Wise words from staff members and other wise men that are worth remembering but not explicit in RSG and otherwise impossible to find

Acceptable BAOI format for full sets of matrix variants grouped into sets rather than type:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/392356?page=5#7584624

Static BAOI items should be listed before matrix variants:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/392356?page=4#7444589
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/392356?page=16#7888524

Mastering SID codes are indeed unique to each LBR. They are installed in either the firmware or embedded in the system controller:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/832472#8276638

Price Codes are sometimes preceded by a country. This should be entered in the description field:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/392563#3640329

Colon (:) is a separator and not required after the country code in a Price Code description (so "France" and not "France:"):
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/767187

French Price Codes explained:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/706164

For multiple LCCN entries for the same entity, the one with a catalog number shall be listed first in order for the catalog number to display on the LCCN page:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/790898#7850561

On completion of "vanilla subs" and how it should be done:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/689414#6880111

If an edit makes a release more specific and goes unchallenged for more than 3 months, then the release becomes that version even though it wasn't the version the OS submitted in the first place:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/370612#3437789
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/405745#3763326

It's okay to remove an incomplete matrix variant after a warning period of 14 days:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/392356?page=10#7663587

Matrix variants of multi-disc releases are submitted per disc rather than per set of discs:
Examples: Peter Gabriel - Secret World Live, and The Beatles - Anthology 2
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/764447

No explanatory characters in vinyl record runouts:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/779522

How to disambiguate nearly identical vinyl releases from different pressing plants in Format:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/368277?page=2#7523520

Mass edits can be done without discussion if of a general character and evidence is provided that they are correct:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/386848#3684900

On artists with a stage name different from their full name - even though it incorporates part of their real name:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/233685?page=1#2953592
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/341744#3211470

On artists with stage name completely different from their full name:
https://www.discogs.com/help/forums/topic/207962

On artist and title names using letter substitution with numbers and other characters:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/402409?page=1#3786591

It's OK to add a full name PAN when factual and citable, even if there isn't a release (yet) in the database using that name:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/52d1089c4c5e2e78af851203#3653652

Credits of the type "X and Friends", "X with friends" or simply "Friends" should go under placeholder PAN "Friends of X":
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/396040?page=1#6897324

Translations of company names should be kept in separate entries:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/367180#3406502

On when to use "UK & Europe" in the Country field:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/717608#7133070
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/717608#7127309
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/373656#3468163

On wrong labels on side/same labels on both sides:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/412757#3820161

On the "Parent Label" field meant to express a generic parent/child relationship, rather than literally just for 'labels':
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/281068#2990500
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/405991#3765244

On when to add the location to a studio name:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/401943#3754010

On how to treat studios and labels with the same name:

https://www.discogs.com/help/forums/topic/337307

https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/403468#3742356
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/759779#7546689

On capitalization rules and that they are too rigid:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/414393#3838199
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/386853#3577892

D.R. type credits should go in notes and not be credited:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/409266#7203970

Vinyl replica CDs should also contain LCCN and BAOI of the replicated LP artwork:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/746884

The primary image for items packaged in a plastic case (CD, MC, etc.) should be the artwork without the case, except if the case constitutes a continuation of the artwork, has factory applied stickers, OBI strips, or otherwise contributes to the look of the release:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/364771#3389099
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/812904

Original US catalog number in () is to be listed separately, without the parentheses, and as secondary numbers:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/373853?page=1#3672872

Dates in matrix strings can only be used to deduce earliest release year, not exact release year:
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/855316
