New Guideline sections – Updating a release / Glossary

I have added in two new sections to the guidelines:

  • [url=http://www.discogs.com/help/submission-guidelines-updating-a-release.html]Updating A Release[/url]
  • [url=http://www.discogs.com/help/submission-guidelines-glossary.html]Database Glossary[/url]

The ‘updating a release’ section is something I felt we were lacking information on, for both new users, and regulars making large changes or entering into disputes. Hopefully, that page will help make things a little easier for all.

The Glossary had been worked on in the Wiki for some time, and I felt that it was a useful thing to have in the official guidelines. I have done a little editing on it from it’s wiki version.

Please let me know if anything is unclear, could be worded better, or needs some other change!

    [quote=nik] didn’t seem to need adding the same text to both sections – see what you think [/quote]
    Yeah, I think it’s good this way!

    I have updated the “Updating A Release” images and text to reflect the changes to the release page layout.

    [quote=fisonic]How about including one short sentence, under Alias and ANV respectively, which underlines the distinguishing idea in relation to the other?[/quote]

    I added something to the ANV section, didn’t seem to need adding the same text to both sections – see what you think.

    Added, thanks! Also added a section for ‘Add Release Form’ and for ‘Field’, and fixed some links. No doubt there could be more additions or improvements, let me know if you can see any.

    How about including one short sentence, under Alias and ANV respectively, which underlines the distinguishing idea in relation to the other?

    Thanks, I clarified the notifications, and fixed the typo!

    Really good. Especially the glossary will be very helpful for new users, I assume. :)

    […] All users with their notification option set to “on” will receive an email or PM informing them a comment has been made. [/quote]
    Maybe it should be clarified which users. (I think it’s only users who have previously edited the release?)

    Also a small typo in the last sentence: “it vital” -> “is vital”?
