Re: PDF previews on composition page

Yes, the previews look great, you could even say fantastic. After looking at the source code, I am rather disillusioned and fear a maintenance problem. What should a usual CPDL-updloader do if a error is found and therefore a new version has to be uploaded? I would not know how to update the preview...

Re: .mxl Files

I accidentally tried to upload an uncompressed MusicXML file (.xml), and got an error message saying that this format is not accepted. Now I wonder what other MusicXML files there are in the CPDL that require to distinguish them from the .mxl files by decorating the Edition Notes of the latter with ...

Upload Limit

One of the goals of CPDL is to grow. You can see this by looking at the progress bar for new scores on the main page (3000 goal). But that should not lead to a contest, who can upload the fastest. In my opinion, quality also takes time. Therefore, I would like to present the following heretical sugg...

Re: Add works, old - automatic

Since I did not even participate now for a whole year, I can not say why such a field was ignored. - Was it not explained in the documentation why you should use it and what effect does it have? - Should you include a hint in the form itself of the kind: 'If this is part of a larger work, please fil...

Re: Add works, old - automatic

ok with the check box, the result would be very similar to the old process. What do you think about 2 additional fields?: - check box 'this is part of a larger work' - field 'title of the larger work' If checked, the result should look as the sequence Title: Work: Composer: as in - for example - htt...

Add works, old - automatic

Max (choralia) asked why I'm still working with the "old" add score process. First: Matter of habit; I originally followed the help information for 'How can I contribute?', German: 'Anleitung zur Einsendung von Partituren', which still lead directly to the form "Add works". Perha...

.mxl Files

For some of my Edition Notes the template 'mxl' was added by the administrator. Now the text looks quite overloaded. Should the type of the file not be apparent from the second parameter in the 'Media:' term? In the past, many Finale and Sibelius versions were supported. Why not create a new entry t...

MuseScore files

Yesterday I uploaded the "Musikalische Exequien" of Heinrich Schütz. Unfortunately there was no entry for the music notation software MuseScore, so I had to use "Other, Unknown" (I used the form "Add works"). Since version 2 MuseScore is a very good music notation softw...
