Big changes coming soon to Muse Collectors!

I am shortly going to ask a few members to take on the postition of Curator of the discography. I have created a system which is relatively easy to add items to the site.

Anyone logged in as an editor will see this on the discography page:



Notice the extra region flags on the side. When an editor clicks on a flag with incomplete items it shows them the discography but with "+" symbols wherever a countries release is lacking. To insert the German Showbiz for the first time, for example, click the german flag, then click the + above Showbiz to bring up the add page (described later).



Additionally, on every item page of the discography, editors have the ability to add major and minor items (variations). Clicking either of the new tabs will insert an item into that tab. This brings up the add page.



You simply fill in details like Title, release date, tracklist etc. The page pulls in info from other releases to try to fill it out for you. The new showbiz page shown above shows the information it has guessed you will need (release date, tracklist, title), so you just fill in the blanks and correct any details as I have done below:



Once the new item is added, you can add images to it by pressing the "+" button where the images should be.



Adding images is simple, you just upload a jpg with a title and description. Images are displayed in order of upload. You cannot re-order them manually yet.



Once you have your images, you can set the cover image by pressing the small "O" link that corresponds to the image you want to use. This is normally the first one.



Once items are added by editors they are not instantly available to everyone - this is where I come in. I double check the new additions, and if all is good I press a big red button that says publish, and everyone gets to enjoy the new releases.



And voila! We now have the German Showbiz on the website! Once we have a decent amount of items for each region, I will enable them for every user.

Hopefully this will rapidly expand the MC discography, and should be quite an exciting update to the site! I only want a couple editors to begin with as I am very busy, but if it all goes well I may consider opening the system more widely.

I need to make one or two more tweaks to the editing system before its ready to roll. As always, the best place to contribute items is the forums. Once the item has been posted in the forum then it can then go really easily into the site.

Are there any reasonably tech-savvy collectors out there who would be interested in helping me build the discography?

One of the difficulties of this is the EU general releases. I'm told that once Taste were abandoned the whole of Europe including the UK shared the same releases - but currently the discography doesn't allow items to have multiple regions (which is why FR is missing The Resistance + many singles)

It shouldn't be too difficult to come up with a solution but I need someone to explain the EU situation a bit better..

I would love to contribute in any way Possible, Due to my geographical status I dont know how handy can I be though, I mean,I dont think I own too many French, German or japenese releases But if you consider I can I will be more than willing to  :D .
 
For the moment I will re-check all my singles cat's, perhaps theres a rare release I overlooked before. And I will inmidiatly will start compilling South american releases, They couldnot be in the browing cathegory by now but it could be useful someday

About EU releases. Most of the taste era singles are from Taste, PIAS and Play  it again Sam.
For example, italian version of Plug in baby, muscle museum, Dead star/IYW are single cds only, not cd 1 and cd 2.

I think that it would be a good solution to create an European flag and put there the "shared" releases. I can provide infos about every single i have thati bought here in Italy and see if they are similar with other EU regions releases :)

I could help with the UK releases. As i troll around the pages i notice subtle errors such as incorrect tracklistings or incomplete ie. with the singles and DVD releases. I mean, if i was given access to edit them and given the chance to add pictures it'd be very helpful to the whole community. I promise not to Spam!

If this idea is still going trough, you could also check discogs for a lot of releases.... There are hundreds of releases shown there!

I hope you're gonna still gonna create the idea, so, Tom, when you got bored, you know what to do! :D

At the moment only I have the editing ability. So sorry! Add any scans to the forum and we can add them from there.

I will recruit some helpers at some point, and a few people have graciously asked to help. I am hesitant to roll it out to more people because I fear people may encounter bugs or make editing mistakes that go out on the site.

The intention is to roll out this functionality to many more members.

If there are any willing contributors with a good discography knowledge paired with strong technical knowledge please give me a PM :)

I'd love to help, but the truth is that I have zero technical knowledge of computing. =P
I can send more scans anytime!


Tom, I have another question! Today I saw in the "Ramdom item" from the home page the "Muse Exclusive Enhanced Sampler cd". I gave him click and add to my collection because I have it. But the question is, are there other cds like that within the page? Because it does not appear in "browse discography." Thanks! =D

Just a small error. It says the release date is 1st January 1970. Before Matt was even born!

This was the promo that the band accidentally sent back through time. It's rumoured that everyone who listened to it were visited by the trio in their dreams, teling them not to leak it when the internet is invented.

Ahh the first of January 1970. This is the date the sacred baby Unix was born.

How does one become a contributor? I'll definitely be interested in helping to add discography items, fix any errors I might find etc. I used to do this sort of thing on Wikipedia a few years ago.

There are quite a few sections in "International Releases" Albums/Singles. I would like to ask anybody that can, to start a thread page for the 'Europe, TASTE/PIAS' releases please. I have all I need for the BENELUX region, but I need some reference points for so called 'Italian etc etc' release. If anybody could load scans of what they have in a new thread that would be awesome!!!


Edit - I'm not asking for the discography to be added, my request is in the posting in the International Releases threads!

It would be awesome! I'm starting to collect them, but I need a reference too.
It bring me a complication, because I always put a small flag on each album, how do I make a flag of "Italy, Spain, Portugal and Scandinavia"? hahaha it should have something like the flag of Great Britain and Benelux
Cheers!

EDIT: probably like this?  :P

Pretty sure I'll be able to provide scans and info of the Drones deluxe set, the Reapers RSD picture disc & the Dead Inside/ Psycho cd single. Also, I think I could add at least one specific Dutch release, which is a festival edition of Showbiz.

If anyone'd be kind enough to let me know how to do that I'll do it as soon as possible :)

Hello,

This is fantastic! I have a 'Hullabaloo' 2cd version which doesn't appear in the discography section. CODE: 5050466888723. Which country is it from?

Also, there are some releases such as the ones in Benelux that aren't listed.
