Re: Project: Link Wikipedia pages to LibriVox recordings

Just discovered this topic....I'll be finishing a solo project soon, and am a seasoned Wikipedia editor and webmaster. Can I assist with this work here? You can message me directly. I can't quite figure out exactly what needs to be done. Hi Melanie. I'm an extremely lame LibriVox contributor (and I...

Re: Project: Link Wikipedia pages to LibriVox recordings

Evidently my notes were insufficiently explicit. I'll expand: b1171 Ion false link problems (as noted in my previous post) As suggested, this is explained in a previous post, which I'll repeat: I've discovered an interesting problem -- which will occur very seldom. Consider {{Librivox book |title=Io...

...and again, a few notes, in case you care:

b6980 Vairagya Shatakam LV book forms part of the WP work
b6631 Twenty Two Goblins LV attribution to Dandin is wrong
b10196 Works and Days, The Theogony, and The Shield of Heracles LV cover graphic not displaying correctly

Cheers. Phil.

Re: Project: Link Wikipedia pages to LibriVox recordings

More news: I've place a couple of templates on specific Upanishads (don't worry, I'm keeping a list which I'll post at the end of my session). While I've double-checked that I'm creating the correct specific link (e.g. {{Librivox book |title=Maitrayana Upanishad |author=Unknown}} ), these templates ...

Re: Project: Link Wikipedia pages to LibriVox recordings

I've discovered an interesting problem -- which will occur very seldom. Consider {{Librivox book |title=Ion |author=Plato}} . The title is such a common string that, even when the author is specified, we get several false hits. (There are works by Plato on Librivox which contain "Vers ion " or "Defi...

Re: Project: Link Wikipedia pages to LibriVox recordings

Hi. I'm beginning to review your catalog and the associated Wikipedia pages. I wonder if there isn't a need for an additional status -- which logically would reside at either -0.5 or +0.5 in the current list: Checked. Currently no such Wikipedia article . I recognize that, once so marked, some of th...

Re: Request for more LGBT content

This appears to be a good resource: http://www.glbtq.com/subject/literature_a-b.html Far from one convenient list of PD works, it comprises a large number of fairly in-depth articles. To find PD works, it looks like one would have to pick a language, then era, viz (going backwards in English): http:...

Re: Comedies by Holberg

3 more PD translations by Hime: https://archive.org/details/threecomedies00holb The plays in soupy's suggested book are generally considered more important works, and my suspicion is that they are probably better translations, too. So I'd probably go with the Campbell book over Hime. But the bigger ...

Re: ~OPEN [PLAY] Double Falsehood by Lewis Theobald-mas

I'd like to have a go at #2: Duke/Fabian/Master, if I might. In case you care, I'm male with a Midwestern American accent -- as Theobald surely intended. Also this will be only my second LV recording, so please let me know if I neglect any pertinent details. I think BCs should have some degree of ch...
