Re: Deleting old works

Alternatively, If you only want to update the files you can simply replace them: go to File:Adieu mamour I - agricola.pdf (well, now deleted, but for future reference the page starting "File:" … and continuing as the filename linked from the work page as "Media:" …) and look for ...

Re: Request pages

I have a similar perception: the forum is someplace I visit maybe once a month (unless I get an email about a specific thread like this one) and there's no watchlist to show me what's new so I dip into a few random threads with newish dates. I'd imagine anyone wanting to make a request would start f...

Re: Request page - See what has already been requested

I inadvertently started a new thread at: http://forums.cpdl.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11806 Better to continue here, probably. If we're going to encourage people to add contact information (or use the forum instead) I can easily add a note to ChoralWiki:Request a Score; I'm much to shy abou...

Re: Request pages

For 1) template:request makes no provision, so one improvises: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Request:Pleurs_d%27Or_(Gabriel_Faure)&diff=1200630&oldid=1199304 For 2) the status parameter of the first line can be edited by hand: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Request:C%27e...

Request pages

I'd hate to see http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Requested become a graveyard and while reducing it below 2 pages have started pondering <strike>a couple of</strike> various questions: 1) Should requests for works hosted externaly be kept in "Requested"? Some might be nice to ha...

Re: DefaultSort & German articles

Yes, for the last: "Eighteen chorales", "Eilmar, Georg Christian", "Ein feste Burg"… It occurred to me there might be a fundamental difference between first lines and titles, but Die Zeitalter des Barock has a " Register Der Gedichtanfänge und -überschriften "...

Re: DefaultSort & German articles

Difficult to automate indeed: Des Abend s (in the evening) but Frühlings Ruf, Des (the call of Spring). I would think that argues for keeping things under "D", but I'd still like to understand WP:de's rationale. I still can't find a print index that ignores articles; an English datapoint i...

Re: DefaultSort & German articles

I found the WP:de guidelines too, though not yet any related discussions (there are a few pages not in compliance, like [[Des Antonius von Padua Fischpredigt]] and [[La danza (Rossini)]]). What I would like to learn is whether there has been a general shift recently: my understanding is shaped by th...

DefaultSort & German articles

I'm not sure if this has been discussed elsewhere: [[Der Blumenbrief (Franz Schubert)]] sorts as " Blumenbrief, Der", before [[Das Abendroth, D 627 (Franz Schubert)]]. "Abendroth, Das" would make sense to an English-speaker, but those of us who have experience with German indices...

Re: Schubert & CheckMissing

Schubert's page is a hand maintained list (with a lot of links that have become redirects: e.g. ''An die Laute'' points to ''An die Laute, D 905''), and newer pages haven't been added yet. If you look at http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php?title=Franz_Schubert&curid=2620&diff=1194612&oldi...

Re: Dating of subsequent editions.

I see what you mean: changing the date causes No. 18 https://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Ecce_panis_angelorum_(Giovanni_Croce)#General_Information to disappear from MultiPubList. The template page is probably on Barry's watchlist: https://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Template_talk:MultiPubList#Dating...

Re: Schubert & CheckMissing

Today the behavior of the 2 versions in the history is different, but I'll keep the null edit trick in mind. I'm reminded of an amusing item I once came across in the physics library called the Journal of Unreproducible Results. :roll:
