  1. Hello everyone. As a matter of fact the Scorepedia as a project didn't get off the ground. Currently there is only one active user (Justin Boggan) and I have no longer the time to support and maintenance the project in any capacity. As of now I have set the wiki to read only with a description and link to this topic. If anyone wishes to continue the project, I'd be more than happy to transfer the database and associated files for further progress. Beside running the wiki alone it could be possible to transfer everything to Wikia. If you are interested please get in touch with me. Thanks. - Marcus
  2. Hello everyone. As the activity in this thread and in the wiki itself has stalled I'd like to take the opportunity to make it attractive again by changing the look and feel of the wiki. There are plenty of possible skins to chose from: Foreground (Demo)MediaWikiBootstrap (Demo)Metrolook (Demo)The skin should not only be visually appealing but also mobile friendly. Any thoughts?
  3. Wow, this is an tremendously detailed article. Thank you very much, Uni. Uni, would you mind adding some information about registration to the first posting? Anyone who wants to register can contact me through this site or via mail to contact@scorepedia.org.
  4. One word: Wow! Thank you very much for this in-depth article. I will update the startpage of the wiki to add information about contribution and maybe even add a small showcase for outstanding articles like Poltergeist.
  5. Yes, the project is still active and if you don't mind sending me a private message, I'll be happy to create an account for you. Nope, it didn't. I can assure you that the project is dead when the wiki got deleted.
  6. I have purged those accounts and also added email confirmation for each account. If you want to contribute you need to confirm your email. If this doesn't work I'll restrict registration for the time being.
  7. A project like Scorepedia can be much more specific as Wikipedia when it comes to such specialized topics like filmmusic. Obviously this is true for every specialized wiki. If I see what trouble the La-La Land Records entry on Wikipedia got I see the value in such a project like Scorepedia. The greatest problem we have is the will and time to participate. In the last months I was unable to devote any time to the project. But this is the vital point. Having enough time and will to support this idea. So the question is: Shall we proceed with the project? Or should Scorepedia ultimately die to have an answer to the question if such a project useful? I've taken care of these users.
  8. I have a suggestion for all articles in the Score category: The name of the article shouldn't contain the phrase Score and/or Soundtrack. Unlike the Wikipedia there won't be an article for the film itself as it would make no sense. It looks just strange to have it here or there.
  9. Just a note: The server is currently unavailable due to unknown reasons. The tech-team of the hosting company is aware of the problem and is dealing with the situation. Once the server is back up, I'll inform you. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. And we are back.
  10. I'm currently working on that. But your basic intend was right: Just copy the template from Wikipedia and you're set. However, in this occasion a bit more work obviously needs to be done. I've successfully integrated the template. You can see a use case here: http://en.scorepedia.org/wiki/Super_8#Soundtrack_Releases_and_Cue_Lists
  11. And, please, don't hesitate to just create a rough and unfinished page. Even with small basic information these pages can lay the foundation for further, more detailed work. It doesn't need to be perfect in the beginning.
  12. One one hand much stuff has already been done. I just imported a good dozen composer pages from Wikipedia to have a solid basis. And on the other hand I'm too busy to fully focus on the Scorepedia right now when it comes to the technical side of things. But I think we have a solid stand on which we can build up. Just browse to the page you want to create. If the page doesn't exist it will tell you how to add the page. You need to be registered and logged in to create pages.
  13. I couldn't replicate it either with latest Chrome on OSX. With my second try I was able to replicate the issue.
  14. There is already a report here: http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/bugs.html/_/ip-board/delete-first-row-in-quote-r40935
  15. Does this mean we're ableor allowedto import pages from Wikipedia? Will any edits we make be limited to the local page? (In other words, changing an imported page on Scorepedia won't do anything on Wikipedia, right?) This would save a considerable amount of time and effort. Rather than constructing entire encyclopedic pages from scratch, we could import information (particularly about composers) and add or change things to make it more appropriate to this site. It would provide a wider base as a foundation to build on. Yes, as Wikipedia and Scorepedia use the same Creative Commons License and this allows us to import anything from Wikipedia we wish to. Any edit we do is limited to Scorepedia only. If you (and everyone else) wishes to use this feature please approach me with a list of pages to be imported as this is something I need to do directly on the server. The process itself is really resource intense causing the browser to stop the import. I think the latter option would be best. It would be good to have all track information available for each release of any given score, but having to retype all that informationif it's there and useable alreadyseems like a waste of time. Well this is really a long term feature but it's definitely on the roadmap. I like that a lot. Wasn't there a thread here somewhere listing all cues from a session? Can't find it anywhere.
