If you'd like, you could edit your artist page. I think we still need your birthplace and a profile image.

The birthplace is the same as my current location, and I'll see if I can find a good picture tonight.

I tried using it just now, but it apparently didn't work.

What message is it giving you?

I just tried it out on my account, and on an account with staff privilege, and both worked. There was an issue with unlinking (by entering 0) where the page isn't refreshed correctly, and it still shows a linkup, so I fixed that.

I seemingly had the opposite issue. When editing 8-Bit Instrumental's artist profile, it showed no forum linkup. And yesterday, after trying to do a linkup and hitting submit, it merely refreshed the artist edit page (without the redirecting.../success page) and still had no linkup, yet the forum profile displays the linkup just fine. Perhaps the linkup was already in place before I tried doing it, and I just didn't notice, but that doesn't explain why it says there's no forum account linked to the artist on the Edit page. I'm leaving it as is just in case that may help with troubleshooting.

I did try another linkup successfully just now though!

I've fixed this problem. It was occuring because 8-bit-instrumental is actually a group, and not a person, so the logic was a bit different.

So guys, I've been kind of putting together a remix album of sorts for a few weeks now, and was just wondering, what exactly does it take to be listed in vgmdb?
Does it need to be notable, are covers required for digital only fan albums? Something else maybe?

Well, it's all kind of fuzzy. There are plenty of free digital-release remix albums in the database, and yours would probably be similar to those, so there's already a precedent. I'd say if you've got some hesitation about putting up an entry, then run it by Liontamer and see what he thinks.
