Availability for conf call?

Hi, Chuck--Can you let me know your availability for the conference call I e-mailed you about? Please let me know if you didn't get the e-mail. Thanks. --Vaarky 17:57, 14 January 2009 (UTC)


Chuck, the difference you see here comes from the fact that PAGESINCATEGORY includes subcategories in the sum, but they are not counted in the Main Page statistics. Carlos 19:05, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh, okay Carlos, thanks for the clarification. There must be one page not in the 0th namespace that has been categorized in Sheet music - because the (noncategory) page count if off by one.
By the way, the reason that the last line of your post is clobbering the first line of my post is in your signature declaration. You need to move the font size declaration inside the subscript (and probably reduce it to size 4 or 5 ... something like: Carlos ... This was obtained by typing [[User:Carlos|Carlos]] [[User talk:Carlos|<sub><font size="5">✉</font></sub>]], which doesn't lower the entire line so much that it clobbers the next line. -- Chucktalk Giffen 20:29, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Hi Chuck, thanks for your effort! This envelope character was a bit problematic indeed, taking too much vertical space either above or below the line, and people without the proper character set would probably not see it, so I decided to return to the good ole image envelope :) —Carlos Email.gif 02:19, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

merge templates

Hi Chuck, there was no need to delete the templates 'merge from/to' and edit the pages in which they were used. My intention was to leave these two as alternative aliases just as we have 'Lang' for 'Language'. —Carlos Email.gif 16:00, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Oops, sorry Carlos. Since the (now deleted) forms were only used in two instances apiece, I changed them, thinking that there was too small a difference between the old and new forms. The reason for using (actually abbreviating) "language" to "language" was one of expediency/speed in typing (especially, back when everything was pretty much done by hand) - the same for "acap" abbreviating "a cappella". If you want, we can restore the previous mere to/from redirects. -- Chucktalk Giffen 16:52, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
That's ok, Chuck. I particularly have nothing against the use of aliases for templates (as long as just one of the forms is documented as the "official" one), but now reading the talk page I remembered that Rob doesn't approve their use. It would be good if we reach a consensus on this matter before using them. —Carlos Email.gif 17:08, 27 January 2009 (UTC)


Hi Chuck, I'm not sure it's a good idea to have the arranger info in place of the Editor/Contributor as you did in Faith. As I see it, this field should have specific information about the producer of the electronic edition (Editor), and when this information is missing (say, when it's a scan), the name of the person who uploaded it to CPDL (Contributor). Even though in this case it's the same person who did the arrangement and the edition, it would be more clear if we kept these informations in different places, writting the arranger name below the composer's, as is usually done. What do you think? —Carlos Email.gif 18:16, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I agree. It's just that Douglas listed the work with "Editor/Arranger". I should have made it "Editor" instead of "Arranger". -- Chucktalk Giffen 20:23, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

template NewWork

Hi Chuck, would you mind waiting a few hours to continue with the removal of this template? I was running the DotNetWikiBot to catch the remaining cases in which the Editor hadn't been replaced by the template, but extension Replace Text is very resource consuming and makes the bot stop every time. Later we can program the bot to remove the NewWork template too, without you having to change the date each time by hand! —Carlos Email.gif 21:27, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Okay, Carlos. By the way, where is the DotNetWikiBot code you promised? ;) -- Chucktalk Giffen 21:29, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I will post it on the forum! When you see it you won't believe how simple it is to do things as remove the NewWork template! :) —Carlos Email.gif 21:39, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
I can hardly wait!! -- Chucktalk Giffen 21:50, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Catalogue template and associated categories

Hi Chuck. I just stumbled on Category:CPDL numbers [now deleted] (and the associated template [now deleted]) and wondered if you plan to go any further with this experiment? Tbh, I'm not sure what you were trying to do to start with but perhaps you could enlighten me! --Bobnotts talk 20:30, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

As you may I noticed, I have started to remove these templates since I have had no reply. I will continue when I return from my holiday if I have still received no reply. --Bobnotts talk 13:42, 12 April 2009 (UTC)


Hi Chuck, it was a good idea to put together all parts of the Markus-Passion into the main work page; you just missed to copy the texts/translations that Claude had just added to each of the deleted pages. If you open them and click on "View or restore x deleted edits?", the texts can be recovered from the last edit of each page (without having to undelete the pages). Regards, —Carlos Email.gif 00:08, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh, never mind, I just remembered it would be easier to copy the texts from and already did it. :) —Carlos Email.gif 00:41, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi Carlos. In the middle of the night, I recalled that Claude had added the texts to the individual pages and that I forgot to move them as well. Thanks for catching my mistake and fixing it!! -- Chucktalk Giffen 14:07, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

score edition notes

Hi Chuck, i've recently modified the disclaimer/copyright info on my editions. Should i include those on score edition notes ?.

this is the one i use now,

"Disclaimer: I do not know if this work is still copyrighted, use at your risk!!, Please do not use this file if you do not agree to the "Personal" copyright license or think this is an illegal edition !!. I collect sacred works of obscure composers and re-engrave in digital format for religious use. I can not be held responsible for any copyright related issues."

File missing

Hi Chuck, I recently posted a replacement pdf for Tristis est anima mea, but it doesn't appear on the score page for one reason or other. Any thoughts on this? Cordially, joachim 17:20, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Joachim. Replacement/revised edition PDFs do not change the original submission and posting dates, so there isn't any new listing on the New scores page. You will find the original still listed on February 2009 scores for February 9. I will add a note to the "Edition notes:" section about the uploading of a replacement PDF. -- Chucktalk Giffen 19:41, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
Chuck, if I understood Joachim correctly, his complaint was related to the pdf link appearing broken. When he replaced the original link with the link to the new version, he inadvertently removed the space between the link and the {{pdf}} template, rendering the link invalid. —Carlos Email.gif 00:04, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Ohhhhhhh. *grin* But I think you had fixed that already, and I didn't think of your explanation. Thanks!! -- Chucktalk Giffen 00:40, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
No problem! I too forgot to reply Joachim here after the fix. —Carlos Email.gif 01:17, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks guys. joachim 15:33, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
