User talk:Desi


Dear Desi,
Welcome to the IMSLP! We would like to thank you for contributing.

Please visit our Contributor Portal to learn more about contributing to IMSLP.

The Tutorial provides you a basic introduction to using this site. If you wish to contribute music scores, you will find all the details in the page How to Submit a Score. In addition to that, it is advisable for you to have a basic understanding of copyright law. In case you aren't able to find something you want to know in those pages, you can leave a note on the forums.

Please consider putting the Babel tags on your user page, to tell others which languages you speak. You can also use the Babel system to find users who speak a certain language.

You can communicate with other users by placing a message on their talk page (click on a user's name, and then on Discussion), just like I did on your page. When logging on the next time, this user will get a notification of a new message. Replying to these messages can be done on your own talk page, or on the corresponding user's talk page. Note that there will be no notification for the other user when replying on your own page. It's always a good idea to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~), which automatically adds your user name and a datestamp.

If you want to discuss something with the whole community, you can post a message in the IMSLP forums. For very important messages, please contact the staff directly via the IMSLP staff contact list.

Frequently asked questions can be found on the FAQ page.

We're looking forward to your next submission!


Hi Desi! It was a nice idea editing the featured scores list; it was stagnant for too long :) However, the number of scores was too many... so I changed it to another set of files. Your selection was quite good though, and I'll be including some of them in the future :) --Feldmahler 18:09, 5 April 2007 (EDT)

Including publication information

Hi Desi. Thanks for all your submissions so far. If you could, whenever you know the information if you could include it in the record for the composition and in the file itself it would make the admins. jobs much easier. For example, please include things like page count and some publisher information when submitting a file. Thanks again! Daphnis 19:12, 3 August 2007 (EDT)

Satie works

Hi Desi. I'm sorry to report that very unfortunately your Satie Ogives upload is not in the public domain. While the work was written c1886 it was only published for the first time in 1965. And to remind you about Canadian copyright policy, first-published works are granted a copyright period of 50 years, and in this case your uploaded edition was published in 1986 by Peters. Although I don't own this edition nor know for sure if it has been edited, I can tell you no edition of the Ogvies would be public domain anywhere in the world. If you're wondering which Satie piano works are still protected under copyright, see my list here: And as far as I know, I've finished uploading any piano works by Satie that are not in the public domain. Let me know if I might have missed one and I'll put it up! Daphnis 23:37, 12 August 2007 (EDT)


Dear Desi, Please pay attention to our guidelines for contributors. Espla, who died in 1979, is still under copyright in Canada, the EU and elsewhere. Carolus 14:17, 27 August 2008 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)
