Thursday, October 19 - RequestsEdit

  • Could someone please import Sign_your_posts_on_talk_pages from wikipedia? RichMac 02:06, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
    We already have a help page on signatures. Why do we need another one? sebmol ? 09:47, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
    • Sorry, it had to do with another interlink and/or template, and I can't recall what it was anymore. I should have made a more detailed request. RichMac 17:59, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
      • The link in unsigned comments points in that direction. RichMac 18:02, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
        • I've simply redirected Sign your posts on talk pages to Wikiversity:Signature--digital_me 15:43, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
          • That only works in a search, not in a direct link, I've updated the template, and will request a removal of the redirect. Sorry for the unnecessary commentary, more learning by doing! RichMac 05:58, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
            • done sebmol ? 10:10, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Friday, October 5 - RequestsEdit

I completed Fire Investigator and also did Fire Officer. Need break now, but will try to do more later. Cormaggio 19:42, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Saturday, September 2 - DoneEdit

Wednesday, August 30 - DoneEdit

Tuesday, August 29 - DoneEdit

I don't see any problems with a c&p, so this should be fine.--digital_me 17:31, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
The whole section, or just mainpage? --SB_Johnny | talk 14:37, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
The mainpage is useless without the others, so I went ahead and transwikied it all.--digital_me 17:51, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Monday, August 28 - DoneEdit

CompletedEdit

  • http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikiversity:Productive_Forking_and_Tailoring_is_Encouraged I would like this linked to from the policy discussion and voting page. If there is a place for discussion of draft policy or guidelines that is adequate as well. Forking and tailoring the material to achieve different purposes is a fairly obvious way to rapidly expand our available materials for various purposes. However, I fear much of the local wiki culture is oriented around deleting material perceived as redundant and eliminating duplication from the database. Hence a discussion of this type of useful activity from the start may be extremely useful. Thanks! Mirwin 23:32, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
Linked to with voting and discussion at WV:RULES. -- sebmol ? 08:03, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
All done. -- sebmol ? 16:03, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
Done. -- sebmol ? 20:09, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
Done. Now located at School:Department of Literary Studies/Writing Center. Please forgive the 80,000 moves of the talk page. I was clearly not up to par. -- sebmol ? 22:01, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Imported, moving now. --SB_Johnny | talk 23:39, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
Moved, feel free to rename, but don't delete redirects.--SB_Johnny | talk 23:48, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Saturday, November 4 - Re-RequestsEdit

  • Suppose this got lost in the shuffle. Could someone please bring that Cite_book over? I don't want to list a whole bunch of sources and then re-format them later on. It would help out a lot. Thanks. RichMac 08:39, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
  • It's imported now... keep in mind that we do not have import enabled from wikipedia! I had to first import it to wikibooks, then from wikibooks to here, which I'm not sure I should really do. Now at Template:Cite book --SB_Johnny | talk 11:12, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Most appreciated. RichMac 04:38, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Tuesday, October 24 - RequestsEdit

  • Could someone please import w:Template:Cite_book and ideally all the related cite pages? (The preceding unsigned comment was added by RichMac (talkcontribs) .)
    • Currently the only way to do that is to import first to wikibooks, then to wikiversity... though in the case of this page that's fine, because it would be nice to have that on wikibooks too. What related pages are you talking about? --SB_Johnny | talk 17:26, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
      • Everything on the w:Citation_templates would be ideal. RichMac 06:30, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
        • Could someone at least bring that cite book over? RichMac 20:54, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

Old Requests for ImportEdit

(Some of these are done, some aren't. If a page is needed, please list it above, under today's date.)

For security reasons, only admins can import pages. You can list here what pages on Meta or Wikibooks you would like to have moved to Wikiversity. An admin will take care of the import as soon as possible and notify you when it is done.

Note: there is a list of pages already imported from Wikibooks that have not yet been marked with {{MovedToWikiversity}}.

