Difference between minor and major page edits

3
Dpunk (talkcontribs)

Hi all,

Hope all is good. I'm sure this probably covered in a thread / page elsewhere but I would like to ask the difference between minor and major page edits, more specifically the reasons for / against ticking or unticking the minor edit box at the end of each mix page. Thanks in advance for your help! Smilie - smile.png

A minor edit would be changing some letters or numbers eg: Sven Vath -> Sven Väth or just adding another player or genre.
A major edit would be rewriting a whole tracklist or correcting a lot of stuff through out a mix page.
For everything in between: you decide Smilie - wink.png

Medicine Bar at the Custard Factory

I wonder if Medicine Bar should be merged with Custard Factory? Wikipedia entry about Medicine Bar says it was a bar located in Custard Factory.

b@TV players are dead

be-at.tv/ has been buggy for weeks and now just redirects to their YouTube channel.

Not sure if their players will ever work again Smilie - whistle.gif

I didn't add many players from them lately because I knew something's stinking.

Their website is/was Flash only. And browsers kill Flash over time, e.g. latest Chrome now having a "Click to activate Flash" until 2020, when they entirely remove Flash support.

Either they're re-building their site or go YouTube-only. Their communication sucks.

Non-Latin characters in title

Hi!

I apologize for possible duplication, this question may already have been asked, but I couldn't find it.

I have a mix with title in Russian. Is it possible to add mixes to MixesDB that have non-Latin (e.g. Cyrillic) characters in title? And if yes, what are the rules for appending them?

MDB (talkcontribs)

Technically no problem, go for it!

Kdg (talkcontribs)

Here it is, just in case.

Help, How to add mixes to an existing artist

Felipe Gomez (talkcontribs)

Hey guys,

New to this, have been using this page for years now to find tracklists tho. Great work. Anyways I wanted to add the following mix "soundcloud.com/deep-space-helsinki/curated…" Smilie - joy.gif to the artist "Möd3rn" as they have not been taken care of very actively I also plan on adding other mixes. Anyways after looking at the help page and not finding any clues (maybe I am just too stupid), I decided to make a post here. BTW these emojis here remind me a lot of the ones used in technoforum.de :D coincidence? Greetings, Felipe Gomez

Basically you add a title here mixesdb.com/w/MixesDB:Add_a_new_mix then fill the one- or multi-part file template then add the categories. By adding Möd3rn to the [[Category:|]] you will have the page appear on Möd3rn. Just edit some pages to see how they're set up.

Template OtherVersions

how and when to use {{OtherVersions}}?

MDB (talkcontribs)

When there is a unique source for an original file, say a pdcast and somebody comes along uploading a version with edited ending or rising the birate or stuff like that.

Such versions add zero value to the original and you may not be willing to add further file details and tracklists just for that when everybody should have / get the original actually.

SoundCloud's old upload r_co did that a lot for example and it was annoying as hell (for us).

For radio shows we use the 1h, 2h, etc templates and add the full original tracklist (if available) because several different recordings and edits of these exist online.

I've been meaning to make a repository for all of the resources I have collected over the years for a while. I've previously lost all of my bookmarks a few years back before I had everything backed up in the cloud, but now I feel like I've gotten back to where I was (and then some). Hopefully this will be useful to others and the site overall:
