Question, is it possible to turn the Series field into the Series / Publisher field.
The Publisher or in English, Publisher is mentioned on many records, so if you fill it in, you also have more options to filter.
The administrator Dick52 gave me this idea, because a while ago he introduced the Publisher, Melodie der Welt (also known as MdW) to Reeks, see for example #10207643
I did a search on the internet, and from the Publisher Melodie der Welt alone one can find about 3000 records, of course not all of them are on LastDodo, but at least I have already found some.
Here is a photo of Melodie der Welt (MdW)

With Records/CDs we, as publisher, take the label. Melodie der Welt is basically a label.

Where the Melodie der Welt series is concerned, this concerns the entries MdW or Melodie der Welt, which can sometimes be found next to the label in smaller letters on the sound carrier. Perhaps MdW produced or licensed the recordings in those cases.

[edit]
Perhaps this string should be deleted or changed to label. Well, I'm still thinking about it.

Melodie der Welt is clearly a Publisher and has nothing to do with the Label.
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melodie_der_Welt_(Musikverlag)
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musikverlag
The Label in my example is BASF.
A Publisher owns the rights to a particular piece of music or a Song and they usually offer this to BASF, as here
But it can of course also be the case that a record label wants to release the piece of music or a song and requests this from the publisher.
There are really very large publishers who own the rights to tens of thousands of songs or pieces of music.

I personally think that the field needs to be overhauled, so to speak!
I use that field quite a lot with searches etc.
only adding number can only be linked to 1 series, and that no longer counts.
I don't really think the publisher is a series, I think I created it to select it anyway.
Because my experience series really have added value.

I don't think it would be right to rename the series field to Series / Publisher. Publishers indeed own the rights to songs and pieces of music, but that would have to become a new field at track level. You should take into account compilations and compilation albums where multiple publishers are involved. I also wonder what the use is for the average collector. It's nice to filter and search by publishers, but who does that?

I find Dick's idea more interesting: there are many items that you can put in 2 or more series, but unfortunately you only have 1 option to give a number. (for me there is a difference between series and series: series do not have a ranking number; series do. Example: Favorites on purpose is a series according to my definition. They all have the style of a cover in common, but there is no number 1 etc Series do have such a number. Polydor Singles series 2051 is one of them).

So: if it is possible to also put the corresponding number in a field for each added series, that would be a nice addition.

Number in series belongs to the item and says something about the order in the series. However, for Music we have chosen to be able to enter multiple series for the same item. Therefore, the Number in series applies to all series listed for that item.

The discussion shows that Melodie der Welt is in any case not a series. I therefore deleted that series.
