Master Release (grouping multiple versions of a release)

We’ve just turned on our Master Release function. For those not familiar with it, this will allow us to group multiple versions of a release into one “Master Release”. This makes for better display on the artist and label pages, and also gives us a summarized view of all versions of a release. When viewing a Master Release page you can see all reviews, ratings, collection, wantlist, and for sale information for all versions of that release. Handy!

Initially, only voters will be able to create and edit Master Releases. This will allow us to test the guidelines, the code, and the general impact of the new function on the site and users. This should limit any initial problems, and allow voters to get a feel for it prior to all users having access to the function. Master Releases can be voted on, with just one choice of “Incorrect”. The voting and history section is in the usual place.

The initial guidelines for this are up at http://www.discogs.com/help/submission-guidelines-master-release.html#Guidelines Since this is a brand new function, we may well come across examples that don’t fit the guidelines, and will need discussion and guideline updates. Please post any problems here.

To create a Master Release, go to the artist page you want to update, then click “Create Master Release” in the Page Options box. That will open a panel at the bottom of the screen. You then tick the releases which belong to the new Master Release, select the “Key Release” with the radio button, and click Create. Editing a Master Release from an artist page is similar, but you must first click Edit on the one you want to change.

There is also a “Raw Mode” edit form on the Master Release page. This allows you to manually specify all contained releases, the key release, and notes. There is a full outline of creating and editing Master Releases at http://www.discogs.com/help/submission-guidelines-master-release.html#Creating

Please post if you have any questions!

    the person who created a master release on one of mine just put the year in and now its chronological listed before the one that came out a couple of month earlier… I can’t change it… any help?

    [quote=TomKay]Going through ABBA there are many entires such as Waterloo that have the same tracklist as entries such as Waterloo / Watch Out but that have the double A-side title. What to do here? Logically these should be combined…[/quote]

    Going by the label artwork, that is not a double A side, so it is OK. Even if it was, we could understand it should be an exception (exact same tracks on both releases).

    Ok, we’ve fixed the issue with votes not affecting the artist and label pages. And we’re running a script not to fix up all of the past votes.

    Yeah this is a problem for me, too, when some editions of a compilation are tagged “Album, Compilation”. Should I edit these releases to only say Compilation, or will there be a way to override/ignore the warning?

    [quote=AtomicCow]”MS 9″ and “MS-9” are still the same release in every way except the little dash in the catalogue number that could be there because:

    1) they changed their mind between pressings
    2) someone slipped up at the pressing plant
    3) the cat. no. is different between run-out groove and label
    4) it was entered incorrectly into discogs

    Either way, it’s the same record. I don’t see why catalogue number is more important than tracklisting/image etc.[/quote]

    Got you. Those should be grouped – we are just changing the Master Release on label pages to use the Shadow Cat# which should sort that out.

  • Apr 29,2009 at 12:31

    Just flew in to see MR working. And looking good.

    First observation: Track version titles (the part in parenthesis) are not mentioned included in the “Tracks included on these releases” part at all?

    [quote=DaveRowat]1. Should bootleg/pirated copies get put in a master release for something? [/quote]
    I’d personally prefer not to but I’ve got lots of reading up to do.

    Let’s see how this works — but so far, so good. Feedback to follow.

  • Apr 29,2009 at 12:28

    The titles on a lot of releases are arbitrary according to the submitter’s whims. So grouping those two ABBA releases should be ok if the tracklist matches.

  • Apr 29,2009 at 12:27

    apologies, i meant to say, you press the preview button and nothing, it just says preview, the word dissapears and the little thin box just sits there, you delete something re add it, or like move something around, or tick one box, page up page down, the preview screen pops out(sometimes)

  • Apr 29,2009 at 12:26

    Going through [a=ABBA] there are many entires such as [r=792406] that have the same tracklist as entries such as [r=358174] but that have the double A-side title. What to do here? Logically these should be combined…

    [quote=Gizmex]I found solution. U can do it from artist page, from section “tracks apear on” for example[/quote]

    works fine… thanks. but it’s just a compromise (only tracks on MR, artist names are not included)

  • Apr 29,2009 at 12:24

    2 problems
    1. when you try to make certain edits, the preview button doesnt work, sometimes you have to fidget the release id numbers around till it shows the preview page.

