Raf Ornes created the first version of the Add Work form, and the name of the various fields has been the same since then. perhaps browsers are just getting 'better' at guessing (we are getting identic...

Unable to submit new editions, to upload files, etc.: registration process to be completed

This is a recurring subject that is worth to highlight here on the forums. Some years ago CPDL was literally overwhelmed by spammers, who created hundreds of fake registrations and published thousands of fake pages. CPDL administrators were forced to activate an additional user validation system tha...

Re: Gmail address misunderstood

Hi David, your email address is accepted. You can check it yourself: simulate a new submission without entering one or more mandatory fields (for example, without entering any files, or the editor name, etc.), and enter your email address where required. When you click the submission button the syst...

Re: CPDL new registration with old user name

Thank you for willing to contribute!

Recovering the old username is definitely feasible. I'll privately contact you as we may have to exchange confidential information.

Where/when did you get a "Line 143" error message?

Re: Deleting old works

Hi Elam, I've withdrawn the three editions that you specified. It goes without saying that we would be happy to replace the withdrawn editions with new ones that you may wish to submit.

Re: Deleting old works

Many users may have downloaded your editions over the years, and we have to ensure that they can continue using them according to the copyright terms that were applicable at that time. As a consequence, editions are never actually deleted: they are archived, and we have to document the fact that suc...

This function makes use of the DynamicPageList3 extension of the MediaWiki software, and apparently there is a bug with the ignorecase option, i.e., an option that one has to select in order to perform case-insensitive searches on titles or other attrib...

Re: Request pages

Honestly speaking, I'm not sure that this "score request" feature should be maintained, or, at least, that it should be maintained as it is now. The introduction of these forums, as well as the availability of alternatives (e.g., IMSLP), may suggest to adopt a different approach. I would p...
