So I’m looking at my Big Finish released (yes I’m a Doctor Who fan) and found entries which state “This is the CD release of the recording, requires https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/MBS-8725 to be resolved for proper release format information”
Given I have the actual CDs and so have the proper track listing; can upload disc ID, etc. is there any reason I can’t provide the details.
You got the point, just go ahead and add as much data as you can/want, the original editor did not have access to this kind of information and left it empty for future editors to complete.
There is already a (long but interesting) discussion about entering audio dramas into the database, it even mentions the examples you are now interested in:
TL;DR: Use relationships for all people involved in the audio drama, the AC should include only the most important artists while staying close to the credits on the (front) cover. These are usually the writers, maybe also some important actors… At this point the interpretation of style guidelines and people’s opinions begin to diverge
You can absolutely provide the details. (That’s why they’re there)
Audio dramas currently doesn’t have a specific style guide. I would agree when it were an audiobook, but with audio dramas the actors are also immensely important - just like with movies. With- or without someone has a problem. There was a huge thread about this when I cleaned up and completed Big Finish: How to enter an audio drama into the database the best?
