Re: Damaged pages, the second

I have finished going through the list Claude sent (thanks, Claude!). I found some more pages by searching; in total I examined 85 pages, 29 work pages and 56 publication pages. I made major corrections to 42 of the 85. I think I found most of the errors; if you find more, please contact me.

Re: Damaged pages, the second

I'm afraid I was the one responsible for most of the changes to the Descr template in March. Between March 14 and March 22, I replaced '''Description:''' with {{Descr}} in about 40,000 pages. It was relatively easy at first, since the template is empty most of the time. After a while, it got complic...

Re: wrong voicing

There is another forum topic about Multi-Category Search. Currently MCS doesn't work correctly for some uses, which is tied to recent revisions of MediaWiki. I will work on this when I get time.

Re: wrong voicing

I just ran Multi-Category Search, with only SSSATB and limit=1000 set – 21 results. Category:SSSATB has the same 21 works; every one of them has an SSSATB edition. Not sure why yours isn't working: Maybe you had another item checked, like 6-part choral music? (To expand the tree in MCS, one needs to...

Re: Vertical alignment columns of text

Templates {{Top}} and {{Middle}} have been changed. I also changed {{Translation}} because the flag was within the <big> tags, making its column taller.

Vertical alignment columns of text

There have been several comments on talk pages and in emails about vertical misalignment of columns of text, when using templates Text or Translation. You can see examples on any page that uses these templates in multiple columns, using the templates Top, Middle, and Bottom. (The templates Mdl and B...

Re: A new category "odes to music"?

I think a new category would be appropriate, perhaps generalized to Category:Music about music – not all such are Odes. And you are right, Richard, this would not be a genre or subgenre; this is a cross-genre concept. See for example Music, when soft voices die (Charles Hubert Hastings Parry) . I cr...

Re: Source/author and copyright fields for translations?

Whilst there are both author (composer) and copyright (per edition) tags for musical settings, it seems to me that the same is missing for translations. I agree that there is not a satisfactory way to properly attribute translations as to author and place and date of publication. The same is true o...

Re: Elephant in the room

Thanks to several editors for their hard work! There are several "substantial" arrangements already on the page Hark! the herald angels sing (Felix Mendelssohn) , so I would like to merge Hark! The herald angels sing (Joseph Knapicius) with it. It is debatable, whether a substantial arrang...
