        can anyon think of why pasting a url in pure ascii when related to (parenthesis) and such would be a problem vs. putting the ugly %28, %29 url's ?
      • as an AR link and such...
      • BrianG
        i dont see why it's a problem
      • or an issue
      • a URL is a URL
      • teleGUISE_
        i was just curious I know i've never had a problem with browsers i use.. but since i am not an opera user or mac if one of their browsers had issues with hyperlinks containing () ' " etc..
      • BrianG
        where is someone saying to use one over the other?
      • teleGUISE_
        no where... i happen to be working on another artist that has quite a few wikipedia albums and it reminded me to ask.. my answer was probably going to be if it didnt work in a certain browser to get a new one anyway :O but i was just curious so i didnt have to hear someone whining later
      • i gather wikipedia only does it that way to make it easier to distinguish for people using alternate language sets from symbols
      • BrianG
        browsers that can't read one or the other are buggy.
      • and the only one that i've heard has issues is Maxathon? or something like that
      • teleGUISE_
        ruaok: question for when ur back .. does mb still get revenue when purchases are made from 'Amazon Marketplace Sellers' ?? Such as something like this - http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000006J6T/
      • BrianG
        there was a small discussion on mb-style about this on 1/30/06
      • teleGUISE_
        ahh... well for the 50 people that use that oh well ;)
      • BrianG
        i dont see any amazon associates refrence in any outgoing amazon link from MB
      • teleGUISE_
        i guess you normally wouldnt until you clicked sellers.. like such as here - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000006J6T/
      • what i was getting at was adding a enhancement request to allow customer uploaded images to be able to be used for asin links.. such as that.. i didn't look before i added and as you can see here - http://musicbrainz.org/album/c912f231-b4f4-4a67... this album dioesn't display anything but a placeholder
      • BrianG
        oh i read your question wrong
      • i like how wikipedia handels album covers
      • teleGUISE_
        didn't know the in's and out's of how working with amazon is and displaying of images via sellers.. though i guess if amazon can do it then there should be no violation made for mbrainz to use them as well
      • BrianG
        well.. if t he album being sold already has a cover on amazon than it'll show up. so i dont think its exactly a marketplace issue.
      • teleGUISE_
        yes.. i asked about the possibility of doing that here before but 'of course' there are so many other more pressing issues that it wasn't a top 10 for ru. Of course it would be nice but really doesnt help provide revenue & may just increase traffic
      • BrianG
        but yeah.. place holder images would be nice to not see
      • teleGUISE_
        theres obviously big copyright issues when it comes to cover images
      • BrianG
        maybe eventually amazon will yoink decent user submited images to thier actual album cover database
      • i think under a certain image resolution would be fine for fair use
      • teleGUISE_
        im guessing so too.. since thats exactly as how wikipedia even states it

      • it's kind of nice how amazon does it... they use theirs and if none display users.. but while some are 500x500 most are 300x300 and then quite a few thumbnails
      • i guess since amz sells the product there isnt a copyright issue... iirc amz doesnt limit the image size for upload or do they?
      • BrianG
        i dont remember. i've only uploaded a handful to them
      • teleGUISE_
        same here... im glad many new covers are 500x500 .. i use theirs for my stuff when thats the case cuz it saves me from having to take the cover out of jewel case stick it on the scanner, scan it, stick it back in the jewel case ... repeat..

        definitely the way the cover is written is Super Fly Disco Font - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00000JFV9/
      • yllona
        that's more late psychedelia, post peter max. that's the original cover art
