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 may be used for any stereo release, but is required if there also is a mono version in the database. Where a release contains both stereo and mono audio, both Stereo and Mono tags should be applied.
§13.1.4. Images should be good quality, face-on, readable, correctly oriented and must be free of any copyright, watermark, URL, or other marks. Images should be static, no animated GIFs please. They must be of the exact release they are attached to, please make sure of this by checking the catalog numbers, matrix numbers and other identifiers. Do not add images of releases with different catalog numbers, labels etc. You must have the exact release in your possession when you submit an image. Images of physical items must be taken by you and cannot be sourced from other websites or third party sources.
§1.2.4. Please use a typewriter apostrophe ( ' ) instead of a typographic apostrophe ( ’ ) or accent marks ( ` , ´ ).
