Hello, bjh21. Welcome to MusicBrainz! Thank you for helping to make the database better.
I really appreciate your conscientiousness in wanting to do right by the Code of Conduct. Be reassured that while trying to follow every last of our arcane rules and guidelines is wonderful, making edits is also wonderful, even if they aren’t always perfect.
Remember, we have a voting system for most edits. This gives a chance for others to review your work. Make good edit notes when you make your edits. Then be responsive to comments during voting. If someone points out how to do better, take that to heart. Maybe it’s worth cancelling edits that are wrong. More often, it’s better to accept the imperfect edit as forward progress, then make another edit which improves the record even more.
If you make an edit and then have a question about how best to handle it, by all means, make a forum post asking your question, linking to your edit, and explaining why you make the choice you did. That will probably turn into votes on your edit, which is great, and edit comments, which is great, and maybe even an illuminating forum conversation.
Thank you in advance for your contributions!
