I don't even know what it is or even how it can be selected
I just added it as imprint before changing, blame the automatism of the site instead of accusing me of things I didn't do

Well I believe you if you say so, although it never happened to me when adding label/imprint (subentry option was never turned on by default).
I was just surprised to see such huge a** company as a subentry.

edit - o yea if you've added it from avex group page, then it's 100% possible...

Well if it is checked, it removes the label/company/whatever from browse labels page so it's only visible at a subentry level of another label/company (also on labels page).
So let's say you got 'Serious Company' and 'Less Serious Company' as subsidiary - normally you would have the L company listed at two places: under the first company at S part of the list and in L part of the list respectively, but if you choose subentry for L company, it will disappear from L list and it'll be clickable only under S company in the S part of the list.

Useful for regional/country branches of the same company so they don't appear twice (as for Nintendo - France, America, Europe branches are selected only as subentries).

this is the option

I was knowing the option, already saw in the label edit page, just didn't know its use
sorry but I find it a bit confusing, you could use examples?

because I saw that nintendo thing, and I don't see the difference with unchecked option labels

It does work like the described 'hiding' e.g. Mellow Head (for screwing around purposes only lol) with the option unchecked

and checked (no longer there)

but the exact cases when it should be used, I honestly don't know about 'em (maybe not so well documented? ...or I overlooked it). As you see I only know what it does.

Oh, that's cool, it's certainly not your fault I wasn't on IRC so the knowledge stays... in the IRC logs XD

In other words, if SS told you some new details, will you share 'em?

[17:57] <Secret_Squirrel> let me see if i can find an example
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> http://vgmdb.net/org/20
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> doesn't show up in the list on here
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> http://vgmdb.net/db/org.php
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> except like this
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> Apollon Formerly: Apollon Music Industrial Corp.
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> er
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> Apollon Formerly: Apollon Music Industrial Corp.
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> Apollon
[17:58] <Secret_Squirrel> Formerly: Apollon Music Industrial Corp.
[17:59] <child_of_eve> ah you mean formerly/succeded for apollon don't appear?
[17:59] <Secret_Squirrel> yeah, but it only doesn't (i think) because that checkbox is checked
[17:59] <child_of_eve> ah ok

Thanks
This was actually a great reminder that I've done similar thing for Colosseum Schallplatten (used the subentry checkbox... and very likely the only time I used it so far), it was a simple name change... no ownership change/merging/splitting or anything like that...
Thx again P

Still, isn't there some formal guideline about this I'm missing......

the only guideline I know is http://vgmdb.net/forums/showthread.php?t=271
and it's sort of incomplete, and it lacks of things

Yeah, sure I know about that one. Doesn't help answering this specific question. Oh well, nevermind, can't say this is a vital question heh.
