Artists that need to be merged.


16 Dic 2008, 3:31

Since a lot of artists have multiple pages on (and no need to say it is annoying...), I made a list of some artists that should be merged. I will update this journal entry when I find new mistagged artists, even if I don't expect it to be exhaustive at all - there are LOADS of them, so I'm not gonna spend all my time searching for them. Add your own in the comments if you want.

For the moment it seems it is not possible to merge artists, but since it is a major issue that is debated for some time within the community, I hope the staff will be able to do something about it in the future (it was possible to merge artists like 2-3 years ago).

Thanks to the search function, I came across a lot of wrongly tagged artists, much more than I would expect, which made me think the problem really has to be solved. I ignored the ones with a really small amount of listeners, but still, the number of wrong tags used by hundreds of listeners is scary (and it's sort of disappointing to realize that so many people are not able to tag their music correctly).

If you listen to one of the mistagged artists below, you should really consider fixing your tags. It's not that much to ask.

So here's my list so far (not exhaustive at all as you can see, but you have to start somewhere):

Akiko Shikata
Shikata Akiko
志方 あきこ

Rhapsody & Sonata Arctica
Manowar & Rhapsody
(the wrong artists above contain only Rhapsody songs)
Rhapsody (of Fire)
RHAPSODY featuring Christopher Lee
Rhapsody Feat. Christopher Lee
Rhapsody ft. Christopher Lee
Rhapsody (Symphony of Echanted lands)
Rhapsody (Dawn of Victory)
Rhapsody - Dawn of Victory
Rhapsody & Christopher Lee
Rhapsody (Rain of a Thousand Flames)
Rhapsody - Power of the Dragonflame
Rhapsody - Symphony Of Enchanted Lands
Rhapsody - Rain Of A Thousand Flames
Rhapsody - Symphony Of Enchanted Lands II
Rhapsody feat Christopher Lee

Rhapsody and Rhapsody of Fire should NOT be merged, since RoF is their new name since 2006 both artists are valid.

Stratovarius & Sonata Arctica
Stratovarius - Singles B-Sides Cd 01
Stratovarius - Future Shock
Stratovarius - Singles B-Sides Cd 02
Stratovarius - Black Night

    This is one of my pet peeves on Last.FM as well. It's also why I use the voting system on pages for mistagged artists/tracks to put in a redirect vote (at the bottom right-hand side of the page: "Is this track name wrong or misspelt? Suggest a correction."), although that system can be extremely slow if no one else sees and participates in the vote. It's also annoying to see tracks with accented characters being less frequently scrobbled than their unaccented (and therefore incorrect) counterparts. See Gotan Project for an example; the back covers of their albums clearly show the accents on characters. And yet Época has around 540 scrobbles, while the incorrect Epoca has over 1,400. It's not just an incorrect track title; it's also incorrect Spanish (although casual typists of Spanish may think this is nitpicking). As for using romanised names rather than the original script, I'd have to go with the latter. Especially if you look at classical Russian composers, whose names can be romanised differently in English and German (and not only [i]one[/i] version per language!), it seems more sensible to use the original Cyrillic—even if that means users who can't read Cyrillic end up having it in their charts. At least then they'd be scrobbling tracks under a unified artist. (And on that note: both Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Пётр Ильич Чайкoвский exist, and they even link to each other.) Don't even get me started on "Surname, First Name" artist tags versus "First Name Surname"... :(

    And since the idea for merging Akiko Shikata with her doujin circle (VAGRANCY) is here, how it would be about merging Haruka Shimotsuki with her two doujin circles: Maple Leaf and tieLeaf?
