Is the required language English (as Metal-Archives uses the English language) for the neutral information section of an artist page? Reason I'm asking is because I noticed one in Spanish and every single other section has been in English. Once answered I will report the page for correction.

Always English. Any foreign languages should be reported immediately (or if you're a native speaker and have the editorial access, translate it to English if it's useful. :p)

Alright, thanks, Alhadis. That's what I was thinking. Gonna report it in about 30 seconds...

Also, if you have the necessary rank, you can just delete any non-English info outright. Or you can post about it here for translation requests, if you want.

English-only also applies to cities/regions/etc... in the location field, by the way. Always use the English exonym, not the endonym. It's "Havana", not "La Habana". "Lower Saxony", not "Niedersachsen". "Quebec", not "Québec". I've been working on cleaning up inconsistencies there, so just an FYI. Feel free to report/correct any cases you encounter.

Ummmm what? I always write Québec...

(But to the OP: yes, you can delete non-English bios and information outright, it's not acceptable in any way.)

Technically that's the French spelling.

Well, Morrigan, it looks like Azmodes is going to look at all your submissions and corrections and change them. I'm about 1/4th of the way to Veteran status, so until then I'll report any non-English information that I find.

I hate the non-accented versions... but sigh, whatever.
