Dear mods, is there a specified definition for "sampler" release, because there are many singles, compilations and EP, which are just promo samplers from then-forthcoming album, which are listed here, but I noticed that in "add release" formula it says "no samplers".

So, my question is, is purge required for some releases?

Well, handle with care, but generally, promo samplers that weren't available to the public (those that were used for radio play, reviews etc) are to be deleted.

If they were freebies, like in store or came with a magazine or order, they are considered publicly available and should be kept.

OK, so I think I won't interfere with samlper EPs and compilations.
