User insAnum is going through an alphabetical list of bands that start with the word "Black" and changing various little things, usually changing a single word's letter to be either capitalized or lowercase (this isn't consistent either).

Another indication that this is point whoring is going back to the last page of his modification history, you see he focuses on entire albums. But he's changing them track by track. The album Firefrost Arcanum by Vesania has different values for times (ranging from 01:39:29 to 01:39:31).


I'm sorry you consider this point whoring. I realize it may seem like that to some, but I try to avoid giving that impression at all costs. I've decided to go on a huge task of going through common incorrectly capitalized keywords throughout the whole site via advanced search, fixing words such as "At" and "is".

As for going through albums track by track: It might look like that sometimes if you browse through my modification history. It's simply a mistake. Example:

Say I'm searching for songs containing the word "through" (spelled incorrectly with a non-capital "t"), I go to the album that contains the keyword, fix it and quickly go through the rest of the album as well (so that I don't come across the same album later to fix another mistake). Then I'll save the modifications I've made. But as I've saved it, I might realize there's another song title that contains a double space, a typo in the "additional info" section etc. so I go back and fix that as well.

In fact, I have avoided going back to add a missing period or such to the additional text just so that no one would think I'm point whoring. A part of me dies when I have to leave it like that.

Again, this might look fishy in my modification history, but I'd say about 95% of all my modifications are a whole album at a time. I'm not asking for any extra points for noticing further mistakes, and instead of letting them be, going back and fixing them as well to the best of my knowledge. I could say I'm only human, but I've already used that cliche on my profile text, so I'll spare you.

To further defend myself:

I doubt there are many people who actively and almost solely seek this kind of stuff on this site. It doesn't mean there necessarily should be someone doing it by the hundreds every day, but can it really hurt? I like to help people and give something back to the world rather than eat ice cream and watch NBA all day. If we are given a set of rules to follow, and thousands upon thousands of song/album titles are incorrectly spelled by other users, and I'm aware of it, why shouldn't I do something about it?

Points are simply an incentive, but it doesn't mean I'm going through shit blindly just to get them. I'm not getting paid for this in money, and I'm not asking for a pat on my back. I just like to help the community that has helped me so many times before.

EDIT: Incoherent rambling (see, I had to go back again to make something better (twice!))

Fortunately Azmodes had better judgment than I in regards to your modification history. I sort of jumped the gun, though seeing nothing but bands that started with the word "Black" in the brief moment of time that they were the most recent modifications rang the alarm bells and at the time your edits seemed inconsequential. I apologize for that, but at least it's been discussed and you went on here to defend yourself too.

I can understand seeing something else that needed to be changed after just changing something, that has happened to me. I've also been tempted to change lyrics when I'm reading along and the vocalist clearly says something different from a particular word.

isn't/couldn't there be a way to "lock" the album line-ups, like you do with discogs? would simplify things a lot...

Nah, there isn't. Some staffers (including this guy) have suggested numerous times to make album lineups addable only for Veterans and above, in order to eliminate d-bags pointwhoring their way up the ranks, which is what these cases are almost always about. But it seems the Ubergods don't agree. :(

Pacifism_Sucks user needed six entries to fill lyrical theme field, fighting bravely with typos. If it is not intentional doing, definitely he needs Ginkgo biloba extract.

He did the same with at least three more bands:
D.V.C. - 30.3.
Profaner - 28.3.
Cadaveric - 23.2.

I was looking through Pacifism_Sucks' modification history and he seemed to be doing a lot of back and forth with corrections and doing 1-by-1 track naming. They look like they're intentional, although that's just how it looks to me. I was going through this thread just for kicks and saw his name again (page 47) so this behavior of his isn't new.

not whoring by any means, but an edit war is sort of starting on Tiamat's page, with regards to whether Johan Edlund is an active or past member... seeing that he has already announced his departure but will perform with them this summer, it could go on.

while I'm on it, should the band status be changed to "unknown", too?

http://www.metal-archives.com/users/PutridPat

Couple offenses:
1): Re-added at least three aliases to the "real name" field. Almost a zero chance of them legally having those names.
- http://www.metal-archives.com/history/v ... /id/481276
- http://www.metal-archives.com/history/v ... /id/481275
- http://www.metal-archives.com/history/v ... /id/480257 ("Logo's", Azmodes? Haha.)
2): At least six instances of adding artists' pictures/birthdates/countries in two consecutive updates. Definitely not a case of "I forgot". You'll see.

http://www.metal-archives.com/users/jasonkasioptas started well, adding times + lyrics for the warlord comp in one go, but last night he went a little crazy on jp comps... newbie, so most likely unknowing.

Probably not point whoring really, but I don't see where the idea that the two first tracks are one track came from, on this album:

http://www.metal-archives.com/history/v ... /id/403814

Although I haven't bought the album yet, so I can't put it into the stereo to see how many tracks there acutally are, all the sites that sell it and lists the tracks have 8 tracks. That is also the case with both the band's and label's sites:

The user gothic_metal has modified the release dates for several of Deicide's older releases, starting with "Legion". She has removed the dates and has left just the years. Was this an official consensus among the mods? If not, please penalize her for this action.

Here are the albums in question:

http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/De ... egion/1122

http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/De ... _Cross/630

http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/De ... _Light/632

I suggest you take better care of your account, then. If these things continue it'll get banned, regardless of who is to blame in the end.

Ah OK, my mistake!! I thought we were encouraged to do that, sorry! I'll stop, didn't mean to point whore or anything like that! :)

Click on "My profile" then go to "Settings". Is your third box down that says "Remember login? (requires cookies)" checked? If so, uncheck it and it should solve the problem. If it's already not ticked, then I really don't know what to suggest. :P

Can you guys karate chop SF01--sorry, I mean warn SF01 (for the last time, hopefully) to lay off with his bullshit "wrong" release type reports? Seemingly never ending.

I second this. I've tried to be patient with him, but he clearly didn't get the message as it was elaborated to him in the thread he started pertaining to the matter. He just keeps making BS reports, acting like he didn't hear what the staff told him.

Funny thing is he's able to change release types, but doesn't, perhaps out of fear.
