I like it.
I have records.
They go 'round.
I have tapes.
I have CD's.
I hear they go 'round too,
but I have no proof
to back up this hearsay
(Downloaded music has no soul).
My Personal Guidelines For Discogs
--I rarely vote, so don't expect one--it's nothing personal (I've requested to admin that my voting privileges be revoked, given that the voting system is meaningless). On the rare occasion that I do vote, I only use the "Correct" vote, and I only use it if someone has done something excellent.
--I don't use the forums (except for occasional sarcastic or snarky comments). The community buddy system has ruined reasonable discussion in the forums.
--While I try to follow the guidelines for my new submissions, I will only rarely make comments or suggestions, and don't make edits on existing releases. I find no benefit in trying to fix or add information to make a release "correct" since guidelines are not enforced. In many cases, suggestions (even small ones) lead to defensive responses, and conflict, so I don't worry about the information others have contributed to a submission.
--I will only possibly answer comments on releases or PM's if they are kind and respectful queries.
--I only enter a minimum amount of information on new entries, so as to catalog my collection. Don't ask for further information that is not required, as it will not be entered by me (but feel free to add relevant information if you have the release).
--If one of my submissions gets edited (with information or images) so that it no longer reflects my copy of the submission, I create a new entry that matches my copy rather than try to convince a contributor that edits are incorrect.
-Vote as you see fit, as (I've said previously) the voting system is meaningless.
