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. -- [[Brian Schweitzer|BrianSchweitzer]] 05:51, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

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. --[[User:Mdhowe|Mdhowe]]
