Dear barney06, Bendysan, blues99man, dany, freakscener, Guesswho, Jeff Chamberlain, Huffy, jojo, maryhelen, peter_nl, rbrnb, roscoebank, VirileVagabond and Wikke,

We have the pleasure at announce that we have selected you for our brandnew feature: the Certified Contributor!

Based on your qualitative input and your obvious enthousiasm for our project, we think you are the best members to test and use this new access level. From now on, you'll be able to:

  • Add missing information to artists: Identify as person or member, visual, birth date, death date, home country, and free biography details.
  • View editor notes for all database objects. These notes contain research-related information by the editors.
  • View attachments for all database objects. For example, in the case of releases you will often find the back cover scan.
  • View and post in the editor boards Ideas & Suggestions and Bugs & Problems.

This is just the start of this project. Based on how this goes we may very well open up other parts of the database to certified contributors. Feel free to make suggestions, this is what might (or not) implement in the future:

  • Flagging performances as instrumentals
  • Linking existing performances to existing releases
  • Create artist relations
  • Delete YT videos that don't play
  • Adding release visuals when missing

We sincerely hope you will enjoy this upgrade and look forward to your feedback!

Bastien

I appreciate the invite, but I don't really understand what the new stuff I can do is all about.

Does the Certified Contributors have access to read all of the editor guidelines??


If they do and they want to ask questions about why we added something a certain way, I would hope that they would quote the guideline and then ask why we did something a certain way .
