Getting back into MusicBrainz editing after many years absent, and I’m still getting a handle on some of the new features, data types, etc. While working on another edit I noticed some real weirdness with the Various Artists speclal-purpose artist.
The main weirdness is it doesn’t look like it can be edited directly, though relationships can still be done. I suppose that’s to avoid abuse? But at the moment it has a Japanese wikipedia page linked as the main wikipedia page which seems… odd. Shouldn’t the English language version of the phrase be linked to an English Wikipedia page, and then localized translations link to their respective pages?
I don’t want to presume any European/white-centric view and I think localization is awesome, I just can’t do it for anything other than English.
And looking at the relationships tab (https://musicbrainz.org/artist/89ad4ac3-39f7-470e-963a-56509c546377/relationships) there’s a handful of weird Appearances linked in that… I… I just can’t fathom how or why they even got there.
Finally, it seems like there’s a bajillion junk tags (https://musicbrainz.org/artist/89ad4ac3-39f7-470e-963a-56509c546377/tags) and while many of them are downvoted… I guess they can’t be removed? Or just keep getting re-added?
Shouldn’t tags be limited for this?
Can tags even be removed at all??
Thanks for any help in getting an old user back to speed and please, help me regain my sanity…
