I’m having a problem as the editor is forcing an ISNI sort and that’s blocking other edits I want to make.

Edit #52155417


Is a remix with 100% new music a new work or a recording of the original work?

I share this view:

But I’ll let you all decide:

edit #52017124

PS: Please, just one vote!


So there’s this one editor who likes to add disambiguation comments to recordings, regardless of whether they’re needed or not. I entered a bunch of edits to clean up some of these unnecessary disambiguations and got bombed with No votes: title because long URL is looooong

This same editor also hit me with a barrage of No votes to remove non-existent relationships (after I called him out for adding them).


Can somebody tell me what’s going on with this edit?

I submitted it about a week ago to update the artist credits. The waiting period on the edit has ended but I am not seeing the changes in MB or in Picard.


Ignore this question. I don’t know if there was a delay in the waiting period expiring and the changes showing up on the website and in Picard but the changes are showing up now.


Hello everyone,

Could you please vote for this change, or maybe an auto-editor can do it :

I think I made a mistake to solve a recording conflict, and adding this disembiguation string was not a good idea at all IMO.

Thanks in advance!


The MusicBrainz idea of “one day remaining” is a little confused as to what a day is. Always look closer at the actual expiry time. “One day remaining” means “less that two days” so can actually be 47hours…


There’s this one editor who’s been adding bootleg digital downloads of various releases. Recently they added two “versions” of the same bootleg, with the only difference being slight text differences in the cover art (which itself was badly Photoshopped in on both releases). There’s a bit of a debate whether both versions should be kept, or only one; I think we need some more opinions.


Any chance that I could get some more vote/input on edit #52337216. Editor is trying to change an entire instance (artist credit) of “feat” (no period) with “feat.” (with period), stating that it must be a typo.

There is only a day left in the voting.


I don’t usually ask for votes, but this is a major album release (new Janelle Monáe) and this edit could use early approval so as to avoid any more chaos:

I explained everything in the note and provided the cd extraction log for proof (it’s from the same American issue). There’s an obvious typo (title swap) on the back cover track listing.

edit: also the release could use an annotation explaining that that the titles on the cover art (#11, #12) don’t align with the actual contents of the medium.


So there was a soundtrack album that came out recently, and it was initially released digitally as one medium with 27 tracks. It was announced in advance that the CD version would be on 2 discs, but there was nothing (at least when I checked) to indicate which tracks fell on which disc. I finally got ahold of said release and have 2 edits in the pipeline to split the medium in two; the reason I’m posting this here is I won’t be able to submit a Disc ID for disc 1 until the edit is applied.


I need a disambiguation updated. Thanks.


Trying to put this puppy to bed. and



Why are those not auto edits, @Llama_lover?


I don’t know? Should they have been?


It should have been, unless you have checked the Make all edits votable. option of the release editor (las tab). :slight_smile:


I recently had a collection of capitalization edits go into the voting queue, too. Maybe there’s a bug somewhere?


Yes. that was it. Now it is unchecked. Thanks @jesus2099!


I just fixed an artist credit from an electronic band called Dog to a Queensbridge rapper:

Then I realized that on discogs the the recording I edited as well as one of the recordings of the rapper-Dog credit A-Dog. One other rapper-Dog recording credits Dog (5), but since they both collaborate with Queensbridge rappers I assume they are the same person.

So I’d like to merge our Dog into A-Dog after above edits have gone through.

PS: Thanks for the votes. Merge is on it’s way. :slight_smile:


I just added this album, and then decided to change the album artist based on the cover. Well, somehow that led to the tracklist getting completely screwy and showing different credits in different tabs (I figure one of my user scripts went haywire). The only way I could find to get it right again was to delete the medium and re-add it, so now there are two mediums. This edit is to delete the old medium:
