If you think a particular mod is consistently stealing your submissions, bring it up on the forums. Of course you would have to have pretty solid proof of it. Or get in touch with some of the people here who are mods and have them handle your submission. Once the band is submitted, though, it's pretty easy to get info on. Though if you submit it anonymously some mods will not take a report seriously.

Plus there is one guy, Witcher, who is a total bitch about the "physical proof" guideline for adding bands. He basically wants a photo or link to a distro selling it. Especially the latter can be difficult to produce for really obscure stuff. I mean, the only people who have really tried to lie about having physical releases are Iranian bands that send us press releases claiming they're not metal anyway. Oh and sometimes someone will try to pass off some Myspace uploads as an actual demo.

Adding stuff to MA really isn't that difficult. You just have to know how to play off the "authorities".

its not about hording knowledge, i dont have the time to go on there and add every band . I tried adding bands to that site and they deleted them saying i needed proof the band existed etc etc. Then some one with the tag of metal lord or what ever adds what they want. Why should i make any effort if thats how the site works


metal lords usually deny bands you submit, and add them later with same info. to make more points.

Once someone is a "metal lord" the points are meaningless. I don't think anyone who is already a mod really cares about getting more (maybe christkiller did) since they won't allow one to do more.

I never even noticed it was based on points, and status. I just use it when I hear of a new band, and need to know how many releases they have in order to track them down. Guess I'm a poser...

People who participate in this site only do it for the status they get given by the asses that run it.

prime example..i upload patholog demo for d/l , next day some fag as added it there.


Because it's preferable not to have a source of information about obscure bands?


why add something you know nothing about , what kinda source is that.?

you fag worshipping knob


Because fags like you won't add it yourself?


because fags like u have to go to places like that to learn stuff.

and i dont need to be called a metal lord or what ever on some crap site


Yeah, what a piece of shit I am going to a website to learn about bands that is impossible to learn about otherwise. I'm not going to apologize for not being around when these 80s and early 90s demo bands were active and thus not know about them. I don't deserve to learn about Patholog because I don't already know about them? That's some great logic there.

As for the points bullshit, I agree with that, but not everybody who adds information is doing that for fucking points. Maybe the person who added Patholog just wanted the information about the band to be available, and there's nothing wrong with that.

I'm moderator at metal-archives.com, not administrator, its a fucking difference. Someone still must confirm bands that I add (few times an band was "deny" and just 1-2 days latter exist at m-a with same info). I can just add new info and editng old info.

"Metal lords" are moderators. "Metal gods/goddess" are administrators. You can only get these by being appointed to them.

so by going onmetal archives youll learn all about patholog , i dont think so , as the guy who added it knows nothing, hence who ever checks it out will know nothing.
At least know something about the bands your adding.

Anyone have any idea why metal-archives continuously refuses to add some bands, like CROWNED IN SEMEN or CLAUSTROPHOBIA (from China)? They're both legitimate bands with legitimate releases, but they're not on there despite my submitting either one - and I'm sure I'm not the only one, either.
