When it comes to artists with initials (BT, REM, UB40, etc), should their artist sort name contain a dot after each letter or not? I haven’t tried it out as I don’t want to mess with the data, but I’d imagine this might make a difference when it comes to their alphabetisation. As in, does BT come before or after The Beatles, and do REM come before or after Rage Against the Machine? With the dots separating the characters, it would theoretically be possible for each user to decide for themselves whether to make use of them or not. But I’m probably overthinking things yet again.
What do you think?
