Going back to an earlier suggestion by the groovin' Peruvian Ivan, does anyone know if the database software would allow us to restrict the adding of NEW albums to just collaborators only? i.e. if a collaborator adds an eagerly awaited album before the official release date we get Guldbamsen or equivalent to spank them mercilessly (I don't actually think this is possible and I suspect that to implement such we would have to remove entirely the ability for any non collab to add albums?) Given the high maintenance housekeeping that ratings manipulation entails, I certainly wouldn't wish the tedious task of manually deleting the ratings and/or reviews of hirsute plankton on my worst enemy. If people behave like kids, maybe we should start treating them likewise?

This is something worth remembering. Thanks Dean. The way I've been going about it this morning has been nothing short of excruciatingly tedious and mind-numbing. My brain feels like jello atm.

Ahh Hal. You always make me smile - even when you're telling me truths that I don't want to hear.

Why do we even allow albums added before release?

Still bothers me.

javajeff, I got your reply notification via email and in regards to "He states that he does not like this type of music. He clearly is not rating the album but knocking the band for not making his favorite genre of music." I too agree with you, if one does not like the music genre obviously he or she is not qualified nor does he or she have the knowledge/skills necessary to write an in-depth review with insight to that music genre, thus not being able to compare an album with another fitting within that same genre. This to me is quite obvious. I doubt one listens to music they don't enjoy therefore they are not equipped to discuss this matter, never mind reviewing that kind of album, seriously.

Pretty decent review, he states what he likes and what not from the album, giving some detailed comments about songs. Nothing wrong here.
