Requests for Votes Thread

Would you mind to rename this topic?
It’s often difficult to find for me and Request for Votes was more clear, I thought.
It was closed recently but I would have kept that (older and more clear) and closed this one here, instead. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Calling auto-mods is not necessarily the most important thing in those requests, I thought.

It might have to be a bit different, because this thread isn’t for a single request - something like “Requests for Votes Thread”?

If others agree then I can change it, no problem.


I’d love to get this one through quickly: Edit #108357959 - MusicBrainz.

It switches track times of the last two tracks which I’d entered incorrectly based off of the spotify release which has those two tracks the other way around from the vinyl.

(I’d like to sort out the two different recordings of Reproche – would be nice to have correct track times showing when people vote on that.)

Associated edit to remove the spotify link: Edit #108357960 - MusicBrainz

Incidentally, at the risk of taking this off-topic: Is it considered ok to add track durations to a vinyl release based on the associated digital release? It seems like a reasonable assumption that they’d match, absent evidence to the contrary. I guess my ideal solution would be to add the digital release separately to the group, and have the vinyl release show implied track durations if the tracklist doesn’t have them – would that be a reasonable feature?

Might want to start a thread on that, but I would say that times shouldn’t be taken straight from another source. Personally I only add vinyl (or cassette) track times if they are listed somewhere on the artwork. Otherwise I let it be “implied” - I even remove them from discogs imports when I can’t find them on scans.


IMHO, timings should always be taken from the exact release, please leave the durations blank if you don’t know them. And this concerns any medium really, not just vinyl.


Alright, here’s a separate edit that flat removes the track durations. Edit #108384926 - MusicBrainz Let’s see which one wins :smiley:

(I’d still like input on what you all think on displaying implied track durations on durationless releases, best over here Track durations for vinyl releases - #2 by IvanDobsky)

What’s the official policy of MB, do we remove tittles such as “Rabbi” from a Artist name?

I cleaned up a bad recording merge on Elvis, but the performance relationships are still merged together if anyone wants to take a look at correcting them.

Bad merge / mixed recording:
New correct target for “Just Because”: Recording “Just Because” by Elvis Presley - MusicBrainz

In general it’s all based on credits - if a performer doesn’t include their title on album credits, then it shouldn’t be part of their entry name. Unfortunately I can’t read Hebrew (I could ask my wife, but she’s a bit rusty :sweat_smile: ) so I can’t say for certain what’s on that cassette.

Maybe add an alias with Rabbi or work it into the disambiguation?


Asking for help for these remove relationship edits:

Context: on the thread I have found a very weird series it was decided to remove all those off-topic artist series such as “death by…”, “arrested for…”, “studied at…”, etc. which indeed have been already successfully removed by other editors; comprehensibly only original creator is/was downvoting them.

I am confused by these Remove edits.

First - various CDs that appears in film box sets. Sometimes a deluxe boxset of a film is released that includes a music CD of the score. Surely these are MusicBrainz allowed?

A common thing that happened in the UK past was a newspaper would release a two or three disc album over a number of issues. A case would be supplied so you could house these all as one item on your shelf. Are these one or two releases? I am especially confused by the first of these two removals as it destroys the only record there is on a volume one. And the second would have made more sense as a merge?

Many more of the same here.

Maybe the DVD-only releases should be removed (I don’t know) but @wcw1966 should at least be given the heads up that @Antiguastrea is removing their releases.


wcw1966 has likely stopped contributions due to ill health (edit: linked note where this is noted)

I have bought this up to no avail here: DVD Video content that isn't explicitly related to music (including stand-up comedy, feature films, television etc.)

These are more of these “fringe releases” where we need to have a proper debate about what we do and don’t want as a community before someone maverick’s this


I would like to ask for votes of this edit, as it is the start to fixing a bad merge.


Me and another editor made edits for a new release.

Open to votes for or against, just want more of a consensus. Trying to rename track Little Things (Nia Archives remix) based on how it’s listed on Bleep, Qobuz, Deezer, Apple, etc, but another editor says it’s redundant to have (Nia Archives remix) in the title.
