please remove the word "vinyl" from the free text, as the format already states vinyl.
Capitalization & Grammar
1.2.1. The standard Discogs rule for artist and label names, joiners, release and track titles, format free text field, index track titles, credits, and headings, is the First Letter Of Each Word Is Capitalized. Track Positions can usually be represented exactly as on the release. All other text (release notes, comments etc) should follow standard English capitalization rules.
11.3. The following items are forbidden from the release notes:
Promotional language, hype, etc.
1.2.3. When using a slash between two words, please use a space on either side of it, for example: ABC Song / XYZ Song.
For releases with covers plus additional booklets etc:
Media, or A side (for double sided releases)
B side (for double sided releases)
Booklet 1st page
Booklet 2nd page
Matrix / Runout (Pressing code): 1-1-2-NL
CD Mould Text
Regarding the florin:
5.2.d. SID codes: When entering SID codes, please do not transcribe the logo as iƒpi. Lowercase ifpi should be used instead.
1.9.3. Using Unicode symbols or characters to reflect 'one off' graphic design decisions, such as reverse letters or letter substitution, should be avoided.
It's bad for accessibility. No one is going to search for iƒpi, it's difficult to parse if you don't even know what a ƒ is, and a screen reader will not read it as intended.
12.14.3. For releases where the same tracks or tracklists appear on different formats (for example, a CD and an LP set with the exact same tracks), please list all the tracks on all the different media.
12.2.3. Side specification is mandatory. The tracklist should follow the intended side order as indicated on the release. Some double sided releases with two or more items, such as auto-coupled 2xLP's, have unusual ordering. Commonly, one disc will have side A then side D, and the second disc will have side B and C. Enter the tracklist in the A, B, C, D order, and make a note in the release notes field saying it is an auto-coupled release. The side order versus tracklist order will sometimes change on different versions of the release - always follow the side order on the specific release.
6.13. The 'Stereo' tag shouldn't be used unless the item was released in stereo and mono formats, or is otherwise necessary to point out. For most CDs, Cassettes, and Vinyl releases since approximately 1970, it is unnecessary to state they are stereo.
