Default Question and suggestion about new roles

1) How to make studio name for artist page
- If a name has 株式会社/(株) in Japanese credits, should we include Inc./LTD./Co./Co., Ltd... when turning the name?
- For example if both ONKIO HAUS Inc. and ONKIO HAUS are existing in English credits which is proper as a display name?
- If a studio group has multiple branches or sub-studios with distinct names like prime studios, how to make them? Apparently they have prime sound studio form, prime sound studio, prime sound studio daikanyama, avex studio azabu, form THE MASTER. Should we make every artist page?

2) More roles
How about adding these roles?
- Sound Designer
- Editor (Music Editor/Sound Editor)
- Recording Director
- Recording Producer
- Remixer (We now put remixers in the Arranger field.)

Display name should generally match the logo.

These should be separated by location. Example: VICTOR STUDIO (main) / VICTOR AOYAMA STUDIO (alias)

Adding more roles is always possible but we probably shouldn't add too many at once. We don't want to create too much of a workload for editors/staff. Let's get caught up on the current ones first.

Note that different entries should only be different locations (different address). For example Studio 1, Studio 2, Studio 3 are just rooms at KING SEKIGUCHIDAI STUDIO so they should not have their own entry.

YK STUDIO is a different location so it should have it's own entry: http://cnt.kingrecords.co.jp/studio/access/

There are a few exceptions like FLAIR MASTERING WORKS because it has it's own engineers, branding and logo despite being located inside the VICTOR STUDIO building. Generally a separate entry should only be created for a different location (different address).
