Dear Friend,

may I ask you why you changed my edit at afflatus, from a good link to Wikisource into a link to, without even mentioning the link to ws? Does not linking to our own projects have a priority over external linking at Wiktionary? Friendly greetings, --Dick Bos (talk) 10:48, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Dick! Well, I don't think there is any rule about Wikisource being given priority over other sources. Some of the advantages of using Google Books or the Internet Archive, if a work is available at those websites, are that imprint information (place of publication, publisher, volume number, etc.) is often available; and it is possible to see what the original print publication looked like. Also, using the {{quote}} family of templates such as {{quote-book}} or {{quote-journal}} templates ensures a consistent format on entry pages. However, if a work is not available at Google Books or the Internet Archive, then Wikisource is certainly a possible source for the work. — SGconlaw (talk) 14:28, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
