Who?If you are an artist working with music production, you may request your user account to be connected to your artist entry on VocaDB. Other roles such as illustrator, animator and mixer are also included.
The requirement is that you need to have at least one approved song entry on VocaDB. This can be original song, cover, remix or music PV, as long as it features vocals synthesized with Vocaloid, UTAU, CeVIO, or similar singing synthesizer. We're sorry, but artists with no publicly released songs cannot be verified.
Why?As a verified artist your user account name is displayed on the artist entry page, and vice versa. You also gain access to more privileges regarding your artist entry. You may mark your artist entry as approved, preventing new users from editing that entry. You may also remove tags associated with your entry and provide a highlighted comment.
Edits by verified artists are by default trusted when editing their own entries. For example, as a verified artist you may mark the specific voicebank used without further explaining it - we trust that you know what you're doing. This means less work for both you and the moderation team.
How?You can do this by submitting a verification request on VocaDB. You need to provide some way to prove that you are the artist. The easiest way is to post a tweet saying you want your account verified on VocaDB. Please post a tweet to your user account on VocaDB (instead of your artist page).
A private message (on Twitter, SoundCloud or similar) is possible as well. For example, on Twitter you can send direct message (DM) to @vocadb.
Multiple artist entries (for example, circle or UTAU voicebank) can be connected to the same user account (please mention this when submitting the verification request).
Note that abusing these privileges is strictly forbidden: you may not credit yourself for a song/album unless you really were involved.
