Learn how to use 'Copy to Draft', will save you a lot of time & effort:

Images should be taken from a straight angle and only include the labels. [g 13.1.4.] [g 13.1.5.]
Vinyl surface area should be cropped out from images.

"alerts"
Data should be checked when using 'Copy to Draft'. All below Country seems to be unchecked. Now all data matches the source sub.
Please add to master after submitting.
A download source is required (here in sub-notes) for all file releases.
This appears to be a post-manufacture altered copy and not eligible as a unique sub - should be merged with the source sub. If this promo has a stamp or a sticker or a similar addition but is otherwise the same as the commercial release, this is not eligible.
Images should be taken a from a straight angle. One 'item' per image, please.

Label & Format
Artists are not collaborating, so the joiner in Artists should be a forward slash (/), not a comma.
B-side shouldn't be included in release title - only if the release is a 'Double A-side' or both titles are equally prominent on sleeve.
What is the source for using 'Single'?

What makes this Australian? How does this differ from XX? Add identifiers, please.
How can this be identified as a U.S. release? Please add details.
This is not a Misprint but a copy with a simple manufacturing error. A 'proper' misprint would have a typo in the title, list a wrong title but with the correct cat#, or similar. Please merge with the source sub.
If there's a cat# on the release, "none" can't be used. [g 4.7.2.]

Tracklist
All Words In Titles Should Be Capitalized.
Please use exact spelling on the release:
- https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/356624?page=2#7681296
Tracks should be in format: Track Title (Mix Title)
Positions are incorrect for a Vinyl, sides should be indicated: A1, A2, ... B1, B2 ...
Positions in Tracklist and Credits are incorrect for a Cassette, should be A1, A2, ... B1, B2 ...
Positions in Credits should match those in Tracklist.
Generic Headings like "Side One" are not allowed. They should be removed and Discogs standard Positions should be used A1, A2... B1, B2... etc. [g 12.2.1.], [g 12.13.4.]
Generic Headings like "CD" are not allowed. Also, positions need to be unique. To solve both issues, change positions to: CD-1, CD-2... DVD-1, DVD-2... etc.
Artists should be added to Tracklist (since not all main artists appear on all tracks).

Companies
Cat# should be removed from the Company entry. That field is only used if the company has a specific numbering scheme of its own (other than Cat#).
The Cat# field in Companies is used only if the company has a numbering scheme of its own. The profile of this company has no scheme listed. > Remove the Cat#. Remove 'none'.
Move companies from Notes to the Companies section, it's odd to have companies in both.
Would be better to submit all companies in the Companies section, not split between Companies and Notes.

Credits
Only credits that appear on the release should be submitted. I don't see any in the scans.
Credits per track should not be split, for example producers for tracks 16 & 17 are listed both in Tracklist and in Credits. Please use either section but not both. [g 10.2.1.] (...) Avoid splitting credits of identical roles for the same track(s).
Probably not correct:

BaOI
This is why on vinyl releases we use BaOI tags & descriptions like "Runout/Matrix (Label, Side A)" and "Runout/Matrix (Runout, Side A)" - https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/804251#7987550
Matrix descriptions belong in the Description field, not in the code field.
Double brackets/parentheses should be avoided.
CD matrix manufacturer / company identification and indexing thread: http://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/52151a969469733cfcfbcbde
Runout, Side A – Stamped, Hand etched, Faces label, Mirrored
Other: 2LG416471813G7 - this appears to be the matrix from CDr. This is not specific to the release, it's specific to the individual blank CDr disc and different to each copy - so it's not an identifier, please remove.

Barcodes done as explained here - http://www.discogs.com/help/forums/topic/218416#2705245 and http://www.discogs.com/help/forums/topic/219387
Barcode (Text) - barcode as written on the release
Barcode (String) - barcode with spaces removed (for indexing by Google and other search engines). This is the way that barcode is written in item's description in most online shops (as EAN)
It is "Barcode (As printed)" and "Barcode" (for the numeric data only, read by "human" eyes). This is according to latest ruling by nik:

Side 1 vs Side A: https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/805089#8090364
RSG §12.2.7. For side identification, please use A, B etc in place of 1, 2, One, Two, Side One, Side Two etc, including variations in any language. This includes program identification on multi-program cartridges such as 8-tracks.
"adding static BaOI items on top (barcode, price code, and other non-varying info) so that variants can be added without needing to move those entries around" https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/392356?page=4#7444589
This new topic leans on Side A/B to be used throughout the sub:

Notes
Notes should be removed, no additional data there.
Pictures should be taken from a straight angle.
With 12 other US CD's in the master with the same Cat#, it would be useful to add a note how this can be told apart.
"Xxx" is an 'empty' comparison, it doesn't tell how to identify this release. You have obviously determined how this is different, why not state the exact identifier(s)?
"Label variation: placement of text" is an 'empty' comparison, it doesn't tell how to identify this release. You have obviously determined what the differences are, why not list them here? Thanks.
Please use 'Regular sentence case' in Notes, not Every Word Capitalized.
Durations not listed on the release.
No durations appear on the release.

All sellers have been notified after the latest merge, I PM'ed each and every one right after. Most of them got automatic messages as well, I suppose. There were 74 ads in the merged sales page after the last big merge, which includes most of the sale ... See full review

Interesting, thanks for the info. I guess the printed credits can't always be trusted. You could add a "Compiled By [Uncredited]" credit to the releases, although Discogs requires some kind of proof.
