The reason it's not disabled is because some songs have accompanying "lyrics" in the liner notes despite being instrumental. "Já je proto proti" by !T.O.O.H.! is a good example.

Forgive me if this has been brought up before, but has any thought been given to an alternative naming of the status "Split up" for solo projects? As it stands, it kinda sounds like they've disemboweled themselves, which is quite metal, but nonetheless... probably not the best way of putting it.

Defunct and disbanded were suggested before.

I'd love to be able to search by release date. Albums released on 7 November 1978... etc.

The advanced search function allows you to search for a particular month and year, and it should be relatively easy to sift through the list for a particular day.
Not much listed for Nov. 1978.

The "Years active" bug: I can't remove the "2016" in "Years active" on this page: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Eu ... 3540411937
I think the problem is that the numbers of "Formed in (year)" and "Years active" are different, check the modification history (user UltimateInsanity): https://www.metal-archives.com/history/ ... ilter/data.
Edit: Thanks, Antioch. I've been so stupid lately. :-P

Removed. It can't be removed by removing the year then saving. You need to press the bin button on the right, Zeroth.
EDIT: @0th: We all have our off days. Yours are definitely fewer than mine. :)

I know it's only a minor issue, but it's weird. How did my report on a bandpage get flagged as requiring moderator attention when there's no indication of anyone pressing the button? I never pressed, and the option is still there. Screenshot.

On this same subject, is there likely ever to be a way to ''untag'' such reports, in case of errors? I've seen a few in my time here.

In the gender field for new artists, could the "unknown/other" option be split so that non-binary/genderqueer musicians can be properly accounted for? I'm hoping to suggest a change to an artist's profile, and that really doesn't sit right. Like, I know for certain what their gender identity is - it just isn't male or female.

Re-read this, and felt I needed to clarify my request. Instead of "unknown/other" being one option, I felt it should be two.
"unknown" for when you properly don't know their gender, and
"other" for when you do, but that gender is not male or female

Increasing social acceptance of those who don't identify as either male or female has led to more people being comfortable identifying that way in one form or another. Changing the gender field to how I've suggested above (which isn't perfect, but is a step-up from where it is presently) would assist the metal archives to better capture how this is reflected by artists working in the area of metal music.

Not sure if this is the right place to do this, but I want to report a bug.
As of this morning, I was receiving an error when trying to do an album search. The error reads:

"DataTables warning (table id = 'searchResultsAlbum'): DataTables warning: JSON data from server could not be parsed. This is caused by a JSON formatting error."

Is this a client-side or server-side issue?

If needed, I can post a screenshot later.

EDIT: Same things happens with the band page. Checking the song search as well.

EDIT 2: Same thing there as well.

Some server issue, apparently. HB is working on it.

@perzine: I would be on board with splitting it.

That's very encouraging to hear - thank you. I look forward to seeing this change come through.
