I will not spam the board commenting all the entries made recently but i'll take this one as an example:

I don't think Streaming does count as a release, so this kind of soundtracks only listenable are not valid.
Plus an official release was made.

Also your entries are often lacking publishers & product name.. etc..

If a soundtrack is available somewhere purely for streaming alongside a physical/download release, then I usually just add that as an "Available at" link with a note that it's streaming only, like here: http://vgmdb.net/album/30259. This is kind of interesting because Dikiciyan put up a bonus, streaming-only track, though.

I'd be okay with getting rid of this and linking to the streaming player on the iTunes release. (The DJ mix is already mentioned in the notes there.) Lots of composers post this kind of streaming stuff on their sites as demos.

I would support this idea too. I don't think we want to catalog ever stream source as an album entry, since they aren't really guaranteed to be permanent.
