Er, how about: how much do people here use wikisource.
think it is a great resource that gets under-used.
Oh, Wikisource is coming. Be
afraid, be very afraid. But Wikisource
reminds me (not in a bad way) of Wikipedia five years ago: lot of
potential, things not quite gelling yet particularly as far as
navigation is concerned
Or pick up one of
the point Charles made above, for example, how to motivate and start a
drive for standards in citing common external references (I'm not sure
if Charles means templates to wikisource, templates to other online
stuff, or templates producing a formatted reference to a book).
I dislike what we have in the way of generic book and web templates. But
there may be nothing much to be done at the "generic" end of the scale.
What I'm suggesting is that the "specific" end of the scale be
considered. There are numerous standard online sources; some standard
book sources, e.g. EB 1911, are migrating to Wikisource. There are the
twin points that citations to standard sources are much better packaged
up in specific templates; and from our point of view a specific template
that takes you to the Wikisource version is ideal (for example, a typo
can be fixed on Wikisource).
What would be very nice would be something analogous to the redesign of
the tags for the tops of articles done a few years ago, where they all
became coded by colour. Currently there are numerous such templates, but
