        well it's like.. if I was going to do it as an instrument. if it was an instrument. I'd just add the name as an alias on "synth pop" and leave it as that and people could use whatever as an genre "credit" but the genre is "synth pop"

        because I've read the alias documentation details but for some instruments that I want to add the name is the same in more than one language, and strangely some different instruments seem to have the same aliases

        also found an example of my previous: instrument vibraphone with credit "vibes" - has no alias vibes (which will change as I'll add it, but.)

        "viol" was historically menanng basically "stringed instrument we putted a bow on" so A LOT of instrument has that as alias
      • reosarevok
        Alias same as instrument or at least 1.5 might make sense

        sigh. I wish people would post a link to the instrument speaking of, when creating tickets like "add this and this alias"

        also Y is the alias language dropdown not a search for it drop-down like the instruments are? others: relationships roles in general, and country for releases

      • like, regular add instrument ask are really fast and easy, but the alias ones are harder for me
      • (I was thinking maybe the other instrument alias userscript too)

      • the hope is that once autumn vacation comes, I'll (after I sober up and polish of my backlog😿🙀)have time for some instruments 𝑎𝑛𝑑 write up that userscript alias thing post on com.meb.org (unless someone beats me to it by then(hint😽hint))

      • and it would thus insert edits with adding alias of norwegian, swedish and japanese with official yes and type instrument name, and a second one for japanese; official no, and type search hint.
      • I wanted to ask about this: would it be possible for someone to write a small userscript for me that would do the following: given a list of names, comma/whatever delimited with set commands, create a set of "add alias to instrument" edits.

      • also I hope someone can write some sort of alias adder script that can take just a string of aliases (with maybe some words for additional options) so adding all the aliases to instruments wont be such an ardeous task