Done. It's at School:Engineering. If you want to rename it, go ahead and move, but leave the redirect because that's what the Wikibooks page links to now. -- sebmol ? 12:17, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
I'm importing the subpages too. This might take a while. -- sebmol ? 12:29, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
Actually, how about you give me a list of the sub pages you want imported? Or do you want all of them? -- sebmol ? 12:32, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
Eventually we want all of them. I have requested admin status so I can help out. Pace yourself and service requests by name first. Thanks! Mirwin 19:08, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure I understand the last part of that sentence. "service requests by name first"? -- sebmol ? 19:09, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
Sorry for confusion. I meant by specifically requested titles that people list here as urgent or of immediate interest. Such as the one below regarding "proposed productive forking and tailoring". 8) Mirwin 23:35, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
Probably should move over the department subpages for School of Engineering as well, particularly Electrical Engineering :) --Rayc 23:08, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
  • http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Web_Design and all subpages. We've been working on this Wikibook for a year or so now, but it really belongs in wikiversity as it's mostly activities/challenges etc. Not sure whether Web Design should go in Information Studies or Computer Science. Also, sub topics like Javascript, PHP might cross boundaries of schools. Michaelnelson 07:36, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

How about thisEdit

Here is a list of all the schools on wikibooks, just check them off after you've imported them (and put them in the "School:" namespace unless such a school already exists. In thoses cases, I am putting the page from Wikibooks into the "Portal:" namespace and linking it to the existing school page already in "School:" namespace):

Physical SciencesEdit

I've transwikied this, and fixed all the links.--digital_metalk 02:19, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
This has subpages that can be imported. --Draicone (talk) 05:48, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
All but School of Computer Forensics and Security have been imported here. --Draicone (talk) 05:48, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Life SciencesEdit

Doesn't need importing. --Draicone (talk) 05:51, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
Biomechanics is a set of wikibooks links, should we import this? Also, school of zoology not worth importing. Oceaonography doesn't need importing either. --Draicone (talk) 05:51, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Humanities (done)Edit

Professional Schools (done, wikibooks versions locked)Edit

Computer ScienceEdit

School of Computer Science has been imported. --Draicone (talk) 02:51, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) should be added to the School of Computer Science. -- Done -- Tadpole256(Discuss)

EngineeringEdit

These have all been imported. --Draicone (talk) 05:46, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Social SciencesEdit

--Rayc 17:00, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Embedded System Engineering now exists. --JWSchmidt 15:19, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
Note that one of the purposes of this page is also to prioritize what schools are actively going to be developed right away on Wikiversity, so we can make sure that the content is here instead of somewhere else. Still, thanks for posting this message here. --Robert Horning 05:13, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
Well, I just thought that every one of these probably should be moved over at some point, so it would be good to have a list so that people see that XXX is oging to be imported eventually, as to not do extra work. --Rayc 20:52, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
If this is an unwritten policy to "guide" or "prioritize" incoming volunteers acttivities it is in serious error. Volunteers will have their own priorities and leaving their previous files in limbo is not likely to shift them from one subject to another productively. A page somewhere noted 37 files had been transwikied to date. This does not make us look like a serious going concern. Mirwin 04:43, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

I need the following pages imported and moved to these locations:

If I've set it all up right, the links at Topic:Primary School Mathematics should all turn from red links to blue links. There is no hurry to do this, just let me know. --Whiteknight (Versity) (Books) 17:55, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

The pages listed above were imported. I only imported the talk page for the first one. Since it might be possible to turn the original pages at Wikibooks into a book that can be used with additional complementary course material at Wikiversity, I did not put the ugly "MovedToWikiversity" template on the pages at Wikibooks. --JWSchmidt 18:29, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

recentEdit

Looks like Template:Mbox was already copied here. --mikeu 06:09, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
This article you requested to be imported have already been done by Darklama . Terra 19:28, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
  imported, ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 10:12, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Leaving a note that I imported Romanticism and Revolution as it seemed to be an AfD that would not go well. It was an essay/lecture type setup that seems more suited to Wikiversity - would also go well as part of a Romanticism course project that I am writing various lectures for and I am contacting the creator now. Ottava Rima (talk) 15:50, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

The following are not personal requests of mine. They are books and their subpages suggested to be transwikied to Wikiversity over at Wikibooks, either through a template or a VfD discussion. Not being familiar with Wikiversity's workings, I post them for assessment of their worth here at Wikiversity.

