Sad Flower in the Sand
1000+? Crazy. Good crazy.
They shouldn't be. But that other site, the one with the manuscripts, that list doesn't automatically update when the database is updated. So a lot of those could be corrected in the database, but not reflected on that list.btw, isn't it a little confusing that the manuscripts collected under a different title also have a 'red dot'?
I have dreams of such a system, yes. But if you think about the relationships between the work itself and the multitude of other things that can be attached to that work (books, magazines, manuscripts, broadsides, forum links, etc.), and the other works it can be directly related to (alternate titles, versions, etc.)...you can see that multiple points of reference are needed.I see. I thought that you would just update information to a certain poem in one place, and then it would automatically apply to all the data about that poem.
Hi (Victor) Hug,[...] How does it work? [...] If anyone owns such a ms they can get it added by sending a scan?
Well, I was "only" 500 or so manuscripts behind until @Dora dropped over 2,000 new images on me. So I think you can throw the schedule (which is a nice euphemism for absolutely no schedule) out the window.mjp is a bit behind the schedule concerning including into the database.
I can't stop thanking God for you (and some other people here) not being in your right mind.adding manuscripts... It's tedious and miserable work, so no one in their right mind would do it for free.
Maybe. But it's probably a discussion for elsewhere.Is there a way to put them in a secure site with strict rules so we could help and not fuck it up??
What's in that?just discovered that it seems, our database is missing 'THE EARTH ROSE' (1966) aka 'FUCK HATE'.
Probably a typo for 1984, but it's undated.and another thing - THIS can't be the correct date for the manuscript since it appeared in the book in 1990:
Done. Changed the manuscript dates from displaying the full MySQL format (e.g. 1986-08-13) to just the year.There's something else I want to do...
