I want to add some bio to an artist I just added. It’s from the back cover of some vinyl. It’s nowhere else on the web (to link to).
How do I add this information? Or is it considered unimportant/not required.?
You could use an annotation to add any text. When you open the artist’s page, there is a link “Add annotation” on the right side of the page, in the “Editing” block.
But keep in mind that annotation content is under free licenses. So while a short quotation of a liner in a text of your own is probably fine, you shouldn’t just copy the full contents of the liner, since you don’t own the rights and can’t release it under said license
why wouldn’t you just add the image
Seems lazy, and not search-friendly.
but if it is an album cover, it should be there.
Of course. And it is.
