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.
Here Are Some Tips To Help Make The Experience Fun For All
- Take your time. If in doubt, please check the guidelines, or ask the community for help.
- Make sure your Database Notifications are turned on so you can respond to any updates by others.
- Always be polite to each other. It is never a good time to get into online arguments, and now more than ever, we request you are considerate and calm with your fellow Discogger.
- If you are doing a big update that affects a lot of releases, please post a message in the forums so others can double check it is a good idea.
Thank you all for being such an amazing community. Please stay safe, keep positive, and enjoy the site.
