How to handle it?
Dagmar asked about how I would treat new contributions to this
site. I never knew before, I even don't know what Ola did when
he encountered different versions from different people.
This is what I'll do:
- If someone proposes a change for a couple of lines in an
existing transcription, the existing chords will be replaced
by the new ones. I will not check if the corrections are
musically correct. I might do so by and then, but generally
I will not have the time to do so.
There will be no notice to the one who did the older version,
but if he or she goes to the page, finds it out, and does not
agree, he'll surely be sending me an email saying "you're
a bloody asshole, how could you do that, my chords are the best
and even better than Hammill's ones", and such. :-) The
varying versions will then be treated as alternate versions,
getting their own pages.
- If someone sends a complete song transcription, no matter
if that song is already being listed or not, it'll get an own
page, marked as "new" or "alternate version",
respectively. So, if you have *a lot of changes* to a song that
is already available, please do me the favour of sending a complete
- By default, all contributors are being credited by their
real name as shown in the email I get. I will not tell your email
address to the public except you allow me to do so. As well,
if you prefer to stay in the Quiet Zone, you may ask me not to
credit you at all.
(Hey Peter, isn't that quite a good chance to put strange and
varying versions of your own songs into the net? :-)
If you think I could do something better - which goes for this
very page as well -, do not hesistate to drop me a line: Bernhard Beutler, web$(a) na$lo go ($dot) com. Remove the space and $ signs. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm receiving 700+ spam mails a day.
How to contribute your work
You may send in any text file but you'd do me a big favour
by sending in files in HTML format, formatting the transcription
part as preformatted (HTML tags
while using headings and the usual HTML stuff where they apply.
This makes sure the pages look as you wish them to, and minimizes
If you send in any other text file, I'll do the file conversion
for you and, when it's done and uploaded, I'll ask you via email
to check if everything's alright. You know that with any conversion,
errors easily occur. Please make sure, thus, that your email/internet
accounts are still open a couple of days after you sent me something.
Conversion and uploading may tke a while by and then.
