History talk:Untitled Bootleg Style
From MusicBrainz Wiki
- What about countries where more than one name is common? I prefer "USA" over "United States of America" or "US" because it's a lot shorter and still well known (and is also easier to search for than "US") and "UK" over "United Kingdom" for similar reasons. What about "The Netherlands"/"Netherlands"/"Holland"? "The Netherlands" seems to be the most common but there are quite a few with just "Netherlands". --Nikki About the UK bit. The country UK includes a few countries its self. Should we then use UK (or United Kingdom) instead of England, N. Ireland, Scotland and Wales? --Sambalbij
- Well, the releases list just uses United Kingdom. It'd be nice to be able to have a per-track recording info & I'd guess we'd end up using the same country list. From personal prefence (as an English Brit) I always use UK. --ZeroGravitas As a Scottish Brit, I prefer UK too. --RodBegbie About "The Netherlands"/"Netherlands"/"Holland": Holland is definitely wrong. It's a province, not the name of the country. I always use "The Netherlands", as it's plural (meaning 'the low lands'), and I think it's most commonly used.
- I disagree. The place name should always be present. --Sambalbij I agree with Sambalbij. Not everyone knows that Köln is a city. --SenRepus
- But even if you don't, it's easy to guess, and even easier to verify e.g. with a web search. Or try searching for "KölnArena, Germany"... In any case, I agree with Shepard. --derGraph
