Thanks It's been great to have you help me polish off this work and your edits are stellar. —Justin (koavf)TCM 15:47, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

Great! I had no idea that we will be able to finish it so fast! Best regards, M-le-mot-dit (talk) 17:57, 7 December 2015 (UTC)


It isn't necessary to use {{lang}} for Latin, French, German or any other language that is written with the standard Latin alphabet. The template is designed to assist with display of languages in other writing systems, such as Arabic, Japanese, or Russian. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:34, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Oh! I thought it was also used by some talking devices. Thanks for your comment. M-le-mot-dit (talk) 16:38, 3 April 2016 (UTC)


I have transcluded Telegram - Winston Churchill to Franklin D. Roosevelt (May 10, 1941) 3:38 p.m. for you. Can I encourage you to add it to {{new texts}}. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:44, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject FilmEdit

Hey, thanks for doing Frankenstein (1910 film), great work! Feel free to join Wikisource:WikiProject Film as a participant if you'd like. PseudoSkull (talk) 17:55, 21 January 2021 (UTC)


As ProofreadPage doesn't work very well for films, consider for future transcriptions saving your proofreads somewhere in Wikisource:WikiProject Film/Drafts. I set up this page for the convenience of film proofreaders until ProofreadPages is no longer an annoyance in terms of film. Format your draft page like is done in some of the finished drafts in Wikisource:WikiProject Film/Drafts/Archives. Specifically, you will need to provide the required data (such as author, publisher, etc.), make sure a ---- is between each element, and that timestamps are above each element.

After you are finished proofreading a work there, you can let me know and I will run my bot through the site with the data you gave. The bot will automatically add the Index page, Page pages, and the final mainspace transclusion, based on the information presented at the draft page. This will make it immensely easier for you, as you won't have to tediously type out, or copy and paste, all of this manually. PseudoSkull (talk) 16:55, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
