Talk:Tracks With Multiple Artists

From MusicBrainz Wiki


I would like to add these 2 (now added) but I have no idea what this new format is and how I am supposed to use this? How did this get changed with no notes on the mailing list, and what happened to the list, there used to be a lot more here. I think data was lost in this "conversion". (I have added more to this list than is even currently showing) -- drsaunde

  • I don't know what happened during the conversion, MartinRudat did take care of this page. I think he has tried to keep all references, but some may have been pointing to unexistant releases. That could happend if the release has been merged with another one. And this is exactly why we have converted these sort of page: using MBID which is a permanent and unique identifier is better than using row ids.
    Now, how do you do to add new releases in this page? Actually this is really simple: just get the MBID of you release: you could find it in going to the details page of the release. Then add your link using the same syntax as other ones, which is an interwiki link: [wiki:Release:<THE_MBID_OF_YOUR_RELEASE> <THE_TITLE_OF_YOUR_RELEASE>]. That's all ;) -- murdos 19:35, 09 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Murdos, I will add the 2 I listed. Hopefully your comment will be left for a while, so everyone can get up to speed. -- drsaunde

Maybe more simple to manage than static list are Tracks by Various Artists and Tracks by slash separated artists tags. -- jesus2099 10:09, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
