Re: Interwikis in Templates[edit]

I understand. I wasn't sure why they were in there in the first place, now I know. Thanks, Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 01:29, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Nice find![edit]

Well done finding the Kullman image. I made it display a little smaller so that it does not dominate the rest of the article. – ukexpat (talk) 22:37, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Request regarding commons[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you are an administrator on Commons, so I decided to apply to you with this request. My commons account is blocked for several days and nobody responds to my unblock request. Could you please address the issue here. Thank you very much in advance. -- Ashot  (talk) 16:03, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

This problem has already been resolved. -- Ashot  (talk) 17:58, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

The Signpost[edit]

Hi Jean-Frédéric: thanks heaps for your story on the BnF. I've just copy-edited it. My impression is that it's very very technical. I wonder whether it's possible to bring it down a notch or two—through brief explanations or substitutions of the abbreviated items—so tech-dummies like me can get a sense of the basic technical challenges, achievements, etc. I can go through it again if you want to leave inline suggestions next to mine, or whatever you feel is easiest for you. Tony (talk) 12:15, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi Tony,
Thanks for the copy-editing : as I am not a native, I’m sure it needed a good prose polishing!
Being so much involved in the project, I do not find it that technical. I mean, it could have been worse: the technical report we are writing at the moment is already 16-pages long ;-). But I do trust your judgement on that.
The thing is, this is really an update on the technical part, which is now finished after five months. The 'political' part is done since April, and there is nothing fancy happening on the Wikisource end: they are, well, proofreading stuff, as usual. (If we hit someday some milestone, I'll get back to the Signpost to see if this can be of interest).
There was really no technical challenge in this final, August part (just some time to spend). Maybe it is why we did that that would be of interest? I am not sure what I can do to make it a better story, so maybe you can improve it with the following?
  • TIFF files : DjVu is the format used by Wikisource. To be proofread, books just have to be in that format. But it appeared to us that it would be good practice to save the original, unaltered files that we were entrusted with, otherwise they would be lost forever. Especially since there really is a huge quality loss in the conversion process.
  • extraction : When we realised we could do it, we though it would be very cool :-p (now that sounds so geeky!). There is no easy way to do that afterwards except for contributors to download the big, multi-page book, use some obscure software to cut the images, etc. Wikisource folks are bent into making the exact same final book, and we also thought that some illustrations could be of interest for all projects. It was meant to do the most of this partnership, for other people (eg WP editors) with different material (images instead of books).
As for "relative interest", I was not sure how to put it. We extracted many stuff like the library stamping of the books or the like (which were not part of the original books). I though this was useless, but a Wikisource friend was all like "Are you kidding? I want this!". So what I am trying to say is that type of illustrations may not sound awesome like portraits of maps, but that they really are interesting for some.
As for the end : as at first we believed we would just upload all the stuff, we did not think of any communication channel. The image files are stacked on my computer and somewhere on the Toolserver. Users can ask us on a per-book basis, and we send the files by e-mail, so it is already "possible". But it would be more convenient to have files freely accessible (that is what we are investigating).
I am not sure I help you that much, but let me know if I can be of more help.

Do you know the WP.fr equivalent page to our featured article candidates page? We are looking for foreign WPians who speak English pretty well and come from similar processes. The idea is to invite them, every so often, to be our judge for Choice of the week. My French is not very good, and it takes a while to get to know who's suitable to ask. If you know, please buzz me by email. Tony (talk) 12:37, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Congrats...[edit]

Gee, the French project sure has been in the news a lot lately =) Look here, now they broke 1,000,000 articles! Congrats: anything you want to add to the Signpost story? ResMar 02:31, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

SP article[edit]

Thx. I can integrate those points later; are you inserting the final instalment of the article? Tony (talk) 13:39, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

I see also that Reaper Eternal and SMasters have been copy-editing the text (I put in a plea at the Guild of Copy Editors). You might let them know when you've done the rest, because I'll be asleep. You could even name them ... "Jean-Frederic, with X and Y", at the top, depending on whether they contribute enough. It's very nice of them to help!

Merry Christmas![edit]
