Hello!
I have some questions:
For example, this is Darren Korb's page: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/darren-korb-lyrics.html
In it, there are 14 songs corresponding to 4 different videogames.

Should each videogame have their own page (ex. "Transistor (OST)" which will have 6 songs in it) and have Darren Korb (and Ashley Barrett [the performer]) as a featured artist?
Or should the games have their own page with the songs added as "related" or "also performed"?
Or is it okay as it is and the games should not have their own page?

And my other question is:
Here's Sonic The Hedgehog's OST page. https://lyricstranslate.com/en/sonic-hedgehog-ost-lyrics.html
In it, there are a lot of songs. They're all from different games from the same franchise. In this case, is it okay that they're all in one page? We differentiate each song adding the name of the game in the "album" part of the info. But there are other pages, like the Kingdom Hearts 2 page https://lyricstranslate.com/en/kingdom-hearts-ii-ost-lyrics.html that only list the songs in that specific game. So, should we also make a page for the other 3 main games of the franchise that have their own songs? Why not making a general page for all of Kingdom Hearts' games?

I'm a little confused tbh n_n"
I just want to know what's the best way to sort these kind of songs.

Best regards!

Ok so, 1) I should create a page for each game as "somethingsomething (OST)" and then someone should move, for example, Darren Korb's songs into their respective pages.

2) The Sonic The Hedgehog (OST) page is okay as it is.

3) And the "Kingdom Hearts II (OST)" page should be renamed "Kingdom Hearts (OST)", right?

That's what I got from your guide, haha.

As for 1, you're correct. Darren Korb is not an actual performer, I guess - I remember we had Jeremy Soule (from Skyrim) a while ago, then we renamed the entry.

As for 3, I don't know 'Kingdom Hearts', but if it's two different installments in the series with different songs, that's correct as well, we can split the one entry into two. We would just need to know which song would go into which entry.

Thank you for your help!

Kingdom Hearts is a series of videogames. I think they're more than 8 games. Not all of them have their own songs, but some of them do. So maybe it would be better to have a general page than to split them all in different pages. Is it okay if I rename that page and remove the "II" part?

Darren performs some of the songs, but he's mostly a composer. We can just add him as a featured artist.

Do you think you could sort these songs, please? I can't do it myself.

In this page: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/bastion-ost-lyrics.html
These songs: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/darren-korb-build-wall-zias-theme-lyrics....
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/darren-korb-mother-im-here-zulfs-theme-ly...

In this page: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/hades-ost-lyrics.html
This song: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/darren-korb-lament-orpheus-lyrics.html

These songs should be in a page called "Transistor (OST)". I can't create one because all of the songs are already here on LT, so I can't add a new one to create the page. I will add the info later.

Same with these songs. They should be in a page called "Pyre (OST)". I will provide the info later. I added these songs so I would like to have this page as one of my "added artist" please :c (it's just nice to have a little collection in my profile, lol)

All those songs should have Darren Korb as featured artist, but I'll ask someone else later if you don't have the time. Thank you so much for the info!

Best regards!

I sure can, but for now I fear don't have time to do that. You can either ask another Mod (as only we're capable of splitting/merging content) via 'Reporting' thread. Or you can wait for me to do so, but I can't promise it will be anytime soon Sad smile

Thanks for your help, moreover.
