User talk:Avianne



Hi. It's normal practice here to put arrangements of a work on the page for that work; please don't create a separate page, as you did for Xerxes. Not a huge deal, just good to remember in the future. I've moved your arrangement here. Cheers, KGill talk email 20:32, 4 August 2010 (UTC) Okies sorry bout that, didn't realize that Xerxes was already up there. Avianne 03:47, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Title Case (Headline style)

Hi, The work "in" is not capitalized unless it is the first or last word in a title. We generally follow the Chicago Manual of Style for titles. Those in English fall under what is known as "headline style." Also, be sure to list yourself as the publisher, since the works are actually published according to the legal definition of the term in most countries when you post them here. Thanks, Carolus 23:54, 4 August 2010 (UTC) okies I'll try and get around to fixing that... umm.. could you fix the title for Minuet in A Op.10 should read Minuet in A major Op.10 Avianne 03:49, 5 August 2010 (UTC)


Dear Avianne, could you please insert the instrumentation in the pages you create? I know most of the Hamlin pieces are likely to be piano solo, but we have to tag them so people can find them when they browse for a particular instrument, and it just makes our tagging a lot quicker if we don't have to download them every time to see what they are for. Thanks, Steltz

I've been inserting it... maybe its not coding em right... Avianne 12:41, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

two things...

generally (though not always) we group works in an opus group under a single opus number, not individually. (site consistency is going to count more, ultimately, as an argument than how you want your pages grouped, I fear.) there are exceptions (Beethoven's piano sonatas and string quartets have their own pages, for example, as do a number of other works- but Haydn's quartets opus 64 are all under op.64, not op.64 no.1, op.64 no.2, op.64 no.3, etc. even though they are each individually masterful works. Some things are a little arbitrary. That said, also, most of the time, if there is only one "Piano Sonata No.10, Op.29 No.1" by a certain composer- for example- one leaves out the key. (I'd been led to believe otherwise and so had included the keys in many submissions myself- these were changed back recently.) So for example Piano Sonata No.13, Op.27 No.1, by Ludwig van Beethoven - no mention in the title of the page of E major (though the same rule isn’t followed by some of the pages for his piano trios for instance; like I said, not always consistent.) Moving pages actually is not that hard I think even for non-admins - I may be wrong - you create the new page, move the old content there, and turn the old page into a "redirect" to it - but will move your page and take care of the broken redirects.

Blanking the page

Dear Avianne, Please do not blank your talk page! It is important for admins to know whether they have addressed any issues that may have arisen with your uploads. If your talk page gets very full, you can create an archive to store the older conversations. (See my own page - which is rather like New York's Grand Central Station - to see how that is done.

oh sorry didn't know not to do that. Yeah I'll probably archive it soon. Avianne 04:52, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
