Re: Module by artist on TMA without link

I did some research on unlinked Maktone's modules.
Maktone's profile is: https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_profile&query=69469

A. These modules should be linked to Maktone's profile:
1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=44281
2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=52130
3) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166060
4) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166065
5) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166408
6) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166470
7) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166471
8.) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166476
9) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166478
10) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166507
11) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166508
12) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187178
13) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187525
14) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187640
15) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187641
16) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187642
17) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=188358

B. Next are pairs of duplicate modules. Both modules in each of the following pairs are unlinked. One module from each pair should be linked. I did a checksum comparison between the following modules and the modules from archives that were available on Maktone's official website. Today these archives are available by the Wayback Machine, see links [1] and [2] between this section (B) and section C:
1.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=35096MD5 correct
1.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166440MD5 wrong
Spotted difference: sample texts.

2.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=36346MD5 correct
2.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166481MD5 wrong

3.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=54801MD5 wrong
3.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166414MD5 correct
Spotted differences: title is missing in 54801; different notes in patterns 6 (row 6 on channel 2) and 2 (row 42 on channel 2).
Commentary: 54801 seems to be corrupted.

[1] https://web.archive.org/web/20120427213122fw_/http://sidchip.ath.cx/~maktone/777/maktone_all_mod.zip – all MOD modules
[2] https://web.archive.org/web/20120221220435fw_/http://sidchip.ath.cx/~maktone/777/maktone_all_xm.zip – all XM modules

C. Next are pairs of duplicate modules again. But the difference is that the second module in each pair is already linked to Maktone's profile. If in some pair the first module is preferred over the second, then it should be linked. I did the same checksum comparison routine that I did in section B:
1.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=51334MD5 wrong (not linked)
1.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=106828MD5 correct (linked)
Spotted difference: title (two spaces between words "on" and "top" in 51334).

2.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=53037MD5 correct (not linked)
2.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=109348MD5 wrong (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

3.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=55852MD5 correct (not linked)
3.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=108236MD5 wrong (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

4.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57519MD5 wrong (not linked)
4.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=111470MD5 correct (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

5.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57689MD5 wrong (not linked)
5.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=108985MD5 correct (linked)
Spotted difference: title is missing in 57689.

6.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57876MD5 correct (not linked)
6.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=144870MD5 wrong (linked)

7.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=60056MD5 correct (not linked)
7.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=112213MD5 wrong (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

8.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166061MD5 wrong (not linked)
8.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=54945MD5 correct (linked)
Spotted difference: sample texts.

9.1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166459MD5 correct (not linked)
9.2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=54798MD5 wrong (linked)
Spotted difference: different notes in patterns 2 (row 6 on channel 1), 0, 1, 6 (rows 6, 14, 22, 30, 38, 46, 54 on channel 1), 3 and 7 (rows 6, 14, 22, 30, 38, 46 on channel 1).
Commentary: 54798 seems to be corrupted.

D. These modules should be unlinked from Maktone's profile:
1) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=35343 (86260 bytes) – wrong version of castle.mod, correct is https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=110742 – duplicate of https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=35334 – real author is Matt Furniss (proof: https://www.exotica.org.uk/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special:Modland&title=Special%3AModland&md=qsearch&qs=castle.mod&pg=1). It is also incorrectly linked to the artist profile of Semtex (https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_profile&query=69642).
2) https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57269 (68076 bytes) – wrong version of simple.mod, correct is https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=187178 – real author is unknown (proof: https://www.exotica.org.uk/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special%3AModland&md=qsearch&qs=simple+blood).

Assignments have been done, the dupe merging will be done probably tomorrow.

https://modarchive.org/module.php?59890 should be unassigned since aberration's profile says that it's not their module.

I'd say that 54801 is most likely the original tune, but the notes that differ between the two versions of the song have arpeggios that exceed the Amiga frequency range, so someone edited them by transposing those notes down by an octave, bringing the arpeggios back into range. I will not merge those two versions for now as we cannot be sure if both versions are genuine or if the Amiga-compatible version is just a poor fixup by someone else.

Same about 9.1. These are not corruptions but deliberate edits. I will keep both for now.

Understood. Thank you very much for going through my massive list. And could you please then link https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=35096 and https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=166459 to Maktone's profile too, like you did with other modules from the list, so that everything would become (almost) perfect? Thanks in advance.
