Spring Clean (Remove empty Artists)

Tue May 29, 2018 3:26 pm

Time to have a bit of a tidy up. Have quite a large list of artists with zero information, example (http://www.theaudiodb.com/artist/147930) and will be removing then over the next few weeks.

Great please go ahead and use your best judgement. Most will be people adding the wrong artist by mistake so fine to remove.

I wrote a little helper page for this:

http://www.theaudiodb.com/missing.php

All need to be checked manually really as some are legitimate.

EDIT: It lists all artists without a description in English, German, French or Italian AND missing thumb or fanart artwork.

Processed about 100 artists, now down to 1,600 :D

Basically I am deleting any artist with no artwork or info, and filling in any artists that have something uploaded like music videos or a logo.

Basically been doing the same thing from a list ive been adding to for a while (about 150 entries), if the entry has zero data at all, then ive deleted it. anything with something there ive left or added to. There are a few contributors doing a great job adding new artists with all fanart and data, lets hope it encourages others to do the same.
