Hello Peggy. Congratulations on your first tag! Just a reminder that all tags are case sensitive, and should all be in lower case (no capitals at all). Keep up the good work! — P.davydov 16:36, 19 March 2012 (EDT)
When a work is subtitled something like "full anthem for..." and if IMSLP:Tagging doesn't say something to the contrary, then the tag should probably include this as a tag if the tag exists and is more specific than the tag in use, for example (sorry - will try to be more explanatory later.) (IMSLP:Tagging is helpful here because - for example... - well - if a piano solo work has a title or subtitle that mentions "song" then the tag should probably say songs, but not similarly for melodies, because in IMSLP:Tagging songs are ok for instrumental works but melodies are only for vocal ones. Don't know why, but that seems to be consensus :). So made in one work Sacred choruses a little more specific with "Anthems" since the work in question was indeed an anthem. Cheers and thanks (as usual and of course sincerely!) Eric 01:02, 23 March 2012 (EDT)
to both Eric and Davydov for your help here. Am chewing it over and studying the tags.
Only after volunteering for the tagging team did I find out that y'all are professional librarians, to which my first response was, Yikes! My intent in volunteering was to help out since I know you are backlogged. But now that I'm learning the complexities of tagging I'm wondering if the time it takes to answer my questions and correct my mistakes will be greater than if I hadn't done anything! We'll see, I guess. For the present I will concentrate on pieces with simpler instrumentation, that should help.
If nothing else the exercise is giving me a great respect for the tag team :).
Hi anyone who reads this,
I don't understand how to use user talk, even less now that I've read a little about user pages (I think that's where user talk happens?) on wikipedia.
E.g., Eric wrote something on my user talk page. Do I respond on my page or his, and how do I find his? Many thanks! -Peggy
Hi cypressdome, thanks very much. Very helpful info! But when I click on the pen icon I get a squiggle: --Rhymesandchymes 17:28, 24 March 2012 (EDT). I'll see if that magically changes into my signature and a time stamp when I save the page--nothing happened with a preview.
Oh goodie, it did. Thanks again. --Rhymesandchymes 17:29, 24 March 2012 (EDT)
