|Hi, and welcome to [[MusicBrainz]]! This page is intended to give you a few starting points to edit MusicBrainz, whether you're an [[Artist|artist]] or a user of the BBC Music site. Please read it (and any other guides relevant to what you want to do) before starting to edit. If after reading you're still stuck, then [[Contact Us|contact us]] so we can help you and hopefully make the guides more useful for other users.

Data in MusicBrainz can be edited by anyone, so artists and fans can fix and extend the information. Note that unlike Wikipedia, changes to the data don't usually apply automatically, but have to be [[Introduction to Voting|voted on]].</span>

{| class="wikitable cellspacing="0" style="text-align: center;" "
 
|style="background:#F3CFAA;"|<span style="color:#000000; font-size:15px">The BBC uses the MusicBrainz database as the backbone of their artist pages (eg. [http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/5700dcd4-c139-4f31-aa3e-6382b9af9032 the artist page for Kraftwerk]). An artist must exist in the MusicBrainz database in order to have a BBC artist page, and this page will be systematically linked to from across bbc.co.uk wherever editorially relevant (eg. from tracklists, playlists, charts, event pages etc). Related BBC content is aggregated on each artist page, including videos, audio clips, album reviews and play count information.

Don't try to turn an existing, different artist into your own entry, just add a new artist for you and work with that. If the BBC have attributed radio plays to the wrong artist, [http://www.bbc.co.uk/feedback/?ref=/music/ contact them] once you have created the right one and let them know of the problem.
 
 
Once the artist page has been created on MusicBrainz it may take several hours to show up on the BBC Music website and in search results.</span>