    2. when you make an edit on the master function, it shows the changes on the release page, but it doesnt show the changes in the history, it shows old and new updates they look the same like no changes where made, but if you go to the artist release page and click on the master release your editing, youll see it how you changed it. im hoping this is something thats just on my end, had to whip out firefox and rearrange some of the release and fidget with some buttons to finally finally get the preview button to come out, otherwise, awsome feature:D

  • Apr 29,2009 at 12:23

  • Apr 29,2009 at 12:19

    Couple ponderings:

    1. Should bootleg/pirated copies get put in a master release for something?

    2. Display thing: the “Create” and “Cancel” buttons are cut off at the bottom of my browser (this is in Firefox, does not seem to be the case with IE).

    3. Will it possible or order the individual master release pages (by year or Country for example)?

    Lookin’ good though.
    Sorry if someone already asked these while I was typing.

    Cheers!

    A highly welcome feature!
    I tested that on some releases in my area of interest which I’ve already criticised as being virtually duplicates: [m1335]. Basically, a Master Release solves at least a part of my criticism. Thanks for that.

    I’ve noticed a bug with the MR edit history:
    http://www.discogs.com/history?master=1335#latest
    The additional changes I’ve made to the MR notes are not displayed in history, but they show up in the actual MR.

    Also partly incorrect is the calcualtion of “x members have this”: 4 of 5 of these releases have been submitted by the same member, and he claims to own each of them. (I doubt that, but that’s a different story.) The MR states that “4 members have this”, which is a false statement, as it’s all the same member.

    From http://www.discogs.com/help/submission-guidelines-master-release.html#Viewing

    [quote]On the label page, Master Release is only used to gather together releases that have the same catalog number. For example, two releases with the catalog number ABC-001 that are in a Master release with be gathered together on the label page. However, if there is a third release in the Master Release with the catalog number ABC-001P, that will not be gathered with the other releases on the label page view.[/quote]

    This is very much intended. It wouldn’t make sense to group releases on label pages that didn’t have the same catalog number. IOW, master Release on the label page is only for things like grouping the white label with the full release.

    Haze – key release is primarily for the title, secondly for the image, and temporarily for the tracklisting. As long as the title and image is OK, I don’t mind which version is chosen. It doesn’t matter if it is a common version or the earliest version.

    The voting and history section is in the usual place on the main Master Release page:

    [quote=nik]There is only one vote for MR – ‘Incorrect’. Otherwise, the MR is assumed to be correct.[/quote]

    And where do we cast that vote?

  • Apr 29,2009 at 10:26

    strange: top of page at artist [a=Yax], same item at top of page on label [l=Kreislauf] – different display, the 12″ spitting off on label page but not on artist page.

    Edit Master Release doesn’t seem to work – created one and tried to edit (release notes) … indefinite stall. http://www.discogs.com/master/edit/207

    Same problem with [l=Dreamboat Records]

    sorry, a duplicate of my previous entry..

    I tried to make master releases for this band:
    http://www.discogs.com/artist/Total+Fucking+Destruction

    There are 2 already:
    Frontside Nosegrind EP – works fine
    Grind Eternal EP – error message shows up

    Release, where the error message appears, is on two labels.. Is there not a bug or something like that, when making a master release for the stuff that is released by more labels??

    [l=Shufflemood] – updated all releases to new file # convention – no changes show in formats.
    also no yellow showed although I think they’ve been voted now so that can’t be seen anymore … but there was no yellow. edit: at this moment 2 are still pending. no yellow.

    Also, a master release edit doesn’t appear on my submissions, does this mean they are not a change that’s voted on?

    [quote=consort]formats are no longer in a column[/quote]

    That was changed on purpose, we’ll see how this pans out, give it some time.

    [quote=consort]non-MR changes to submissions don’t show up (either the change itself or the yellow coloration to indicate change)[/quote]

    This should be ok, please post any example URLs for us to check out – thanks!

    [quote=TechElec]Erm, they only diplay as the master on the artist page, label page is unaffected. That intentional?[/quote]
    Masters are only shown on a label page if they have the same catalog number.

    Just done the ‘releases’ section of [a=Cybotron]

  • Apr 29,2009 at 10:01

    Just made one. Works well and is easy. Very nice.

    Label display got all messed up, though: formats are no longer in a column and non-MR changes to submissions don’t show up (either the change itself or the yellow coloration to indicate change)
