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!
Thanks for the submissions :) Unfortunately, there are a few problems...
- I assume that you did the engraving yourself... it looks very nice :) However, it uses fonts which are not on most people's computers, and so the notes do not show up on computers which does not have the fonts installed (like mine). This means that you will need to create the PDF file with embedded fonts... which depending on your PDF creation method can be easy or hard.
- It would be a nice idea to have a more descriptive filename, for example: Leopolita - Cantio Tuthenica XXXIX, SWV 195.pdf instead of just 195.pdf . This reduces the possibility of conflicting filenames, and also makes it easier for the user.
- Please check the copyright of the piece; for example, Roman Turovsky is still alive, and thus not in the public domain. Of course, if you get his permission, you are very welcome to submit it to IMSLP. But that's only if you get his permission...

I make my PDF on a PC, and test them on a Mac, which DOESN"T have fonts in question.Lute88 18:17, 12 March 2007 (EDT)
- When I open the file 195.pdf, I get this. I am unfamiliar with this notation, but I'm willing to believe that it is some form of notation. --Emeraldimp 20:33, 12 March 2007 (EDT)
- Wow... someone uses XPDF besides me ;) But yes, that's how it appears to me too in KPDF (and XPDF). If that is the intended effect (I've never seen this kind of notation before), then I stand corrected. --Feldmahler 20:41, 12 March 2007 (EDT)

- Nice! I stand corrected :) Disregard my complaint about this in the list above... --Feldmahler 13:44, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