-- Adrignola 18:31, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Done -- darklama  19:04, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

b:The Use of English with Other Members of the Thai Academic Community among Dhurakij Pundit University’s Postgraduate Business Students is reaching a consensus for transwikiing here as part of a request for deletion and it is likely more suited to Wikiversity. -- Adrignola 23:55, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

 Y Done See log. --mikeu talk 17:52, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

b:Ten Stupid Things Beginners Do to Mess Up Their Contradance Experience has been suggested to be transwikied here instead of deleted by darklama. b:The Knowledge Which No One Can Have has been described as nonsense by mike.lifeguard who says it can be pursued with vigor here. -- Adrignola 12:51, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Import right now seems premature, there is no consensus yet for either work on Wikibooks. -- darklama  13:48, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
Neither of them are particularly useful on Wikibooks, IMO. Kayau (talk | email | contribs | stats) 10:21, 30 May 2010 (UTC)


b:Standardized English Test Vocabulary Building - does not exactly belong to Wikibooks (OR). However, it is nice to have on Wikiversity as it can be treated as a course. Kayau (talk | email | contribs | stats) 10:21, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

b:Ten Stupid Things Beginners Do to Mess Up Their Contradance Experience again and b:Lohse, Martin, b:Guide to Success and Fulfillment, b:Happiness. No consensus at Wikibooks needs to be had to request an import here; the question is whether this content is within scope here and whether custodians want the content. -- Adrignola 03:36, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

b:Happiness at least I'd be interested to import and merge with resources in development on Happiness which I hope to develop for some upcoming teaching. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 09:15, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
While true that consensus at Wikibooks isn't needed to import here, I think requesting import is premature when there is a possibility that the work might be kept at Wikibooks. Duplicating works without anyone on Wikiversity to develop it isn't good IMO. -- darklama  11:19, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
Well, b:Lohse, Martin, at least, has consensus and the the main contributor is on board with it, so you'll have someone working on it once it's moved here. -- Adrignola 03:01, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
Lohse, Martin is imported. -- darklama  13:37, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Ten Stupid Things Beginners Do to Mess Up Their Contradance ExperienceEdit

Is it possible to import b:Ten Stupid Things Beginners Do to Mess Up Their Contradance Experience? Thenub314 10:37, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

 Y Done along with all its subpages. I've hopefully not missed anything. Adambro 11:11, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Also its related pdf version b:File:10 stupid pamphlet.pdf Thenub314 10:40, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

File:10 stupid pamphlet.pdf is available for use on Wikiversity by virtue of its existence on Commons. Adambro 11:13, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

KinderCalculusEdit

Could you please import wikijunior:KinderCalculus at http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikijunior:KinderCalculus ? Please include all pages, including history, discussions, etc. Thank you. Numiri 17:24, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

This seems to have been missed so let me add a few links make the lives of the admins here a bit easier. Thenub314 10:59, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

  •  Y Done Thanks for the links, they did make things easier although I hadn't spotted your request until now. Adambro 11:44, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

How To Do NothingEdit

I would like to request the following transwiki. The following module did not fit in at wikibooks and may be useful here, but I am not really sure if it falls under wikiversity's scope, and I don't know if a good home for it, so I can't preform my usual level of clean up after a transwiki. Since the page no longer has any active contributors at wikibooks it would be a good idea to look it over and see if it fits into this project. A record of the discussion about whether or not to transwiki may be found here.

