Another web cover popped up today but I can't add it since the original mashup is added as a medley of sorts rather than a new work:



Actually an example (in my eyes) why I dislike web covers. Looks to have been officially released:


Stairway to Gilligan's Island · Puddles Pity Party

Stairway to Gilligan's Island

℗ 2020 Puddles Pity Party

Released on: 2020-07-06








Yep:

Didn't realize he had officially released it. I'll have to add it soon.

Dommage que l'on ne peut pas mettre les interprètes dans une pick-liste, ce serait bien de pouvoir voir tous les morceaux du même interprète, peut-être une idée à creuser ?

Les regrouper par "channel" tu veux dire?

These officially released "web covers" are why I earlier recommended (and enhancement implemented) error reports for w-covers. Not as important to me but perhaps to others, someone researches a performance, files an error report on the w-cover, but the w-cover submitter gets the "credit".

dans la liste des interprètes "Performer" , pouvoir ajouter des chanteur(ses) YouTube avec des grandes collections , par exemple Sarah Collins dont j'ai plus que 690 covers, une grand partie est dèjà inclue dans SHS

Are you aware you would only be able to attribute error reports to editors?

Don't understand this response. While I can assign error reports, I rarely change who (if anyone) the system assigns.


As things typically go, I find/confirm a cover that I later find on site as a w-cover or (treating a w-cover as a lead), I search/confirm that a recording has been officially released. This results in two options: a) submit as normal, noting the incorrect w-cover or b) file an error report.


Not enough experience to determine the standard editor processing for option a); however, option b) results in my doing most of the work, yet the find gets credited to the w-cover submitter who didn't go through the trouble to research. As stated above, this isn't a huge deal for me personally, but to others?

Is there something in the works for adding web covers by joint performers? It would be nice to add this new Raffi/Yo-Yo Ma duet of "Baby Beluga":

Ok, l'idée ce serait donc de regrouper les web covers par "Youtube user"


Yes, that would be nice. If someone likes certain web cover, he would be able to view other performances by this youtube artist.

You have to work around it a bit. Go to the page of one of the artists, create a new alias, then move it to the appropriate artists.


After that, you can select that alias when adding the web cover.

Thanks Michael! I was able to follow your instructions clearly and add the web cover. Now to sleep with "Baby Beluga" running through my head...
