==Mailing Lists & Forums==
We have several [[Mailing List|mailing lists]] (also available at [[Nabble Forum|Nabble]] for those who prefer a web interface) and [http://forums.musicbrainz.org/ forums].  The  '''musicbrainz-users''' [http://lists.musicbrainz.org/mailman/listinfo/musicbrainz-users list] and the web-based [http://forums.musicbrainz.org/ forums] are for general discussion of Music<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>Brainz.  This is an excellent way to get help or ask questions about this site.  These are ideal for active discussions (and controversies!) with a wider audience.

==Copyright Issues==

The [http://wiki.musicbrainz.org MusicBrainz Wiki] has a mix of discussion and documentation ranging from the introductory to the esoteric. It is primarily used for intermediate and advanced documentation of the Music<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>Brainz community, conventions, interfaces, and internals. While there's a fair amount of this on the main pages, over time most of is moving to the Wiki, where it can be maintained and extended by the community as a whole.  The Wiki is especially well suited for documenting community issues and conventions like the style and editing guidelines, which change over time as a result of the community's interactions, and don't necessarily require development efforts.
The second use is for detailed and specific discussions.  General ideas or opinions are best discussed on a mailing list, but once it gets to the point where there are detailed proposals (and counter-proposals) it makes sense to move discussion to the Wiki, where others can comment in-line and link to related topics, as well as summarize and re-organize the discussion.  Additional discussion may still take place on a mailing list or [[IRC]] and if there is general acceptance of the suggestion, it may be a good idea to create a feature request on the bug tracker.
Music<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>Brainz developers and users are often to be found in the '''#musicbrainz''' channel on [[IRC]] chat at irc.freenode.net.  Please feel free to browse the [http://chatlogs.musicbrainz.org/ IRC log archives]. The [[IRC]] channel is a very informal forum for Q&A or brainstorming, with immediate interactive discussions.
The [http://blog.musicbrainz.org Brainz blog] has frequent updates from Music<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>Brainz developers on their progress in implementing new features and projects. While it has a comment feature for feedback, substantive discussion should be on the mailing lists or in the [[MusicBrainz Wiki|Wiki]]. Please feel free to link to our Blog from your own!
==Edit Notes  and Annotations==
If you are editing the Music<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>Brainz database, be sure to use [[Edit Note|EditNote]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s on your changes, and on changes that you are voting on - your notes will be emailed to all moderators who vote on that change (or add a note themselves).  This forum is very well suited for specific discussions about particular artists or releases.
You can also add [[Artist Annotation|ArtistAnnotation]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s and [[Release Annotation|ReleaseAnnotation]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s to the database to communicate with other moderators working on those parts of the database.
