This edit adds a [[Label Alias|LabelAlias]] to an existing Label [[Image:bicon.png]]
===How to do it===
* The [http://musicbrainz.org/edit/labelalias/add.html?id=1509 Add New Alias] link below the list of existing aliases on a [http://musicbrainz.org/show/label/aliases.html?labelid=1509 label aliases page] takes you to a page where you can add a new [[Label Alias|LabelAlias]] (AddLabelAliasEdit).
* Aliases are useful to enhance search results; there are a number of legit reasons to create a new alias: misspellings, variants, numbers... Be sure to read [[Label Alias|LabelAlias]] for a complete list.
* Thanks to the Lucene search engine that [[MusicBrainz]] uses, there is no longer a need for aliases containing unaccented characters
* Use [[Label Alias|LabelAlias]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>es sparingly. Adding too many (bogus) aliases will actually degrade the search quality and encourage misattribution.
* The [[Label Alias|LabelAlias]] page covers most legitimate uses.
At that time, [[Label Alias|LabelAlias]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>es have to be unique ([[Ticket:780|780]]), like [[Artist Alias|ArtistAlias]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>es.
* An AddLabelAliasEdit will fail due to a [[Failed Prerequisite|FailedPrerequisite]] if that alias already exists (be it attached to the same label or to another one).
* An AddLabelAliasEdit will fail due to a [[Failed Prerequisite|FailedPrerequisite]] if the label is deleted by a [[Remove Label Edit|RemoveLabelEdit]].
* None
===Internal Errors===
* None since [[Edit:6658114|6658114]]
===Symbolic name and id===
* Is MOD_ADD_LABELALIAS actually correct and what is the edit ID?
* Isn't the second [[Failed Prerequisite|FailedPrerequisite]] a [[Failed Dependency|FailedDependency]]?
* Is [[Ticket:1162|1162]] applicable here?
