Articles should be well written and spell checked; they should also follow basic guidelines regarding proper punctuation and grammar. The use of subheadings, bullet points and bold text is recommended.

 

Articles should be factual in nature, avoiding any kind of opinion pieces or original research unless clearly stated. Wikisource is not an appropriate venue for original fiction works. A separate wiki already exists specifically for this purpose: see Wikipedia's sister project Wikiversity Fiction . Authors are welcome to submit their own original non-fiction works elsewhere, however; here they can simply upload the file under the "non-fiction" banner without including it in a WikiSource article.

If a source text used in a submitted work has been placed under public domain via one of our many copyright licenses, you do not need to contribute it again.

I have made a change to suggest that links from Wikipedia should not be included in the references section. I don't think it's a good idea for there to be interwiki links back and forth across wikisource and WP - they tend to cause problems on both sides when one of the sites is updated, which happens rather more frequently than the other site being updated! The only exception might be an external link from WP (or WS) to WP (or WS) which is already present, and does not create a problem for either site. I also changed the original sentence "To reference WikiSource articles from other wikis (such as Wikipedia), simply include their corresponding Interwiki template" to "To reference WikiSource articles from other wikis (such as Wikipedia), simply refer to them by typing [[interwikilink:Article]], where interwikilink is replaced by the name of the page on the other wiki and Article is replaced by the name of your article on this site." This avoids mentioning Wikipedia specifically, which should hopefully limit confusion between WP and WS. --John Vandenberg (chat) 20:11, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

 

Wikimania 2009 presentation [ edit ]

infobox [ edit ]

 

Can we get an infobox on wikisource? EncycloPetey 02:07, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

 

Not really sure how it would work with the way that works right now. Maybe if someone wants to research how it might be accomplished or something.-- Birgitte SB 20:34, 19 March 2010 (UTC) If you're looking for a generic online encyclopedia template, you can check out Wikipedia:WikiProject Encyclopedias for one that might be usable as-is. — Krun 10:49, 20 March 2010 (UTC) Thank you. I have tried to make a start with this template and infobox1 but it doesn't really fit.-- Birgitte SB 16:32, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

 

New namespace [ edit ]

 

I'd like to propose we move everything to the "Bible" namespace. This makes sense from several points of view: - The name WikiSource could be easily confused with wikisource (wikimedia project). Our goal is not to present original texts taken from Wikisource; - On Wikipedia there are three different namespaces dedicated to the bible: en:, de: and ru:. This suggests we should follow this model; - When we use "Bible" we speak of all three books, instead of using the names Old and New Testament only. I think it's important not to mix up biblical criticism with religious dogmas. If someone is looking for something about the historical Jesus or some modern interpretation on John 8,42, they are not interested in what Justinian has said on this matter centuries ago.--BirgitteSB 11:24, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
