Beginners Guide > Beginners_Guide/How_To_Add_Information
This is a basic annotated screenshot guide on how to add your first artist, how to add some releases to that artist, and how to add links between artists, urls, releases, etc.
This is written from the perspective of the editor being the artist. "I am the artist" notes obviously wouldn't work if, well, you're not the artist.
Please note that this guide is just a quick how to. It isn't intended as a substitute for also reading through the various style guidelines to better learn and understand how the site works.
First, before any of this, sign up as an editor. Then you'll be ready to use this guide.
