Proofreading Features

Postby varnis » Thu Mar 17, 2016 1:27 pm

So I, and I suspect at least a few other contributors here, am a poor proofreader of my own work. I do my best, but frequently things are wrong/missing. As an example, I only found out about mistakes in my Vocal Score to Mahler 2 after someone used it for a score video on youtube and the helpful members of the youtube comment section pointed out all the mistakes :oops:

Is there any way to get a feature on a work page/file page where users can report mistakes/problems with typeset works? I guess the feature would also make the ubiquitous "Page N is missing from work X" threads in the Score Request forum.

I envisage logged in users being able to use this, which would either notify the uploader or send a PM or some other mechanism?

The 'gear' icon at the upper right corner if each file entry allows a logged in user to comment on a file. It's ideal for repoting errors of this nature and seriously under utilized.

But nobody pointed out this gear in the many "missing page" topics behind us!
