Revision as of 14:45, 26 January 2006

I've written up as much as I can think too at the moment. To try and remove as much ambiguity as possible. If anyone else can think of something that needs to be addressed, please add to the page and/or the discussion here. Thanks in advance --Nanenj 08:16, 20 January 2006 (PST)

I've added a couple non-album/LP's to a couple of the artists that I've added in the past week since joining. One is an EP on the Belle & Sebastian page and the other is a compilation on the Beatles page. Any thoughts? --Nash 08:52, 23 January 2006 (PST)

Various Tidbits

There's still lots of things that need the strengthening of discussion of some sort. Most notable, recently questioning the putting the year at the end of album links. I've gotten to thinking about that and that could be a little bothersom due to when albums are re-released, there could be confusion on what year to use. Also, someone's suggested categorizing songs as well. I see no reason why we can't do this as well. Categorizing songs would give an alphabetical listing of songs, and a 'song' category index where we could see the number of actual songs lyriki knows about and not just 'good' articles. --Nanenj 00:56, 26 January 2006 (PST)

I suggest we use the original date for the actual album page and create redirect pages for identical re-released albums. As for a song category, I'm all for it. --MindlessXD 05:48, 26 January 2006 (PST)
Yeah, original date makes sense. It's easy to figure out by using amg.com (all music guide). There will be times though when we'd want to use a re-released album, such as, when they (the artist or publisher) decide to have bonus tracks at the end. If you want to input a song that was a bonus on a re-released CD, then why not have the album twice except that the difference would be at the end of the album name you will need to add "Bonus". Any thoughts? --Nash 06:58, 26 January 2006 (PST)
That, or if the album needs a different track list for re-release, we could use the One True Thing:Finally... (2004) style. --MindlessXD 07:08, 26 January 2006 (PST)
Speaking of which, I was debating whether or not to do that for Coheed and Cambria:The Second Stage Turbine Blade (2002), but the difference there was that the tracks were all in the same order, only with 3 extra songs on the end. Also, in the case of One True Thing:Finally... (2004) there is actually different cover art for the original and the re-release, although I didn't find a picture of the original cover to put on the page. In any case, I think that for re-released albums it would be better to put all the information on the page for the original release of the album. Just my take... --Evelyn 12:35, 26 January 2006 (PST)
not only re-release but albums can be released at different times in different countries. I still dislike the whole year of release thing at the end of the album, in part cause I'm a programmer and we are a lazy lot, and I really don't want to be bothered trying to figure that out so that I can add some lyrics. It also goes against my "Keep it simple" philosophy. saying that.. if thats what people want.. so be it. Bailey 12:41, 26 January 2006 (PST)
Well, a note, just to add lyrics, you don't really need to know that :). As per something you mentioned elsewhere, just to add lyrics, you need artist and songname, that's it ;) We've accomplished simplicity there, I think. One thing I've thought about is we could go back and indeed make seperate namespaces. Artist: Album: and Song: Then there would be no need for the date clarification on the end, and it would still end up looking pretty uniform. However, we'd still have slightly elongated names due to the keywords on each entry. --Nanenj 13:45, 26 January 2006 (PST)
