Score gets deleted

Postby jeswagner » Thu Oct 05, 2017 4:30 pm

Twice I've attempted to submit http://imslp.org/index.php?title=Reform ... _Friedrich)&action=edit&redlink=1
however it gets deleted by "hobbypianist". Why?
I would expect the courtesy of an explanation rather than just a deletion, however I have received none so far. Anything wrong with the way I've submitted the score?

Because the page was empty for 2 days (and the first time for nearly 1,5 weeks).... Empty work pages or categories get deleted in a short time, that's part of the regular clean-up.

So, if you want to upload something create the work page and please add the file soon afterwards.
Or vice versa: if the score is not yet scanned or typset then please finish it, then create page and upload.

There's an explanation, I always add the reason: (empty page).

I appologise. I did not see the ”(Empty page)” as an explanation – I thought it was something autogenerated. I did not think the page as empty as it did contain a link to where the score can be obtained.
I generally think it is a bad idea to store and potentially have to maintain the same version more than one place. But if this is required by IMSLP, so be it.
This particular work can be found via CPDL.org anyway.
