An '''Artist annotation''' is user contributed text attached to a specific artist entry.
<small>{i} You may consult either the [[Annotation]] or [[Artist]] page for general informations about them. </small>
==Artist annotation content==
[[Image:Idea.png]] An artist annotation may hold any information about an artist that does not fit into the fields of the database. The following uses are suggested:
* '''Trivia'''
* '''Historical facts''': birthplaces / founding places, biographies
* '''Additional disambiguation''': [[Identically Named Artists|identically named artists]] are usually distinguished thanks to a short [[Artist Comment|artist comment]]. Sometimes, though, it may be useful to provide additional information, or special warnings.
* '''Miscellaneous editing warnings or informations''': clean-up status, TODO list...
* '''Genre information'''
* '''Notes about special handling of this artist''' and/or facts avoiding common mistakes: for example, links to releases that cannot be found easily or are known under different names
* '''Related works that cannot be linked using [[Advanced Relationships|AdvancedRelationships]]''', like works dedicated to this artist (not to be confused with tributes)
* This list is not exhaustive: you may use an artist annotation for pretty much anything you can think of - as long as it matches the purpose of [[Annotation]]s, and relates to the artist entry to which it's attached.
{X} You '''mustn't''' add copyrighted content copied from other resources, be they online or printed. More generally, you really shouldn't copy/paste any kind of content, unless it's purely factual.
==Artist annotation style==
At that time there is no official (neither recommended) style for artist annotations. We may later propose such a style guide if there is really a need for it.
