Renamed subpages of "Folk Tales from Tibet (1906)"Edit

Hi. The local style is to avoid names as roman numerals and simple for subpages of works. As the work Folk Tales from Tibet (1906) is only partially transcluded I have done some updates. Whilst we could have called these Story 1 ... Story nn, it actually makes more sense to call these by their titles as they are distinct and meaningful. This also flows well into putting the individual stories into Wikidata items. Also note that I used relative linking rather than hard links in the main namespace. — billinghurst sDrewth 23:45, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Hello! Thank you for the changes and the explanation! They make sense! Sorry it was not clear to me when I switched to numerical page names. I am not clear as to relative linking though. BR, Tar-ba-gan (talk) 10:26, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi again, I have moved some subpages of transcluded works to add "Chapter" to the subpage name, rather than just nude numbers, and updated the related Page: ns. Also I have added relative links per this edit. There is more information at Wikisource:Style guide#Wikilinks or some more general text at https://www.coffeecup.com/help/articles/absolute-vs-relative-pathslinks/ which shows what the software would actually do. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:03, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Got it, thank you! I used to do all the things above (titles of stories as page names and relative linking), and then I forgot (and I never thought those were important anyway). Thanks a lot for caring to explain everything so clearly. BR, --Tar-ba-gan (talk) 00:15, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

Chinese Fairy Book (Richard Wilhelm)Edit

On the primary page, the links to the list of illustrations are broken. --EncycloPetey (talk) 16:02, 2 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, will fix Tar-ba-gan (talk) 22:38, 2 May 2020 (UTC)

You're welcome. Also, thank you for all the work you've been doing over the past month to enrich Wikisource. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:45, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the compliment! I find that my mode of work is not great, and I am missing tools to involve more users in collaboration over the mammoth amount of books that I have uploaded and can never finish, so I guess I have to ask for your advice on that. --Tar-ba-gan (talk) 21:49, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
I'm sorry to tell you there will always be more you want done than you can do yourself. I have the same problem myself, and I think any good contributor will always see the potential of works yet to be done. You can occasionally nominate books for PotM, if they are suitable.
Another thing I have done (which I learned from another contributor here) is to maintain a list of works I'd like to see done on my User page. I have had people start working on items from that list after they saw me editing, and it led to a work being done that I did not have the time to do. Many new users are looking for works that are set up and ready to start proofreading, and some are excited to find a list of works that could use their attention. This is why my User page has such a long list of Index pages: I have no expectation that I will do them all myself, but list them anyway in case a contributor finds the work an appealing task. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:05, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Jewish Fairy Book (Gerald Friedlander)Edit

I noticed something odd when looking at the contents page of Jewish Fairy Book (Gerald Friedlander). At the left side it has a link to the source page 'iv'. But that page has nothing, rather it is the next page 'v' that starts the contents.

The main space page has

<pages index="Jewish Fairy Book (Gerald Friedlander).djvu" from="9" to="14" />

would that be better done as

<pages index="Jewish Fairy Book (Gerald Friedlander).djvu" from="9" to="11" />
<pages index="Jewish Fairy Book (Gerald Friedlander).djvu" from="13" to="14" />

by dropping the useless page /12 ? Is that the right way to say that? Shenme (talk) 22:50, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Sure! I had not noticed! Thanks! Feel free to do it if you think it matters! --Tar-ba-gan (talk) 15:03, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Very last page missing from Jewish Fairy Book (Gerald Friedlander)Edit

Letters of Queen VictoriaEdit

Would be reasonable to upload the other 2 volumes as well:- https://archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22Victoria%2C++Arthur+Christopher+Benson%22&sort=-date

As I am thinking you wanted to do the whole set? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:55, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Yes thanks for the links! I just feel bad about all the unfinished stuff though. So for about a month I was just going to concentrate on volume 3 and the letters that deals with Nicholas I of Russia first. --Tar-ba-gan (talk) 19:50, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Can you please help with the page list for Volume 3? You do it beautifully and much better than myself. --Tar-ba-gan (talk) 10:04, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
And yes, I am planning to add other volumes. Please have a look at Index:The Letters Of Queen Victoria Vol. 2, 1907.djvu. BR, --Tar-ba-gan (talk) 14:49, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
