Default Proposal regarding pre-releases

For the special case of pre-releases with their own special catalogue number and/or packaging, we add them as a "reprint" of the parent album. The album display page does a comparison of the release dates (it already does this to determine "alternate printings") and if it's release prior, it changes the display to "pre-release of".

Also, I propose that "Add Reprint" be changed to "Add Child Album", since it's now used for more than just reprints (e.g. bootlegs, alternate printings).

These both seem pretty reasonable to me, so I say "yes."

I think those sound like sound ideas as well.

Count me as agreement #4! Good thinking.

Looks like everyone is in agreement, so I'll work on this tonight. I think there are a couple of albums from C73 that had pre-releases.

This is implemented now.

There aren't any albums currently that qualify as pre-releases, but there will be soon. If you need a parent and child album reversed, just post here or contact someone on staff.

I'd like to get this pre-release ("public beta") made a child of the final release here. Thanks!

Okay, I hooked them up. A couple of things:

- to get the pre-release designation to work, you'll need to enter a real date on the release album, since 2001 is counted as Jan 1 2001 when sorting dates.

- You'll have to add the tracklist to the parent album, since they don't display "up" the tree.
