      Description

      On the Artist Credits page the example for “Game Over” is out of date and does not comport with the current best practices that I’ve seen editors using.

      Currently the example is:

      But it should be:

      When giving a list of artists it should be ended with a closing joining item like “&” or “and” or whatever is appropriate for the given locale of the release between the last two of a set.

      Also, when dealing with an item like “Alice & Bob feat. Charlie & Dave”, each part before and after the featured/with part should be treated as it’s own list independent of the other.

      • A feat. B
      • A & B feat. C
      • A feat. B & C
      • A feat. B, C & D
      • A, B & C feat. D, E & F
      • A & B feat. C, D & E
      • A, B & C feat. D
