AutoEditors

AutoEditors are Editors who have been trusted to make edits that are automatically approved (AutoEdits) without going through the normal voting process, as well as approve other editors' edits. There is a list of all AutoEditors.

Attention.png All Editors and AutoEditors are expected to follow the MusicBrainz CodeOfConduct.

Privileges of AutoEditors

AutoEditors can make the following types of edits without going to a vote (See the page on EditTypes for a more detailed description):

Note that the edit types marked with */+ may be auto-applied even for non-AutoEditors in some cases:

* if the change only affects lower/upper-case and/or accents,
+ if the change only adds information.


Obligations of an AutoEditor

AutoEditors should always align themselves to the CodeOfConduct. Furthermore they should be able to look beyond their own nose regarding the data they edit. It is good to have experts in certain areas but every AutoEditor should at least know the basic rules for editing data in every music area and be familiar with all kinds of structural edits and processes. Additionally it is always good if they show some interest in the community, the FutureWork and general issues.

Becoming an AutoEditor

In order to become an AutoEditor, another AutoEditor has to nominate you (see AutoEditorNomination). If your nomination receives two seconders, and a simple majority of votes, you will be promoted to AutoEditor status (this may require you to logout, and login again to be activated).
