Just uploaded a track but need to add a comment to it
« on: March 05, 2021, 04:16:04 »

I uploaded a modified, shorter and much better version of the Chord-command by Ukulele. After the upload was successful, I see the following message:
"ukulele_-_chord-command_test_short.mod has been successfully added to the queue. However, it is likely that the file already exists in the archive as chord_command_test.mod (with slightly modified file contents). In the future, please check in advance if a module is in the database before submitting."

I did check first and made a comment on the original Chord-command explaining why the shorter version is better.

In general, before uploading a fixed version, please let us know beforehand on the forum because otherwise chances are high that duplicates will be rejected outright.

Letting us know on the on the module comments themselves is not the preferred way of communication because they will be easily looked over, plus it has the disadvantage that the old comments will be carried over to the new module when they are merged.

Alright, I'll try to let you know beforehand if I ever upload anything else. I was only a minute later on the forum telling you.

I had hopes since my upload succeeded that you would take a listen and then compare it to the similar but not duplicate you already had in the archive. Then you might also have discovered the comment I made about why the upload was better than the one you already had. It is almost impressive that it got rejected faster then you replied to my forum post and had the chance to review it.

Is it worth trying to upload it again?

Right now it's still in the upload queue, as there were a couple of other duplicate uploads I need to have a closer look at first.

The two files have now been merged. I also deleted your comment as it was no longer applicable to the new file.
