Quick links / page anchors added to guideline pages

I have added HTML anchors to the main guideline pages today. This means you can link directly to the section of the guidelines, for example [url=http://www.discogs.com/help/submission-guidelines-release-artist.html#Artist_Name_Variation_ANV]http://www.discogs.com/help/submission-guidelines-release-artist.html#Artist_Name_Variation_ANV[/url]. It also makes the section you are looking for a bit quicker to find, especially for the pop-up help view on the submission form.

This is a list of all the available links now in the main help section:

    [quote=nik]My recommendation for this has been to use the ‘find’ function on your browser (F3) and type in the credit you are looking for – this should then point you to the right item. [/quote]

    i have tried but i get no result whatsoever :(
    I think the credit list needs to be searchable, as there are alternate spellings etc for instruments.
    i agree with the above

    Really, I think the credit list needs to be searchable, as there are alternate spellings etc for instruments.

    My recommendation for this has been to use the ‘find’ function on your browser (F3) and type in the credit you are looking for – this should then point you to the right item.

    There were also some translations http://wiki.discogs.com/index.php/DiscogsCredits that would be good to incorporate into it somehow.

    one more thing about the RSG ..the credit list has grown substantially ,how about it being a bit easier to view for ex:
    a drop down option with a few categories like Instruments, technical roles etc , the problem really lies with the instrument section as there are so many ..it takes ages to find a certain instrument sometimes , maybe even a dropdown to chose certain seperated columns for types of instrument such as wind ,drums,vocals etc, then maybe some anchors could be added to the above list :D

    Ah nice. I was thinking about this even this afternoon. Now you can point submitters exactly to things they need to improve and how.
