Talk:Cleanup Of The Month

From MusicBrainz Wiki

Note: other ideas, such as for projects and classical etcetera go here; I think it will be easier to continue with CotM if "artists we can conceivably do in a month or so" is on the official list, while "special cases" are here. Once we actually get a good CotM machine and routine going, and have done it enough times to be familiar with the odds and ends, we can think about maybe doing a Big Project --~ 猫猫~~何? 09:10, 20 February 2011 (UTC)


Other Nomination Ideas

Unlinked Discs -- reosarevok.
With NGS close, this should probably be continued. A lot of VA unlinked discs have almost no Release Event information, so that could be worked on at the same time.

"Month of the Special Purpose Artist" -- BrianSchweitzer 03:43, 02 September 2007 (UTC)
Non-Album Tracks
Sen suggested in IRC that we have a CotM specifically for NATs, to clean the accumulated ones that are junk, or have since been released on official releases. -- BrianSchweitzer 03:43, 02 September 2007 (UTC)
Add release dates (years) to everything! --kuno.
We'd probably need a centralised report to work on.
Review Sub_Optimal_Credits
Presumably some sub-optimal credits refer to relationships or instruments that have since been added to MB.

Discussion

Classical

Mozart: I'd be hesitant to suggest classical, but track titles are now all cleaned up, save for ~1650 tracks which are so badly identified ("Allegro", "The Magic Flute", etc.) that I can't correct them without knowing what the releases are. It's the second largest non-SPA in the database, and close to 75% of all releases have no performer info ARs or release events. A good half of them were added on expiration (0:0). Likely more than a few dupes still hiding in there, as well. -- BrianSchweitzer 05:51, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Time-frame

I'm starting to think that one month isn't long enough considering the amount of moderators helping out and the amount of time we can all spend on MB (or want to spend on the one artist). Maybe two months is better? We could probably keep the 'of the Month' extension though, if an artist is cleaned up sufficiently in one month we can move on. --Mdhowe

  • I wouldn't mind it being "open" for more than one month. -- FrederikSOlesen 05:56, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
