Release id #177727 : Goblin's Messys

As per encouragement from Moloch...

This does not really belong here. It's not a release and personal notes should in general be wiped from the disk before upload, imho.

If personal notes all of a sudden is counted as a release, then there's surely lots of releases to be added!

Is this really a thing now? Uploading disk / sending notes from swappers as an individual release without the actual spread disk. In my opinion, without the actual spread disk the note is taken out of context now. Ohw, wait, the spread disk was already uploaded to the release linked in the comment.

If these notes should indeed be considered an individual release, CSDb staff should consider adding an extra release type / category. That way we can easily include or exclude these notes when using the csdb search engine.

Moderators, if you have not already had the pleasure, please have an internal discussion whether these individual spread disk notes are significant enough for the C64 Scene Database to be included in the CSDb archive. If it is, don't forget adding a release type/category for these notes and spend some time on coming up with some rules for this release type since some notes can be pretty darn personal.

Pretty please!

Agreed.

Those notes are not releases and have absolutely NO place in this DB.

Get rid of this lameness from here. Only possible exception should be if the creator of the text wanted it here and uploaded it themselves.

I agree that this particular note could be wiped. Will do it now. I would argue that many others should stay, however, if they contain vital information about the scene (groups, changes of members etc) as long the note in question is not strictly of private nature (1:1) and has no value as a source of information that is not available anywhere else. If added they should only be available to logged in users, however.

I think personal notes should only stay if they are part of a general, public (spread) note - it was common to add a public note to a spread disk and add personal notes in the end, but that also means that the author meant the note to be public. The personals were mostly rather short anyway in such cases.
