I need help editing MusicBrainz
I'm a new editor. What do I need to know to get started?
You'll probably want to be familiar with MusicBrainz's mission and Code of Conduct first. There's a lot of information (some, alas, out of date) in the documentation. There's also an Editing_FAQ. If in doubt, ask. There are lots of editors willing to help.
English is not my native language. Can I get help in another language?
Currently, it is not possible to search for editors by language.
I'm looking for a relevant Style Guideline
The first thing to try is searching the Style_Guidelines.
You can also find proposed guidelines (and related discussions) in the bug tracker.
I have a question about a specific edit
If you have a question about somebody elses edit, the best place to ask is in an edit note.
I have a specific editing question or need a second opinion
What do I do if...
I think I found a bug
You can report bugs using the Bug_Tracker.
I think I found a problem in the documentation
You can report problems with the documentation using the Bug_Tracker. There are specific sections for style guidelines and documentation.
If it's a minor problem (e.g. a typo), you can edit the wiki directly.
I'm having a problem with a specific editor
As it says in MusicBrainz_Principles, "seek mediators".
If you'd like to discuss your problem as discreetly as possible (e.g. your problem is with a core MusicBrainz team member), you can contact our Community Manager directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
