Hi, I just loaded Odax's 2nd album (the king is dead) and it looks like I may have loaded it against the rejected band entry. Apparently I must have done a duplicate entry, and there remains 2 versions of the Odax band entry I think. Can someone please help to merge the two? Thank you.

I'm confused, there are no duplicate album entries anywhere to be found on the Odax page? :???:

He has submitted the band , although the Odax page already exists in the database:
https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Odax/3540435000
There are currently two more such duplicates in the queue and I hope you don't mind me listing them here, since I have reported the first one of them several weeks ago and there was stillno reaction, so please excuse me for doing so

Fixed

as for the other two, Witcher, There's no reason to a) report them (unless the name is spelled incorrectly in the duplicate), because we get a fancy orange warning telling us a band with that name/from that country is present in the database and b) bump them here as we'll get to them when we get to them. There's also c) you flag that many pointless reports on band submissions that no one even wants to check the reports in the first place.

For the record, The band Disillusi'on is listed in the dataase with an umlat, so the entries are not identitical. Chech:
https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Di ... 3540473047
b( Of course, I can't see the colur difference thanks, to my handicap, thanks for telling me.
c(( I tri only to report info that's missing, be it links to official pags, missing samples or links to full albums instead of short samples at Itunes/Amazon. IIf it's worthelss, it's entirely in the eye of the beholder.Of course, I can't see, what iis written in the filed strictly for moderators. s

That's fine to report then

Only mods can see that box. That's why I told you, we usually see when duplicates exist, be it in the queue or already on the site :)

There's hardly anything in the reports that hasn't already been provided by the submitter. Maybe 1% of the time there's a submitter that didn't add anything to the sub notes, but even then he could just resubmit with the needed info.
