Henceforth, the only titles added to the database will be those submitted using the following facility:

/submit

Don't get carried away as the code is brand new and it's bound to have glitches so just add a few for now. And please let me know what you think.

To submit a new SA-CD for listing on this site, send an email with full details
together with the cover image (as an attachment) to submit@SA-CD.net

Will that facility continue to be supported?

No. After testing of the new facility, a link will be added to the menu above and all references to submit@sa-cd.net will be removed.

I processed the 4 additions that came in overnight. You'll now note "Submitted by ..." after the title details.

Just a note about cover images. While I do require at least the front cover and at least 200x200 pixels, this doesn't have to be a scan of your own. It could come from the label web site, vendor site etc. I generally look around for the best one to use and often upgrade it later when I find a better one. So whatever is easiest for you.

Thanks to those who have participated so far. I'm sure everyone here appreciates your efforts.

While the "Submit" function has been up and running for a few days now, all new submissions so far are from users, with none from recording companies.

Many of these submissions concern japan-only releases, by companies which are probably not aware that this site exists.

I'm sure BIS or Chandos releases will be notified by the labels.

Concerning releases by audiophile labels such as Mobile Fidelity or Analogue Productions, these are announced a long time in advance, with no precise or reliable release date (and no shopping link except for the "house shop"), so it's not clear when it's the best time to add them here.

zeus, how do I complete the incomplete sa-cd submission I started last night? I can't seem to edit any fields now. I also can't resubmit this title--Ella Fitzgerald, Like Someone in Love (Analogue Productions)--using the same UPC.

What if there's no barcode available on the SACD packaging? Can it still be submitted?

I need to add an edit facility for existing/partial submissions but haven't got around to it yet. In the meantime I deleted the entry in question.

Thanks.

Not at this time. These are generally samplers, promotional discs and not something I'm inclined to add here.

Why don't the major companies submit new titles now? BIS hasn't listed the new Dvorak 7th, DaCapo hasn't listed the Langaard Quartets, etc. I really don't think this new submission format is going to work.
