Transcription[edit]

Hi,
From these comments came to my mind e.g. these talks of the user Ezhiki:

What is Your opinion? Is Ezhiki a "transcription dictator" of the English Wikipedia?

Ἡ Βικιπαιδεία ἑλληνιστί[edit]

Wikipedia-logo-v2-grc.svg

Hi there, I am contacting you here as this seems to be the wiki you are most active in. There is currently an ongoing proposal with regards to having an ancient Greek Wikipedia, accompanied by an active incubator wiki that has plenty of articles already. I thought I would let you know as you have an interest in ancient Greek, so you're more than welcome to participate if you find it worthwhile. Gts-tg (talk) 13:09, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Marcus Aurelius Meditations (Bengali) in Wikisources[edit]

Hi, Andreas, I have found that there is a Bengali translation of Marcus Aurelius available in Wikisources (https://bn.wikisource.org/wiki/মার্কাস্‌_অরিলিয়সের_আত্মচিন্তা) and I wanted to add the information about it to the Marcus Aurelius Meditations (https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Meditations) (Q1152283) where there are links to various other national translations, and where some minutes earlier I have successfully added the Polish translation. But I wasn't able to, as I have received the message: "The link bnwikisource:মার্কাস্‌ অরিলিয়সের আত্মচিন্তা is already used by item Q26937308. You may remove it from Q26937308 if it does not belong there or merge the items if they are about the exact same topic." So I wanted to merge them. As per Help:Merge I should merge the newer (higher number) and having less items object to the older one, having more links (i.e. I should merge the Bengali Q26937308 to the English/Greek/French/Hebrew/Esperanto/Polish Q1152283) - I have tried but I couldn't do it, maybe I heve been doing something wrong, but it seems to me too complicated. Maybe you know how to do it? Please, do it. noychoH (talk) 12:26, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

The problem was that there is an entry in Wikidata for the Bengali translation of the work, and the Wikisource article was linked to it. See wikidata:Q26937308 I removed that link and added a link at the generic wikidata record of the book. Andreas  (T) 16:17, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
