Main Site

Artwork, label, track-listing edit privileges

@Rob, is there any way that users could be vetted for some admin privileges? I add a lot of content to the site; occasionally, when I make mistakes, it’s really annoying that I can’t edit what I just did. For a user like myself, having racked up over 1000 submissions, might it be possible to allow some greater editorial abilities? I also happen across lots of poor quality artwork submitted, that I’d love to correct, but am not able to!

@Rob?

I like the idea but it’s risky. An application process could work if Rob is interested. Also, Rob’s jurisdiction of who’s most helpful could be a decider too.

It would be really helpful if this could be considered, or even if I could know what it is that constitutes significant tenure/submission history to have admin status. I absolutely love contributing to the site and always feel like a dick when I make an error/hate it when I see one that I can’t fix! Been contributing to Discogs for years!

Same, I would love it if we had some editing priviliges. I’ve seen some artists added multiple times and brought to the forums but nothing has changed so far.

This has been brought up in the past, and I’ve started work on a tool, but didn’t get very far into it. Currently I feel that my time is better spent working through the correction backlog, and adding additional features to the site. I understand that it’s annoying to not have things instantly fixed, but I feel like I’ve been doing a good job with keeping up with newly submitted corrections.

So I guess, in short, this is something that could be added, but it won’t happen in the immediate future.