Thanks, Thenub314 11:24, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

 N Not done doesn't fall under Wikiversity's scope, and per talk here. Diego Grez 19:05, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

How To Build A Pykrete BongEdit

If you would like this, please import it, otherwise it will be deleted as per discussion. Adrignola 21:36, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

A Supplement to the Texas US History TextbookEdit

Could you please import A Supplement to the Texas US History Textbook to Wikiversity which seems to be a better fit for the project. Thank you!Tgokey 10:44, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Crochet.david 08:26, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Jon was approached about this before. He said he did not want his contributions on en.wikiversity. He is not blocked here so he could place them here himself. Ottava Rima (talk) 20:08, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
Jon has also mentioned on his user talk page that his intent is for this to be international and that some pages have already been translated into other languages. Beta Wikiversity seems like a better home for international works, where the work can be kept consistent across languages. -- darklama  20:33, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Wikibooks RFDsEdit

I believe these discussions have resulted in consensus for transwiki to Wikiversity.

Adrignola 13:57, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Done. Learning theories in practice and Spouse selection according to Baha'i writings. -- darklama  15:41, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

History Essay Format & Thesis StatementEdit

Outcome of this deletion discussion on English Wikipedia in 2010 was to transwiki but I don't think any request was made at the time. Is it in scope for this project? January 17:04, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

The request was made but there was no clear follow-up. January, if you are willing to take responsibility for this page, here, I'll import it to allow you to do that. Okay? My import will *not*, then, be a decision that it is in scope. It may need to be moved, refactored, etc. However, Wikiversity is highly inclusive, generally. Glancing at the page, it looks useful to me. I'm going to go ahead and import, just to practice using the tool. --Abd 17:45, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
 Y Done. I did not transwiki the Talk page because it had no real content relevant to the page's usage here. But if the Talk page is desired, let me know. Because I'm banned on Wikipedia, I cannot notify the Wikipedia community of the transwiki (except by email or with block evasion, and with strong reason, which this situation doesn't create). --Abd 18:17, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, I've tied up the loose ends on Wikipedia. January 18:40, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Katie HarwoodEdit

The article w:Katie Harwood on English Wikipedia is up for deletion. The consensus in the deletion discussion is leaning towards regretful delete: the person has put work into developing it as a piece of original research. Before deleting it, it seems like it might be an idea to import it to Wikiversity as providing a space for original research is really more Wikiversity's bailiwick. If the page gets deleted on enwiki, please feel free to contact me (I'm an enWP admin) and I can help in transwiki-ing it over to Wikiversity. I've tagged it with the "Copy to Wikiversity" template. Tom Morris 17:39, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

 Y Done -- darklama  19:13, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Rodger's MethodEdit

w:Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Rodger's Method > Rodger's Method. Not a good match for Wikipedia, import was suggested on the Colloquium. 62.194.104.217 09:49, 6 January 2013 (UTC)  Y Done--Collingwood (talk) 12:38, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

History Plant propagationEdit

w:Cutting (plant): Revision history > Plant propagation . Sidelight12 Talk 12:46, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Revision history of w:Vertical farming hasn't been moved to Vertical farming's history since the article started. 10:01, 8 July 2009‎. It needs a history merge or a delete. deleted - Sidelight12 Talk 04:27, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Linear function (mathematics)Edit

w:Linear function (mathematics) Looks like learning material. It looks better here than at Wikipedia. Citrusbowler (discusscontribs) 19:09, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Import history of w:StarEdit

Please import the revision history of w:Star to Intro_astronomy_college_course/Star_(Wikipedia)

This is my first effort to import the history of a Wikipedia article into a Wikiversity resource. Let me know if there is a smoother way to do this. For more information see https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Wikiversity:Colloquium#Second_question. Thanks --guyvan52 (discusscontribs) 18:56, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
 Y Done - Surprisingly, it wouldn't let me import the entire history. I tried several times and several ways, and all failed as saying it couldn't open the file. But I was able to import the most recent version, all attributed to a single author. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 19:54, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
  Thank you I tried to help you by importing the text and only got in the way...--guyvan52 (discusscontribs) 20:05, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Induced stem cells from WikipediaEdit

