Standards categories stucture Edit


I created a structure into which standards can be placed by me and others.

Within minutes, you stuffed up the structure and left no explanation why you did so?

Why did you do so?

Hello, Shanel, welcome to Wikisource! Thanks for your interest in the project; we hope you'll enjoy the community and your work here. If you need help, see our help pages (especially Adding texts and Wikisource's style guide). You can discuss or ask questions from the community in general at the Scriptorium. The Community Portal lists tasks you can help with if you wish. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my talk page. :)

You might want to look at Template talk:header to make your linking easier--BirgitteSB 22:40, 29 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You are quite welcome! If need help finding anything feel free to ask me.--BirgitteSB 00:55, 30 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Poetry collections Edit

Hi, Shanel. Thank you for your active involvement with Wikisource! It's nice to see people getting involved in this project. However, I must ask you for a favor. I've noticed that you've split up a number of poetry collection, but made each page contain about five or six poems per. As poems are considered to be "stand alone" texts, would it be possible for you to finish splitting up those works so that each poem has its own page? If you'd rather not do it, that's fine; I can do the job later. Thanks!—Zhaladshar (Talk) 22:31, 3 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lots of whitespace Edit

Since I never got around to making the O_O award, I hereby award Shanel this Goldenwiki award for successfully clearing Category:Texts to be split. And further, I do solemnly declare O_O. // Pathoschild (editor / talk) 00:13, 4 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Shanel, Thanks so much for your redirect on the F Scott Fitzgerald page! You made my day!  :) User:hypothermya 23:16, 23 October 2006

Pinocchio Edit

Glad to help!—Zhaladshar (Talk) 00:49, 10 May 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I noticed that you have removed the page that I just created, and mentioned copyvio as a reason. I am not an expert regarding copyright matters, but isn't press releases in the public domain? It has been published by a large number of sites, newspapers and what not. -- 19:03, 10 May 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't know if it change the situation, but I thought I might mention that it didn't just appear in Jyllandsposten, but also (at the same time) in the French publication 'Charlie Hebdo'. In other words, it didn't just appear in a single publication, and that make me doubt that Jyllandsposten should own the copyright: [1] -- 19:28, 10 May 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

admin Edit

Hi, Shanel,

You are now an admin. Please remember to go to "preferences > Editing" and flag your edits as patrolled. Thanks!—Zhaladshar (Talk) 23:13, 10 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Politicalbot Edit

Yeah, sorry I didn't make that clear. I'm just fiddling around, I'm not really making any drastic changes. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.--Politicaljunkie 19:36, 25 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Disadvantages of using non-Latin alphabets here Edit

I have seen you moving some national anthem pages to their non-Latin native names. I consider it a problem as this is English Wikisource, not multilingual Wikisource.--Jusjih 01:12, 15 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have received your message. Please go to Wikisource:Scriptorium#Article titles should probably be limited to Latin alphabets here to express your opinion before moving them to the transliterated name of the anthem, or the English translation of the name, as we do not have a definite opinion yet.--Jusjih 02:24, 3 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Because you "Shanel: pokes you to do stuff there" Edit

Talk pages Edit

Hi Shanel. I have created this page to publish Gargantua by Rabelais on the English wikisource, but I have some difficulties with the talk page : which one of these two ought to be deleted? this one? or that one? Thanks for your help. --Zephyrus 23:36, 4 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you!--Zephyrus 12:54, 5 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:Tl Edit

Hi Shanel. I just realized that you deleted Template:Tl a few days ago (which explained why it was missing until I recreated it a day or two later). The template is heavily used (on the Scriptorium and other places, as you can see from the "what links here"), so I'm not sure why you deleted it. If you had a good reason though, sorry for recreating it. Maybe Wikisource:Proposed deletions would be a good way to go next time? --Spangineerwp (háblame) 13:46, 2 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

See the discussion Spangineer posted to the Proposed deletions talk page. :) —[admin] Pathoschild 19:41, 2 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User block Edit

Hi Shanel - you blocked User:Hephaestos I see. I'm sure you do know about this name but just in case... On Wikibooks we have probably now had 15/20 puppet accounts created linked to this vandal so it could be worth getting the IP checked - Az1568 can give you far more details than me. Cheers --Herby talk thyme 07:03, 25 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

After digging I have found the list of aliases for this vandal - let me know if you want the details. Regards --Herby talk thyme 08:47, 25 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Would you please enable Special:Emailuser/Shanel? Without this function IP and blocked users cannot easily contact you.--Jusjih 16:50, 4 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The word of an inclusionist Edit

Just an FYI, but speedy-deleting The GG Allin Manifesto rather than listing it as a potential copyVio and putting it on Wikisource:Possible copyright violations rubs me the wrong way a bit - not really bitching, I'd probably still vote "Delete" just because nothing with the term "the Sex Pistols" should be hosted here...just a "letting you know", after all, {{PD-manifesto}} does still exist.

Confirmation October 2010 Edit

Gday Shanel. Please note that your admin confirmation is due this month (October 2010), and it looks to need your attention. — billinghurst sDrewth 07:16, 17 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(sad face) though more for your desertion, which I hope that you are enjoying. I think that it is actually called life. Thanks! — billinghurst sDrewth 08:22, 6 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
