Various Artists Workaround

Postby McVicar » Thu May 18, 2017 7:15 pm

As you may know, you can not currently upload images directly under Various Artist because simply the database is overloaded. Leepenny and I have created a workaound which allows to move the pictures into this category.

As usual, you approve the pictures free (or not "LOL") in the comentar is then something like "please move to 28d9dcd1-f07b-3449-a4b1-bcea335001f4, thx" when the pictures are approved go straight to "Manage Image "where you can either get to Cdart or album cover.
The pictures you just approved are listed as first.
As shown in the picture, simply perform these steps, e voila and the pictures are in the right artist.

P.S.
If you have own pictures for Various Artists then there is a second where there are no pictures. Just select one and upload.

I'm trying to upload an image of a game sound track album cover to Various Artists, but I'm having issues.
I've tried uploading to the Various Artists with over thousand pictures, but it seems the situation hasn't changed since last year, and uploading is still not working on that page.

I then tried to do as advised here, and upload to the other Various Artists page with a request for the upload to be moved by the moderators. But that's where I got stuck. The album was not listed in the upload options, so I attempted to add it by the release-group id. But when I do that, it says: "album already exists in db". And when I check the list even after that message, the album is still not there.

I'm wondering if the problem is the fact that I already added the release-group on the crowded Various Artists page, where it also shows up on the list of upload options. Is there something I can do, or does this issue require a moderator to solve?

Ah, I think I get it now.. So I'm supposed to just use any of the existing listed albums on the empty Various Artists page to upload the picture, and just tell in the comment where it belongs to so the mods can move it, right?