Please let me create a page "Guide for studying Induced stem cells" This page has moved here from Wikipedia as all of the Wikipedia content must be supported by secondary sources, as per w:WP:RS. We need to wait until all cited articles will be discussed in secondary sources. But, the article w:Induced stem cells most fundamentally relies on primary sources, where WP calls for primary reliance on secondaries. At the same time instructional and study guides that make use of original research are allowed on Wikiversity Furthermore, Wikiversity will offer a space not just for hosting research, but also for facilitating research through creating researcher communities. Wikiversity is the place for original research, including primary or secondary research. This includes interpreting primary sources, forming ideas, or taking observations. See Wikiversity:What is Wikiversity?# Wikiversity for researching

This article is a new type of scientific review - quickly replenished dynamic review. Its goal to combine the latest research results with an overall picture of achievements in the topic under discussion. See: w:Editing Induced stem cellsDmitry Dzhagarov (discusscontribs) 07:38, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

 Y Done - It imported history up through last summer and then crashed. I imported the most recent version on top of that history. It's at Induced stem cells. If you want to rename it, I'd recommend Induced stem cells study or Induced stem cells study guide. If you rename it with the words Study guide first, the article is much harder for other users to locate. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 11:08, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much Dmitry Dzhagarov (discusscontribs) 14:38, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Crisis BondingEdit

I've placed a transwiki request to move [Crisis bonding] here to Wikiversity. This article is original research on a type of emotional bonding, and the consensus of Wikipedia editors is it is a better fit for Wikiversity than Wikipedia. PaintedCarpet (discusscontribs) 22:22, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

 Y Done - at Crisis bonding. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:59, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

More PagesEdit

Pages in the Transwiki pseudo-namespace that need to be re-named, and unused redirects deleted. How does this feature work? Why and how are pages put here, and how can it be indicated when they have been worked on?Leutha 14:19, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Template:Location mark+Edit

I would appreciate the import of the template Template:Location mark+ that I would like to use in my and my students' Wikiversity projects "Editing Internet Text". Thank you. Iszmael (discusscontribs) 21:00, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

 Y Done --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 23:04, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Gramophone Company of India Limited Vs. Shanti Films Corporation and othersEdit

I request that the page w:Gramophone Company of India Limited Vs. Shanti Films Corporation and others be imported into this project from Wikipedia. This revision of the Wikipedia article appears to be original research that might be suitable for Wikiversity (it reads like a periodical article). The page is presently at "articles for deletion" (AfD) so it may change drastically at any time, but we may still want to have the essay. There is no point in waiting for the end of the AfD, as most of the participants are convinced that "transwiki" isn't a possible outcome of any AfD, and can't be persuaded otherwise. James500 (discusscontribs) 17:11, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

 Y Done -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 17:34, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Remarkable to see the deletion discussion: w:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Gramophone Company of India Limited Vs. Shanti Films Corporation and others. User:James500, you did not understand the relationship of the WMF and Wikipedia governance, the argument about "not allowed to delete" was incorrect. The Wikipedia community can basically delete whatever it chooses, and when you tell people they are "not allowed" to do what they want to do, they may well do it to spite you.
On the other hand, I've seen closes of "transwiki." Blue Raspberry was correct, however. But it requires more work, not only a deletion (which may be routine with a transwiki close, it is merely delayed), but then a request and an undeletion. I'd have suggested a close with blanking of the page and possibly page protection, of a soft redirect, see w:Wikipedia:Transwiki log. We can see in the discussion Wikipedian ignorance about Wikiversity. That's common. --Abd (discusscontribs) 16:35, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

w:Civic Chandran v. Ammini AmmaEdit

Similar to above, also likely to be deleted on Wikipedia. Please full history import as a subpage of Copyright/Law. Thanks. --Abd (discusscontribs) 01:04, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

 Y Done -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 01:47, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

w:Draft:Visual C++ name manglingEdit

This page w:Draft:Visual C++ name mangling was originally deleted because it was classed as original research. I have restored this as a draft to allow copying. Several people wanted to move it, so perhaps Wikiversity is the place for it to go. Please can someone import it here! Graeme Bartlett (discusscontribs) 07:47, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

