Before everything my apologies if it's a bit uncomfortable this post.

I came up with this guy and if you try to get to the bandcamp's page of almost every band he got you'll came up with a "404 error" or simply the web broken or taken down, when I see this I start to doubt if it was a self-whitewash attempt, I saw other cases where people tried to whitewash their past here.

(By the way, for those who are reading this and are not very familiar with the site, each band is evaluated just MERELY by its music).

I'm seriously disquiet about this. Cheers and thanks :)

Well, if he’s erasing information about his projects on other websites, that’s his prerogative, no? I don’t see how it affects what we do on MA. We can’t tell people not to delete their own Bandcamp pages.

EDIT: Of course, the links should be removed now that they don’t link to anything.

Thanks for your quickly response Mutant :)

I have my suspicions that those artists will try to erase everything they can later... Maybe not right now.. Today maybe is a bandcamp entry, tomorrow a YouTube channel, later their tattoos..

Reminds me Goatpenis situation.......... (Sao Paulo's antifascists are brave... Sips beer) Anyway thank you again :)

I get your concern, but whitewashing really only concerns us insofar as it means people are maliciously changing or deleting (or requesting to have changed or deleted) information that is correct and already available on our database. We don’t have the power to do anything, nor should we, when a band starts doing it to their other websites.

It could be that Bandcamp is simply deleting his pages due to them not supporting that kind of imagery
