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 there Rexmager! Before your upload can appear on IMSLP, you will have to finish the remaining steps in the score submission guide. Thanks for the upload! :) --Feldmahler 21:21, 28 February 2007 (EST)
Befiehl dem Herrn deine Wege
Hello! Two remarks about Befiehl dem Herrn deine Wege:
- You created a work page for each translation. I joined them; one work page for one work.
- The editor is Paul Tsesenko in the file, but you submitted your own name. Are you him? If not, do you have permission to distribute his works?
Cheers, Peter talk 15:21, 5 May 2007 (EDT)
Answer: I do - he is a collegue of mine and I have his permission.
Sinfonia from Cantata
Hi Rexmager! I've fixed the problem with the Sinfonia page... it may be a good idea to use the official create work special page (there's a link to it on the composer page) when creating work pages to prevent problems like this in the future. Thanks for the submissions! :) --Feldmahler 15:31, 5 May 2007 (EDT)
Thanks, Feldmahler! I really botched that one up... Tried to delete the page, but it wouldn't let me.
Great job you do!
Hi Rexmager! I know you've said that Paul Stetsenko is your collegue and that you have his permission for Befiehl dem Herrn deine Wege, but I wanted to ask whether you have permission for all the files that you've submitted which he edited. If you do, IMSLP admins will be able to treat the file as public domain. This is partially out of formality, but it is always good to be clear :) --Feldmahler 17:20, 5 May 2007 (EDT)
P.S. Also, it may be a good idea to leave a note saying that you have permission in the "Misc. Notes" section of the file submission... this just clarifies matters :) --Feldmahler 17:24, 5 May 2007 (EDT)
Hi again! Also, since you are the typesetter of many of your submissions, it may be a good idea to add a line in the file itself saying that it is public domain (or whatever license you put it under). You don't have to worry about what you already submitted, but this may be a good idea for future submissions :) --Feldmahler 00:04, 6 May 2007 (EDT)
Yes, indeed I have all the permissions to publish his arrangements. I will add "public domain" in all further submissions I will get from him. He is a Pax Cultura follower (I dragged him into it years ago) and this shows in his willingness to share his arrangements and compositions with others without renumeration.
- Great! Thanks for the clarification :) --Feldmahler 18:29, 6 May 2007 (EDT)
- P.S. Pax Cultura is interesting (never heard about it before)... Wikipedia is unclear whether it is a cultural movement, a treaty, or both? :) --Feldmahler 18:34, 6 May 2007 (EDT)