 Y Done (BTW, original research is permitted on Wikiversity per Wikiversity:Original_research) I'm going to let you deal with the page: Draft:Visual C++ name mangling (I'm new to importing... so if I did a mistake then I apologize) Thanks. ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 12:22, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Renamed to Visual C++ name mangling. Thanks for bringing this resource here. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:31, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Wikiversity:Import/betaEdit

There is a good chance that betawikiversity: will close soon. If it does we should be prepared to import betawikiversity:Category:EN. I've produced a listing of everything that is there as of today. There's a few titles that we should skip. I'll update this in case anything new gets created. --mikeu talk 20:50, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

  On Hold until the outcome of the closure proposal is settled. (The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mu301 (talkcontribs) )

w:Representation theory of the Lorentz groupEdit

Please import this version as "Representation theory of the Lorentz group (for undergraduate students of physics)". This is a great resource for students of physics. On Wikipedia, the no-content-forking policy disallows coexistence of "...theory (for physicists)" and "...theory (for mathematicians)" etc. Boris Tsirelson (discusscontribs) 05:32, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

@Tsirel: I tried four different ways to import. There's too much history. It timed out and failed. I imported the current version to Representation theory of the Lorentz group (for undergraduate students of physics) and updated the content to the requested OldID. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 18:04, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
I see. Thank you. I did not want to make you troubles... Well, we got some experience. Really, the result is quite enough for my goals for now. Boris Tsirelson (discusscontribs) 18:14, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

w:Space (mathematics)Edit

Please import this version. I need it for this submission. (This time the history is much shorter. Also, the current version would be OK; I can easily downgrade it as needed.) Boris Tsirelson (discusscontribs) 20:14, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

@Tsirel:  Y Done -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 20:44, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. Boris Tsirelson (discusscontribs) 06:00, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

w:Template:RadicEdit

 Y Done but it was a mess. The import pulled numerous other templates. We need to look into this, so the next two are on hold for now. --mikeu talk 12:02, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

w:Template:SqrtEdit

 N Not done Please see meta:Help:Displaying_a_formula where it explains how to use markup like <math alt="Square root of pi">\sqrt{\pi}</math> to generate   and other formulas. --mikeu talk 12:33, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

w:List of Setswana medical termsEdit

I have placed the content at List of Setswana medical terms on WikiVersity. Wondering if we can important the edit history. Best Doc James (discusscontribs) 09:59, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

  On Hold waiting for outcome of w:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Setswana medical terms. --mikeu talk 10:18, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

w:Template:Coxeter–Dynkin diagramEdit

  On Hold --mikeu talk 10:37, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Please import these from Wikipedia so I can use them in articles authored here. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dc.samizdat (talkcontribs) 23:42, 29 March 2019‎ (UTC)

May I have this one please? The time has come when I need it. It's just Module:Coxeter–Dynkin diagram and doesn't seem to have other dependencies, should be easy.Dc.samizdat (discusscontribs) 02:15, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

@Dc.samizdat:  Y Done Please check and verify that everything required is imported and working. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 03:05, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! Works like a charm.Dc.samizdat (discusscontribs) 04:05, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

w:600-cellEdit

I'd like to import this article with its history as a base for something I'm working on. I'm happy to help and do any manual edits required after import, e.g. if there are template dependencies that Wikiversity doesn't support, but I don't think there are many (and no gnarly ones with deep dependencies of their own). (The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dc.samizdat (talkcontribs) 13 May 2019‎)

@Dc.samizdat:  Y Done - Please add new entries to the bottom of the page/section and sign your requests. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:15, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! I've done the manual edits to make Wikipedia: links work, and eliminated unnecessary template dependencies. The following Wikipedia template dependencies remain (all shallow table templates), and I'd like to have them imported as well (rather than eliminate them) if you will.
  • W:Template:H4_family
  • W:Template:Tetrahedral cell tessellations
  • W:Template:Icosahedral vertex figure tessellations
I'll edit their links too after they are imported. Dc.samizdat (discusscontribs) 16:55, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
@Dc.samizdat:  Y Done -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 21:33, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

w:120-cell et. al.Edit

May I also have these imported please:

