Relatively new to the API, so not sure if I'm missing something obvious.
Trying to populate a table of Artists with their MBIDs. It's working OK, apart from the odd few that don't seem to be matching.
Dug into it a bit more, and I'm seeing stuff like this:
http://beta.musicbrainz.org/search?query=Scythian&type=artist&method=indexed -- 5 results
http://beta.musicbrainz.org/ws/2/artist?query=name:Scythian -- 0 results
Am I using the search API right? It worked fine for something like 180 of the 200 artists I'm importing, I just can't see a reason why the rest are coming back blank.
