this split shouldn't be here should it?

and sorry if this has been asked recently but are there going to be any changes on how splits are added to the database?

There doesn't need to be a change so long as people are smart enough to realise that if Band A and Band B get together to make a split, a page should be created for Band A and Band B, and not just putting the release on either of the band's existing artist pages

Would it be possible to change the name of the tag "grind" to "grindcore"? Grindcore is the actual term, grind is just a shortening used for "micro-genres" and to spell it quicker.

Not a big deal but I thought it was at least worth noting.

I don't know if more genres will be proposed in the future, but it's not possible (at least for me) to go in and edit the names of the tags themselves -- all I can do, basically, is wipe tags on bands.

tried to add this to the already existing page and it put it on a whole new page with the wrong release date, possibly because of the ampersand i think. it will be released january 24th of this month. merge and thanks.

Not yet, and I'm still not sure if this is a new thing that's buggy or an actual permanent fixture... it seems like you have to go to the band or album pages to rate as options.

We're going to have our first promotion cycle of the year by month's end (we typically have two over the year). There's a pretty informal application process that changes slightly from year-to-year, but we'll be sure to announce it on the review site in the coming days.

As it pertains to contributors moving to staff, there've already been preliminary discussions as to who's being added, and it'll more or less depend on whether or not these folks actually submit an application, even if it consists solely of 'lol butts'.

Hi, I decided to serve my ban rather than make an alt, because that would undermine the whole point of me being 'innocent' but I'd like to ask why I was banned.
I got banned for re-posting one of my own posts that contained a list of accounts I genuinely thought were troll-rating accounts. And I can back this up with the fact that most of the accounts had rated the same several albums by each band with a 5.0 or 1.0 on the same day.
I realise nothing was done last time I posted it but it was annoying me how I think some of the ratings had actually brought down the average of some of Beardfish albums that were 1.0'd (five 1s in a row on the same day on Mammoth? Pretty sure it used to be a 3.9 avg).
Maybe I was being annoying by reposting, but was it really worthy of a ban? After all, I wasn't doing it for any reason that would benefit me or be detrimental to others.
Not only that, but apparently next time I'm banned on the forums, it's forever. Isn't that a little extreme? I mean, the only other thing I've ever done wrong on this site is tag the Jonas Brothers as 'melodic death metal'.

I'm unbanned on the forums now, but I did get banned on the review site too (that was for posting a list, which was not inflammatory, but simply asked the question of whether I deserved to be banned and if "Sputnik was corrupt").
Can I also ask when my unban date on the review site is, because I've got a review for the new Ethereal Riffian LP (brilliant album) to post.

As serious as syphilis.

Of course, I would encourage people who are risk-averse to submit a more complete application.

it did the same thing again. is there a site bug i dont know about? sorry but i figured since it wasnt up there you just wanted it manually entered again. if you can just put this on the bohren page, its already streaming so people can actually rate it

my bad if i missed something and fucked it up again. thanks.

Artists with ampersands and certain non-alphanumerics do it. It's not your fault.

Hey Dev, even if that review was a chance of being featured, would you have denied because he wrote "eligeable?"

A few months ago when I logged in I was banned for some reason - I thought I'd just wait until I was unbanned but it's been a while and I'm still banned so I'm just wondering how long is this ban?

Read the two comments from user avantyou in:

http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/60465/Tad-Morose-Revenant/

and

http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=138249

I think he/she is trolling (especially in the first link), I could be wrong though.

All bans are for forever until people come back to inquire. From there, we assign a completely arbitrary number based on a dartboard, the Fibonacci sequence, strobe lights, and rock songs that are at least 125 bpm.

In the past, we've used "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by The Darkness, although I've been told that mx prefers "Burn it to the Ground" by Nickelback.

Your ban is lifted, by the way. Hooray!
