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

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