Oscar Zeta Acosta[edit]

Hi Buckwheatloaf, again thanks for your work. Is it possible to add the page numbers to the quotes? All quotes need to be referenced, and if not they can/will be removed from the article, and added to the talk page. Now I determined a number of quotes, and moved the rest to the talk page. -- Mdd (talk) 11:46, 13 October 2013 (UTC)[reply]

hi :)
i have "location numbers" for the quotes i added (from the ebooks i saved them from), but is it worth sourcing them using those? is that enough of a way of confirmation to keep the quotes on the page, or not good enough? i didn't find too much discussion about citing ebooks but there's this.. so maybe?

Hi Buckwheatloaf, If the book has book chapters, these can be add. Or you could Google books to determine the page numbers. With this particular book on Google books, see here, there are two search functions you can use: The general function for all books and the particular search function to directly search in the book. -- Mdd (talk) 10:57, 14 October 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Jean-Jacques Rousseau[edit]

Hello Buckwheatloaf. Please don't use a colon instead of an asterisk as you did here. This is against Wikiquote's style conventions. Furthermore, when you start the body of a quote with a minuscule letter please use an ellipsis to indicate that words have been left out. --Omnipaedista (talk) 06:42, 12 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]


Hi I moved the lemma you started on FireIsTheCleanser to User:Buckwheatloaf/FireIsTheCleanser. You most likely created a lemma on yourself with quotes you once made online as Buckwheatloaf and/or FireIsTheCleanser.

Now this id is obviously not notable, and the lemma could have been speedy deleted. Yet I choose to move it into your userspace, because you seem to conduct some kind of experiment.

It seems to me that as sub-userpage it could be within the scope of Wikiquote, but other users/or and administrators might have other ideas about that. -- Mdd (talk) 11:30, 20 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]


Hello. Could you explain [[1] this edit? --Omnipaedista (talk) 19:14, 10 June 2014 (UTC)[reply]
