If you're one of our regular contributors you probably have noticed that it sometimes takes painfully long to get your edit checked. That is because we're pretty overwhelmed by the number of edits we get - and, as you might imagine, going through them is not exactly the most exciting job in the world.

To lighten our burden somewhat, there are now two additional permissions, which allow their holders to submit or edit band-related stuff without involving Staff members:

Permission: Submit band-related info without Staff check

- Granted upon reaching 350 Community points
- Allows submitting new albums, videos, bandmembers, lyrics and so on
- Allows to edit your own items (anything you were the last submitter/editor of)
- Doesn't allow to add bands, band styles or trivia
- Doesn't allow to edit other people's items, delete items or accept/reject edits

Permission: Edit band-related info without Staff check

- Granted upon reaching 1200 Community points
- Allows to edit albums, videos, bandmembers, lyrics and so on, including those submitted by other people
- Allows to add/edit styles for invisible bands
- Doesn't allow to edit Trivia
- Doesn't allow to delete items or accept/reject edits

Permission: Submit events without Staff check

- Granted upon reaching 500 Community points
- Allows to add new events, but not tours
- Allows to edit own events (the ones you added yourself)

Permission: Edit events without Staff check

- Granted upon reaching 1000 Community points
- Allows to edit events added by others


Trivia is excluded because it would benefit from some proofreading and filtering, and we don't receive that many trivia edits anyway. Adding bands is still off-limits, we try not to clutter our database too much.

If you got one of the permissions, congratulations. You will still receive points for your edits, but make sure you don't abuse this fact. If you have any questions concerning your new privileges, contact one of the Staff members. If you encounter any bugs, please post here or send me a PM.

Good news, thanks for new permissions

just...is there any particular reason why to exclude tours from that apart from the fact, that it is (i guess) another script than single event editing?

That, and a bigger potential to screw things up (which would require a lot of effort repairing)

Please people, pay some attention when making edits - especially events. For some reason, events get fucked up the most. So a wee bit of concentration is required when adding events.

If you want to add a single event, make sure it isn't part of some tour - which is very often the case!! Don't only use websites of local concert organizers, use band/label websites too to check. Also the search bar is your friend, use it.

Most of the time it's all a matter of common sense, and applying the simple notes and rules we've set out (reading them thoroughly is not a crime). And if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask.

You can't. You can only add/edit single events, no tours.

Something else I like to do when adding events is to check the MS locations section for the exact spelling/typing of a venue's name. As well as the benefits of clarity, I think it's a lot better when all these things are linked together and, in those locations' pages, you can see all the upcoming and past gigs for a certain venue.

Well, unlike other submitted data, style is subjective - that's why the special treatment. We'd like to retain some control over this thing.

No. It's temporarily (possibly permanently) disabled. There are some issues with editing events as a common user.
