William Morgan 1620 Welsh Bible

The digitization of the 1620 Welsh Bible was still only partially completed on 2007-02-04, the last update of the kimkat page. The page states "scanned texts (23) not yet corrected". Of these uncorrected books, five of them also have the scans available as JPG downloads. Work seems to have come to a standstill. I have not been able to elicit any response from the website. Proofreading and textual corrections would require access to a printed copy of the William Morgan Bible. David Haslam 06:25, 5 August 2008 (MDT)

23 of the OT books and 21 of the NT books are also available in text format as Welsh/English interlinear editions. One curious feature is that the book of Psalms is also available in three further interlinear editions: Welsh/German, Welsh/Maori and Welsh/Russian. David Haslam 06:43, 5 August 2008 (MDT)
Counting items in the table, there are in fact only 21 books described as "uncorrected scan of the text", rather than 23 as stated in the revision history lines above the table. David Haslam 06:46, 5 August 2008 (MDT)
Recently, there has been some new activity on this site, during January and February 2009, after a long period of inactivity since February 2007. The editor wrote, "There are still 30 scans (with the addition of Yr Apocrypha 2009-01-21) to be corrected; we hope to complete them by the end of February 2009".

Nightmare page

This page in its current format is essentially useless as it is full of irrelevant links, stuff we will never attempt nor are even sure if we ever can make use of it. We should give it some serious thought to merge this and the other module request page with the help of some table and template work. As a underemployed module maker I want to come to these pages and see where I can try my hand on. Currently this is not possible. refdoc:talk 12:20, 8 January 2018 (MST)

It's not everyone's cup of tea, to be sure. On the other hand, it may just prompt somebody to dive in and come up with something useful and amenable for converting to SWORD format. I'd be sorry to see this page disappear, as it brings together in one place links to otherwise disparate information. It illustrates that we are not a self-contained community, but that we take an interest in things going on outside CrossWire. David Haslam (talk) 13:46, 8 January 2018 (MST)

No intention of making it disappear, but to make it useful, we need to do changes refdoc:talk 13:51, 8 January 2018 (MST)

It did already exist before I joined CrossWire a decade ago. One possibility might be to hive off some of the sections to someone's personal pages (e.g. mine). David Haslam (talk) 06:23, 9 January 2018 (MST)

I have no intention whatsoever to save anything which has been added without any clear rationale. You can pick through the pieces or use an older version from the history if you want to save the discards onto your pages. Please stop adding random university departments or societies which have not produced a single text suitable for us in a format suitable for us. refdoc:talk
