Definitive list of DLA errors

It would probably be a better idea to have dynamic scripts rather than static HTML pages, if there are no dynamic scripts.  It's not 1997 anymore.

OK, thanks all for the help. The band-country pages are a disaster and we'll fix those as soon as we can.

Iconoclast, if you can write the script, that would be great. I'd rather be writing reviews. If not, I guess that one waits, eh?

I'll list all the bands of the DLA by continent and country, and post it here, that'll fix some things. But I can't draw flags  :)


edit: In progress. Will be here later today.

Actually, I probably will be able to script after this semester ends (starting in early May).  I could probably code it using MySQL or whatever DBMS software you have if doing so is worthwhile, so the bands, tracklists, and reviews and such are stored in a database.  It'd be easier to add in new bands and reviews that way.  I don't know what's feasible, though.

I prefer coding in Ruby; can ANUS's CGI handle that?  I don't really like Python and PHP, and I'd rather not mess with Perl if I have to (and I've never coded with it anyways).

The pages are all static HTML, right?  I've always thought they were, since I remember finding out-of-date pages from when the band pages moved to different directories, as well as having some review pages having copyright information of the previous year.  However, now I see that all the copyright notices are current.

bump : added flags and underline for titles so it's less of a mess.

On this list are both included bands that have been forgotten in the "Map" pages (I didn't specify which ones on this list, just added them), and bands that weren't even on the DLA homepage (I noted when it was the case).

I wanted to include all the links in BBCode as well so you'd just have to change the "[" and "]" into "<" and ">" for HTML code, but I gave up.

Clicking Sort Vokter in the DLA only gets you to "404 Lost in the ANUS", but only if you're in the black metal section.
The link points to http://www.anus.com/metal/sortvokter instead of http://www.anus.com/metal/sort_vokter which is correct.

Most of the links on the Necrovore page in the Neoclassical section are no longer valid.

Prozak, if you still want me to code the DLA content management system I'll do it.... but I'd prefer to code it in ruby if that's possible, otherwise I'll do it in PHP...

That way, there will be no incorrect links, changing the way DLA works would be trivial, and adding bands and review would be way easier, so I think DLA would benefit.

"Britain" isnt a country in the uk, do you mean England?

My Bloody Valentine are from the republic of Ireland, which isn't in the uk.

All the others are English bands. Do English culture a favour and give them their due credit. don't call them british or credit their achievements to the uk.

Besides, if Texas and Quebec deserve to be mentioned as separate entities (transcendent of modern nation-state borders) surely England does too?


Calm down  :) As I said I followed the patterns of ANUS' presentation ; that means that I didn't change the organisation to my convenience. Go to the "Map" pages in the DLA and you'll see that I just followed the patterns that the ANUS staff decided to use to name countries and nations. England and Ireland probably need a separate space of their own, but it's not me who decides how this place should look like.

In general I followed the flags used in the reviews, although I often verified that the band was really from that country in case there were errors.

One of the only bands I wasn't sure of was Cryptopsy, for example, I didn't know whether they were from Québec or AIDSland but as there was a AIDSland flag I let it in AIDSland ; and I was waiting for admin to anwser my post to mention it.

Relax. I'm not for melting-pots.

They are from Québec.

Ok, I made the correction on the list.

Outside of Québec/AIDSland geography and the UK/England/Wales/Scotland/Ireland problem, I think the rest should be fine.  :P

DBC is also from there -- I moved them for you.
Thanks for doing all that, by the way.
