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

You should read what it says.

Album covers can be too heavy in kb, can have the wrong size, etc.
And you can't add other stuff because they have too much submissions.

Now that you can change bands' pictures, please remember one thing:

Change those pictures only if it is a necessity…


I mean that it's ok if the pic is missing, out of date or with a bad quality... but all the ones, who will change the pictures only to win some community points or just because they don't like the actual pictures, will loose their perms to edit the bands' pages....

Ok ?

Remember it and thx for your help

Edit: Yeah so I tried it again and it still won't let me edit any bands.

Virgin Black's EP Trance appears twice. Also, how much info must we give about a band that hasn't an active profile so ti would become active? Or it depends on the administrators?

'Edit' one Virgin Black EP, and put something in the 'comment on changes' box.


This has been asked a hundred times.

You can give all the info about those inactive bands, in the end, the staff will decide.

Lol, don't worry, I heard you grind/gore mate.
I just added some band pics of Circle Of Dead Children, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Candiria, Exhumed, Fantomas, Macabre, Mortician, Pig Destroyer (!) and Squash Bowels (my new goregrind favo).
Now all MS-featered-Grindcore-labelled-bands have a band pic

Well, sometimes it takes some time to the moderators to check the lyrics, that's why it takes so much time to post them, when I added the lyrics for Tvangeste it took like 2 and half weeks to post them in the page, so, we must be patient

We will come across your additions and edits, but as The Alchemist said, be a little bit patient. Of course we really appreciate your work and we won't let your efforts go to waste.

You see, the moderators apreciate our contributions indeed, but I guess they have so many things to do that sometimes it's quite difficult to check the contributions

Does anybody around have original Forbidden releases? I've just added them and their bassist Matt Camacho is the only one I couldn't find pics of. So if someone has the CD's and a scanner, it would be great if that someone could upload a pic of his (if there are any in the booklets). Also better pics for drummer Steve Jacobs and guitarist Tim Calvert (who also appeared on Nevermore's "Dreaming Neon Black", so if someone has that CD...) would be great. Please PM me in that case.

@lordz and The Alchemist: lyrics don't really have priority as they are just a minor feature of MS. Seeing as we still have enough lineup and album edits to work on and considering that our team is quite weakened at the moment, you'll have to have lots of patience before we'll work on the lyrics. Some of us even listen to the releases to check the submitted lyrics, so you could say that lyrics edits need the most time, but are least important. Of course your input is highly appreciated and sooner or later we'll also work on the lyrics, but there is just more important stuff we'll have to care about prior to lyrics, so don't expect a swift execution of your edits all that soon.

And BTW - not only moderators work on this site

Well, just as I imagined: some of the moderators listen to the music to check the lyrics, so, I understand the time it takes
And which is the most important stuff to add besides pictures?

@The Alchemist: band profile, lineup and discography would have highest priority, at least for me. Musician profiles and the videography come next. And pretty much on last rank are the lyrics.

@lordz: I rather think we should wait til holiday season is over, when the already existing team will be complete again

For the CD 'Cast Into Fields of Evil Pleasure' by Illnath, there are two reviews by Undercraft. They are almost exactly the same, excepting the fact that a few words are changed and the puncuation characters display correctly in only one of them (for me at least).

I wanted to add pics for members of Dimmu Borgir. I found needed pics, resized them to 150x150 and saved. When i tried to upload, MS message told me that image size must be 20 KB or less. My pics were 23-30 KB. When i tried to decrease their size saving in lower quality (even 3-4 in Photoshop and that is very poor quality) i couldn't reach 20 KB border, my pics were a bit bigger. Then i used SAVE FOR WEB, they were lower size than 20 KB but MS doesn't support GIF format. Why? I don't want to save them one more time in JPEG.
My suggestions:
1)allow bigger size of files (maybe 30 KB);
2)allow to upload gif files too. As you know, gif if normal format for web and it's supported as JPG and PNG and usually GIF pictures are in lower size.

@ W-Lash: Hum, my suggestion: gimme the links to those pics and I'll see what I can do (PM).

@ Markku: About text code in lyrics, I don't know... you can always try, mentioning that you've been using code in the comment field.

@ GhostofMirth: Thanks, I deleted one of those reviews.
