I was just looking at the song "Granada", sung by Pavarotti (and a zillion other singers). Now, in Pavarotti's page, there is an English translation, but on Domingo's page there isn't.EDIT: I wrote it wrong. On Pavarottiìs page there is no English translation, on Domingo's page there is.
Trying to understand how this is dealt on this website, I saw in the FAQ: "If there're multiple artists who performed or covered the song, they should be listed in the "Also performed by" field while adding the song. In such a case, translations would be available for all artists who performed the song."
Okay, but if the original uploader hadn't put anything in that field (as they haven't in the case of José Carreras). Or if there is someone missing. For instance, they don't include Mario Lanza, who famously sang this song. Now, if I, or another user, would like to fill that gap and link to the already available translations ... it's not possible, right? We have to write to the original uploader or bother a moderator? Or is there another way to do this?
And, on the opposite side of the question. I went to Mario Frangoulis page, and "Granada" is not listed among his songs. Although he sings it on every other concert and it's on his CDs too.
Of course, I could add it, but what's the point of adding a song which already exists (under Pavarotti and Domingo and Carreras)? There is no feature to choose from songs already in the database, I would have to add it from scratch. And if I wanted the translations, I would have to do them again or request them again - but they are already on the website.
Can I just copy paste the other person's translation? I suppose not. So what should be done?
(All this of course happens because the FAQs need to be more complete) I just spent about 30 minutes looking in the fora in case somebody else had asked the same question, but I couldn't possibly look at all of them, so at last I gave up. So please forgive me if someone has already asked the same question years ago. Thanks for any heads-up!
