Adding a New Composer

I have added a new composer, Harry Drew (1851-1895), intending to add a work by him. However he does not appear in the list of composers, so there is apparently not a page for him to add a work to. I then thought I was mistaken in assuming I had added him, and tried to add him again, but this time I was told that the page existed. So it seems the page exists but is not shown. Because I can neither find his page or add a piece of music by him, I am completely stuck. Is there something I should know about what is happening? P0mbal 21:40, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

PDF files

I have a work which I have made into a PDF file, which the site says is the format to use for uploading to IMSLP. However when the uploading browser displays the files available it shows the names of the JPG files in the folder but ignores the PDF files, so I can't get hold of them. I cant see a way out of this if the browser wont see the PDFs. P0mbal 21:45, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

That's because you should not use the "upload file" link at the left sidebar to upload PDFs. Instead you need to add the file to a work page. If there is no work page, you will have to add one by using the "Add a piece to this page" link on the composer page. To add the PDF to the work page, use the "Add a score file to this page" link.

Minuet for Piano (Drew, Harry)

Hi P0mbal. It appears that although you went through almost all of the upload process successfully (you must have eventually figured it out - judging from your comments above you were experiencing a bit of trouble), but it wasn't completed for some reason and the file wasn't added to the page you were submitting it to (even though it was uploaded). The most likely cause of this is that the 'signature' form wasn't completed - this appears after pressing the 'Submit!' button after filling out the file information. Other than that, everything seems to be fine, but if that part is left off and you have a CC-licensed file (I notice the file you uploaded was indeed a typeset), then it will be orphaned. If everything is done right, a page should come up with 'Success'. Thanks, KGill talk email 02:23, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your advice KGill. However there may be a copyright issue, because I typeset a substandard copy provided by the British Library. So I shall not attempt to add before I have checked more. P0mbal 16:11, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Harry Drew and his Magnificat again

On 23/11/2012 I added composer Harry Drew (1851-1895), and then a jpg scan of a Magnificat by him. It appeared on IMSLP shortly after, but now all has disappeared without mention anywhere I can see. Will he reappear? Will he appear and disappear again if I have another try? No copyright issue with this one. Mysterious. If I was experienced at this I might have some idea what was going on. Can someone help? P0mbal 18:45, 25 November 2012 (EST)

It appears to still be on its work page found here=> Magnificat (Drew, Harry). --Cypressdome 18:53, 25 November 2012 (EST)
