Hello,

I'd like to ask if now with the Collections it would be better to add all the soundtracks of a movie in a collection instead of creating a new artist's page and adding the singers as featuring artists.

Good idea! But as far as I know, collections can currently just be added and edited by one user (the creator), so no one else can add songs/translations/videos. I think, these features need to be changed before it's possible to use collections for OSTs.
But pretty sure, the admins will have some ideas... Wink smile

Hi.
And how about the songs? Under which artists should the songs be added? The singers who sang them? It is not a bad idea, but I'm afraid we all will need to edit all the OST songs then. I don't know whether it will be implemented or not, but I think you could still add your OST collections and not changing the whole thing.

Hi,
If it's an animation or a Bollywood movie that had songs specifically written and recorded for it, in my opinion movie pages should remain. In cases where it's not like that, then I'm OK with opening collections.

Same goes for musicals.

If the movie, series, or whatever else it may be is a musical and the songs were created for it, I don't see any reason to make it a collection rather than giving it its own artist page. If you ask me, that would more likely turn out to be a real mess, especially if you take dubs into consideration. The Moana page is already chaotic enough as it is.

EDIT: Had written collection instead of artist page.
