Some of the modules I have are actually duplicates
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:26:38 »

I have several modules on the Modarchive which are actually a copy of the same module.
Can you do something about it?
These:
69213-bees_bmix.it and bees_bmix.it are the same
69213-bees_gmix.it and bees_gmix.it are the same
69213-scz.it is a fixed version of scz.it
scz_gmix.it is a fixed version of 69213-scz_gmix.it
3elcasy.it and cobra3.it are the same
beesmix.it and bees_mix.it are the same

I wanted to inform you about that.

Also scz_past.it is a broken version of scz_troopers.it
Can you merge the healthy file to the corrupted scz_past.it and keep the smaller but better working file of scz_troopers.it as scz_past.it?

Thank you in advance!

Just to go sure, the file you mentioned first on each line should be the one that should be kept?

Yes. But I also prefer that you keep the mentioned files without the names has the numbers before them...
It is that it would have the file name bees_gmix.it kept and not 69231-bees_gmix.it as personally I made them a collection of a time travel themed sound tracks so if you could keep fixed versions but with the more simple short file names it would be better!

Thanks a lot!

As the files have to be renamed anyway, I would suggest to add your artist name to make sure the names are unique. Many artists come up with similar song names, that's why we recommend on the upload page that the artist adds their name to the file. It also makes sorting the files easier for the listener.
I merged all files and the ones with a numeric prefix have been renamed to include your artist name.

If this is good for you then it won't be that bad.
But another thing is that you just uploaded again files that are the same which are m00np00l.it and advertise-play_-_moonpool.it which the only difference is that one has a description in it's file name. Also the same with advertise-play_-_maayangroove.it and maayangroove.it and advertise-play_-_maayangroove2.it and maayangroove2.it which the shorter name files only lack the description. I am new to pixie tracker so it was my mistake. You might want to merge them both, better keep the shorter filename but you can do what is preferable for you.

I am sorry for so much of the inconvenience I caused.
