Who are you?

A moderator known as dmppanda. You may find me on IRC or drop me a mail.

I'm supposed to operate mostly in the jazz sections of the database. Most of my usurpated glory comes from the fact most people thought my understanding and feeling of the genre was indeed encyclopedic knowledge of it :p

I was formerly known as The Creature of Dr teleSTEIN, and/or as The Crazy Annotations Master - a somewhat overrated title I owned by... annotating...

I'm a native french speaker, willing to help these who desperately need to fix french titles but can't (as long as they don't plan to call on Artist Intent with french boysbands).

What is on this page?

While I still understand nothing about all that wiki-moin-plus-moin stuff, just my personnal memos and todo list, plus my bookmarks.

Just my personnal memos and todo list

  • Urgent tasks
    • get rid of the VA mess on jazz:
      • seek and document a maximum of these compilations
      • seek, retrieve, complete and harmonize all these collections with horribly hard to dig titles, like The Jazz Masters (mostly done)
      • squeeze down every possibility to obtain data, including pinging original add-moderators
      • destroy / fix what doesn't exist / is improperly entered
  • Medium term todo (specific tasks only)
    • Blue Note 50th Anniversary
    • JAZZIZ collection
    • "De Morgen" collection
    • Mosaic Select collection (1/2)
    • Jazz Moods collection
    • Jazz Profile collection
    • Compact Jazz collection
    • Don Pullen
    • Django Reinhardt
    • Charles Mingus
    • Eric Dolphy
    • Thelonious Monk
    • Columbia Jazz Masters
  • Time-warped term goals
    • get enough MB code-juice in my brainz to begin contributing front-end patchs
    • help rewrite/complete the AMZ documentation, given AMZ made me suffer a lot and I feel the documentation is a mess and there is mostly no consensus at all and a huge lack of information on how AMZ handles data
    • help rewrite the welcome documentation, given I opened that can of worms, and said it was inadequate
    • re-open the can of worms: capitalization style for abreviated words like 'Round
    • open a huge can of worms: getting rid of bogus jazz artists, which involves getting people drop the inaccurate belief that the "release cover says all"
    • push hard in order to have track annotations, label/cat entries, label annotations (catnapping if necessary :p)
    • mercilessly control the input flow in the jazz genre
    • form the MB Jazz Strike Force with other jazz moderators, an informal group of moderators sharing/debating opinions (eg: on topics like track title variant chosen for harmonization), and coordinating tidying efforts, ensuring both that Jazz doesn't derive from MB style, and still doesn't loose its specificity - right now, the strike-force/thingie/stuff resumes to Yllona and myself communicating by throwing at each other rare jazz track titles, mood-driven and freely-word-associated, which is actually very fun
    • continue to help teleGUISE in his release documentation crusade, and try to put it to another level by using label catalogs for cross-consistency checks and labels completeness

Bookmarks: (Auto)-Moderators I sometimes understand enough to vote on their mods :p

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

Composition titles variants that were either the object of a consensus, or a flame war

  • Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me
  • 'Round Midnight
  • Bei mir bist Du schön
  • Ain't Misbehavin'
  • "C" Jam Blues
  • Take the "A" Train
  • Manoir de mes rêves
  • I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)

Ideas for reports / scripts / crazy development

  • Have a report of all (supposed) homebrew discid
  • release date: mom' lil' helper (ongoing)
  • A XUL interface to the web service and/or the web site

Spoken languages
