I saw this dude flagging a report (https://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/624347) to Caliban's release Memoirs and in a first moment I just added the disc titles on the "Additional notes" tab. Later on I realized that the release is actually a boxed set, not a compilation.

Source: https://www.impericon.com/de/caliban-me ... x-set.html

So, the thing is: there's this release by Caliban, which is a boxed set: https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/C ... %29/688033

How could I fix this entry and add only the disc titles (format of a boxed set, with a "Discs" tab instead of a "Songs" tab), instead of a compilation entry?

For instance:

Boxed set entry: https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/B ... rks/667107

I'm not sure about how should I fix it and I wanna do it properly, so should I add the boxed set entry and flag the compilation one to be deleted? Or I just change the type of the release for "boxed set" and add the discs, deleting the current tracklist?

Thanks in advance!

^ I've taken care of it.

To fix this, delete all of the CDs besides one (with the release still set as a compilation). Once you do that, change the release to a boxed set and delete all the extra songs that were left on the one CD you didn't delete. Then just change the tittles of the tracks and add the track information into the disc notes. This can all be done in one save btw.

Oh, ok!

Got it, thanks man :)

EDIT:

Just a quick question then: if the albums released in the boxed set are pretty much the same as the original ones (same songs), isn't it kind of redundant to add the same tracklist again for the boxed set release?

I mean if the same album is being released again with exactly the same tracklist, isn't it obvious that the tracklist is that of the original release, i.e. one should check the link for the original release for tracklist info?

Just reposting the question from my previous post:

It is redundant, though having the info there is definitely useful considering album tracklists vary at times.

Forger (NWOBHM)

Does anyone have a ReverbNation account? If so, could you send a message to this artist asking whose nickname was "Steve Animal" and whose was "Tobe Roxx"?
https://www.reverbnation.com/geoffmega

I've added the line-up according to this:
https://www.discogs.com/release/5890057 ... ght/images
However, I had to change the roles of both musicians mentioned above. Those were incorrect.

Here's the issue, though. It's not unlikely that the roles were correct but the nicknames assigned to both artists weren't. It just makes more sense for Steve Brooks to be Steve Animal, if you know what I mean.

Hi,

Is it appropriated to add the country's name in the version desc. if that version produced exclusively for that country? This user seems to keep deleting the country's name on the version desc. Go to page 8 of his modification history. And this is some of them. https://imgur.com/a/HCuJp

Next time wait until the day of release before you submit a band to the queue.

Save for Japanese releases, don't add the country to the VD unless absolutely necessary (i.e. there are no other major differences).

I'd file a report if the discography weren't locked.
Not a question, and not an urgent matter... just a bit of work for someone who has time on their hands:
https://www.discogs.com/master/view/569178 (2-album compilation to add + other versions)
