Hi Maggie, welcome to CPDL! Thank you for posting your composition. Here at CPDL we use the composer's complete name when possible; is Maggie OK for you, or do you prefer Margaret Furtak? Kind regards, —Carlos (talk) 04:27, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Carlos. Thanks for your help! Yes, Maggie is fine. Margaret is my grandmother. (: Best, Maggie FurtakPateceramics (talk) 14:40, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Formatting text

Hi Maggie, text formatting is really simple, just have a look at what I have changed here (left column is before, right column is after). You may want to try it yourself next time, we admins will be here to help you if something goes wrong. Best, —Carlos (talk) 22:30, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Carlos. Well, I bet I can handle that! Thanks! Since there were exhaustive instructions for posting scores yourself and then only sort of lukewarm instructions for text formatting, I wondered if there might be more to it than there seemed. I'm happy to save you guys the time to tend to more important matters; I just didn't want to end up creating extra work for you fixing my goofs. Much obliged and I'll see if I can try the next one myself. Just wait... I"m currently procrastinating on a "Dixit Dominus." It will be my first really large scale project, so I'm fidgeting around with it, but I'll finish eventually! Pateceramics (talk) 23:33, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

No problem, take your time :) —Carlos (talk) 00:56, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Okay Carlos. I just posted a new piece and, hopefully, correctly formatted the text. "I Laid Me Down." Let me know if there is anything that I've missed. Thanks for your help.Pateceramics (talk) 02:13, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Maggie, it was almost correct: the extra pair of <poem> and </poem> was not really necessary. You can see more examples on this page (compare the two examples inside white boxes at the bottom). Regards, —Carlos (talk) 03:00, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Ah ha! I wondered about that. It was mentioned in the instructions for text formatting on some page or other. Maybe the page the opens from the "text needs to be formatted" message that pops up when you post a composition that you haven't added text for... Thanks! Glad I was only redundant and not missing anything important.Pateceramics (talk) 13:13, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

External links

Hi Maggie, the "External links" section in your composer page is meant for composer-related biographical sites only. For links related with specific works there is a similar section inside each works page. If you don't mind, I'll remove the duplicate Youtube links from there, ok? Best, —Carlos (talk) 11:29, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Ah! Of course that's fine. Sorry to make extra work for you; I didn't realize. I think I do have the youtube links on each works page already. Thanks for catching that, Carlos! Pateceramics (talk) 11:35, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

No problem. Thanks for your understanding! —Carlos (talk) 12:46, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
