Link Crediting artists for specific songs on releases / 2015-06-30 13:47

A recent decision has been made to streamline the manner in which track-specific contributions are added to album lineups. Some of the userbase has adopted a procedure wherein the track titles are spelled out in full:

Bruce Dickinson - Vocals (on "The Trooper," "Flight of Icarus," "Aces High")

It goes without saying that this becomes very messy and difficult to navigate as more artists/credits get added, let alone the erratic nature in which the syntax is interpreted. In order to retain readability and consistency, please add/modify the relevant credits based on their position in the track order. So the aforementioned example would become:

Bruce Dickinson - Vocals (tracks 1, 3, 5)

For credits involving tracks that are not present in the regular (parent) entry of the album like bonus material, additional credits can be added on album child entries under "additional lineup;" follow the above-mentioned protocol for these as well.

Thank you for your comprehension.
