see the original ticket http://bugs.musicbrainz.org/ticket/1241
I've been tagging the ones I come across with "unknown year", I've found quite a few - http://musicbrainz.org/show/tag/?tag=unknown%20year&show=artist so it'd be nice if we could just enter the month and day.
Thanks for the link t othis ticket, nikki
How would this be displayed? At the moment a partial is display as YYYY-MM-DD, does MM-DD make sense? If you've only got a month, or only got a day, they could end up displaying the same (MM vs DD) which is confusing.
I like how the Japanese Wikipedia does it ("????" in grey for the year), e.g. the dates in the infoboxes on http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/細井聡司 and http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/中原涼_(歌手)
Oh that's quite nice, thanks for bringing that solution to my attention
This is in review at http://codereview.musicbrainz.org/r/2061/ and on http://test.musicbrainz.org/
Thanks for this!
