Kind of like asking a charity store for a discount because I have donated stuff to them in the past. (No, this is not a sneaky or passive-aggressive attempt to ask for a contributor membership. I am still deciding whether to go down that path or whether just to pay for a subscription.)
My situation is quite the same. I made quite a number of contributions, but most of them are from my own musical production as a composer and a performer of my own improvisations. IMSLP was my simple way to come into contact with possible users of my humble music production. Now I wonder if I would be counted as a possible candidate for a contributor's membership. I - exactly as other users - had never previously to consider any questions like that. I had already decided to contribute to IMSLP economically as soon as I will get an employment as a church musician, but still so far I am not there. Now I would like to know if my contributions so far are sufficient for a contributor's membership. Right now I have no new works to contribute, I will have to produce some new compositions during the next time.
