I hope I am putting this in the correct forum but I have a suggestion where on songs you should have an option to be able to choose between Album, Ep, etc to say what the song was released on if it's released on a regular album you choose album, if it's released on an ep you choose ep, and if it's released on a single then you choose single. Another suggestion is to be able to add links to the Albums/Eps/Singles from places such as Discogs, etc sites like that. Finally, if we did get the first thing I suggested added you should be able to add another for example If it's released first on a single you can choose single and put the single title, but then there should be an option where you can add another and you can add the title of an album or ep it also got released on. This is just an idea/suggestion of something I think the site should add and hopefully it's maybe one day able to get added.

I don't really get why we should add these filters, for whatever we add there will be shown the same way - just 'Album'.

Can you elaborate on what you mean? I'm just a little confused on what your saying.

I think what Juan means is that it is a bit redundant to add so many filters when it's actually easier to simply add the album info in a somewhat consistent manner according to what most of the Moderators and Editors do. I'm aware it also depends a lot on each user's preferences but the standard 'title (year)' format seems functional enough already. Personally, I do specify if the song is contained in an EP or a mixtape (the latter is quite common in the R&B/rap/hip-hop genres) or if it's been released as a non-album single, but that's just me. In any case, if any album info needs correction, we're always here to help and some of us are trying to standardise the info on many pages but as you can imagine, it's a hell of a ton of work, haha and we're fast, but not that fast, haha.

Yes. And I also meant that regardless of putting EP/single/compilation/... as subfields, in both artist and lyrics pages it still will be shown as 'Album' simply'. It's hard already to keep it standardized - as you said with album years -, so I believe it's better to keep things as they are now, as adding new stuff could (and would) make our jobs slower.
