So it goes...

Data > Images -- Many moons ago using Discogs helped me to choose a career path, I am now working as a systems librarian and cataloguer. -- That does mean that I get paid to catalogue music. Just saying. -- © ® ? ™

Lists -- Album of the Year -- Artists I Have Seen Live -- Music Documentaries I Have Seen -- Australian Military and Public Service bands -- Australian city bands and choirs -- Australian Prime Ministers and politicians -- Isolated Film Scores

Australian Label/Company Research -- ASIC for information about Australian companies -- ASIC company dataset, easier to search through when downloaded -- ACCC Public Register - Australian public register of murders and executions -- Australian Business register - Lists of company trading names -- Australian trademark search -- APRA AMCOS Search Australia's music rights organisation

Australian Artist Research -- Australian Dictionary of Biography -- Trove digitised newspapers -- Australian industry magazine

ROW company research -- UK company information -- NZ Government Gazette NZ cessation and name changes of companies -- British Newspaper Archive (See if your local library has a subscription) -- Billboard Magazine -- EBSCO Full text search for many music publications and newspapers including: -- Rolling Stone

Film and TV music resources -- Oz Movies Great data with a terrible search, best to search via Google

Video game music resources -- Metadata dump of video game discs Check cuesheets for audio tracks -- Video Game Music Preservation Foundation -- VGMdb Not very good catalogue records but sometimes has the necessary info -- World of Game Music Same as above, some different info -- List of Red Book standard game discs

Informative -- What is a CD glass master? -- How It's Made: Compact Discs -- Packaging terminology -- Cassette shell terminology -- Australian Classification logo history -- What Is A Red Book CD?

Useful Forum Contributions -- Guidelines are not Rules -- Sampler in an MR? -- Pressing info in FTF to differentiate -- Logo (usually) = label -- Merge releases with no uniquely identifying information -- CD, Enhanced is used for video games regardless of "Enhanced CD", "Mixed Mode", "CD Extra", etc. -- Picture sleeves vs Generic sleeves -- Invalidating labels guidelines -- Country for file releases

Matrix Info -- Describing a logo or symbol in the matrix -- Do not change currently added BAOI data and again here: No personal preference BAOI editing -- Diognes_The_Fox's personal preference BAOI solution -- SID codes are sometimes part of a complete matrix, do not remove them (2011) - A reminder from 2014 -- RSG §5.2.c: This information should all be added to one 'Matrix number' field

Extrapolation/Interpretation/External Sources -- When is a main artist not a main artist? -- Add a cat number from the label page -- Want to intuitively add credits? Yes for classical music, no for most else -- No interpreting dates from matrix info -- ANVs are okay for external sources of information being add as [Uncredited] -- Agreement to use fuller form of name as PAN with verifiable research -- Revert conflicting dates to Month/Year or Year

Unique Releases -- No SID and SID are unique releases -- Different manufactureres in matrix are unique releases -- Matte vs Glossy booklet / box / packaging

Random Pedantic Stuff -- Main artists should not be adjusted for perceived worth -- 3 or 6 month rule -- No brainer edits do not require concensus

Admin -- Discogs Dummy Release™ -- Link to help restore a MR -- Link to edit disabled artists Change XXXX to artist ID -- Create a Master Release from scratch

Research I have completed -- Mostly Australian artists -- Some of the references are in forum threads and some in artist history, some in both.
Graeme Bell and groups -- Forum thread
Australian military and public service bands -- Ongoing -- Forum thread about ABC Bands & Jim Davidson (3) -- Forum thread about Australian Army bands
Australian Rocky Horror Show casts

Drafts I keep in my collection because they have been deemed unworthy for various reasons:
Faith No More - B Sides And Alternate Versions (heaps of people still have this in their collection because it was merged with a KFAD release)
Mr. Bungle - Bowl Of Chiley (DIY Remaster) (No digital bootlegs allowed)
