A while ago I added a then-upcoming reissue of Demons & Wizard's Touched by the Crimson King to the Archives, entering the tracklist presented at that time. Now that the CD's actually out it's clear that that tracklist (which is also presented on the CD's back cover) is erroneous; however, when another user correctly reported this, the report was closed without any changes made. Just wanted to make sure what the deal with that was before submitting my own report. Was it lack of provided evidence, or some other site policy?

Site policy is to list the actual tracklist present on the medium and mention the erroneous printed one in the additional notes. Looking at the report, it was probably closed because of insufficient evidence ("Listened to the CD"). While this isn't that big of an edit and I'd probably have taken the user at his word, it's always best to provide some third-party links/sources for confirmation.

I'll take care of it.

What the admins don't like doesn't get added even if it fits criteria. There used to be no Slipknot page for example
