Index:The sun also rises - Hemingway, Ernest, 1899-1961.pdfEdit

Hi, Shells-shells! I came across this transcription project and a page you proof-read and just wanted to note that it is generally preferable to use straight quotes (") instead of curly ones as it becomes easier to keep them consistent given the collaborative nature of our projects, as per our style guide. Thanks! Ciridae (talk) 09:54, 1 February 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I'll keep that in mind for the future :) Shells-shells (talk) 17:06, 1 February 2022 (UTC)

SVG logos for Book PublishersEdit

Would you mind creating SVG versions of the publisher logos on the following pages: Page:The Case of Charles Dexter Ward - Lovecraft - 1971.pdf/5, Page:The common reader.djvu/9, Page:Robert William Cole - The Struggle for Empire; A Story of the Year 2236 (1900).djvu/9? I've created a category for them at c:Category:Logos of publishing companies in SVG. Languageseeker (talk) 17:05, 14 February 2022 (UTC)

@Languageseeker: They have been uploaded at c:File:Harcourt Brace & Co. logo.svg, c:File:Del Rey logo.svg, and c:File:Elliot Stock acorn symbol.svg (and placed in the new category). I hope they will suffice; I am by no means a very experienced SVG artist, so they may not be perfect. Shells-shells (talk) 05:50, 15 February 2022 (UTC)
They look beautiful thank you. Languageseeker (talk) 15:42, 15 February 2022 (UTC)
Would you mind also doing one for Arthur H. Clark Company? I found a good representation of there logo here. Languageseeker (talk)
@Languageseeker: Just to make sure—you would like this in B&W too, right? Shells-shells (talk) 02:25, 17 February 2022 (UTC)
Yep, b&w is the correct color. The cover is just the crispiest version of logo I could find. Thanks! Languageseeker (talk) 02:45, 17 February 2022 (UTC)
@Languageseeker It has been uploaded at c:File:Arthur H Clark logo.svg. The text is perhaps a little kludged together (it's just Linux Libertine bolded, squished, and stretched a bit) but I think it looks approximately right. Shells-shells (talk) 07:27, 17 February 2022 (UTC)
Yeah, the "The" and "CO" looks a bit off, but I guess that the best that can be had. Many thanks! Languageseeker (talk) 13:33, 17 February 2022 (UTC)

Index:Biographia britannica v. 5 (IA biographiabritan05adam).djvu formattingEdit

Just a heads-up, this work has the same reference nightmare as Bayle’s General Dictionary, if you want a point of reference. TE(æ)A,ea. (talk) 01:28, 25 June 2022 (UTC)

@TE(æ)A,ea. Initially it did look fearsome, but I think it's coming along nicely now. {{refn}} has worked well so far, and grouping notes together gives a mostly satisfactory end result (see User:Shells-shells/nested refs test). Using w:Help:cite link labels might slightly improve readability. Shells-shells (talk) 02:16, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
