** Japanese artists have a tendency to choose capitalization and punctuation for aesthetic reasons; and to be very consistent regarding case over all releases. For this reason, words in the Latin script on a Japanese release should be in the same case as on the album art if other available sources, such as official discography or record label pages, are consistent; not normalized according to English or other capitalization standards.

Comments (for Copy 'n' Paste)

  • moved featured artists from title to artist field (see [Style/Titles/Featured_artists])
  • typographically-correct punctuation (see [Style/Miscellaneous])
  • You may want to correct the capitalization (see [Style/Language/English]). The "Guess case" button is your friend. (Well, almost. You have to check afterwards.)
  • Use a colon (:) to separate multi‐line parts of a release title (if no other dividing punctuation mark is present). See [Style/Titles/Subtitles].
  • [Style/Titles/Volume_numbers] explains how to enter volume numbers. The "Guess case" button is your friend.
  • The disambiguation comments are fields in the database used to help distinguish identically named artists, labels and other entities. See [Disambiguation_Comment].
  • Please enter as much information as possible. Can you provide a barcode, a label, a catalog number, a scan of the cover, anything that helps other editors to approve your edit?
  • The release can be found at amazon, so you can provide a link.
  • Please enter extra title information as described in [Style/Titles/Extra_title_information].
  • Please follow [Style/Titles/Featured_artists] for featured artists.
  • If you have the CD at hand, could you enter the DiscID ([How_to_Add_Disc_IDs])? And while you're at it, you may want to add the fingerprints ([AcoustID]).
  • If you want to add additional information like who recorded it, where was it mastered, etc. you may want to use the relationship editor. Click "Edit relationships" on the right side.
  • [Style/Titles/Abbreviations]
  • [Style/Titles/Multiple_titles]

Notes

  • You can use the MusicBrainz ID in the relationship editor
    • Klicking through tons of similar items? Search in another window and put the URL in the input line.
  • Enter Unicode
    • Linux: <CTRL-SHIFT-u>, <hex-code>, <space>
    • Windows: Press and hold <ALT>, <+> on the numpad, <hex-code>, release <ALT>

Open questions

  • How can edits be protected?
    • Sometimes the spelling is special, some annotations are non-trivial. Is there a way to subscribe to releases instead of artists?
    • At that time, there's only two ways to "protect" stuff: (a) write a big fat warning in the release annotation and/or (b) subscribe to the artists, and vote/watch the changes. Now, there's some discussion to address this in DataQuality. -- RobertKaye 2007-02-12
  • Will there be more filters and options to search for edits?
    • I'm still missing "order by closing date", "All my open edits that have comments from someone else", "All open edits from other editors that I commented" and "All my open edits that are in conflict with another open edit".

Disclaimer

I think this is a good place to collect open questions and resolved issues. Drop me a line if I'm wrong. I will delete this page then.

  • Please don't delete it. It's your page after all ;). Now, maybe this is not the most appropriate place to ask questions, as most people won't notice (errr... well, that leaves you with answers from the "not-most" people :p). There are two good places for fast answers: the users mailing list, and IRC. -- dmppanda 20:54, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
