Thread Name: How to Correct Songs in Mudcat Database
Subject: RE: How to Correct Songs in Mudcat Database
Hi, Betsy -
If there's already a thread on the song, post the lyrics there. If not, start a new thread and post the correct lyrics.
If it's just a little correction or adding songwriter attribution, you can post a message in our Attribution PermaThread. There's a PermaThread Index in the dropdown menu at the top of the list of threads).
The Digital Tradition Folk Song Database gets updated every year or so, and the updating process is complicated. The last update was finished several months ago, but now it has been delayed by a programming holdup. So, yeah, updating the Digital Tradition isn't a speedy process.
If you post a message, we'll do our best to see that it gets crossindexed to the Digital Tradition entry immediately. If it isn't crossindexed within a day or two after you posted it, send me a reminder by Personal Message (Mudcat members), or by e-mail.
