reosarevok: I think actually that unless there i an archive of some sort, saving old links is pretty useless :s
Well, I don't think we should force people to go check if there's an archive, in the first place
(although due to the archive process initiated by (forget the name) less and less links should not actually have a n archived version)
ie I mean. moing forawrd all links *are* archived
But also, if you're looking at band "The Common Name", and you find an old resource and are like "is this for the same 'The Common Name' band", and both list the same now dead myspace page or whatever, well, that's useful :)
well yes that's interesting
but use that as an example
(what I'm (slightly) worriedabotu is every single link that ever existed being on an artist)
even stuff that wasn't really that interesting or usefull
I did :) "and even if that doesn't exist it can be useful as a way to know that other page listing the same URL referred to the same artist"
yea i didn't get that for mthat. needs a little rewording? or as an example
Well, does it *hurt*? :) Most artists don't get that many links
Except for super popular ones, which probably don't have the links die that often
I agree that, say, keeping a ton of "interview" links, was someone to link them all, might be annoying, but then, those are likely to be archived and of interest to someone :/
I mean, yes
but also also, if something is archived. why not link to the archive link too?
(something i've been wondering about)
Well, ideally we'd do that automatically somehow
Although I'm not sure what's the best way
a second [archive] next to the [info] link?
Maybe. Just would be nice to only show that if it exists, but not sure how to make + store that check
Maybe bitmap or ROpdebee have ideas

hi, should I make a separate release for music videos (on youtube), or should I just put it as a (video stream) link under the digital release?

geoffreyy: music videos are separate recordings
kinduff4 is now known as kinduff
reosarevok: I agree with adding a link to IA, it's not a good idea to make it unclickable, maybe it's just temporarily unavailable or at lease it might be available on IA

huh. "Guess case" turns "´s" into "´S" ? that seems... wrong?
into " ´S" actually
oh, I see. ACUTE ACCENT
"In proper typography, U+2019 is not only the right single quotation mark, but also the preferred character for representing the apostrophe."
’ is what you want yeah
well, unless it´s artistic intent ;)
atj: how does a-tisket determine whether something is an album or an EP?
opal: doubting it's artist intent, because it's possessive
what's the release
ugh they block tor
wonder if wayback machine can help me here
yeah that one works
I'm also capitalizing the artist name there. the promo copy uses caps, etc.
yeah definitely doesnt seem intended
(btw artist intent includes violations of grammar/spelling just for future reference)
i have a few releases i need to fix because other people arent familiar with those artists and their intent at all
yeah, unless it's clearly a typo, which, given that I mostly tag digital releases, imo happens more than actual artist intent
one release i have no idea what to do with is viper's ... uh, southwest hooligan i think
original release has entirely different titles than what discogs or maybe some other releases have
and at least i dont [off] my musical tastes :^)
say that to the camera not off the record see what happens
I think Viper's music is interesting, for sure
I wonder how many people have actually bought the insane private press CDs he has on bandcamp
there's so many of them, someone would have to be willing to spend a ton of money to collect them complete
i hear that if you buy directly from viper he legit just wraps shit in a plastic bag
yeah I thought about buying a "y'all cowards" shirt, but... reconsidered after some of the stories
i'd still gladly rep him
it's you'll btw
maybe even you´ll
oh right, I realized I needed to type it
and then typed the thing he meant lol
typo or artistic intent? :D
there's a really famous one in the bay area, mac dre "fellin' myself"
the lyrics say "Feelin'" and many sources correct it, but it appears to canonically be called "fellin' myself" based on streaming and cd
haha thats great
thought he was a lumberjack from that title
atj: does the "isrcs from spotify" site actually work for you?
yyoung[m]: the reason why we make these unclickable (at least for display) is to give users a clear idea that this is not a normal working link, and because it's perfectly possible it points to porn ads or whatever now
So it seems fair to try and protect the user from that a bit - if they really want to go check, there's no problem with copying the URL and opening it :)
