Welcome ! Bienvenue ! Yann 14:52, 29 July 2011 (EDT)

The Bible


Could you add the translator and the date of first publication? That's needed for all works to ascertain the copyright status actually: author, and translator if the work was translated. Thanks, Yann 04:01, 26 August 2011 (EDT)

These are self-translations. I hope that this does not put them out of scope. Obviously, the original document is out of copyright.--Poetlister 12:12, 26 August 2011 (EDT)

The Perfect Life


Please think to correct the links when you create a disambiguation page. Thank. Marc 05:04, 31 January 2012 (EST)

Sorry about that. I'll do it next time.--Poetlister 03:30, 5 February 2012 (EST)


I have acceded to your e-mail request to become an administrator. If I remember correctly, a few years ago you were the subject of some controversy on a certain family of other sites. I hav not allowed that to affect my present decision. Eclecticology 15:54, 18 May 2012 (EDT)

Very happy to hear this, Poetlister has brought lots of poetry to Wikilivres. --Zephyrus 16:28, 18 May 2012 (EDT)
I am very grateful. Thank you.--Poetlister 07:59, 19 May 2012 (EDT)


I’m liking your comprehensive approach to an author. This is valuable when so many conributors provide only a scattered assortment of their chosen author before going away forever. I have only one small criticism about the author page. The overall three-column approach has its ugly side, as with The Bird of Paradise collection which is partly at the bottom of the first column, and partly at the top of the second. Would it work to have the three-column approach done separately for each collection? Eclecticology 14:59, 23 June 2012 (EDT)

I have a couple of ideas and will try them out so you can see what they look like.--Poetlister 06:22, 24 June 2012 (EDT)
The results look good! There are some nuts and bolts that I want to examine, but I can get back to you later on that. Eclecticology 14:33, 24 June 2012 (EDT)

I thought you might enjoy the passing reference to Davies in Review:de la Mare:Poems, 1901 to 1918 (Fairley). Eclecticology 02:37, 1 July 2012 (EDT)

Thanks. Actually, that article mentions other poets I intend to work on, including de la Mare.--Poetlister 05:37, 1 July 2012 (EDT)


I have undone your change of this on Workmen’s Compensation but not in the others. The reason is that for this occasion the "sic" appeared in the source text. My suggestion is that the template should only be used when we originate it. Your action makes me wonder whether an original "sic" should be followed by a "sic" template to show this fact. :)


Your criticism is well-founded. I apologize for the slowness of the site. My personal inability is on the technical side. I would love to find someone who is competent in this. Lately, I'm also having to deal with significant spam attacks. Eclecticology 23:26, 29 May 2013 (AKDT)


Congratulations about finishing the Davies poems. It looks like that was a big load of work. Keep it up. Eclecticology 02:40, 24 February 2014 (AKST)


It looks like A Lesson to My Ghost and A Lesson To My Ghost by John Drinkwater are duplicate files. I'll leave you to decide which should be kept. Eclecticology 11:00, 3 June 2014 (PDT)

Oops! Fixed.--Poetlister 15:01, 4 June 2014 (PDT)

Welcome again!

Happy to see you back here!
