OK: these songs have been replaced with original MODs:
ok3an0s-dawn delusions.mod

... but not this one, because it was already a MOD here:

Tech is game music. It is the theme of Tech: The Race Against the Targanoids. You can compare with this recording on YouTube.

Netpoet has two songs called "Mint Moon", of different lengths: Mint moon, Mint Moon. What is the story? Should they be distinguished in some way?

Mint Moon seems to cut off abruptly. The longer version fades out and seems more complete. The shorter version should have been rejected as a dupe when it was uploaded 8 years ago (vs 14 years for the longer version) but I guess it was missed. I've marked it as a dupe now.

I Know (Acidline's House of Love Remix) is titled "I Know Acidline's House of Love Remix", and credited to "Hybrid".
This is actually a remix (with commercial samples) of the track "I Know" by the excellent British electronic-orchestral band Hybrid. Therefore:
1. Should "Hybrid" be the artist in this case? If we have a song by X, remixed by Y, Nectarine usually puts it under artist Y, even though a commercial release might call it "ABC (Y Remix)" by artist X.
2. If Acidline is the artist -- well, didn't he ask us to remove all his stuff, years ago?

Another apparent miscategorisation is the "artist" called Out run: Out run
There are three unrequestable songs (two rejected and one duplicate). They come from the game Out Run but that isn't an artist name.

1. Not given the way we do things, correct.
2. Don't know if he is, and yes.

The song isn't rated very highly, and the artist Hybrid notes that they aren't demoscene related, so my inclination is to reject the song. I've done that and marked Hybrid as rejected so new songs cannot be attributed to them.

If another admin feels differently about the song itself (not the attributed artist) they can make changes.

Title of the song is actually "Lemon_Groovy", and AMP calls it just "Groovy". I'm not sure what to do any more. But, on Demozoo I find a link to the same mod but with different sample text and a different title. I will defer to the demozoo linked one and rename the song to "Groovy Lemon".

OK, OK, finally got off my arse. This might be the rare case of somebody using two very similar artist names, but I am pretty sure it is not. Consider: flag Nik-O (Oleg Nikitin) ("Nik-O") and flag n1k-o (Oleg Nikitin) ("n1k-o"). These are both marked as aliases of flag nq (Oleg Nikitin) ("nq"). I'm tired of typing artist tags. Must anything be done? Do fucking keep me informed, won't you. (P.S. When I write so many tags, I'd love a preview button. Now I am going to hit Submit and hope that my message is readable. Feature request!)

Email is working fine for me. I received email notification of all the recent posts in this thread.

Mirrorbird: what do you think we should do about the nq thing?
