Can an established Wikipedia registered user make these LibriVox related edits on the following Wikipedia pages:

1. Leo Tolstoy - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_Tolstoy
In the External links section change
*[http://librivox.org/newcatalog/search.php?title=&author=Leo+Tolstoy&action=Search Audiobooks of Tolstoy] at [[LibriVox]]
to
*[http://librivox.org/author/217 Public domain audiobooks] from [[LibriVox]]

2. Mark Twain - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Twain
In the External links section add
*[http://librivox.org/author/9 Public domain audiobooks] from [[LibriVox]]

Oh, my - we're doing to have a LOT of those! Thanks for thinking of it.

Anyone with Wikipedia editing access can change these, so please step up and do so! :)

Someone could probably make this their own project: Find the authors in the catalog that have Wikipedia pages, and change any links on their page to their new LV author page. I'm going to move this thread to Volunteers Wanted - Other Projects.

HOWEVER, see the first post in THIS THREAD for cautions about and procedures for adding links to Wikipedia pages.

An even better and easier way to add authors and books links in Wikipedia would be LibriVox Wikipedia templates. There already exists a LibriVox Wikipedia template but it is not working well. Examples of good templates in Wikipedia are those for Project Gutenberg:
i) For adding authors - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Gutenberg_author
ii) For adding books - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Gutenberg
