Questions

If you know the answer to these, please remove the question and integrate the answer into the article.

Is it possible to search for releases with unset attributes (type, status, language, script)? -- salo.rock, 16 December 2009

No, I don't believe it is. If you're looking for things to edit there are plenty of interesting reports available. I'd recommend the UnlinkedDiscsWithSameBarcode report; it has the benefit of being really easy do to, and in doing it you'll be contributing to the NGS migration effort. --navap 17:28, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Is it possible to search for releases with high or low data quality? I've noticed many people misunderstand it and lower/raise quality illegitimately. I've now saved the query and won't let pass such edits, but I'd like to fix up what has been already entered. --salo.rock 12:30, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

The operator NOT appears to work in advanced searches. (e.g. track name NOT type:compilation will exclude comps from the result.) Should that be added to the examples? Torc 07:37, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Acoustid

Hi,

you can search for recording's puids. Shouldn't you be able to search for acoustids too? http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/Indexed_Search_Syntax#Search_Fields_

  • Most likely not, AcoustIDs are not stored in the MusicBrainz DB --Mineo (talk) 06:57, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
