One thing I forgot to mention is to be careful about partial matches when searching for an artist name.

Neither of those artists are in the database, but searching on them produces bogus results because the name partially matches other artists. The way to avoid this is just to be careful that the match is complete. Also, it pays to take a look at the discography and compare to what you are submitting. A popular anime vocalist probably won't be a performer on a doujin, and an old-school VGM compose probably didn't arrange for a newer doujin.
