  • Added a new subformat field for certain media types.
    CD: Mini CD, CD-R
    Vinyl and Flexi Disc: Size and RPM
  • Added a new "A-Side Tracks" field for Vinyl, Cassette and Flexi Disc.
    Setting this to a number, for example 5, will automatically show the sides separation in the tracklist. This info should be removed from the album notes.
    This data is not inherited from child albums, so it will be possible to have CD reprints of Vinyls without having the side info in the CD entry.
  • Disc headers in tracklist now also show the media format and catalog. They are hidden if they're all the same, and the same as the album catalog.
  • Copy Protection field for media is now hidden for formats other than CD and DVD.
  • Artist name conflicts in album "Manage Artists" now also show the amount of works for that particular role. The list is also sorted based on that amount.
  • Tweaked simple search header alignment.

  • New organization -> album link system.
    Some new roles have been added for organizations to help us represent organizations associated with releases more extensively, and also to try any make things more consistent between Japanese record companies.
    The feature is currently staff-only while we go through most entries, it will be open to all Trusted Editors after that's done.
    A new thread will be posted in the "Guides and FAQs" forum with the new guidelines for using the field.
  • Added hyperlinks for "Added/Modified by" usernames in most pages.
  • Fixed "Just Added" and "Upcoming Albums" pages when using filters.

  • Added subtracks, examples: https://vgmdb.net/album/40468 https://vgmdb.net/album/53108
    These can be added by trusted editors and above by clicking the arrow to the right of tracks in the "Edit Tracklist" menu.
    While adding them, you can click the icon on the left to remove one if you added too many, but once the changes are submitted you will not be able to remove the tracks.
    Once they are added, anyone can edit them and they go through the usual modqueue.
    Please note that these should be added only when the track separation is presented in the album itself, like in the two examples above. If you're not sure about an album you can ask in the #edits channel on Discord.
    The CDDB lookup will ignore these tracks while looking for album matches.
  • Trusted editors and above will now be able to add tracks at the end of a disc, without having to resubmit the tracklist.
    This can be done by clicking "Add New Track" at the bottom of a disc in the "Edit Tracklist" menu.
    Like with subtracks, you can click the icon on the left to remove one if you added too many, but once the changes are submitted you will not be able to remove the tracks.
  • Added mouse highlighting to tracklists.
  • Non-standard spaces will now automatically be replaced with normal spaces when submitting or editing tracklists.
  • Removed Staff Notes from albums.
  • Fixed an issue with the organization link tool.

  • The Edit Tracklist box now properly handles existing and new subtracks by indenting them.
  • Added a new "Transfer title, length and subtracks" option for trusted editor+ to automatically create new subtracks in the tracklist when pasting indented subtracks in the box.
    Subtracks can be indented with spaces or tabs.
    Example: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachmen.../subtracks.gif
  • All non-standard spaces are now replaced with normal spaces when using the Edit Tracklist box, making it possible to paste tracklists separated by tabs (for example from yodobashi).
  • The album/artist/product/organization link in discussion threads will now appear in the first post of every page instead of just in the first one.
  • Added disambiguation to Browse Products and Browse Organizations pages.
  • Fixed several issues with subtrack times and multiple tracklists.
  • Fixed an issue with adding new tracks when the last track had a subtrack.
