ScoreInfo template

Hi Carlos, I achieved a long cycle of replacement of score infos by the template and completing the info. When the three information were present (paper size, number of pages and size in kbytes), I left the old string with three non-breakable spaces at the end. So you can run your scripts. Another point: some work pages haven't any copyright template. I've them listed here. May I replace some 'GnuGPDL' (yes, with what I think is a superfluous D) copyright info by a 'GnuGPL' (without the D) copyright template? Wish you all well. Claude 13:34, 11 January 2011 (CST)

Hi Claude, your persistent work was once again quite impressive, congratulations for completing the task. I'll run through your NoCopy list to see what can be done with these cases. With regard to the GnuGPDL, it seems to be indeed a typo. If you found many such cases, I suggest you use the tool Special:ReplaceText to change them all in a single pass. All the best and a happy new year! —Carlos Email.gif 17:23, 12 January 2011 (CST)

What's next?

I've seen that very few pages use 'Edition' (edition notes) template. So as 'CPDLno' template. At the contrary, very few don't use 'Editor' templates, so as for 'Copy' template (many of these pages aren't work's pages but collection of works. What to do then (manually)? Do you think possible by one of your wonderful scripts to change the CPDL number info by the template? Is it useful? More generally, am I right when I think that the more we get pages unically composed by templates, the best to go to a database system, with search at the edition level, instead of a site made of pages for editors, composers, works, etc. with a search at the page level? Regards, Claude 09:47, 26 January 2011 (CST)

Hi Claude, the Edition template as it is now does not seem useful, and could well be replaced by the equivalent text (the simplest way to do it is by adding "subst" to the template and saving the page: {{subst:Edition}}). CPDLno is a test being performed by Chuck, but I don't think there's consensus yet as to apply it to other works pages. The Editor template should be used in all editions because currently many statistics and listings depend on it. With respect to your general question, I'd say that you're correct, a well planned template system would simplify listings and searches, but that would not necessarily mean that the other pages (editors, composers etc.) could be eliminated. The wiki environment is basically organized around text pages; we can only emulate a database system on top of it. I'm not sure if this is what you were asking; if not, please write back!

Audio files

Hi Carlos,

I have mp3s and aiff audio to go along with the files I want to submit, but they are larger than the 5MB limit on size.

Do you know a way to convert these to smaller sizes without breaking them up? Or is there a way to have my size limit raised?

Thanks, Eric E. 14:47, 21 June 2011

Hi Carlos,

I've made a workpage as per cleanup tag, but does Heilig have a CPDL No. yet, or does the form need to be run? Regards, Richard Mix 00:52, 13 August 2011 (CDT)

Hi Richard, thanks for helping with this issue! Since you created a page for the larger work, I believe we should now merge Selig sind die Toten with it. The other editor, Victor van der Laan, just uploaded the files for the Heilig movement but didn't seem to have gone through the Add work form for his edition. We could get one of the unused numbers... What's your opinion about the merge? —Carlos Email.gif 19:02, 14 August 2011 (CDT)
Quite in favor of merge! Will you tackle the Add work form? Richard Mix 04:41, 15 August 2011 (CDT)
Yes, leave that for me! —Carlos Email.gif 16:48, 15 August 2011 (CDT)

Scalabrinian Mass and easter song

Thanks Daniele Colla 21 September 2011

Hi Daniele, sorry for all this delay; I was able to complete the submission of the Mass, which is now available. The Easter song will be posted in a few more days, ok? All the best, —Carlos Email.gif 00:07, 3 October 2011 (CDT)

scalabrinian mass

Hi Carlos what happened my Sclabrinian Mass has disappeared from the list of october editions'

thanks Daniel colla

Hi Daniel, after its time on the Main Page was over, the mass was automatically listed in the page ChoralWiki:July 2011 scores, because your edition was submitted to CPDL in July, although it was only posted in October :) Regards, —Carlos Email.gif 22:50, 15 October 2011 (CDT)
