Like this: https://musicbrainz.org/artist/efff5676-7a24-40ea-b42c-ce33c0b77528

I glanced through the documentation but didn’t find anything relevant.

Just means that they currently have open edits

Some changes (“edits”) are in the voting process:

After 7 days if there are no No votes, or fewer No votes than Yes votes, the edit is applied.

Thanks for the reply guys

Yellow. Purple. Green.
Those are the 3 colors you’ll find - it depends on what type of edit is pending.

There’s red too, for “remove” edits.
