  • Hi,

    When you add another vendor link to an existing list, it goes to the bottom of the list, even if you have one farther up the list already.

    Best regards,

    • I have to apologize.  I didn't notice I had this message from you until just now so I have gone another 2 months possibly not doing that right.  I just read this so I'll make sure I enter things properly going forward!  Again, I'm sorry not to have seen this sooner!

    • Hi,

      No worries, as long as we are on the same page now. 

      I think I corrected the ones I found - probably not too many.

      Best regards,

      tarna

  • Hi,

    Some notes on your recent edits.

    When editing an existing listing, please make sure not to remove the pattern number from the description.  It belongs there (and I add it to every one of your new entries).

    When a copyright is actually indicated on the pattern envelope or instruction sheet (i.e. confirmed), we indicate this by using the copyright sign © in front of the year, not ca. - the latter is for estimates and educated guesses.

    I know  - it is a lot to take in, and you are adding at a mind-boggling pace...

    Best regards,

    tarna

    • Okay.  I will go back to one of the patterns I've entered and you've corrected and get the exact format from it so that I get it right.  Thank you!

  • Hi,

    Finally caught up to you for tonight... not holding my breath, though ;) 

    Please note that we distinguish between McCall (to 1951) and McCall's (1951 and after) patterns.  Please make sure to enter the new page title the way they are spelled on the envelope for further new entries.

    Best regards,

    tarna

    • Oh my!  I bet you feel like braining me!  OO  Okay, I will make sure and differentiate and I apologize for the work I caused you.

    • No worries, it was just a few of those, and I thought I'd let you know before you entered a number of them.

    • Am I getting the size of the images right now?

        Loading editor
    • The image sizes are better now.  i (we) make adjustments based on original envelope size, which vary.

      The majority of the format edits are more behind the scenes (template artifacts, cut-and-paste artifacts in source mode, spacing).  I also add categories to each new entry.

      You are doing fine, just trying to keep up with the sheer volume.  I did this very thing with my patterns years ago...

  • Hi,

    Just a note - I had to delete the Burda patterns you uploaded.  They were from 1993, and right now the wiki accepts patterns no later than 1991 (25 years old or older).

      Loading editor
    • Yeah, I apologize for that.  I stopped uploading them when all of a sudden the light went on and I realized...wait, these look real new!  Sorry for the inconvenience!

        Loading editor
    • I understand.  It wasn't until recently that I figured out how to date them.

      Now I am going through the ones already uploaded to check...
