A Record Week Of Database Submissions, Thanks To The Discogs Community

Hi all!

As we get through these challenging times, I want to share some good news with you. The last two weeks (March 16-29) have been the biggest weeks ever for contributions to the Discogs Database! Last week’s numbers show that the Discogs Community have broken all previous records; 34,716 new releases submitted to Discogs (vs. 25,584 in 2019), 79,400 edits (vs. 58,258 in 2019), and an incredible 146,361 images added (vs. 107,036 in 2019).

We feel so uplifted that so many of you have chosen Discogs as the place to direct your energy. Contributing to Discogs is fun, engrossing, and very satisfying. The online Discogs community of which you are a part is large, knowledgeable, established, and supportive. Music is a deeply important part of human culture, and we enrich each other’s lives with every new piece of data added.

    New entries for “Country = Brazil” releases went from an average of 30-40 per day to 80-90 new entries per day. Unfortunately the quality of these new entries and the skills of new users logged in in the last few days is very poor, I imagine that the average number of new users in the CIP per day has also increased proportionally.

      Cool observation, Ibamaral. Hopefully there are some aficionados out there who are able to moderate and improve those subs. We’ll be sharing more content focused on helping new contributors and building skills for submitting to the database over the coming weeks. Thanks for contributing!
