I don't recall ever seeing this page before but it looks really useful! Should we link it from the Main Page/volunteers page? Or does it need more work? --Bobnotts talk 09:22, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Hum, I thought I had commented about this page somewhere but I'm really not sure... :) I know the current layout isn't great but I can't see a way to improve it right now. Will try to present the data in tabular format later, but I don't know if it's possible for this specific DPL query. So yes, it might be ok to link to it from the volunteers page. —Carlos Email.gif 15:48, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Very useful indeed. Thanks. Discussions are talk pages? Why not a list of works' talk pages, or a mix of both composers and works? - Claude 21:12, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes Claude, talk pages or discussion pages are the same thing :) As for your suggestions, we already have it, check the lists again! You'll see there's a list for composer talk pages and another for works. The information shown is date, page title and last editor. —Carlos Email.gif 15:31, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Maybe a better way of presenting the info would be to amalgamate some or all of the current titles? Or isn't that possible? Also a limit of a year would be good (is anyone really going to read down a list of pages for a comment that's more than a year old?) I'm afraid I don't know how this could be achieved but whenever you've got some free time, Carlos, it'd be great to see this page developed. Thanks for your work. --Bobnotts talk 10:12, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Rob, I don't get what you mean with 'amalgamate the titles', can you explain please? As for limiting the list by date, I'm checking this possibility, but even if possible, I'd like to keep the complete version too, because the oldest talks are exacly those that many times go unnoticed. —Carlos Email.gif 15:31, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Done! Now the lists are limited to one year. —Carlos Email.gif 08:13, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I like Carlos's invention so much that I created an analogue for non-Main namespaces at ChoralWiki:Recent non-Main discussions. – Chucktalk Giffen 02:03, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Good idea, Chuck! I also liked the name you chose for the new template, and since both were so similar, I've merged them under your title. This way we can guarantee that all three pages will present the same layout when the template is modified. —Carlos Email.gif 08:13, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
