I understand that Discogs does not require images when submitting a release... so then, how can a release be voted correct if there is no visual proof to refer/compare to? (with the exception of white labels).
I seem to be running into a few possibly incomplete or possibly not correct releases that with an image would clear the whole thing up...
It's great to have them, but not everyone has access to an adequate scanner or camera.
I didn't have a scanner for a very long time and my first wouldn't let me do stapled booklets, card-sleeves or 12".
We all do what we can. Just ask some of the other owners if they can do something you can't. Cheers.
^ Yup; but images are a good source, as for example, Runrig - Recovery cassette, had the same cat number as the LP, and people could think I would be submitting a dupe; so I added pictures to prove my copy is different, hence why scans are a good source; so we can check if durations appear, if some credit roles appear on release, etc
