Hi there!

While trying to get some music dvds profiles consistent, I noticed there seems to be no standardized way in the use of colons and hyphens in titles.
In most profiles, artist and title are separated by a colon (e.g. "Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band: Live in Barcelona"), yet in many other profiles, a hypen is used (e.g. "Genesis - Live at Wembley Stadium"). The contribution rules are ambiguous here. I think the use of colons is to be preferred because the artist's name is not part of the title.
How to clarify this matter? What's your oppinion about it?


Bye.

As Tracer said, the ':' is correct by the Rules (the - is most common from older profiles before the Rule about : came into force).

Of course if the cover actuall has a '-' on it then you should use that, the ':' separator is for separating two parts of a "DVD name" when there is no actual separator printed on the cover.
It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong
