Please remove the "rock" tag from these bands: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/The-Grand-Astoria/24380/#
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Monkey3/13581/
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Amplifier/1494/
They are anything but just "rock" which would indicate fairly mellow songs with simple structures. Barely any of the songs here are under 5 minutes, few have verse/chorus structures, and they get ridiculously heavy.

We're not removing tags unless they're blatantly wrong (e.g. black metal for the JoBros), especially when the user making the requests is a problem user. It's not like you've ever abused the tagging system, right?

might even be better to change the other have mercy to be the 'have mercy (md)' page since it doesn't seem very active at all, and have the one that is currently 'have mercy (md)' just become 'have mercy', if possible.

it's also kind of funny that both have mercy's are from baltimore... wonder how that happened

It's funny how these two guys spend all there energy 1'ing all my albums. Like they've been doing it for about a years time now everytime I have a new release. I hate to keep bothering the meds but you guys may want to nip these guys in the butt. Clearly the same person with tons of alts or simply two different trolls.

Yo, meds. I don't want to seem like a dick but for how long am I banned? I just want to know since if I'm perma-banned then it would be silly for me to keep logging in each day and see if I'm still banned or not.

Can you remove the hip-hop tag here:

http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Letlive./19829/

Also, I noticed that Chance The Rapper's Acid Rap isn't in the hip-hop charts for this year, which I suppose is because it's in the database as a compilation (it's a mixtape). But then on the other hand, Jonwayne's Cassette 3 mixtape was entered as an album, so it does show up on the charts.

Is there any rule on how mixtapes should be entered into the DB? Personally, I think it would be nice if they could show up in the charts because in hip-hop mixtapes can be some of the biggest releases of the year, and they aren't compilations of old material or anything like that. Thanks!

Consider featuring this?
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=134428


There's a lot of good stuff here that I feel deserves to get more recognition, so it'd be cool if its featured so that people can find them

Are the 0.1 ratings going to be unveiled for common users at some point in time? Or is it planned to stay only as a staff perk?

It was going to happen, but users kinda ruined it when they did the whole 4.99999999^28 ratings thing. On one hand, it helped mx fix the code to prevent abuses like that happening again; on the other, it solidified the notion that he isn't going to enable certain perks because others ruin the fun. Delay of gratification, children.

@ Jom, would allowing that perk to all users really open the site up to any more possible abuse than it currently is now?

There really isn't a lot of abuse going on the site, I don't think (excepting the obvious with the lists, but there doesn't seem to be any movement in rectifying the problem at this point, so there's not much we can do about it, unfortunately -- maybe in a few months it'll be considered).

I personally add them as compilations, only to create a degree of separation between them and fully-fledged albums. Though, a mixtape tag could certainly go a long way
