Default Artist name variations

Editors and staff now have access to a new field for artist profiles: Variations of artist names. It's for alternate spellings, abbreviations, acronyms, etc. of the display name (not for aliases that do not resemble the display name). Here's how it's used:

It's mostly for organizational and aesthetic purposes, since name variations will not be listed after album titles in the discography as aliases. Here's a comparison of the discography listing: before and after. Notice that the "Nihon Falcom", etc aliases are still kept for display.

Or just check the artist page itself.

Additionally, a bug with the artist edit history code was fixed in the process (it always registered an edit for the artist type field, whether or not it was actually changed)
