I'm a little confused. I saw this post a while back https://www.metal-archives.com/news/view/id/258 :
"The length aspect is going to be greatly deemphasised when it comes to eligible digital-only bands."

then I just noticed on the sub form: "Digital-only albums should be professional full-length albums (30+ mins)."

it used to be 20+ mins, now the length's "deemphasised" it jumped to 30+ ?

has the news post been superseded? or am I missing sthg?

thanks. (and yes, I just subbed some bands based on the news post only, they're defo not 30+ :D . sorries. )

The 30+ minutes figure from the new subforum is obsolete, that’s now superseded by a general check for overall professionalism and production of digital releases. The news post is the most recent policy on digital releases that we have.

Can I ask where you read that? Was it the first post of a sticky in that subforum, or the rules, or a mod quoting from an old version of the rules? That should be replaced in all compilations of the rules.

it's under the submission notes field in the "add a band" form on the main site... sub form = submission form, sorries for the misunderstanding :/
