After reading the Covers thread, I decided to take a look at the Queenopaedia.

In the various discographies, great pains were taken to detail the album/single/release from which the tracks came, yet many of the track don't contain, what is in my opinion equally valuable, information on the song versions. For instance, there are easily four versions of "Flick Of The Wrist", which are different edits from different singles. They aren't all the same and the casual fan may not care, but there are some of us who track these difference and for whom they are important (relatively speaking).

I know it's a work-in-progress, but don't neglect that kind of detail as this vast tome of knowledge gets built.

Thanks for the thoughts. As you mentioned, it is a work-in-progress, but if you see something we might have missed, or something you think should be added, shoot us an e-mail (queenpedia@gmail.com) and we'll gladly fix/add it.

Alternate version information is listed on the individual song pages. We have three listed for Flick of the Wrist at the moment.

Alternate version information is something that we are trying to add, but it just takes time.

As Lester said if you know of more please let us know at the e-mail address provided. It's only with the help of others that the site can become as complete as possible.

What is exactly going to happen with that 'chords' section (there probably will be some chords or so ;) )? It's been empty for quite a time now..

(Erin NOT Pieter here...can't log him off this computer.)

The chords sections will most time just link to other websites where there are chords and tab available for a song. Working on that is a low priority, at the moment. I've been working on the discographies for the individual song pages first. The chords part will get some attention with time, though. :-)

Oh God, load up the flame throwers.

I certainly hope not, P_G. I hope SOME scrutiny will go into verifying that these are indeed the correct chords. And I mean 7ths, 9ths, sharps, flats, etc. as well as just "G-D-A".

Good point. I would usually have said "quit bitching and write something you lazy fucker", but am trying to be less confrontational. Clearly it's not a good idea as I was slightly misunderstood as a result.

Like I said, the song pages are going to link to other sites which have chords and tabs. That info is just added as a side note. There are other sites, such as QueenSongs.info, which are dedicated to tabs, sheet music, etc.

Yes, otherwise I figured you'd be flooded with incorrect versions, that's all.
