Re: Duplicate composer category?

I have just created a category for "Leon Chojecki 1858-1931" and I see that there is already a category for "Lech Chojecki 1858-1931". Which is the correct one? OCLC/WorldCat Identities has him listed as Leon but there is very little information about either version.

Re: Duplicate composer category?

Thank you!

I think I have just spotted another one - there are separate categories for "Helene Nyblom" and "Helena Nyblom".

Re: Duplicate composer category?

I just noticed another possible duplicate composer category - there are separate categories for Zachris Topelius and Zacharias Topelius. It seems to me that they are the same person. Could mods please merge?

Re: Oops - I've done it again..(spelling error in composer name)

error of the day:

Josef Herrmann Hillischer (1825-1897) should have just one "r"" in the middle name.

Oh well, at least I've managed to go 3 months between composer misspellings.

Re: Oops - I've done it again..(spelling error in composer name)

Thank you!

Today's error: Peter Aloys Schultheys should be "Schultheis."

Don't know how I managed to do that, with an article containing the correct spelling in front of me.

oh well...off to find more "red letters" and exterminate them...

Latest stuff-up:

Composer category "Richard James Beamish" - should be "Richard Joseph Beamish."

Thank you once again to mods.

When it comes to typos, I am the Queen!

I can spot them because I am an expert at making them.

Unfortunate spelling error in work title!

Just glancing through recently uploaded items - noticed that there is a song by Franz Abt entitled "He Gives His Beloved Sheep." As a church choir geek, I thought "hang on...is that really how the Biblical text goes?" According to Google and the King James Bible: " It is vai...

Re: Upcoming changes

I agree with the concerns expressed so far in this thread. I'm not as articulate as many others, and I don't know much about how the financial side of running IMSLP works, but I would love to know more, even if it's in the simple format of "$X needed to cover costs for this month - $Y already r...

Duplicate composer category?

Not sure where to put this, so I've made a new thread. I have just noticed that there are 2 separate composer categories/ pages: Frederic Weatherly and Frederic Edward Weatherly. These appear to have the same birth and death dates and thus I assume they are the same composer. Would it be possible to...

Re: Oops - I've done it again..(spelling error in composer name)

Latest typo...

I have just created a composer page for Albert Mayer-Reinach. Unfortunately I spelled it "Meyer-Reinach".

Thank you once again and I hope everyone has a merry Festive Season and a Happy New Year.

I haven't managed to stuff it up for a few months, but I'm back...

"Lionel Seymour Benson" is missing the 'e' in 'Seymour.' I realised as soon as I had clicked on the "submit" button. :oops:

Thank you once again.

Re: Oops - I've done it again..(spelling error in composer name)

OK - thanks for the info - I think I'll stick to the easier option and place requests in this forum. Today's request is...'Maria' Stanislavovna Pol should be 'Marina'. Feel free to do whatever you want to the patronymic (I've noticed these are not being used much now). I've spent a lot more time tha...
