Re: Can't upload score - "Error: This page is protected???

It seems that the page has been protected by Carolus to stop anyone other than administrators from editing it. Maybe it's because the page is getting to an unmanageably large size. Carolus should be able to tell you.

Re: What is IMSLP's definition of a collection?

In Hinner's case the situation is confusing because there are other items without opus number, such as "9 Romances and 3 Harp Sonatas" and "6 Harp Sonatas" which may or may not constitute collections, and also a rogue "Harp Sonata in E-flat major" which could belong to ...

Re: What is IMSLP's definition of a collection?

A "Collection" on IMSLP consists of two or more "Works" in a single published edition. The collection pages were introduced because it isn't always possible to split a printed edition into its constituent parts, or there is some value in keeping an important edition intact. So th...

Re: Composers own arrangement of an opera excerpt

This would normally go on the opera's workpage, unless, for example, the composer had set a different text to the music to make it a completely different work

Re: Marguérite douleureuse au rouet (no. 2),Op.26 (Zabel, Albert) ‎

Different titles, different opus numbers, so no need for the confusing "(No. 2)" in the page title, even if it appears in the score. I've moved it to ""Marguérite douleureuse au rouet, Op.26 (Zabel, Albert)"

Re: Three work page issues related to categorization

There's a line called "|Page Type=" which can be used to make these kinds of changes, and hopefully all are fixed now.

Re: Title page for reprint of Tchaikovsky's "Vakula the Smith"

Thanks Lyle, this would be a very welcome addition to IMSLP. In answer to your question, I'm not sure but it might be safest just to omit Kalmus's cover and title page, and include the publication details in the description of the file, noting that this is a Kalmus reprint. The Cyrillic title could ...

Re: Failed to correct instrumentation

If you're unsure about the tagging system it's better just to mention the problem on the work's talk page, because you caused a system error with your changes. I've fixed it for you now.

Re: Language issue for 4 Romances, Op.41 (Rimsky-Korsakov)

Hi Zeyar. I'm not the admin who edited your page, but the correct procedure was followed in this case. That's because the original texts and first publication of these songs (1897) was in Russian only, and it's IMSLP's policy to translate all Russian titles into English. We do this because most of o...

Re: Policy query, and complaint

Hello Philip. I'm no longer leading the tagging team (and had no involvement with editing the pages you mentioned), but there are a couple of things to consider here. Firstly, there are an awful lot of work pages where the uploaders of works, or subsequent editors, have not given the original instru...
