but I can't ^^;
(The system wouldn't let me change the name in the field if the new artist wasn't already in the database)
which field? I just changed the artist field to make sure it wasn't that.
something's wrong with the comments, they sometimes get kind of stuck and don't show after you post them
As an editor, I can change the artist and a title of a song, but the artist must already exist. If I just changed the artist name to "Park Sang Joon", when I hit save, that field would be highlighted in red and an error
Artist: found no valid post with that title.
would appear. So I uploaded This song will be deleted in order to create the artist page for Park Sang Joon. (Is there a way to create an artist without songs?)
I can delete my own translations, but I can't delete any original lyrics, not even the ones I submitted myself. (There is no Delete button where it should be)
You can't delete a song as it will cause removal of all related translation. It was done to prevent translations loss.
Also there's no way to create a new artist without songs besides the workaround you've used.
There is another workaround if you have editor powers. You can take a random songless artist and rename it. Or you can upload a song from another artist but labeled with a different name, and then move the song to its correct place.
Maybe I should've chosen the first one. I think that I've tampered with someone's content page. ^^;
Also, out of curiosity: can admins edit the "submitted by" info? Lately I found some translations that were uploaded like they were the actual songs, so I had to move upload them correctly under my account. (and edit the original lyrics in)
In all of this examples I edited the original lyrics. The details are written in the "Submitter's comment" or "Author comment" field. Write back if you don't understand something.
Also, https://lyricstranslate.com/en/node/455335 should be in my account (it was originally a duplicated artist some other user uploaded... and then I recycled for Varya Panina)
Could someone edit the "submitted by" info for the links in the post above? And also for https://lyricstranslate.com/en/shima-uta-%E5%B3%B6%E6%AD%8C-shima-uta.html
I changed this one: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/shima-uta-%E5%B3%B6%E6%AD%8C-shima-uta.html
and this one -> https://lyricstranslate.com/en/boa-only-one-lyrics.html
When did you become a mod? Congratulations!
lol not long ago...I'm keeping a low profile cos I don't want to mess anything up xD
A wise decision, then xDD
I just want you to set them to Guest, Layla and myself, respectively. (the transliterations have the same author as the original lyrics).
Erm... didn't Lumi post here?
Yes she did you're not hallucinating xD
OK I've updated them all, I hope everything is to your satisfaction
Ah... Nice to know I'm not crazy... yet xD
Will do, missus Thank you

I'm just playing along with your delusions
In my spirit of recycling my own forum threads, I need to ask moderators a favour here.
