FAQ - How Does Diskaos Works?
The pretty simple basic concept of Diskaos is : Community of Collectors . Following this concept, it is structured to include Collections of all registered users, and a Release may appear as often as it is present in every Collection.
How to upload Releases and Collections (Registered Users)
Look for items inside Diskaos database using the search form on the left. The best results come with category number , exactky as written on the record, or by label or the artist name or title alone, or by Artist name and Title together. (pink floyd wall). You can also search typing artist + title + country together.
If you do not find anything, you can look through Apikey Search (User Menu). If you do not find anything yet, you can ever enter data manually.
If you want to upload the entire collection previously saved in a CSV file, follow the link via CSV upload your collection (User Menu).
See below in each case:
a) COPY from other user's Collections.
You can search on other user's Collections through the Search function on the left, then copy the release in your Collection, changing or adding all the data that you need to modify (e.g. Category, Year, Format, Songs etc...) to make the final Release exactly as the one you have. As we said, there may be multiple copies of the same Release, depending on how many people have it. We therefore recommend that you should copy the one containing more data.
b) Search by QUICK ADD with FAST LOADER.
The search will provide results that you can check to select the right release to add to your collection. Releases must be added one by one.This is not a very fast way but the results are awesome : very often the FAST LOADER will provide results containing data, the pic and all songs of the Release.
c) Uploading Csv / Exell / Openoffice File.
You can upload your whole collection previously stored in a Csv / Excell / Openoffice file HERE. We strongly recommend CSV format and CSVed to edit CSV files! It is an easy and powerful CSV file editor, you can manipulate any CSV file, separated with any separator. You can find it HERE. The file will be checked to be approved or denied anyway, We always will try to change your Collection File in a Diskaos compatible. Uploading on this way is faster, but your Collection will contain only basic information and does not load pics or songs data.You can still complete your work a Release by one through Modify mode
How a new File upload affect collections already listed?
Items already listed will be skipped.
Items not listed will be added.
If listing more than a copy of the same item, only one will be saved. More copies must be saved manually
d) Manual Input.
You can upload Releases with Manual Input. This is certainly the way most slow and laborious, because you have to load and save all the data one by one. But sometimes this can be the only way available.
available Data For Releases on Diskaos (Registered Users and Visitors)
For each Release, as well as all available data sufficient to identify, Diskaos can save very important additional information for all the songs of the Release, including Titles , Lyrics , Songwriters ,Tabs / Chords for Piano / Guitar, time length, a video link, an MP3 demo (no more than 1Mb). So for each Release, the user has a complete set of data. Again, if you load a Release from the Collection of someone else, we recommend you to copy the one containing more data.
Note that in the Songs Page , you can see only data that have been saved : this means that any Player appears, if there is any Mp3 or video link saved, and any Lyric or other data appear, if there is any Lyric or other data saved. But if there are data saved, its windows appears in the Song Page. In the Song Lists available (there are two, one in the Release Page, and one in the Artist Page) you can see icons that indicate what additional information has been loaded.

Copy, Modify ,Adding and Deleting data and Informations with Releases and Artists (Registered Users)
Even if you can copy every Release from other user's Collections, you can't edit or modify any Release that is not yet in your Collection. As we said above, during copy work you can change what you need to make the final Release exactly as the one you have , and when it has been copied in your Collection , you can edit what you need at every time. We therefore recommend that you should copy the one containing more data. Some data that are own of the original Release and owner, will not be copied or suggested (e.g. Rewievs, Media and Cover Condition, or Price)
Sell and Buy in the Diskaos Community (Registered Users)
Users can buy and sell in the community. The way is pretty simple: after you set your currency in your profile:
- if you want to sell a Record simply set to the Record a price. If you want the disc only exposed in your collection, let the price field blank. Diskaos will show Your Price or "Not for Sale" in the Price field.
- If you want to buy a record, contact the seller by clicking on the "Buy!" link existing in the release tab : the site will create for you an email containing every data, and you need only to fill with your questions about shipping costs etc.
Note that in the User's profile there is a Selling data field, where you can set all informations you need to shows your Shipping costs, sales Policies etc.
Note That DISKAOS doesn't earn money on transactions, doesn't makes any control and will not have any kind of responsability on transactions.
Community (Registered Users)
The Diskaos Community section includes Forums and Blogs for registered users. Furthermore, for every song and Release, users can post Comments , Rewiews and Grading. As with any community, it is your responsibility to make a good use of them. Any misuse will be punished by excluding from the site and will be reported to authorities.
Deleting account needs user to delete every item in collection or for sale.
