Resources[edit]

Hullo. I have a huge database over on Reddit that could supply Leftypedia immensely. My goal right now is to copy most of the resources to here in case somebody shuts down Reddit or specifically the community that’s hosting the compendium. I could however make a userpage and just immediately dump the raw source code there if you think that that would be more helpful or worthwhile than just going back and forth from Reddit to Leftypedia, plus we could use that to ‘cross out’ links now included somewhere in the mainspace. The only problem is that I don’t know how you would feel about including libgen links anywhere in this website. —Anarcho-Bolshevik (talk) 21:25, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Thanks a ton for the data. Copying it over into a userpage first would be a good way to do it. You're free to host the unedited source code temporarily, as long as the libgen links are replaced with regular citations in the near future. It can't be a permanent thing, I don't want to risk the web hosting provider receiving any DMCA requests, even illegitimate ones.

Done, and today I linked to our project in a new socialist community. On a side note, is there any chance that you could exempt me and Dessalines from the CAPTCHA programme? Because it’s really annoying. —Anarcho-Bolshevik (talk) 00:19, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
Done. Great suggestion to exempt trustworthy users from the CAPTCHA programme. I'll check out your community as well. --CyberSynGang (talk) 02:20, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
I read this for a second and albeit this is a bit off topic but whats the captcha programme? am I excluded from it? --Karlov, Commie Spidey (talk) 02:01, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
Normally users have to fill out a captcha (one of those Google "are you a robot?" thingies) when they're making an edit. It's to prevent spam. I made a usergroup for users I think are making a lot of good contributions so they don't have to do it any more. You're in it. :) --CyberSynGang (talk) 12:57, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
Oh ok thanks. Sorry to bother! --Karlov, Commie Spidey (talk) 14:32, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for converting that code for me! But the particular version that you converted is out‐of‐date now. This is the current one.

I've transferred the anticommunismkills piece into an essay, since I'm not sure if the analysis is really fit for a mainspace encyclopedic entry. Still have to add the miscellaneous links at the bottom of the article. Maybe something similar can be done with the Venezuela piece? Maybe that piece is more proper for the mainspace though.
I'm also investigating whether I can bulk translate the links on the compendium page into proper references using the Zotero Translation Client, the output wouldn't be perfect by far, but it would still do a massive amount of the work that needs to be done. --CyberSynGang (talk) 15:27, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Image licensing[edit]

Hello, I noticed that the image upload tool doesn't let you select a license for the image. Now, I see that this isn't the main goal of this project, but I think it would make uploading easier for images that require attribution, so we don't get in trouble for not properly attributing. If you think that this makes sense, I could make some licensing templates (see Wikimedia Commons for example of what kinds of templates), but you would need to add the options to the menu. If it doesn't make sense at this stage of the project, I'll wait and do something else meanwhile.--RandomSovietKid (talk) 16:43, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
