Subject: Wikimusic
Hello all.
I and some other users of Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikisource etc. are brainstorming of starting a "Wikimusic", as part of the Wikimedia Foundation. You have already a lot of experience, and I would like to invite you with the brainstorm. Wikimusic will be a Wikipedia-like project, with a communitybased structure, the content as free as possible (probably mostly Public Domain and the music of "free" componists), and probably but not nessesairely based on MediaWiki-software.
I hope you can tell us about the problems you encoutered, and if there is maybe some co"oporation possible. You're very welcome at the brainstorming page: . However this page is placed at the Dutch Wikipedia, it will be multilangual and the discussion is in English.
I hope to see you there soon. Greetings, nl.wikipedia-user Effeietsanders (for more info about me: )

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
