Our lead page tells us we already have 45669 artists (singers, bands, songwriters) already listed. This is already very impressive. But there are tens of thousands not listed yet. So every week, we have new names added...


So I think it would be a very cool idea to have a listing of newly accepted artists (singers or bands) that are appearing for the first time on our database.


This will be a great opportunity to "discover" some brand new artists, or to get to know artists from way back who had been totally disregarded thus far perhaps for many years and may come from the fifties, sixties etc...


A small program could be devised such that every time a new artist page is created and added to the 45669 we already have as performers and songwriters, there names would automatically appear on the "newly listed" feature with a useful links to the pages concerned for us to check.


These artists would possibly have other works not listed as yet, so it would give our editors the opportunity and the incentive to make some additional research on them to add further works to their credit.

This already exists. You must be signed in as a member.


Under "Browse", hit the "New additions" button and you will have a list of newly added artists, media, samples and more.

Go to "Browse" in the top menu.


A drop-down menu will appear. Choose 'New Additions'.


A list of the 100 most recently added covers will appear. Above this list there will be a link that will show you the 100 most recently added artists.

I know about this feature. It lists:


New covers - The newest cover additions to our database.

New samples - The newest sample additions to our database

New works - The newest work additions to our database.


I was actually thinking about a listing of artists not found at all in our database and a page has been newly created for them say this week by one of the editors.


The listings provided are a good lead, but almost all of them did already have pages and more is being added to their credit.

Looks like there's a problem with access rights. For editors, there are the following links in place of the three you can see:


New artists - The newest artist additions to our database.

New artist relations - The newest artist relation additions to our database.

New covers - The newest cover additions to our database.

New labels - The newest label additions to our database.

New mediums - The newest medium additions to our database.

New performances - The newest performance additions to our database.

New samples - The newest sample additions to our database

New works - The newest work additions to our database.


I've reported a bug to get all links visible to everybody.

That's great. So some good will come out of this thread and more people will have access to vital interesting leads Smile


After my posting, I notice the features have been duly added and now we have access to all of them. Thanks.
