Actually it's pretty hard to offend me ;) And no you didn't even come close lol. But anyway, even though I said not to use grayscale in the official submission pages, you can use grayscale if you think it is more legible at the same size... Basically I think there are two options: 1. scan in B&W...

Well... the problem (and why there are missing info) is mainly because at this point in time, what IMSLP needs is not thorough research about a piece, but just lots of scores. Someone else asked me via e-mail about nearly the same thing a few months back, and it still hasn't changed. The truth is, n...

Apparently for some reason "FIN" files were allowed instead of MUS files... but that's corrected now :)

While what you said about MUS files being much smaller (and much more legible too) is very true, there are several reasons why IMSLP has mainly scans: 1. Scans are MUCH less work than retypesetting; that's part of the reason why IMSLP can have as big a collection as it has now. Imagine retypesetting...

Parts are very tricky... that's part of why you see lots of scores but very few parts. Mainly because there is no such thing as Dover parts :/

Of course, if you created the parts yourself out of the score that'd be public domain if you so wished it to be, but that's a LOT of work...

You can just ignore the warning... as long as it uploads that's fine.

Thanks Peter! I might remove the bad file at a later date (perhaps along with cleaning up the Bach category, which is a mess right now). This is mainly because the IMSLP catalogue is designed to prevent file deletion (because it is rarely needed, and also to prevent irreversible vandalism). Removing...

Hmm... that does involve some amount of work depending on what OS you use. I personally use Linux so it's not all that hard to extract images from PDF, flip them, and then remake the PDF file. But for Windows I don't know of a way short of commercial programs. I suppose you can try to print the upsi...

That is indeed true :) Which makes them very suitable for scanning and putting on IMSLP. Not to mention they seem to have almost every public domain score ever published hehe.

Someone asked me the exact same question over e-mail, and the answer is that indeed it *would* be a pain. However, even though I know it would be hard for people to get their hands on scores over 70 years old in copyright, nonetheless there is one publisher that makes this possible: Dover Publicatio...

lol... the insult was me insulting myself :) Anyway, for whatever reason there is, I cannot access the "alan.melvin.com" site (I get a 404). I know about Mutopia; free-scores.com I do not know, but it seems like just a list of other sheet music sites. The difference between IMSLP and Mutop...

Why are there no Bach scores? You suck.

It does not mean I hate Bach... in fact Bach is one of my favorite composers. The reason there are no Bach scores is because of the lack of staff basically. I do indeed have all of Bach's works (scanned), and they are the 1855-1899 critical edition no less. However, I'm busy doing other composers ri...
