Hei I have been wondering, when certian bands have been added. And there is little information about a band, and there are no links added. I have done searches on bands and cannot find anything about said band Unorthodox Badger, to use an example. It leaves me asking how did the person who added band get it passed by the archives?
Would it be possible to have the music platform, or social media site. To show how band had been discovered, I know some bands are obscure and have very little detail on who they are. Just a thought. We thank you! :)

Apologies, I did'nt want to use a real band name. To put my point across, It was just an example a little clumisly expressed on my part. :) Thank you.

Because they provided sufficient proof of existence/distribution. There is a whole other interface that only mods can view and have discussions regarding the band before it is accepted, and there is no reason for this to be public.

Is there an actual real example of this that you were asking about? Except for obscure bands, there's usually some info. A lot of users don't put the links in the right place and therefore when we accept a band, might not realize that all the links we just looked at aren't in the profile for the public. We can go back into the mod section and pull them out if they exist and add them.

^^ Diamhea thank you for explaining how the process works, with bands being accepted. :)
TheUnrelentingAttack, not any specific band in particular. Moreover a general observation, when looking at band in the archives. Thanks for your help! :)
