I have few questions to ask about importing data into the Wikisouce. I'm
new to Wikisoure (most of my contribution is on Thai Wikipedia). (1) I would
like to import Tripitaka (Buddhist canon of scriptures) Thai version into
the Wikisource. I've already done some of them with my friend at
[[พระไตรปิฎก]] in the main subdomain ( http://wikisource.org
) and found
out that it might be a better way to import everything and split into
seperate pages. (2) I'm wondering if there is another Tripitaka in different
subdomain, so I might see how they organized. I searched from Google (site:
tripitaka) but I found nothing that I might be wrong. (3)
Then I think that I might need the Thai (th) subdomain but I still don't
know "how big" of each wikisource language should have their own subdomain.
(4) Some of the article names, we've alredy done, are pretty long since
their always have duplicate names within different sections. So we put the
parent-article names in front. And now we got another problem that they
reached the maximum length (80 something). So do you have any recommend? Or
can we have the longer name instead.
Thank you for any answer,
Hi, and welcome to Wikisource!
In response to your first point, I suggest uploading the Tripitaka onto the
Thai language sub-domain (http://th.wikisource.org
), as everything in Thai
will be moved over by a developer (if you ask them to

this helps you in organizing the Thai version.
(3) Don't worry about "how big" each Wikisource language should be; the
language is already set up, so please feel free to use it.
(4) This one I can't be of any help on, since I can't read Thai. I would
suggest, though, that you might want to abbreviate the parent name so that
it is distinct from other sections (that way you can have different texts
with the same section names but still under different parent names) but will
still be allowed under the maximum length of the software. This problem
might go away if you move to the Thai sub-domain, but I can't make any
Hope this helps,
