I thought of that one too, unfortunately it doesn’t go in the collection. all the place names are in the lyrics, not the title… maybe it gets an honorable mention?
I did start the list song tag though, surprised it wasn’t already a thing here. if anyone’s interested, there’s even a Wikipedia article!
Are you all using @kellnerd’s batch add to collection script?
No more need to run then
While I also really love the batch add to collection script and use it all the time, I have not coded it. This credit goes to @yyoung
But I will probably announce some new userscripts and bookmarklets later this year on which I am currently working
Can’t put a pin in that one. Or is it a town in Georgia? That state seems to be surprisingly common.
Not using the script, I do things the hard way. Middle mouse button and open loads of tabs. I like the manual way as it also lets me see how often I overlap with someone else’s idea (probably less than 1% of the time)
As I only own a single Dylan CD I thought I’d leave him to his fans. I have more obscure stuff to add first. I focus on stuff I can actually verify.
Sounds like fun: I’ll gladly add my share of (mostly non-english) titles/works with places if you add me
I think this worthy mission needs its own thread. Maybe @Freso or other forum mod can punt us off to a new thread from post #91 ? This Off Topic thread is now going very much on one topic and that is therefore off topic for off topic and needs its own topic.
Welcome to the mission @chabreyflint. Warning - can be addictive. And the more obscure the locations the better. “Must be able to put a pin in it on a map” is the simple rule I have followed.
Yes please, I wont add much but I’ll add them as I come across them
Welcome to the madness @aerozol and @chabreyflint .
Again, apologies for dragging this conversation of off-topic subject matter off course! I didn’t expect this much response to this silly quest - happy for further talk to be in a seperate thread etc.
No apology required. This is on topic to off topic, but now such a topic in its own right I think it deserves its own thread. You have found many fellow location loons and I can see this conversation expanding. Nice idea
If you’re okay with non-English Works, I’d be happy to add ones I know of/come across too.
I’ll add you to the list of contributors
Mecca - No
Why is Mecca (Wikipedia) not an allowed place? If it’s just for being a religiously relevant place, then Jerusalem also shouldn’t be allowed… and probably places like Stonehenge too and lots more.
That is me being an ignoramus - will update the description.
Have updated the description.
Everyday is a school day here at Metabrainz
So looking through some possible additions, a couple of questions.
- Is “Earth” something that belongs in this collection, or is it too generic (similar to other celestial objects)? (This was also asked previously by @jesus2099 but I didn’t notice an answer to this.)
- Are adjectives okay? Like, uh, “California” is clearly okay, but what about “Californian”? (Or Denmark/Danish, Canada/Canadian, etc.)
this is such a cool project! i’d love to contribute, do you think i could have access?
Can I be added ? I have time to waste
your wish has been granted - welcome to the fun house!
Indeed you have been added, please waste time on this fruitful endeavour
