Should i use the russian track name for the english label? Or do i use the english transcription?
Most YouTube uses the english transcriptions while the streaming services themself uses the russian labels
Problem solved, found a Spotify version with transliterations: https://open.spotify.com/album/5JWf64ShcccK9wgFqnZHUR
Do you know how to enable copy and paste on the Spotify website so copying the names arent so tedious?
So what do i use for the title (P1476) of the tracks? The songs still use their native Russian labels in other databases
For Russian songs with titles written in Cyrillic that's what I would use: The original title written in its original language and script.
I asked the experts that myself a while back and the answer I got was:
- Use the "official" (sourceable) English translation if one exists. If not, then...
- ...use the official transliteration if one exists. If not, then...
- ...leave blank. Never use Cyrillic (or any other non-latin script) in English labels (even if the Russians sometimes use Latin in their labels, it's not an example to be followed).
If all the english labels are blank then anytime you use the items you can only see the QID. This makes the items much harder to use and much easier to accidently use the wrong item in statements
If you only have English in your babelbox that is certainly the case, yes.
For something else, would you consider Art Track (Q105967840) to be a role or a quality?
I lean towards quality
Do you think the use of remix of (P9810) on Champion Pt.ll (Inst.) (Q122538292) was warranted? I forgot how instrumentals of vocal songs are supposed to be done
Unless it's explicitly stated somewhere that it's an "instrumental remix" or something to that effect, I wouldn't use "remix of" in this case. In my opinion it's enough to have both tracks point to the same composition and use the P31 to indicate which is vocal and which is instrumental.
Do we need a property to link instrumental tracks to their vocal counterparts?
I don't see the need for a property really? They are both linked to the same composition, so you can already query for all recordings of Song A by Artist B on Release C.
Thoughts on the qualifiers i used here? Is this ideal?
Thoughts on the item i made? Q121825641
Thoughts on the qualifiers: I've stopped adding P1433 statements on tracks since they are redundant (the relationship is handled by the tracklist on the release).
Thoughts on Q121825641: 1) Conflation is not the same as refers to different subject is it? 2) Couldn't this be handled just as well by adding "identifier refers to multiple artists by the same name" as an alias to conflation ?
If i cant find the date a music video came out is it okay if i use the date for when the music video was uploaded to YouTube? Only if the video was uploaded by the record label or artist themself of course
I guess? Maybe use a reference like inferred from to indicate to other editors how you came up with it, I imagine this date could potentially be off by decades in some cases (i.e. pre internet music videos).

Know Your Meme ID (P6760)
Shouldn't the identifier be used on the item for the track instead?
You probably know better than me, those articles are about so many things. Feel free to place it where so you see fit!
