I'm not sure where to put this topic.

Multiple guests are changing genres to blank, changing record labels, changing release dates, etc. I check Google (iTunes, Spotify, Wikipedia) and clearly the changes are invalid. The guests have submitted the changes now 3 times that I know of.

It's very frustrating and floods the music queue, what are we to do and can we block people from submitting invalid changes?

Thanks for reporting, this is the correct way to report them.

I've seen these invalid submissions also. Indeed, very frustrating. It looks like one single user. I'm working on a fix for this.

Thumbs up for validating these submissions in the review queue.

I have run into this situation several times and the problem arises when some fine guests seem not to understand that some older music has been released, then re-released and then remastered & re-released; this confusion is further compounded by releases on different continents by several different record labels. I browsed through the Beatles map to see what was done about their many mutliples of releases and re-releases and I was surprised and relieved to see that only the first release of any album was listed unless it was released under a different or an amended album title.
