Requests for Votes Thread

9 posts were split to a new topic: Can a playlist be considered a release?

Can I please ask for votes on this edit:

I attached a DiscID on a wrong disc (out of 14), and I’m not sure what problems could occurs if the same ID is used for different discs (of the same release) when ripping or tagging.

I need some eyes on this edit.
TL;DR a major publisher changed its name and some other info, and this editor is trying to hijack an old iteration by a similar name for it. This goes against years of precedent.

I need this edit quickly approved so a track doesn’t get messed up by an album merge.


I’d like some opinion on my proposed edit.

Edit #82371383


Please discuss in below thread (not here) and conclude in the edit notes:

I would like to notify editors from the edit history, by order of appearance:

  1. @DigitalLove

  5. @Kid_Devine
  6. @accridEYE
  7. @ibitsu
  8. @Cryoclaste
  9. @chaban
  10. @finalsummer

I’d like some input in this merge

As provided in the edit note, they share identical wikidata item, and after a quick google search the apparent misspelling is from a TBS producer rather than the composer linked.

In this release/release group

the artist information is wrong and the correct one is the following

as per publisher catalog

How to proceed: changing artist and merging or deleting?

In almost all cases you should merge rather than delete.

Arguably this could be credited to Batagraf/Jon Balke; both names appear on the front cover and in the ECM listing. However, the discogs listing has full cover art which shows that the back cover, spine, and the disc itself only credit Batagraf , so personally I would leave it at that.


Accidentally double made an event, by “resubmitting form” :sweat_smile:

Can anyone here quickly review/approve my edit? It’s just a small edit

I’d like some opinions on this.
For those out of the loop, I made the ticket for the “artistic director” relationship 3 years ago, not realizing that the same relationship could be applied to individual artists as well. Something inside me says this is inappropriate, but my knowledge is limited.

and now, unfortunately, the retaliatory edits/votes happen.
Retaliate is a strong word, maybe “sour grape edits” is a better word to use. Maybe “use A to justify B” edits.

background: the original edit is a simple removal of disambiguation. No biggie. No real right or wrong answer with that. Except, in the meantime, someone (me) added 2 artists of the same name. Both are songwriters with works listed at BMI, not random YouTube artists.

So, the editor decided with the two new edits:

  1. merge a possible match even though no one has been able to confirm they are the same. Even I suspect they are the same but am unable to confirm. Anecdotal is all I find. Nothing that says, absolutely, yes, merge. (which is why I created the artist instead of adding it to the original)
  2. Rename the other artist so that the original artist is again the only remaining artist of that exact name, which would justify the original edit (removal of disambiguation). This would also make the newly named artist a one-of-a-kind named artist, which would not require disambiguation.

So, we start with 3 same-named artists with 3 disambiguation. The end result, if the edits go through, would be 2 different named artists with 0 disambiguation.

Take a look. Read the history. Voice opinions. Vote.

Can somebody please approve so the medium of this rather poor release I’m trying to improve could be changed to a CD.
To do: fix the tracklist and re-create the incorrectly merged recording for track 9.

I want some input on this. Maybe I’ve misunderstood the guidelines for the past 6 years and the 100s of edits I’ve seen dealing with this.
