To preserve edit histories and observe the attribution requirements of the licenses, content from our sister projects should be imported rather than simply pasted into a new module. Importers can import pages from any of the English-language projects, Simple English Wikibooks, Meta, and Wikispecies. Wikibooks administrators and anyone with importupload can import from any wiki (even non-WMF).

Requests to import can be made to help in making or expanding a book, and to move works from other projects that fit Wikibooks' scope. Place requests below and an administrator will try to perform the import promptly.

Note that administrators are not responsible for moving and cleaning up pages. Please watch this page for when the import is complete and take care of the imported page.

Administrators and importers: To import a page, go to Special:Import. After import, add {{dewikify}} to the page and make a note where the imported page has ended up. Pages will by default import into Transwiki:Page's name.

Where non-free media is required in a book, editors may request an administrator or uploader to upload the file by making a request below. Please provide the non-free media rationale.

Pages with extremely long edit histories may fail to import. In this case, a single revision which gives attribution to the source wiki will be imported. While this isn't ideal, it should satisfy our licensing. Note that repeated attempts to import may eventually bring over the history, so if it fails on the first attempt, you might want to try it a few more times. Please see bug 15000 (and vote for it to get it resolved sooner).

Import and Merge[edit source]

w:List of Xenosaga characters[edit source]

To Xenosaga/Characters. Would be easier to bookify the Wikipedia page than to start from scratch. --Mbrickn (discusscontribs) 02:28, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Mbrickn: Done - Transwiki:List of Xenosaga characters. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 06:00, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Mbrickn: are you able to move the page to the Xenosaga wikibook when you're done? 2005-Fan (discusscontribs) 12:08, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

w:Golden Sun (video game)[edit source]

For the subpage Golden Sun/Setting. Would be easier to Bookify Wikipedia content than to start from scratch. --Mbrickn (discusscontribs) 04:24, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Mbrickn: Would transwiki import help you in this? Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 05:25, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Leaderboard: That would help! At the moment I don't have too many things I need to import, but that would speed things up. --Mbrickn (discusscontribs) 13:44, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Mbrickn: And Done , so you can import anything that you need from Wikipedia yourself. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 15:09, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for your help! --Mbrickn (discusscontribs) 18:20, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
