Chanson de Mai, Op.40

Hello Ys,
first of all thanks for your contribution. Please do not upload single pages, make one complete pdf-file with all pages instead. I've done it already for the Op.40. Regards, Hobbypianist 19:41, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Scan settings

Dear Ys, if it's not terribly to much trouble, could you make all your scans and contributions in 1-bit colorspace (black-and-white, monochrome, lineart)? Thanks. Daphnis 20:10, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Ys, again about the scan settings. Your recent upload of the Pierné piece was in 256 colors and was over 50MB. After I converted it to 1-bit it was only about 2MB. As I originally asked, if you could scan things in 1-bit it would save a bunch of space on our server. Thanks for the submission. Daphnis 14:11, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
Again, please scan in 1-bit. Doing otherwise for no specific purpose unnecessarily inflates file size. Daphnis 00:10, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

File sizes

Hi Ys. Please find some way to compress your scans - such as scanning in monochrome, as Daphnis repeatedly suggested above. Your files are incredibly enormous, and they should not be - almost 20MB for a mere 12 pages! With proper compression, you should be able to get that under 1MB without much trouble. This will save space on the server, and make it much easier for anyone to use your scans. People with slower internet connections will effectively be unable to access your contributions at all. Please scan in monochrome and compress in the future. Thanks, KGill talk email 21:07, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! :-) KGill talk email 16:34, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Hello again, and may I once again ask if you could please make your submissions in black and white (1-bit) it would save a ton of unnecessary space. Thanks. Daphnis 21:24, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Harp Music

Great work with this. Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 15:11, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Page Titles

Great work! Two minor complaints:

  1. Page titles should be in the following format: Title, Op.##. Please follow this format, including capitalizations.
  2. The french "Editeur" means "Publisher" in English (total faux ami). Keep this in mind.

Oh, and type {{Flat}} in to get a . Thanks again-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 16:54, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


If you are transferring/uploading anything from , it may be a good idea to put {{SibleyProject}} in the miscellaneous notes section of the upload form just on general principle etc. :) It will automatically convert to "This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project." when you upload. (Note: I don't know if this is required, but it may be good etiquette!) Eric 21:29, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


Hi Ys. Most unfortunately, this work was first published posthumously in 1967, and therefore will be under copyright in Canada until 2018. Therefore, I had to delete your fine submission. Sorry, KGill talk email 13:37, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Boieldieu Harp Concerto

Hi Ys. Unfortunately, on reflection I think it would be best to delete this file - it was edited by Carlo Stueber (1893-fl.1960s) and may be under copyright in most of the world. The extent of his additions is unclear, but it is pretty certain that it isn't an urtext edition (he may have added dynamics, expressive markings, and suggested harp tunings, among other things), and I think it would be safest to delete it. Thanks, KGill talk email 14:29, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Harp pieces from

Hi Ys -- I notice that the harp pieces you have been uploading from are all color scans. It would probably be more appropriate to download the black and white versions instead, or in addition, because they are much more practical for printing and actual use. Additionally, all of these works I believe are from a collection at Brigham Young University and this institution and special collection should probably be given credit. Also, if you have time to add more information when you upload it would save us admins alot of extra work, ie. entering full publisher information under "Publisher" not "Editor", including date and plate number(s). The format is as follows - Publication city: Publishing firm, date. Plate ####. Thanks for the submissions! Massenetique talk email 02:24, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
