Thread Name: DTStudy: Making Babies By Steam
Subject: RE: DTStudy: Making Babies By Steam
This is a good example of how making DTStudy threads can become a complicated job, not to be undertaken lightly.
Including this one there are three threads (or more?) involved that have lyrics related to Daniel O'Connell. For a study thread, they all should appear together, with the pertinent comments.
In addition to links, the thread numbers should be given. Sometimes it is easier to put together data from a search for allied songs and information by using the thread numbers.
Words or phrases that may be typed into DT or DT and Forum Search should be given as well as links. For the song with the title here, -babies by steam- or -making babies by steam- both work.
Thread numbers for the other two involved in a major way here are 4145 with two versions of Daniel O'Connell, and thread 14602 with "Daniel O'Connell and His Steam Engine."
Although all versions should appear in the DTStudy thread, careful reference to the earlier threads should be maintained so that comments not considered pertinent (judgement call by whom?) can be found.
I believe that thread 4145 should have been the basis for this DTStudy thread. The title, "Daniel O'Connoll," is clear, the thread has priority, and all the songs are related. Unfortunately, the songs about O'Connell are not in the DT. "Daniel O'Connell" was posted by Wolfgang in 1998.
Just sign me "Kibitzer" and "Casper Milquetoast" as well because I doubt that I have the nerve to do what Phillipa is trying.
