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 There's a lot of information (some, alas, out of date) in the documentation.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 else's 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 email@example.com.