  • W:120-cell
  • W:Template:Tetrahedral_vertex_figure_tessellations_small
  • W:Template:Dodecahedral_tessellations_small

Dc.samizdat (discusscontribs) 12:49, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

w:LeptospirosisEdit

Request to import this wikipage into WikiJournal Preprints/Leptospirosis. The wikipage just updated into Good article status. Would like the journal to reflect the highest quality available Wiki version of the article. Thank you. Cerevisae (discusscontribs) 13:28, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

@Cerevisae:  N Not done Unfortunately, the import is failing. There are too many changes for it to import with history, and there's a database lock preventing it from importing without history. Just copy and paste and include a link in the edit summary when you update the most recent content. Sorry. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 21:36, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
No problem Dave Braunschweig. I am unable to update the pre-print because of this one "Error: This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: New User Blocked Edit". I tried to request custodian action to unblock me but there is no response to my question. I actually have a complete template ready for the updated version of the pre-print. Do you mind if I ask you to copy and paste for me at one go from my sandbox? I am blocked from editing my own sandbox also. That's why I put it on Wikipedia. The coding is not compatile on wikipedia so you can see some codes here and there.Cerevisae (discusscontribs) 06:19, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Problem resolved. After I made my tenth edit on Wikiversity, I am able to update the pre-print without being blocked. Thanks. Cerevisae (discusscontribs) 06:26, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
@Cerevisae: Sorry, our abuse filter isn't optimal, but it is blocking more vandalism than false positives. I appreciate your dedication to getting it posted. You should be good to go now. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:32, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Johann LahodnyEdit

Hello everyone,

As this is the very first time I am making such a technical request, I hope I am currently writing in the right place and in an adequate way. If not, please feel utterly free to update this content by correcting any unintentional mistake I might have done.

The subject of the request is as follows:

The English version of the article devoted to the Czech-Austrian doctor and professor Johann Lahodny seems to be facing highly specific criteria on the English-speaking Wikipedia, see → correlated debate.

Given that this is also an investigative work that attempts to provide a scientific synthesis of current research still in progress, may I ask you to please perform a global import of the article to Wikiversity, including the entire Wikipedian history?

Once this operation would be done, the previous content on WP could then simply be subsequently converted into a redirection, as formerly suggested by one of the contributors via diff → 958403287. This would then avoid any duplicate entry.

Thank you so much in advance for your help and your kind assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Euphonie (discusscontribs) 04:58, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

 Y Done @Euphonie: I've imported this to User:Euphonie/Johann Lahodny for cleanup before moving to its final location --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 07:16, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Thank you very much. Kind regards to you, — Euphonie (discusscontribs) 09:22, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: A first trial aimed to update the hyperlinks has just been finalized. However, parenthetical referencing does not seem to adequately interact. What would be the internal syntax suitable to Wikiversity regarding this specific aspect ? Same for the terms ISSN, PMC, PMID and doi, which remain in red. Your help and advice would be particularly helpful. Yours sincerely, — Euphonie (discusscontribs) 11:24, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
Not sure, sorry --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 19:58, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: The update has been completed and the few former technical hypertextual compatibility issues that were previously mentioned above have now been resolved. Thus, from then on, feel free to upload the article to dedicated section. In addition, can I ask you to please import the page entitled → Template:Infobox medical person so that I can subsequently integrate some focused additional information into the article? Thank you in advance for your help. With kind regards, — Euphonie (discusscontribs) 09:34, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
Done - Template:Infobox medical person --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 09:36, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

Hello DannyS712. Did you get my last message above? May I please ask you to import → Template:Infobox medical details as well? Thank you in advance. Sincerely, — Euphonie (discusscontribs) 14:38, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
