i’m in the process of cleaning up/fleshing out Bit Trip Runner2 releases, hoping to switch the artist on the RG to be an artist instead of a label/game studio

any eyes on this would be greatly appreciated!

Opened a boatload of edits to fix the artist/composer credits on this soundtrack. Would appreciate some help with reviewing/voting on it.

any eyes on this artist merge would be awesome!

another artist merge: https://musicbrainz.org/edit/80339547

I have a few merges open where I’ve switched from using artist <-> artist relationships to aliases, any feedback on if this would be greatly appreciated!

I would like https://musicbrainz.org/edit/80337416 to get a second look, as it appears to me that unrelated artists are being merged.

4 posts were split to a new topic: Handling name of transgender artist

I edited

splitting the artists in teir individial pages Julian Argüelles - MusicBrainz , The Radio Bigband Frankfurt - MusicBrainz , Gwilym Simcock - MusicBrainz , according to Discogs release: now the page Julian Arguelles and The Frankfurt Radio Big Band - MusicBrainz should be deleted?
Moreover, I merged the two pages The Radio Bigband Frankfurt - MusicBrainz and hr-Bigband - MusicBrainz , aliases of the same group: could you please check this edit in order to complete linking esternal information to the resulting page?

There is a duplicate of

with inverted release and artist: how to deal with this entry?

I’d remove unnamed tracks 17-20 (can’t find any evidence for a 20 track release) and then merge the bad release into one of the others.

Edited both the release (1, 2) and release group of the wrong entry, waiting for the edits to take effect in order to proceed to merge both of them

Could you please explain why the release

is not listed in the artist’s page?

Release groups with only promotional or bootleg releases in them wont show by default on the artist page. You have to click (Show all release groups) at the bottom.

edit: I use @jesus2099’s script ‘ALL RELEASE GROUPS’ to display everything by default.

Time to pry apart another artist! This time it is Seraph from Seraph!

I very rarely delete a release but this one seemed to warrant removal. Edit #80725245 - MusicBrainz

There should be a massive search and replace in

of the artist

with the artist

Is there any tool to perform such substitution?

Common sense should say that this artist was hijacked long long ago.

I would have thought this is an occasion where the Majority wins. Rename the Artists. If the current majority of Works are associated to the “wrong” artist then it is really the artist naming that is incorrect now.

Some release, like

could be of the American artist: the renaming may be too drastic.

I am looking at the percentage. If currently over 80% point to UK Tom Kane then logic says that is who that artist is. And the small handful that is the USA Thomas Kane can be moved to a new artist.

I don’t make the guidelines, just work on Common Sense. Majority of database users will currently have this as UK Tom Kane.

So the idea is to swap the “Artist Details”, “Date Period”, "Relationships " and “External Links” of the two artists using the “Edit” tab of the artist’a page: right?

Please vote on Edit #80786863 - MusicBrainz

Long story short, I accidentally added a bunch of empty media when copying from duplicated releases, and I can’t fix them. So I have re-created the release, and please help me delete the one I have screwed up.
