Peter Pan and WendyEdit

Our anon editor was roughly following the process at Wikisource:Possible copyright violations. I will go through and tag the pages with {{copyvio}} to follow it strictly. John Vandenberg 05:41, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Could you fill in the "source" field in the "textinfo" template on Talk:Peter Pan and Wendy. If it is strictly based on gutenberg etext 16, add {{gutenberg|16}}. Cheers, John Vandenberg 21:45, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
Happy New Year! thanks for restoring Peter and Wendy in a timely fashion; I've closed the copyvio discussion. John Vandenberg 03:16, 1 January 2008 (UTC)


Okay, so I see ten "complete" Tolstoy texts here, but then for each one I see "# Chapter 1-3 - 00:29:46 [mp3@64kbps - 14.2MB] [mp3@128kbps - 28.5MB] [ogg vorbis - 16.3MB]" and such. Do I always just upload the OGGs? What category/license do I tag on the Commons file? I don't mind uploading them since speed isn't a problem, just effort ;) Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Author:Haile Selassie 06:15, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Upload the OGGs to the Commons, tag them with an appropriate copyright tag (like PD-old-70), and also tag them with {{LibriVox public domain}}. Renaming the files is optional. In the "Source" field, put a link to the LibriVox page where you downloaded the file. In the "Date" field, indicate the publication date of the text and, if given, the date it was added to LibriVox. Here is an example: Commons:Image:LibriVox - The Scarlet Letter 01.ogg.
After that's done, use Template:Audio file to link to the recording. Example: The Scarlet Letter/I.
It's a time-consuming process. I've just been uploading the first couple chapters, in hope that others will see the incomplete addition and finish making the uploads. —Remember the dot (talk) 06:23, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I uploaded Commons:Image:Tolstoy - Three Hermits.ogg, but when trying to link it into The Three Hermits, it appears as a broken link. What am I doing wrong? :) Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Wikisource:Sheet music 06:36, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Don't include "Image:" in the file name. Also, you don't actually have to explicitly say "All LibriVox recordings have been released into the public domain" on the description page. The LibriVox public domain tag is enough.
Thanks for your help! —Remember the dot (talk) 06:39, 9 January 2008 (UTC)


Was pleased to see "How the Other Half Lives" on Wikisource on Recent Changes, wondered who had originally added it (since I had hoped to add it myself and then forgotten) - and saw that it was you. Thanks for putting this landmark book on WS! Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Wikisource:Sheet music 00:47, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

You're welcome! Though I must confess, the book is incomplete. It lacks most of the photos and illustrations. —Remember the dot (talk) 00:48, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

slow downEdit

You have raised a discussion on WS:S about use of {{header}}. Please wait for input from others before taking your own advice and making changes to works uploaded by others. Thank you, John Vandenberg 01:41, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

OK, sorry. I'll wait. —Remember the dot (talk) 01:43, 12 January 2008 (UTC)


FYI. —Quadell (talk / swapmeet) 00:37, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

P.S., congratulations on your adminship on en:wiki! If you were to run here, I'd support you. All the best, —Quadell (talk / swapmeet) 01:15, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

preloaded templates and index: clashEdit

When loading a new "Index:.." pagename, a header is added automatically by the widget, which conflicts with the Proofread Page extension which loads it's own page content. To create [[:Q Horati Flacci Carminum librum quintum.djvu, I needed to disable the gadget. John Vandenberg (chat) 08:27, 6 March 2008 (UTC)



There is bug in this script. The translator info is added when the template is "header2", but not when it is "header". Thanks, Yann 20:45, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

You can test it on Test header. I think I found and corrected it, but it would be good if you check my changes: [1]. Thanks, Yann 20:50, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Could you please help fixing this? MediaWiki talk:Gadget-TemplatePreloader.js Thanks, Yann (talk) 20:24, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

The first issue, about [[../Chapter 2|Chapter 2]] was intentional so that the "previous" and "next" links wouldn't get really long. The second issue, about override_author, was an oversight that is probably not going to be corrected. —Remember the dot (talk) 20:40, 28 February 2009 (UTC)



You are now a sysop. If you know any languages other than English, could you please list those over at WS:ADMINS? Thanks!—Zhaladshar (Talk) 16:00, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Congrats!! Sorry, I completely missed this. John Vandenberg (chat) 10:06, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Haha, no problem, thanks! —Remember the dot (talk) 19:19, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Textinfo preload in sectionsEdit

Gday. Been meaning to mention. On a talk page, when starts a new section, it puts a {{textinfo}} template into the section, irrespective of whether there is one on the page or not. Easily able to be deleted, however, in the next rendition, it would be sweet if that behaviour could be adapted. Thx. -- billinghurst (talk) 02:40, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Back from the wilderness! Nice to see your mug back around the site.  billinghurst sDrewth 14:15, 16 August 2013 (UTC)w
Thank you :) Glad to be of service. —Remember the dot (talk) 05:26, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
