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 these will eventually be false as Wikipedia pages are added. However, there are many relatively arbitrary collections in Librivox which will surely never have a Wikipedia page as they only exist in that particular form right here. And this additional status can help focus efforts toward links that are more likely to be successful. Or, it can focus efforts on Wikipedia articles that need to be written.

Cheers.

Phil

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 "Version" or "Definition" in their titles!) I see 4 possible paths:

(1) This is good enough. It's a rare problem. A fraction of the time we link to too many books. Who cares?
(2) In these cases we just can't place the template on the Wikipedia page, as it's somewhat compromised.
(3) In the future, try to avoid giving Librivox books extremely short titles (like "Ion") that can be part of additional false hits. Simply "Plato's Ion" or something of the like should be enough.
(4) Fix the Wikipedia template to allow the specification of specific books (here, "b1171").

Honestly, I lean toward #1 (and I have placed the template), but I wanted to alert you to the problem.

Cheers. Phil.

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 keep sending me to the general Upanishads page (e.g. https://librivox.org/search?title=Maitrayana+Upanishad&author=Unknown&reader=&keywords=&genre_id=0&status=all&project_type=either&recorded_language=&sort_order=catalog_date&search_page=1&search_form=advanced). Is this a bug or a feature?

Cheers. Phil.

...and a few notes to some of the status 2's above in case you care...

b1171 Ion false link problems (as noted in my previous post)
b9660 The Chandogya Upanishad No "The" in Librivox title.
b9005 Theodoric the Goth There is no WP page for the book. The template is on the page for the PERSON, which in my view is bad practice.
b3335 The Catiline Conspiracy and the Jugurthine War The LV book appears to include 2 works. Only The Catiline Conspiracy has a WP page.

You will notice that a couple LV books (Works and Days, The Theogony, and The Shield of Heracles and Homeric Hymns, Epigrams, and The Battle of Frogs and Mice) contain multiple individual works each with its own WP article, so that multiple LV templates were required.

Cheers. Phil.

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
