Someone's being naughty, isn't it? :twisted:

Just kidding. I think it was very appropriate and a good way to divulge your work. Unfortunately I am not registered with Wikipedia... (way out of my league)

Thanks for support!
Aren't you tired of those CAPTCHAs? It only takes a minute to register on the forum ;)

Although I usually prefer not to (don't really mind the catpchas, see below) if the choice is given (so many forums, so little time :roll: ), I'll be registering here as penance for my earlier miserable blundering with the forum threads. :oops:

PS: as a librarian, I can't escape making the suggestion that, since you're using captchas to prevent spam on the forum, maybe you could implement reCAPTCHA to that effect and provide indirect and free help with book digitising efforts...

No problem, if you are more comfortable unregistered, feel free to continue that way))

I'd be happy to, but since I use a shared hosting (HostGator) I'm not sure I can install it on this phpBB forum. I've found a plugin to do it, but installing it requires running some programs on the server and I'm not sure I can do it. Maybe you can give me some help on this?

I am kind of swamped right now (new management chores...), but I promise I'll look into it. :roll:

Todd, thank you very much for uploading a screenshot! :P

Unfortunately after relentless Wikipedia admins cut the article, there's hardly any people coming from Wikipedia anymore.
(And for some reason they are much more tolerant with NotesHolder, what in my opinion is just unfair.
But life's unfair - that's hardly any news :) Time to get used to it)
I'm not going to edit that article myself anymore. It's hardly worth it, risking to get another "conflict of interest". I'll better keep improving CN;)

No Problem! I'm glad they did finally remove the conflict of interest flag! For a while I wondered if they saw me as a dev as the COI stayed up quite a while after I started editing the page. I've never really liked the way some admins are not very consistent...maybe when I have time I'll ask in the page discussion how to improve and why things are acceptable in other articles.
