#REDIRECT [[How to Add a Release]]
 
 
==How to do it==
 
 
 
* The [http://www.musicbrainz.org/editalbum.html?album=55225 Edit name] link below the release's name on a [http://www.musicbrainz.org/album/0481dc5a-bab1-4e0f-8d89-9b755711b170.html release page] (or other pages where release details are displayed) takes you to a page where you can edit the release's title (EditReleaseNameEdit).
 
* The [http://www.musicbrainz.org/mod/edit-album/index.html?album=55225 Edit all] link below the release's name on a [http://www.musicbrainz.org/album/0481dc5a-bab1-4e0f-8d89-9b755711b170.html release page] (or other pages where release details are displayed) takes you to a page where you can edit the release's title (EditReleaseNameEdit) and/or attributes ([[Edit Release Attributes Edit|EditReleaseAttributesEdit]]), as well as the track titles ([[Edit Track Name Edit|EditTrackNameEdit]]) and number ([[Edit Track Number Edit|EditTrackNumberEdit]]) of any or all tracks on the release.
 
 
 
==Guidelines==
 
 
 
===Editing===
 
 
 
* Check for duplicate releases:
 
<ul><li style="list-style-type:none">Before changing a release's title, consider the possibility that there are duplicate entries for the release.  A quick release name search may turn up a number of variants.  You may wish to merge the releases instead.
 
</ul>
 
* Use attributes and release events:
 
<ul><li style="list-style-type:none">When removing extraneous information (e.g. "Original Soundtrack", "CDS", "UK version", etc.) from a release title you should enter corresponding [[Edit Release Attributes Edit|EditReleaseAttributesEdit]] or [[Edit Release Events Edit|EditReleaseEventsEdit]] and maybe even [[Add Release Annotation Edit|AddReleaseAnnotationEdit]] to make sure that the release attributes and/or release events reflect this information, so that it is not lost.
 
</ul>
 
 
 
===Voting===
 
 
 
* Classical releases follow the [[Classical Style Guide|ClassicalStyleGuide]]; these guidelines put performer information in the release title.
 
* Links to discographies and or the [[MusicBrainz]] links to Amazon info or cover art can be useful for verifying the exact release title.
 
 
 
==Notes==
 
 
 
If the only change to the title was case and/or accents. the change will be instantly applied (no voting required; this is an [[Auto-Moderation|AutoModeration]]).
 
 
 
===Prerequisites===
 
 
 
An EditReleaseNameEdit will fail due to a [[Failed Prerequisite|FailedPrerequisite]] if another EditReleaseNameEdit changes the name.
 
 
 
===Dependencies===
 
 
 
An EditReleaseNameEdit will fail due to a [[Failed Dependency|FailedDependency]] if the release is deleted by a [[Remove Release Edit|RemoveReleaseEdit]] or a [[Remove Releases Edit|RemoveReleasesEdit]] or merged into another release by a [[Merge Releases Edit|MergeReleasesEdit]].
