Unknown artists, records in tables


#1

Hi, I have local db. In recording table there are some rows with ‘name’ column value: [unknown] [untitled] [silence]. What does they mean? Also in artist_credit table I see [unknown] in “name” column. What is it?

Maybe this “Special Purpose Artist - Do not add releases here, if possible”

For the tracks this are naming conventions when a track has no title or a track maybe has some title but it is unknown, see also https://wiki.musicbrainz.org/Style/Unknown_and_untitled/Special_purpose_track_title
