Who are the Lyrics Curators? How can I become one?
Lyrics Curators are the most passionate and active community members, selected on the merit of their contributions.
They have been spotted for the high quality of their transcribed lyrics, for the high commitment into the Musixmatch mission (build the world's largest lyrics catalogue) and for the interactions with other community members.
This includes providing feedback to other contributors, participating in Slack discussions, helping mentor new users, and encouraging great content.
You can spot them by looking for the curator label on their profile on the Musixmatch website.
Lyrics Curator privileges:
- you ask us to
- we get a high number of complaints
- you’ve been inactive for too long
- or you simply aren’t following the guidelines
Things we encourage lyrics curators to do:
- Consistently contributing high-quality lyrics
• Post new lyrics when a song drops, add old songs we’re missing, or correct lyrics.
• Leading, inspiring, and mentoring other contributors
• Creating new initiatives on the Forum.
