In trying to talk someone through the process at ChoralWiki:CPDL_support,_help,_and_feedback#Add_Work_to_New_Page, I just noticed that while Add work redirects here, Form:Add work goes somewhere else, and I'm not sure how to fix it. Richard Mix (talk) 19:39, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

The original Add_work page included a form visible to anybody, including spammers who were able to submit fake contributions. To prevent this problem a specific namespace was created for forms, configured in such a way that only logged-in users could submit a form. This is the reason why the old Add_work page now redirects to Form:Add_work. For anonymous users (i.e., not logged-in) the form appears empty. Max a.k.a. Choralia (talk) 21:13, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

So where is the add work form now?

I'm logged in and keep getting these circles of dead forms and instructions pages with links to more instructions but no links to the add form. I can go to the old upload file form, but that's useless now with the automated populating of the composer page -- there's no place to to it the old way and type in a list the name of the work and then create a page.
