Welcome and note about new editions
Hello there, John, and welcome to CPDL. Many thanks for your recent contributions, including:
- Russian (John Murphy)
- A Nova Scotian Hymn (John Murphy)
- Behold a simple tender Babe (Joseph Edmund Mills)
- Let all that is within me (Joseph Edmund Mills)
- Shepherds in the fields abiding (Joseph Edmund Mills)
- When the Lord entered the Holy City (Joseph Edmund Mills)
There were a number of problems with the pages which I have just spent some time correcting, namely entering new catalogue numbers and adding various templates which categorize the pages appropriately. The easiest way for you to submit your works in the future is to follow the score submission guide which will format the pages as close to perfect as we can do automatically at the moment. Please use this easy-to-follow guide in the future to save time. If you have any questions, please consult the help pages initially, then feel free to leave a message on my talk page if you can't find an answer to your question. Thanks --Bobnotts talk 22:30, 24 March 2008 (PDT)
- And Hello from me, too, John. I reinserted "User:" in the Editor field of your Mass of the Incarnation, which you had removed. The [[User:John Murphy|John Murphy]] identifies and classifies you as the Editor/Contributer of the score and provides a link to your User page: User:John Murphy - this is the norm here at CPDL. You are free to edit your User page as you wish, although I have set up a "bare-bones" version for you. Most contributors/editors who are also composers/arrangers (including myself) provide links between their User pages and their composer pages (I have put a link to John Murphy at the top of your User page). There is an added difference, too: your User page is essentially "yours" to do with what you wish, while your composer/arranger page needs to conform to they overall style of other composer/arranger pages. I know all this must seem daunting at first, but we all had to learn the ropes, and the Admins here, especially Rob and I are here to help you. Finally, thank you for contributing your scores and your editions of Joseph Mills scores to CPDL. -- Chucktalk Giffen♫ 00:04, 25 March 2008 (PDT)
Hi John. I've just removed the text of a hymn that you added to St. Denio (R. Mills). Thanks for the contribution and I'm sure it was done with the best of intentions but this text is copyright unless it has been released to the public domain (or under some other free license by the author). As such, it cannot be contributed to CPDL without the express permission of the copyright holder. Please see this help page for information about copyright. May I draw your attention to the notice which appears below the edit box and above the "save page" button whenever you come to edit a page:

As I say, I'm sure you added the text with the best intentions but we can't host it on CPDL without express permission from the copyright holder. If you have any questions about this, feel free to leave a message on my talk page. Regards --Bobnotts talk 09:59, 6 April 2008 (PDT)
