Thanks.

As the end of 2011 is approaching, I couldn't help but notice how much IMSLP has grown and flourished over the last years. I remember when I first joined IMSLP in 2006, the rate of uploads was something like 100 new uploads a month. And we were very very happy if we could keep it up. Now, it is some...

Re: Main Page graphic re-design

The only thing I'd like to see is a better search engine - how much more would I rather be able to search for a composer's name, a composition's instrumentation, a recording's performers, or for arrangements for two pianos bearing the keywords in question. I remember the old IMSLP search was appalli...

Re: Main Page graphic re-design

I like the new design - the only thing that bothers me slightly is that the blue gradient fades into nothing, and then the mental box that all the content is supposed to be in in that space of the page bleeds into the background white which makes it slightly unstable in terms of design for my taste....

Re: Bulk Downloading Option?

I don't think it is an overall bad idea - aside from the problems of copyright and ripping by other websites. It would be particularly handy if it would be possible (with a php script, perhaps?) to select which scores you want to download, and you could also bulk-select according to copyright (e.g. ...

Re: Padrucci: The iPad app for IMSLP

Hey, Thanks for your reply - it is nice to hear that you will keep working on the project, I am sure it will keep getting better and better! You are right about padrucci on phones, although it could be useful to be able to have a playlist/library of scores, so when you're going to a concert you can ...

Re: Padrucci: The iPad app for IMSLP

That's fantastic - I applaud you for your efforts (and any beta testers and guinea pigs too!) and the final result, it looks very impressive and I am sure will be appreciated by many :) Two things I am concerned about: is Padrucci released under an open license, such as Creative Commons or a GP/copy...

Re: Plan to make IMSLP available as a whole download!

I think the problem with torrents would be a) that IMSLP receives something like 1000 new files every two weeks or so (how would you keep it up to date?), and b) that - if I have access to the internet (which I would need in order to access the torrent), why would I ever choose to download a file ov...

download statistics (feature request)

I really enjoy the download statistics for files, but I was wondering how flexible is manipulation of such data. For example, would it be possible to see a number of total downloads for a composer's output? Or the number of total reecord downloads or total score downloads for a particular composer? ...

Re: copyright in derivative works

Hm.. Interesting. Thing is - with my piece, it would be absolutely and utterly impossible for anyone to recognise that passage. Unless I told anyone that this is where some of the material comes from, then no one would ever be able to tell. If I did tell someone, they'd still have a pretty hard time...

copyright in derivative works

This is not so much an IMSLP related question, although it could be. Assuming I take a piece by a contemporary composer such as Boulez or Ferneyhough, and I select 2 bars from an orchestral score, and I take those 2 bars and stretch them and re-orchestrate them to last 20 minutes. I then go on to co...

Re: american flag for US-only copyrighted files

The first impression I got was that the piece in question was either a national US piece, or has some strong ties to the US. Which it doesn't, other than the fact that only US users can download it. I would have thought that all these warnings would suffice in terms of any legal actions against IMSL...

american flag for US-only copyrighted files

I strongly oppose this practice, as it appears on this page (and I assume similarly-tagged pages): http://imslp.org/wiki/The_Firebird_%28Stravinsky,_Igor%29 I understand that IMSLP wants (and must) protect itself from any future copyright infringements, and that it is (obviously) not responsible who...

Most Popular Composers page?

I was wondering, to make it easier for the general public to access widely wanted scores by popular composers, is it possible to create a page with like, the 10 or 100 most popular composers? (which, I imagine, would include Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Chopin etc etc) The upside of this would be that p...

Re: Main Page

@BKhon: fantastic - this is the place to share them! :) @KGill: I agree with Feldmahler that we shouldn't remove the copyright notice just to be on the safe side. As the text is quite short, we could just put it in a little box under the recent recordings additions list, or something. Not sure I und...

Re: Main Page

I completely agree with what you said :) I was actually quite impressed with the trimming of the Contributing section on the main page. Although it feels a bit frustrating that there is a whole section on the main page dedicated to one line of text! I really like the idea of using design to convey i...
