I'd like to see an enhanced "Submit Corrections" facility. Perhaps similar to discogs.com. Where album art, track information, year, label etc.can be uploaded for moderation. Once a particular user has submitted numerous valid corrections they become "trusted" and moderation is skipped or your submissions are, at least, fast-tracked straight to the top of the moderation pile. It would make users feel more valuable and vastly increase the database.

I realise that "Submit Corrections" already exists, but I've used it on many occasions and never seen my submissions implemented. It feels like a token gesture, once you click "submit" you can't help but feel it's been sent straight to the recycle bin, hence my request to enhance it and make it more substantial, reliable and immediate.

You could even offer accreditations, for example once someone has submitted 5 approved corrections they become "trusted" with future submissions fast-tracked, once they have done 50 or more they become "reliable" and no longer require moderation, when they have done 200 or more they can moderate other submissions. This would then reduce the strain on AllMusic moderator employees.

Our FAQ has the most current, comprehensive information about common inquiries such as how to submit corrections:
Errors to written content like reviews and biographies, tagged metadata like Genres, Styles, Moods, Themes and Similar Artists, as well as information about credits, album covers, sound clips and music videos are on the end of our data provider, Rovi. You may submit artist- and album-related corrections to Rovi editors using Submit Corrections links available in the sidebar on artist and album pages, and corrections related to other types of data via our feedback form.

Rovi prides themselves on accuracy, so please include your information source in your submission. Please do not contact AllMusic about the status of data corrections; we don't control which data is corrected or how long it takes to apply corrections, and we can't move up your correction in priority or within a specific time frame. Rovi appreciates the time you take to send this information to them, but due to the immense volume of correspondence they receive, they're unable to directly respond to most of your submissions.


Thanks!
