About the "retard" part :p -> you can't expect people to do hours long discographic researchs to track down the origin of a tune on a low quality V.A. compilation. Most time they want what's printed on the sleeve, and that's fair (to some extent) - when they have a sleeve... Also, I prefer to have some bogus entry as track artist that will actually give me a hint about the formation name (hence the session details) rather than a raw and uncooked "Count Basie". There's also some unfinished business with VA comps in jazz, as some people tend to use formations names as track artist, and others release artist - the later being in itself quite problematic for some (old) stuff that have been issued multiple times under multiple different artist names. Actually, [[MusicBrainz]] is not (yet) the perfect discographer tool we are dreaming about: it's just the best we have at hand. -- dmppanda 09:27, 08 March 2007 (UTC)

Revision as of 12:25, 22 April 2007

Who am I?

I'm a Brainzer mainly known as dmppanda (though I sometime use random other nicks: Mangled, workingMoose, chocoMoose...). My emails are usually just signed Olivier.

During the ol' days, I was formerly known as The Creature of Dr teleSTEIN, and as The Crazy Annotations Master.

What am I doing in MB?

As an editor:

  • I'm working mostly in the jazz part of the database, though I sometime make intrusions into other territories, from hip-hop to classical, to anything sounding experimental, head-shakin' or body movin'
  • To some extent, I'm also involved in the effort to enhance the French data. The tracking page for that effort is the infamous FrogsTidyingMarathon.
  • I have around 1800 subscribed artists on which I usually review every change. Though I'm not the "biggest" subscriber here (I think at least mudcrow and drsaunde have more), I may be the bitchiest.
  • I have a soft-spot for intensive discographic research and release data documentation. From time to time, I'm also chasing bogus DiscIDs.
  • Along with Joan Whittaker, we made some massive harmonization on jazz titles, archived in Jazz/Compositions.
  • I'm an auto-editor since 2006/05, and have now contributed around 35.000 edits
  • Lately, I have been working mainly on the Fantasy/Concord vaults.

As a WikiZen:

  • I'am the author of various tomfooleries, from the Completist to the aforementioned FrogsTidyingMarathon...
  • ... and started learning to handle MoinMoin while setting-up the Jazz section...
  • ... wrote the Label documentation (most of which can be seen in a flat display by looking at the), and rewrote the "" docs
  • I now am a TransclusionEditor maintaining a number of WikiDocs, and a member of the AdminGroup
  • With murdos, my partner-in-crime WikiWarden, we recently "took over" the Wiki in the hope to make a difference enhancing its overall quality, and make some big strides in moving it forward. Some of the efforts related to this noble task are documented under the WikiWardening page
  • I also started maintaining bug tracking pages organized by topics (LabelFuture, AnnotationFuture, ...)

As a community chit-chatter:

  • I usually participate in the MailingLists discussions: mainly the style list, discussions about Labels and french stuff, and other random topics I feel inclined to participate in
  • Depending on the period of the year, I wander on the IRC channel, be it for moosing mo or trying to help newbies
  • Once in a while, I check the MusicBrainzForums, though I can't say I'm fond of forums

Random other stuff I introduced:

What does that means for you?

Be careful:

  • Edit my artists with extra-care, or face my wrath :-)

Contact me [1] if you need:

  • help on documenting, researching, or editing (jazz) material
  • help on fixing French spelling or capitalization [2]
  • help on some other topic... don't expect miracles, though :-)

... or if you:

[1] be aware that I sometime disappear from MusicBrainz due to the obligation to earn my living :-) . In such cases, I still answer private mails, though I'm less active.

[2] as long as you don't plan to call on ArtistIntent. Note that somebody calling on ArtistIntent does not actually need any kind of expertise - they can mess the titles all by themselves.

Editing suggestions

  • If you're a jazz geek, you may want to take a look at either the Jazz/Compositions or Jazz/Collections pages
  • If you have enough French in your bag and want to mess with it, try the FrogsTidyingMarathon
  • If you have a taste for tortuous and painful discographic researchs, help me fix one of these:
    • Django Reinhardt
    • Thelonious Monk
    • Eric Dolphy
    • Charlie Parker
    • Billie Holiday
    • Ella Fitzgerald
    • Duke Ellington
    • Erik Satie
    • Ornette Coleman
    • Charles Mingus

("Young") editors you should watch...

... as they are doing (very) good work:

  • AnAlach (Editor:AnAlach) open list: working mostly on french stuff. Has been under murdos merciless surveillance for some time (which means "accuracy", "research intensive", "behaving well"). Likely to be an autoeditor one day if he keeps up the good job.
  • Jugdish (Editor:Jugdish) open list: I'm impressed. Methodical, efficient. Keep it on!

("Old") mates

Other bookmarked editors

  • Editor:mbase1235 a.k.a. Steve Coleman, on the project to fix his own discography
  • tetedechou (Editor:tetedechou): an editor doing a lot of interesting adds to the jazz section
  • Yurim (Editor:Yurim) open list: doing some really good work

TODO

Things I should watch on a regular basis and I don't

Funniest typos

I like typos. Some of them I think were (very) funny:

  • L'idole des jaunes
  • Would You Lie to Take a Walk?
  • Take Lobe Easy
  • Gimme a Pigfoot and a Bottle of Bear

Extremely politically incorrect thoughts

Disclaimer: whoever you are, don't you ever mention me as a reference if you think the same. These thoughts are the shame of the community, counter-productive, dangerous, and I'll deny I ever thought them if somebody asks me.

That being said...

  • "Preserving (album version) into titles just sucks"
  • "Using sentence mode for french capitalization is the laziest and most stupid move done by the french editors in MB *ever*. Nice going guys."
  • "Go to hell composer style!" (Shepard in a great moment of inspiration)
