The image is a not very subtle attempt to copy a copyright logo, there needs to be consensus that it is not in order to retain. LGA talkedits 02:28, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

That is your opinion, and not one supported by any other, nor clearly evidentiary that is a copyright violation. No consensus.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:37, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Well the up-loader was the only other participant. LGA talkedits 02:43, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Qual o suposto direito autoral que teria sido desrespeitado?

The original publication will have a copyright, and if you are not the copyright holder, then we need permission from the copyright holder to host the work (the OTRS permission requested). If that permission cannot be obtained, then we will need to remove the work as we can only host works in the public domain Commons:Copyright tags.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:50, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

File doesn't loadEdit

There is some interest on Russian Wikisource in working on Military Encyclopedia, which was published in Saint Petersburg from 1911 to 1915 (this is the 3rd edition, actually). I converted the first two volumes to djvu and loaded them (Category:Military Encyclopedia (Saint Petersburg,1911—1915)). Then I compared these files to the original pdf's and found they are worse both in text quaility and in picture. After turning on "Chunked uploads for files over 5 MB in Upload Wizard" in my preferences, I managed to upload the first volume. The second one dosn't load though, it returns me Unknown error: "unknown". On this page they say administrators may help with problems like this one, so I am asking for help. The Encyclopedia consists of 18 volumes varying from 115 to 215 Mb, alltogether 2.5 Gb. All files were published in Russian Empire and therefore are licensed {{PD-RusEmpire}}. The source of files is Russian State Library. — @VadimVMog: (talk) 02:24, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi @VadimVMog:. There are two options that I would consider for works if I faced the issue for English Wikisource. 1) Upload the PDF files, and see how they look and whether their text is suitable for transcription (it can sometimes be suitable) though the file size is the issue, and sometimes the instruction is to send the files to WMF so they can be done directly (less than ideal); or 2) Upload the PDFs to archive.org, let them be taken through the derive process, then use Tpt's toollabs:ia-upload/ tool to upload the derived djvu files. There is also a good chance that the djvu files will be under the 100MB limit. The second means is one that I use regularly.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:45, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
