Override artist case rules to enforce canonical spelling [was: Fix OST/O.S.T.]
As discussed previously...

Adding every artist name would not scale, so I want to solve this alongside the canonical artist rule. I think I could add a checkbox to the rule saying "if the artist is canonically correct, ignore the case rule".
That said, OST are an interesting one! http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=OST&type=artist&method=indexed
Could you add this as a new idea? The same fix can also be applied to album and track names.
Firstly ... apologies if this has been suggested already
Could there be an option to ignore case compliance for a particular artist or album when it is flagged to be fixed?
For example ZZ Top is permanently flagged to be fixed to change to Zz Top, if the fix is applied it's then rescanned and flagged to be changed back to ZZ Top
It would also be handy for some albums like Van Halen's OU812 which gets flagged to be changed to Ou812
I was used to put OST to the Album Name, however this is just wrong. A soundtrack album has just a regular name and should be marked as "Soundtrack" simply by the Genre tag.
Added 3 votes to this Suggestion. Manual override to say an album is good or specific fields would be great. Going through 6,000+ albums. Some of them are just too rare so nothing will be found. but would like to get them out of the way so they don't confuse me.
Nick, sounds a bit like... http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1928497-ignore-compliance-for-certain-albums (with the ability to ignore a specific aspect of compliance, rather than all compliance).

Rather than trying to fully-automate (admirable, but frequently doomed), would it be possible to allow manually flagging an individual field as correct, even if it doesn't conform to bliss rules?
Thus bliss would ignore infractions where these are explicitly required, useful mainly for artist, album and title, I would imagine.
Thanks for adding this!
