There have been a few changes over the weekend to the way submissions are moderated. As this will impact on the way submissions are handled, I thought it would be a good idea to let everyone know.
First up, we have added a new feature that lets mod’s moderate by style. This means that you are more likely to get a moderator who knows about a certain style and is able to offer more knowledge to ensure your submission is correct. In order that this works properly, it is important choose a correct style or styles when submitting your release. Note that this feature will make it easier to spot submissions with incorrect styles, so please choose carefully. Note as well that the style system is under review, as I am aware that there are several styles that are not yet included in the dropdown. Please use the nearest correct style or combinations of styles you can find in the meantime.
Secondly, we have added a mod option to see just newbie or beginner submissions. This will hopefully improve the waiting time for new submitters and help them get into the Discogs system quicker. We have also upped the submission limit from one to three submissions for new users. We will continue to try to find ways to help new submitters make correct submissions.
