It's a pretty petty suggestion, and I don't know if it's been brought up before but whatever. Okay, so whenever a split is mentioned in the database, all the bands who are on the split that have an Archives entry are listed side-by-side with dashes or whatever. This is on the album page itself:
And then this is what it looks like on a user's collection page:

For splits featuring a non-metal band, though, it only lists the metal bands on the list of participants. Here are two screenshots for splits with non-metal bands, on both the album page and the collection page:

It's a minor aesthetic issue, but I think it's still something that it wouldn't hurt to have. It looks rather weird, at least to me, to have them missing from the displayed lineup like that. Thoughts?

I like the idea, it wouldn't hurt at all. If there are unlisted bands on artist pages, then why shouldn't there be on split albums?
