Default how to link the albums, the labels and the composers between them ?

Hello,
recently, I submitted some albums but there is a thing I don't understand, why some names are not directly linked to their profile, I know they are in the database but it appears in white, I wonder how to make them blue and link the artists, the label and the albums between them.
if someone can reply me,
thanks.

There's a link called "Manage Artists" in the Edit dropdown but you might not have access to it. A Trusted Editor or higher might have to do it for you.

Thank you.

Please link the group
http://vgmdb.net/artist/11632
with
http://vgmdb.net/album/19889

http://vgmdb.net/album/28607

There could be more, but this would be enough.

Actually, this is the reason I created a profile. Imagine my surprise that ordinary users can't link artists to releases! However, I read through those threads, and I completely understand the reasoning.

For that reason, whenever I find missing links, I'll just post them here. I'll leave verification up to the trusted editors and staff. :)

Please link:

Artist: http://vgmdb.net/artist/2860
Album: http://vgmdb.net/album/15479

Artist: http://vgmdb.net/artist/7744
Album: http://vgmdb.net/album/11036 (and its other reprintings, of course)
I'm pretty sure Yu Togiwa and Yuu Togiwa are the same person with different romanizations.


And a few questions from a newbie:
  1. Just so I know in the future, is double posting frowned upon in this forum? I'm asking just in case I find more missing entries if I'm still the last person to post in this thread. Some time may pass, and editing my post later on may go unnoticed by staff since edits don't bump threads in the message list....
  2. In cases of hybrid artists listed in credits (two or more artists listed as one entry, e.g. "Sota Fujimori feat.Nagisa" from this album), should I report it anyway so that the individuals can be linked? From this example, Sota Fujimora and nagisa have their own artist pages. This type of entry is common in remixes, mashups, and dancemania albums. So if linked, it would look like "Sota Fujimori feat.Nagisa" (still preserving the formatting of the person who submitted the album). If this is the case, I have a LOT of link requests I can be submitting! :D
  3. In the case of related albums with no artists listed, is it safe to list artists from inference? For example, jubeat ripples APPEND has extended versions of songs featured on jubeat ripples ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK, so couldn't the latter album's artists just be copied over?

Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work!

Hey Seraphicgate

Thanks for checking those albums. I've linked up the Yu/Yuu Togiwa album (not sure how I missed that one.) I haven't done anything with th Jubeat album yet. I think the credits need some work (separating out the composers from the vocalists and filling all the fields) before anyone links it. I will probably take a look at it soon.

For your questions.

1. Double posting is allowed here.
2. We don't usually put "feat" in any of the artists fields. It's just a comma separated list, or a parenthetical unit. I think Nagisa needs moved to the performer field for this album, but will have to check the scans.
3. You are correct. When a song is found on another album, you can pull the credits for it from another verified album on VGMdb. The only thing to watch out for is if it's a cover song, and has a different vocalist.

Thanks for finding those. I think most of them need some further verification before I'd be comfortable linking them, hopefully by someone who is more familiar with those works. The performer credits in the Yoko Kanno album don't match what's in the notes either.

Nigoro Flash Games volumes 1, 2 and 3 should be related to each other, since they're part of the same series, right?

The relation depends on the products represented, since the 3 volumes have different games, they'r not related.
(that's how the relation system currently work)

Well in that case...

Jesse Higginson: http://vgmdb.net/artist/12268

Albums:
http://vgmdb.net/album/23611
http://vgmdb.net/album/23612
http://vgmdb.net/album/23613
http://vgmdb.net/album/17328

Cedar Jones: http://vgmdb.net/artist/12269 with http://vgmdb.net/album/31693

Edit: All five of these are also published by the same entity, "Halfbrick Studios". I couldn't add the label so I guess I'm just not cool enough yet.

Two more:

Jaroslav Kasny - http://vgmdb.net/artist/12270

with:
Alpha Prime - http://vgmdb.net/album/17758
Shade: Wrath of Angels - http://vgmdb.net/album/24201

I believe the Good Old Games release of Arma 1 was also composed by him, but that isn't on the site yet.
