      Description

      I call it a bug as it's a regression from where we were auto-redirected to entities for 1 result searches.

      Some people don't like this behaviour and some other need it.*

      So this could be a new setting in preferences page http://musicbrainz.org/account/preferences for everyone be happy.

      This feature was needed and coded(MBS-183).
      This feature was later removed (MBS-1507).
      I filed a regression ticket (MBS-2874).
      Now this ticket tries to keep both worlds happy together.

      • The former redirect code suited those people, so there is no need for more development or fixing on it.

      Some simple illustrative examples of former redirects :
      http://musicbrainz.org/search?type=release_group&query=ajico
      http://musicbrainz.org/search?type=artist&query=ajico
      http://musicbrainz.org/search?type=artist&query=uua
      http://musicbrainz.org/search?type=artist&query=bjc
      http://musicbrainz.org/search?type=artist&query=onmyoza
      etc.
