Merging Bands/ Artists into one listing
Merge multiple listings of the same artist due to misspelling or typos
I released a feature called ‘Aliases’ a couple of weeks ago that helps solve this. We can now set ‘Aliases’ for bands, locations, and venues behind the scenes. For example, the official spelling is “blink-182”, but a lot of people enter it as “Blink 182”, which caused there to be duplicate listings. Now the “blink-182” listing has an alias of “Blink 182” (amongst others), so any time somebody enters “Blink 182” it’ll automatically get corrected and applied to “blink-182”. This works for Locations (“Portland, OR” vs “Portland, Oregon”) and Venues as well.
You can email me a list of aliases to be entered to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the ‘Report Issue’ link in the site navigation.
