This is the major revision of the Collaborator's Handbook that the admin team have been building for some time. Unlike the previous one based on forum posts this one will be available as a PDF file that you can either view online or download to your computer. You can access it at from the below link which we will update as required, as well as posting in this thread what changes have been made between versions. The thread may also be used to give the admin team any feedback on the handbook and the site policies detailed therein as well as to ask any questions if you're unsure of anything.


Current Revision: Version 2.7 (18.03.2017)

Dropbox may ask you to create an account or log-in but this is not required to access the Handbook.

This is great work.

I haven't had time to read it in depth yet but a bit of feedback based on the bits I've skimmed through so far:

Quote Never write Female Vocals after a female performer's credit. Again, vocals are vocals. No one writes Male Vocals after a male performer's credit after all. It's sexism to differentiate between male and female performers this way, which is not something that MMA will tolerate in our collaborators or neutrally written records.


Thank you so much for putting this in. It pisses me off so much when I'm researching missing bands on EM with the way they insist of segregating women with the 'vocals (female)' credit.

Having a section on current site issues should prove helpful too, though I'd like to see these kinds of things get fixed soon.

Just read it all. Don't know how much actually went in.LOL

It's a good set of standards and instructions. The only major thing I've been doing wrong is sticking the bonus tracks in the wrong place.Embarrassed That's my fault for not reading the handbook thoroughly earlier.

Handbook 2.7 uploaded.

Adds in the reference to glam now requiring approval and re-writes a couple of sections in the name of making them clearer.
