It’s not only your job to edit annotations but also to correct lyrics too.
Generally they’re found at the suggestions page at the bottom of the song or in a suggestion on a specific annotation.
When coming across suggestions or annotations to correct a lyric, the best way to handle it is to do the following;
Don’t just assume the person who posted the suggestion is correct — listen for yourself
If you accept a suggestion that changes the lyric on an annotation — don’t include it in the annotation, just delete the text out. That way the user still gains IQ but has no effect on the annotation.
The example below details an occurrence which happens far too often, even though it’s not supposed to work like this, it can anyway. If someone does “explain” the ? or incorrect lyric. Do the following;
Make sure it’s correct
Accept the annotation
Delete the annotation
Correct the lyric in the “edit lyrics” tab
