Judging by what his profile now says and his most recent line-up addition, he is a troll. He should probably be tossed before he adds more bullshit, imo.

hardcoremetalman69 is a prolific troll and vandal. He takes great pleasure linking to gay pornsites on band and artist pages.

It's 5 months late, but someone should probably let this user know not to use his page for promotion.

I've started this conversation a couple of months ago, now I see 0th is doing the same wrong things :durr:
Example
Album was released not only via bandcamp, but at least via Amazon too...

I know it's 4 years old, but still...

The release "Necrotic Bleeding" was added to the Akeldama page by user A11HAV3FA113N, but the tracklist seems highly dubious.

I don't have a complete tracklist for that demo (hence why I didn't added it when I submitted the band), but I have 2 mp3s ("Kadaverik Dekomposition" and "NDE (aka Grim Torture)") from that demo that were downloaded from mp3.com around december 2002.

Maybe a mod could contact the user?

This is merely suspicion, but it seems as if user _JT_ is using sock puppets to upvote similar bands. I noticed it with this band especially: 矢島舞依
The suspected sock puppet accounts are _Jfs_, _juant_ and _k999_ - all of which have noticeable username patterns and zero points. I often check this band for updates, and this sudden burst of votes is questionable. It would be great if someone looked into this.

IvanMagoo is adding song lengths one by one (see this and this). Maybe he should be schooled.

IPs match, emails are similar and in one case almost identical. Will ban.

Hi,

The user Roderick Sabbath Terror submitted six bands in the course of 16 minutes this morning. The bands are Morbid Beauty, Christian Death, A Cura, Paranoia Apocaliptica, Herdeiros da Cidade, and Joe Strummer Band. All of these bands are located in the same town in Brazil. A couple of the bands have made up genre names, such as "Old Black Metal" and "Splater Unholy Metal." A majority of the bands all have the same photo, a badly lighted image of a guy holding a club. Only two of the bands have anything entered in their discography, and the most is only 03:59 in length. All of the bands have an "Unknown" status, and two of them are supposedly punk, therefore not suitable for this site. Anyone care to look into this?

They were rejected, obviously. That would never make it on the site, and the band queue is regularly inundated with such crap, so don't fret over it.

Don't know if this is worth reporting or not. The user Psyche_Dome has made zero contributions to the site but spends all his time on the forum whining about the reviews other people write. He PM'd me telling me that my review was wrong and went on a thread to complain about me.

Just to add: I believe this thread is for reports concering the main site only, not forum misusage. It's a lot easier to monitor forum posts than every user's modification history, so if mods thought action was necessary, it would (hopefully) have been taken by now. Even if you do see a post clearly in violation of forum rules, there is a report button next to every post. I have no idea how frequently it's used, or if mods usually see before checking post reports.

Good to know. Quick heads up: I've been adding a lot of missing info on recently added bands lately, and it has caused a surge in points for me. I believe I am following all the rules, though, making sure to add all the lyrics for an album in one go, etc. Please PM me if there's any concern.

As long as you follow the rules, you should be fine. BTW, when adding a artist with multiple roles (ex: "Mixing, Mastering") make sure to capitalize the first word of each role.

Yes, I'm sure someone with complete access to site edits would go that far out of their way to accrue three points...

Yeah, because it's simply impossible that a mod could make an honest mistake. Must be those juicy, juicy points that mean fuck-all to staffers. And he would've gotten away with it too, if not for that darn Shadechaser!

Both have similar names, are both males, age 26, and seem to be upvoting the same bands? (See Batushka on this page)

That's just the formatting. As you can see from the update history, they were all updated within one second of each other, not one by one. Seems alright to me.

(Sorry for the wrong thread, maybe)

Please explain me if one should add band members to "other stuff" section in case they participate in producing, mixing or songwriting?
Or should we write "producing, mixing, songwriting" to the additional fields of "band members" section along with, say, vocals and guitars?
How important is it, at least?

If a band member does the songwriting and lyrics, that goes in the main tab. If not a band member, other staff. Producer, mixing, mastering, etc. go in other staff.

Hmm. I was always considering all other than performing music to other staff, even band members.
Got it, thanks.

Just bringing your attention to this thread, which was probably the most appropriate for your question: https://www.metal-archives.com/board/vi ... 17&t=94071

You can find it in site-related tasks.

hmm is there a consensus though?
Many artists have like misc. roles listed on albums they played on.
There is even the option to select band members in the misc staff.
For example some people who I just recently came across:
https://www.metal-archives.com/artists/ ... diner/3012
https://www.metal-archives.com/artists/ ... ugas/50888
I don't mean to be rude but I just see some mixed ways of editing and I am guilty of it was well I believe.
Also I see that it is not constant otherwise Chuck should have way more misc staff of course

You must have misunderstood my post. Mixing, mastering, etc. always go in other staff, band member or not. Lyrics and songwriting only go in main if the person who wrote them was a band member on the album.
