Dev LabelCompany2009 Label and other Entity Data Entry

Label Company Proposal 2009 -
Home

Summary

To expand the Label field to allow various other entities to be entered,
allowing most all data to be entered if wanted.

Label and cat# are not directly tied together with this proposal.
Please see the Number Data Entry page for more details.

Expanding The Label Concept

This is perhaps the biggest alteration that may be needed for this whole
update.

The http://www.discogs.com/label/ pages are obviously specific to
labels. In order to broaden this to all these other entities, the name
will need to be changed, or some other solution found. All other
functions to do with a label profile can stay, but will need minor
naming updates to reflect a more universal system. The "Parent Label"
and "Sublabel" fields could be renamed to something like"Part Of" and
"Contains" as universal names for these relationships.

We should make it possible to enter more than one 'Parent label', and
implement the ability to mark an association between two labels or
companies inactive or defunct by placing a "X" after the
parent name in the submission form.

A solution to the naming issue could be to call the link

Data Entry

Entity Page Display

The display of this information on the release will follow what we have
already on the Label page.

The new pages will be divided into sections for each new entity tag, for
cases where an entity is involved in more than one aspect of the
process.
