Hey guys, Joypad Records is re-releasing this album officially, with a UPC and everything.

What's the definite absolute rule on VGMdb for re-releases (especially for doujin/indie soundtracks that are later released officially under a label):
1. we update the old entry to match new information
2. we create a new album with the same information

Thanks!

if the contents is the same, so add as a child album (of the original album -> edit)

Hm, that doesn't make sense. The re-release stands on its own.

If the tracklist is the same, you can add Joypad release as a reprint considering the big time gap (add child album option). If it's not, submit it regularly but don't change original entry.

That sounds good. How do I specify reprints?

The usual edit menu of this album but instead of using 'edit album info' you choose 'add a child album'.
