Hi There, I assume this is someone you know and are posting with his blessing. Let me know if not so. Thanks, Carolus 18:30, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
EN: Hi! I just noticed that you had created a Finnish version of the IMSLP mainpage. Thank you very much, it's wonderful to see the translation exist.
Unfortunately I discovered a great deal grammatical mistakes and bad word choices; almost each sentence contains a typographical error or is strangely formulated. Would you mind if I correct them? Thanks, Sakvaka 09:32, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
FI: Hei! Huomasin juuri että olit luonut suomenkielisen version IMSLP:n etusivusta. Kiitos paljon, on hienoa nähdä käännöksen olevan nyt olemassa.
Valitettavasti löysin siitä suuren joukon kielioppivirheitä ja huonoja sanavalintoja; lähestulkoon joka lause sisältää jonkin kirjoitusvirheen tai on omituisesti muotoiltu. Haittaako sinua, että korjaan ne? Kiitos, Sakvaka 09:32, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Moi, mulla valitettavasti aika näyttää menevän kaikkinensa töissä, enkä ole kerennyt/kerkeä suomennokseen kajoamaan. Toivottavasti apua löytyy. =) --Käkki 10:51, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
Hi, You have to get rid of the logos before posting them here. It also helps to get rid of metatags and other assorted nonsense they put in the files. If you can figure out a way to fix the bizarre random appearance of low-res grayscale sections (isolated pages, or even sections of a page), by all means do so. As it stands, the PDFs can crash some printers with their mixture of 600 dpi monochrome TIFFs and 150 dpi grayscale jpegs. I had to delete the ones you posted where logos are present. Clever folks over at Google, putting their logo on every page makes it technically a violation of their trademark to copy and distribute the file without their permission, even if the item they scanned is clearly public domain.

Could you give the full name of this publisher? The only Munich Publisher I know of is G. Henle. Verlag is actually just German for publisher...-- Snailey Talk to Me Email me 21:23, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
As the word translates to "donor" or "contributor", it's probably not necessary to include it in the editor field as it would have no bearing on copyright status. Carolus 19:44, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
Hello, and thank you for your message!
I don't have any orderly way of uploading the Boije collection or the Danish Royal Library material - I just browse, and if I see something that is not on IMSLP yet and I have enough information to make a reasonably intelligent attempt at a work page, I upload it. I often have very limited time so I just add one or two things here and there. (I'm at work now and grab a few moments on IMSLP during lunch breaks and between patients).
Please feel free to upload anything you can find, in any order you see fit.
At the moment I am also looking around for any composer pictures I can find on the web, just to make IMSLP look nice.
Thank you for all your contributions - I am currently amazed by how rapidly IMSLP is growing. Aldona 23:43, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
I see we have quite a few of these now... Here's the problem from a copyright point of view: If we do not know the death date of a given composer, we really have no little idea of whether or not the work is free in either Canada (extremely important) or the EU. Thus, when you're adding things by composers like Max Schulz (who I found was born in 1885 along with his complete first name), there is a high possibility that they are not really PD in Canada. It's not such a problem with earlier publications (like 120 years old), or those consisting of much older composers, because the odds of the obscure composer having lived to be 95-110 years is reasonably low. This is not the case with the early 20th century items you've been adding, however. I would suggest that you refrain from adding items in this collection unless you actually know the composer's year of death - which should be no later than 1959 - until the composer's death date can be found.

Hi, instead of actually deleting a page (e.g. Duo Nocturne No.6 (Lhoyer)), you can just redirect it to the proper page (if the file isn't to be deleted, that is). You most likely know how to do this: replace the content of the page with '#REDIRECT [[wherever]]'. This prevents any references to the old page from becoming broken, etc. Thanks :-) KGill talk email 01:46, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Hi, We established a protocol for dealing with arrangements and transcriptions since you were here last (after much discussion). When you know something is an arrangement, it should always go under the heading of "Arrangements and Transcriptions", even if you don't know what the original was scored for. For example, on the page Andante Cantabile (Sarenko, Vasilii Stepanovich), we don't really know what Sarenko originally composed the piece for, as all we have is Boije's transcription for solo guitar. When you know the arranger (or transcriber - which are basically two interchangeable words in English), always include the dates (as on the page now) so that the copyright reviewer can make a quick determination for Canada and the EU (where the terms are calculated on death date of the last surviving contributor). Thanks for such a terrific job on adding the Boije collection. I think we had some items previously, but nothing compared to what's been added in the past week. Carolus 18:19, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Any way you can unlock these before uploading? If not, don't worry, we'll do it eventually. Thanks, Carolus 02:11, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, the talk page for the tagging project is here - starting a forum thread is more public, but probably only the same people would comment there ;-) However, I'm afraid a couple of the types you mentioned may be a bit outside the scope of the project (although I could be mistaken). It may be better to simplify it by keeping the tag for electronic instruments separate from the others and introducing only two new tags, one for the general concept of graphic notation and another for indeterminate stuff. (Multiple tags can be used where applicable, of course.) Maybe 'outside the scope' not so much, but probably too specific. However, I do think there could definitely be some modification to the current system.
I just thought of a possible problem, though - your highly nontraditional works have not escaped the notice of the team, and we've already thought of a few ways to at least fairly accurately classify some of your pieces based on traditional means. For instance, I remember one example where we had it as 'pieces ; 2nar', plus the language tags - i.e. a generic piece for two solo speakers. In such a composition, which was only written in text, there are obviously indeterminate elements, but we didn't need to take that into consideration when tagging it because according to the guidelines we're largely concerned with what the composer called the work (with the exception of most early music), what s/he scored it for, and what language(s) it's in (where applicable). The other members might use that as an argument against creating new tags, citing the fact that we don't classify works based on whether they were written in mensural notation, etc. I could be wrong - I'd say it's worth a try anyway. (Graphic notation is kind of a different concept than mensural notation...) KGill talk email 21:53, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
all I have on him is that he was born "in" 1855- the dates 1856-1929 are much more helpful, where'd you get them? he edited a lot of things and I'm now putting the 'LinkEd' template on him to give him site credit for that so to speak... Eric 15:50, 3 October 2010 (UTC) erm, Wilson G. Smith...
Hi, Jujimufu, I'm trying to tag JAM+. We don't have a tag for "conductor". Does this guy do anything other than the usual conductor stuff in this piece? If so, what? Thanks, Steltz.
