Style Guideline Updates

If you’ve been lurking on our forums, you will know that our style guidelines have been receiving lots of attention lately! Both MusicBrainz docs and BookBrainz docs have been getting new additions and updates, and there’s still plenty being discussed. As I type these very words, there are greased-up editors in what’s known to us only as “the pit” – pitting their words, experience, and muscular bodies against each other in a bid for dominance over typographical punctuation.

Okay, okay, so there’s not really a pit, but here’s a rundown of some of the style discussions that are taking place, or have taken place, this year:

*proposals have been fully or partially implemented into the official style guidelines

For ongoing updates, keep an eye on the forums, and consider subscribing to the new forum tag ‘styleguide-proposal’. These community discussions do ultimately affect editing and your collections, so you may want to input as well. Slap on that grease, and get in The Pit! (I have to note, again, that there are no actual pits involved in any MeB discussions. A sad state of affairs.)

A big thank you to all the community members who shape our databases via their guideline input.
