Archived Proposal Information

In 2007, Kuno (warp) attempted to find and track all old proposals. He eventually gave up the effort, but that proposal tracking info is stored below for reference.

This page is an attempt to list all 'current' or 'active' proposals on the StyleMailingList. Often, proposals do reach some sort of consensus, but are never followed up on, the goal of this page is to keep track of those proposals so they are not forgotten, and can be revisited at the appropriate time.

Formal RFCs on the StyleMailingList are tracked here, no other proposals should be added.

NOTE: the current name and location kuno/CurrentStyleProposals should change at some point, i would like some suggestions on what this page should be called (just leave comments here or tell me on irc :).

Disclaimer: this is not an automated list, but I will try to keep it up to date. If you think some information is out of date or incorrect, notify me (warp on irc, or kuno@frob.nl) and I will look into it (or, change it yourself, this is a wiki :).

RFC: ReleaseTitle

Most of ReleaseTitle on the wiki seems to be in use already, the RFC attempts to formalize it I believe.

RFV: OGLA is no more, suggesting the AR be deactivated, if not removed

Missed the RFC :/. Apparently the site doesn't exist anymore, so the AR should be removed.

RFC: Always show "No Vote" and make it the default

No response to this post so far.

RFC: Don't allow/disable additions of ARs and release data Pseudo-Releases

No support. Main objections seem to be:

1) people cannot currently 'use' ARs unless they are attached to the release/track itself. 2) ARs are duplicated in many more areas of MB where releases and tracks cannot be grouped or otherwise related to eachother with the current schema, this shouldn't be treated as a special case.

--kuno.

RFC: ClassicalReleaseLanguage

  • Out of the people who voiced their opinion on this proposal, Alex Dupuy doesn't see the need for it and Olivier is not in favour. I assume this proposal has been abandoned due to lack of support.

RFC: Classical works for multiple instruments

  • Only three people participated in the discussion, with no clear support for the proposal. I expect the author has abandoned the proposal, but please correct me if I am wrong --kuno.

RFC: Change Default Data Quality

  • No consensus was reached on the actual proposal in its original form. However, a lot of valuable suggestions were made by various people, the proposal should probably be rewritten to take those suggestions into account and resubmitted as an RFC. (IMO, DonRedman has an insightful post on the proposal. --kuno).

RFC: Adding {instrument} and {vocals} to 'Recorded By' AR

  • Discussion died, no clear consensus reached as far as i can see. No summary of the discussion.

RFC: "changed name to" AR

  • In general, people seemed to be in favour of this proposal -- but concerned that the AR will be abused to split up artists which wouldn't be split up without the AR. The discussion died out, wasn't summarized or otherwise followed up later.

RFC: Reissue Produced By" and "Compilation Produced By

  • No discussion took place. No further action was taken.

RFC: performance dates and locations

  • Discussion has died on the MailingList and died or slowed down on the wiki pages. I don't see a clear consensus yet on the implementation details.

RFC: instrument-related AR changes

  • No discussion took place. No further action was taken.

RFC: Conductor AR Changes

  • Discussion died. There seem to be no objections to the proposal, however the discussion was not summarized nor do I see an RFV for the proposal.

RFC: IMDb AR change

  • No discussion took place. UPDATE: Yay, artysmokes is the first to reply, only 4 months after the initial post :)

RFC: Bad Terminology: bootleg

RFC: New Release Status: "Upcoming"

x (disc 1) & x (disc 2), vs x & x (bonus disc)

  • The proposed changes to BonusDisc were first discussed and written in may 2006, amended in september 2006, and a call for further discussion in may 2007 (with no responses). Some issues raised in the september discussion and on the wiki page haven't been addressed by the proposal. RFV has been posted now.

Live Track Style

  • The first mention of LiveTrackStyle on the mailinglist is a post by Zout, which is a sort of half RFV. Though at the time it seems there was consensus, work on it for some reason died out. A lot of discussion has also been added to the page itself. I think the guideline is already being used, atleast for NATs, by many editors.

Live Bootleg Style

ArtistRoleInheritance

  • An old issue (2005) still mentioned on ProposedStyleGuideline. I have no idea what the status is, although from a quick reading I would think current practice more or less matches with the interpretation outlined on the page.

Soundtrack Style

  • The wiki page itself predates the move to moinmoin, so this is a very old proposal. It was discussed in February 2006 and May 2006, apparantly without any resolution, and discussed again briefly in August 2007.

Audio Book Style

  • A page edit on 2005-10-23 claims WolfSong and Keschte will write the AudioBookStyle, and indeed the first few drafts have been made in the following days. Most recently, some discussion took place in June 2007, but it seems no member of the StyleCouncil actively listens to audio books themselves, as a result, no one is actively trying to get this implemented. This issue really needs a proper IdeaChampion.

Date of Birth

  • Apparantly unresolved issue about birth dates being allowed on performance names or only on legal/birth names (found on UnresolvedStyleIssues).

Vetoed or otherwise abandoned, canceled or retired proposals go here. These should be moved to a separate page when the list becomes too big.

  • Vetoed because we do not have a clear definition of what rap is.

Theatricalia

Hi, I'm new here. I added a "has biography at" relationship, to Michael Crawford, linking to http://theatricalia.com/person/zdf/michael-crawford

Theatricalia has lots of biographies for theatrical performers, including many who appear in musicals, and have recording careers. I think it would make sense to add a specific relationship type, as there is for IMDb etc. However, the process described here is opaque to me. Would anyone care to run with this?

I have also proposed that Theatricalia add a property for linking to MusicBrainz. Pigsonthewing 22:24, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Update: Theatricalia now has a MusicBrainz link; see, for example, the above link for Michael Crawford. Pigsonthewing 11:02, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
