Oki, as you can see ALL the pics are missing.

Bands pics, albums pics etc etc

Of course now, you can edit the bands pages. ( Don't dream you cannot add bands, you cannot change styles (or it will be a mess hehe ) but you can add albums, pictures etc etc (we will have to approve it however to avoid a big mess, but we will do our best to be fast).


Well as you can see, without any pics, MS is just ugly... Imo, the best thing to do first is to fix this problem with the pictures

So instead of to add some single new albums or some guest members in the line up, you're ALL welcome to help us to add the pictures first

Thx you guys and gals !

And remember, now you get points when you do cool things... What will you get with those points? Surprise surprise... you'll see it later

Special thanks also from my side to everyone who contributes, especially to eleftheria (don't care about Jeff, he's not even your age; take me instead! ), Markku, Nervel, Thryce, Aloqua, Black_Handed, †Guille_Heavy† and Kariasakis. And sorry if we have to reject some of your edits despite of your efforts, which are appreciated a lot, but in case of the pics they also need to be in decent quality and frameless. But like I said, a very big thank you for your help nonetheless. You rock!!

I have a problem though. I was trying to add video and trivia to Negura Bunget's page, but I assume that I've failed, cuz I didn't get the confirmation/rejection or the 'someone else has updated this, and it's waiting for confirmation' message.
I recently got a confirmation for one of the videos I added. I added about a half dozen or so, I suppose the videos really aren't important. Well for now anyway, since the main focus seems to be adding album pics.

Also can we submit band pictures? And if so how?

Users can't upload band pictures.


@Staff: I was just wondering, when we send off a submission, what happens after that. It says that it gets sent to staff, but what does that exactly mean. Can any staff member accept the submission and update the band page?

All submitted edits are stored in a panel each staff member can view. What we see is the same what you see in the respective edit screen and how it was before your edit, so that we can still make slight modifications to your edit, in case of typos for example. And at the bottom we have the accept and reject buttons. So in fact we don't accept the submission and update the band page according to the submission, but it's rather you who updates the band page once we accept the submission.

But please bare with us if we aren't all that fast with processing your edits, there are currently far more than 2500 edits waiting for us and it sure takes some time caring about every single of them.

Ahh ok then. Yeah, I wasn't being impatient or anything, I can imagine how how many submissions you would recieve and how long it would take for you to get through them all! I was quite curious as to how the whole submissions thing worked and how it worked so that each staff member could have a look at the new submissions. Thanks for replying to that, Promonex

What to do with thsoe pictures which get distorted while making them smaller, I think actual quality of the picture is ok but the texture or pattern of the picture makes it look distorted, there aren't any places to get better pictures I think.
This happens mainly when pictures are varicoloured or has written something with thin font on it.

PhotoShop resizes any image perfectly. Paint sucks ass, please don't even try using it,
Also, you can find good 100x100 images for almost any album on Google Images.

I use ArcSoft PhotoImpression 3 to resize band pictures or album covers (I just finished with the Saratoga ones). It is very easy and works well. Forget Paint!

I used Paint to start with and so I quite rightly got about 15 rejections. Then I realised how crappy the quality was and how much better it could be! So then I tried using Corel Photopaint 11 and then changing the format to .jpg in Paint, which was better quailty, now I use IrfanView (a program that my Dad has been telling me to use for about a year and a half now, but I just got into it recently). It's an awesome program though. It produces .jpg images in .png quality, which is excellent.

I post here regarding a mistake I made. I just added the Behemoth EP "Antichristian Phenomenon", but I forgot to change the default "Studio CD" in "EP" and also forgot to change the default release year to the correct one.

Don't know if this is the right place to post this, but don't know where else. Hope this message helps.

I just accepted a couple of Sunn 0))) albums, their profile is inactive and "unofficial" as you said...if the band's worthwhile we'll accept the albums and who knows, maybe we can activate the band's profile and add it to our featured bands section

I've added some pics of Criminal and Dark Suns. Btw you guys should really check this band out (talking about Dark Suns) : their first album is doom/death in the same vein as Opeth, Anathema, and in their latest they play some dark progressive music, still really enjoyable IMO. (I had the feeling they were quite unknown...)
