Current Cleanup of the Month

Previous Collaborations/Cleanups of the Month

Discussions

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)
  1. Due to growing pains of the Musicbrainz Community and the complexity of Bob Marley's musicantry, and insufficient interest in CotM at large, Bob Marley's entry(ies) where not completed satisfactionary.
