Mass uploading to Internet ArchiveEdit
Hi, thank you for offering help regarding Internet Archive! I started a requested uploads page and it would be great if you can help to mass upload the PDF scans from the website listed to IA for Djvu conversion. Solomon7968 (talk) 09:30, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
- Re from my talk: Yeah I was emphasizing mass upload, I mean uploading say 100s/1000s of PDF documents from any website (public domain of course) to IA. The new tools.wmflabs.org/ia-upload tool then makes life a lot lot lot easier to upload the files from archive.org to Wikimedia Commons. Solomon7968 (talk) 09:51, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
- Your comment makes sense: Frankly I started with a collection of 18 books because I thought you will not respond if I say 100s/1000s in the first time! I am presuming then it would be easiest to mass upload a series of journal (listing by volumes, that is clean metadata), is it? I also added the instruction to the main page.

Hello. Could you please be more specific as to what you would like to see uploaded from this site? For guidance on what we include at Wikisource, please refer to Wikisource:What Wikisource includes. Thanks! Londonjackbooks (talk) 10:47, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
Bengali language/literature content on Wikiquote(s)Edit
Do you know of any way to contact a specific Internet Archive volunteer? I mean does there exist a way to know their Email id or is there any equivalent of talk page concept there?
I have created the q:Bengali language article on the English language Wikiquote and want to add quotes there on Bengali literature. Specifically there is no Wikiquote article on w:Sunil Gangopadhyay. The easiest way in my mind to create his Wikiquote page is to add quotes from the English language translation of his trilogy: Sei Samay - Pratham Alo - Purba Paschim. I noticed the User Loswald on IA uploaded the Kakababu Samagra on Internet Archive identifier : KakababuSamagra and is probably capable of doing a similar job with the three work trilogy I mentioned. Is there any way to contact Loswald by Email or talk equivalent as I say above?
