I’m planning to use some code that I wrote to rewrite old Tidal URLs of the forms
track variants) to the canonical
https://tidal.com/artist/123 form that @yvanzo instituted as part of MBS-10621. I’d like to do this so that I can look up an artist or album MBID via a single API call instead of needing to make multiple calls with all the possible URL forms.
Could a developer please set the
derat_bot user’s type to “bot” as described in https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Code_of_Conduct/Bots? I’ve tried emailing the support address and asking on
#metabrainz, but I haven’t heard back from anyone. Thanks!
Sorry but it doesn’t seem that we received any mail for registering your bot; @reosarevok will look into it.
Did you run it on a test server? (test.musicbrainz.org can be used for that.)
Have you checked [MBBE-63] Mark TIDAL Store URLs as ended - MetaBrainz JIRA?
Yep, I did.
#89612574 and #89612573 are some edits that I created (the
derat_test user doesn’t look like it’s been replicated to the test server, so I used my normal account there).
I think that ticket is only referring to links to the Tidal Download Store, e.g. https://store.tidal.com/album/34981731, which redirect to a help page now. Links to Tidal’s streaming service still work and are still being added to the database.
I recommend you to create and self-assign your own MBBE ticket and to refer to it in edit notes as follow-up.
Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve filed MBBE-71 to track this. After I’ve entered a few example edits into the prod database, I’ll link to them here so that others can take a look.
The bot has created its first five edits, visible here. They look correct to me, but please let me know if you feel otherwise.
