Ok, thanks again for the fast replies guys.
This forum and it’s contributors are really great.
I mean that!
But, I think I am stepping out of the game.
I recently joined with the intention just to contribute by entering some data I have available and is missing at MusicBrainz, and was expecting I could more or less enter what I would find printed on the covers and sleeves that I own.
But I have been getting the feeling that machines, theorists, and analists have set most of the the rules, and less-smart/computer-savvy/logical-thinking ‘humans’ with all their idiosyncracies are being curbed to adapt and conform to the existing theories and schemes layed out.
Music is made by musicians. Albums, credits, covers are usually created by creative people. And it’s not always ‘logical’ or conforming to ‘rules’.
I have stumbled upon more small roadblocks, restrictions, and other minor issues than I currently have the flexibility, energy, and time for to adjust to, or to be of any help improving on.
I think I would be spending more time producing ‘tickets’ than actually adding useful content to the database.
I am really sorry if this comes across as a bit bitter, and it is certainly not intended to be that, but I am writing and explaining this because I want to be honest to the members of this great forum.
