Default Question about "Products Represented" category

I'm aware that this is used to signify where the music is from on an OST, but what about an arranged CD? If it doesn't include music from any specific version of a game, should it be left as "Other"? Or only the original version? Or do we include all of the ports?

I ask because I've seen examples of all three used for arranged CDs on this site. There's no consistency. I'd like to fix them, but don't know how to go about it.

Are you talking about Products or Platforms?

For arranged versions, I usually put all versions of the game that:
  1. included the music represented on the album
  2. existed at the time of the album's release

So, if an album comes out in 2000, it is fine to list the SNES and N64 versions, but not the Xbox versions.

"Other" is really only meant for obscure platforms that aren't in the list.

I meant "platforms". Thanks for the clarification.
