edit


I notice you routinely specify an explicit font size for every {{smallrefs}} in History of Womam Sufferage. I have created a style sheet for all six volumes (e.g. Index:History of Woman Suffrage Volume 6.djvu/styles.css) and added your preferred font size there, so specifying it explicitly in the template is no longer necessary. This is generally a (much) better way to do such per-text customizations (set it once, applies to everything in the book). The font size parameter to the template is in the process of being phased out, so I recommend using the per-text CSS for all your projects. You should be able to just copy and paste the relevant bit of the stylesheet to the indexes for other works; and feel free to ask for help at WS:S/H if needed.

However, that being said… So far as I can tell this text doesn't actually use any noticeably smaller footnote font than other works, so I don't quite see the rationale for deviating from the standardized font size for {{smallrefs}}. If this is about your personal preference for smaller text for the footnotes, rather than about some aspect of the actual text, then you should move the font size adjustment to your personal stylesheet (either in your web browser, or in the .css for whatever skin you're using (I see you have user scripts / styles for monobook, Vector, and Vector 2022 so I don't know which you're using). Xover (talk) 11:40, 23 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Much thanks for the changes. I compared the font sizes of smallrefs with other works, and realized that the size difference is only for my own eyes. I stop using it, and thanks for the explanations. I am using Vector 2010 with Ubuntu and Hack font in Firefox. If you come across my edit anomalies, please let me know so that I can learn with practice. — ineuw (talk) 19:04, 23 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
