We’ve started our reduced editing phase, where everyone is encouraged to not add any new edits to MusicBrainz until we release NGS. We’ve added ugly banners to each edit submission page and the home page on musicbrainz.org to remind everyone that they should be voting more than editing this week.
Next week we’re going to disallow edits entirely. For more information on these pre-NGS changes, please read our Preparing for NGS guide.
Lets get the edit queue down as fast as we can!
