User talk:Grantco


Dear Grantco,
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!


Hello Grantco, please do not create empty composer pages. Thanks for contributing --Leonard Vertighel 06:01, 10 August 2007 (EDT)

Blank pages are never intentionally created :-) grantco


Re: your emails

  • Category:Smith, John Christopher has been deleted as per IMSLP:Score submission guide#Creating a new composer page, "Composer pages which are still empty 24 hours after their creation may be deleted without further notice." This is basically to avoid cluttering up the composer list with pages that have no content - normally there should be no need to create composer pages more than 24 hours prior to submitting some scores to them.
  • Lesson in F Minor (Greene, Maurice) was deleted on July 31 by Carolus as per IMSLP:Permissible licenses#(Re)Typesets "the only permissible copyright licenses for re-typesets of public domain works are "cc by 3.0" and "cc by-sa 3.0". "Public domain" is not permitted because it is not a valid license in the EU."
  • Category:Greene, Maurice was subsequently deleted because empty.

Hope this clarifies the issue. If you have further questions, you may reply in this page, or post in the forums. --Leonard Vertighel 14:20, 10 August 2007 (EDT)


Please don't submit files as separate pages! It makes downloading and other things much harder.-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 12:20, 13 May 2009 (EDT)

One-Page files

Dear Grantco, Please do not upload one-page files here (unless the piece happens to be a single page). There are several free utilities which enable you to merge single-page PDFs into a multi-page file. I fixed the Goodwin piece but you will need to deal with the Sheeles item. if you need help in choosing which software or in using it to merge the single-page files, please go to the forum. There are a number of folks there who can tell you which one is best for your system. Thanks, Carolus 14:32, 13 May 2009 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin) PS: I'll try and leave the page you created in place, as we have some tools here to mass-delete the files only.

Recent Upload

Hi. I noticed you recently uploaded this file. Is this your own typeset? Thanks, BKhon 16:40, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Does it look like a typeset? Its from the original book. grantco

Re: Kelway

well, this is how the site works briefly, and will also try an example... Some works have enough of an individual "identity", and often enough played and re (like Beethoven's quartets opus 18 nos. 1-6) that they get their own individual pages. Generally speaking, though, when you have something that was published as part of a set, say - 3 Pieces, Op.17 - then even if only one of the three pieces opus 17 is scanned and uploaded, we have a work page for -all- three pieces opus 17, and the work that was scanned and uploaded gets labeled in some way as part of the set. Here's another example - 8 Piano Pieces, Op.14 (Floridia, Pietro). This way, if someone finds one of the other 7 opus 14 pieces, they don't have to create a new page, they can use the links on the existing page for opus 14 and just add it. Similarly if someone wants to upload a scan of one of the other Kelway sonatas - or of all 6 - or of a late-Romantic transcription of the Allegro only of sonata 3 for trombone, harp and 2 small orchestras - I don't know, weirder things have happened on this site, yes? - then there's room on the page for it, as there would not be if the page were for sonata 6 alone. Yet the page is still themed enough, specific enough, that it doesn't cover every piece, just 'the 6 sonatas published as a set by Kelway at that date'. Works well in my book. Sorry if that doesn't explain it. Eric 22:36, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I guess it makes some amount of sense, but like I wrote to KGill there's a whole lot of other things I've put on IMSLP that should then also be redone to reflect this "policy." The voluntaries listed by Greene and Travers being the most comparable. And pretty much everything else I've taken from a book or publication...
