I don't know why ordoad feels that blanking all the info from releases is helpful, but please let him know it's not.

Checked his modification history, but he seems to do valid edits, so might've been a duplicate he merged with another version that then got deleted. I dunno.

I actually saw that report before it got deleted; a visitor was confused about a child entry that was basically totally devoid of any kind of information (no release date/format/label, empty tracklist, that sort of thing). Taking a look at the mod history, it looked like one of those child entries that was originally duped by accident by a newbie. Later, ordoad probably came across it, noticed it was a dupe himself and then proceeded to erase all info on said entry.

I've seen him do this at least once before, so he probably just doesn't know that dupes can be reported for deletion. So probably just a friendly notice is in order?

Yes, these were duplicates, double clicks when it was a problem with internet connection.
How do I submit albums for deletion?

https://www.metal-archives.com/users/chupavy guesswork lineup on the Leecher album. I know the band, that's not the recording lineup. Dávid Benei barely just joined.

What is the official line-up? Unless I have proof that his line-up is bullshit, I can't warn him.

Off-topic: 4 cello players?? I'm seeing this band live supporting another symphonic metal band in April, looking forward to it even more with the addition of a 4th cello player...

well, until i/you have the booklet, the proof is that he only added a very partial lineup, and that Dávid Benei joined this year, while the album was recorded last year, for which you can find plenty of posts on their fb, accompanied by photos which tell you who was involved... or you can message them.

off topic: lol. curb your enthusiasm :) 3 cello players, the 4th lives in hawaii for nearly a decade now and has not played with them since they recorded their debut... he's just the founder, and until now the main composer as well, so they can't sack him.

I will either take a look at the posts or message the band or both when I wake up later.

Dying_Hope added a not-to-be-confused note to Naglfar (SWE/NOR). Whether it's a one-off thing or a start, I don't know. So, a note won't hurt telling him/her it's not the right thing to do.

https://www.metal-archives.com/users/iamnothing adds lyrical themes, some of which appear roughly legit with a quick scan, but others are not so convincing... Switchblade have 7 albums and all their lyrics are about the apocalypse? O_o

Lyrical themes are a massive pain to police. With the exception of Switchblade, most of them appear perfectly valid, though many of the bands have no added lyrics so I hope he isn't guessing based on the song titles. I could send a friendly notice... but I can't confirm any wrongdoing at this moment.

lyrical themes is also my hobby, as I like reading and thinking about lyrics, even for bands/albums I don't like... and actually one of my earliest scraps with the mod police was over my lyrical themes additions, but I explained to the mod how I came up with with the themes I had added and that sufficed. if he can do the same, then there's no wrongdoing :)

https://www.metal-archives.com/users/Death_Vomit adds/moves misc lineup info to the notes (Revelation, Mindblizz). he also adds it one line at a time, like on the Katalysator releases, which seems to be getting him a few too many points...

Perhaps not a point whoring. User ordoad seems to prefer actual photo / promo flyers over "true cover arts". For example, he changed the cover art of Eneferens - The Bleakness of Our Constant
from
Spoiler: show

to
Spoiler: show
Image

And when he adds a new version, he tends to add the flyer image, like this album.

Pretty useless stuff by Salpius.

Going alphabetically to add a semi-colon here and a period there. Looks really ugly to me, too, to be honest. It's a list of releases, not a poem.

can smn ask https://www.metal-archives.com/users/metaldude19 where he gets his lineups from? it seems like he's just adding the current lineup... the giveaway being the bass role on NW's Emppu

edit: it appears I reported him last summer as well, on the same...

tornado0fnachos adding guesswork lineups based on this report. Appears he just went and added current line up to the album instead of based on credits.

GuardAwakening has decided to re-edit for first time, or second time the note that I re-edited for second time in November in the additional notes of CBT and 87 other bands, when I decided to assign myself the work that the mods were going to do regarding the notes based on which album x band was accepted in September, with the permission and authorization of the same mods in that moment, obviously:

His change was literally just the addition of "primarily", which honestly makes it sound better...

Yes, that's right, but the re-edits like this should only be done by a mod, not even by me or by another regular user, that's the reason why I honestly, practically and respectfully did this.

It was originally set to "primarily" by a mod and this also accurately reflects the decision process back then. So it's fine, no need to make a big deal out of it.

Can we have "Disputed" available for mods only? Same as "Unknown" is for location for example.

The status is still set to "Disputed", an issue which I believe had been resolved already (after months and months). They're active again, aren't they? If the user knew they weren't, he could've at least filed a report. Is this not akin to vandalism?

Where was the issue resolved? I don't know anything about this band, but if it is a confusing case then perhaps the best thing to do is add a moderation warning asking users not to modify the activity status. From an outside perspective it doesn't look like vandalism, rather just an honest mistake.

TSIR had contacted Terry Butler and set the status to "split-up".
https://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/586241
- The report had been resolved here.

SoTLB set the status back to "active" on February 1, 2019.
https://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/665627
- If there were doubts here as to whether the line-up was legit, I'm sure the status would've been set to "Disputed" again there and then.
________________

However, it seems that Necrodictator had created a bit of a mess on November 16, 2018, by changing the status to "Changed name" and adding two activity periods (as Massacre X) and (as Gods of Death).
- This should've been addressed back then.
