I’ve seen that this problem is partially mentioned in the forum but I decided to start a new thread because in my view there is a very big problem in the site, moreover, it is a real mess.
I hardly see recording in the site that is not for merging.
Let’s put live recordings aside and discuss only the studio ones.
I think, this must be clear that, in most of the cases, there are only One Studio Recording of a work (song) by an artist.
In addition, which rarely happens, artists are possibly to get together for another studio re-recording, later in the years. This will be a Second Studio Recording of a work.
And the above recordings are released numerous times in the years.
To be a useful encyclopedia, we should see exactly this in Musicbrainz.
Now, I see tons of recordings here, created mistakenly by the users.
For example, this Boney M. song have three studio recordings:
You know, I have a release with that song and I cannot add it in the database because the database is blocked with these recordings.
Now, I have to merge them and wait for a long time.
I think, this is an emergency for admins to emphasis on the fast procedure of merging all these recordings.
