Submitting metadaya errors with MusicBrainz Metadata Plugin?

EAC has a little button for submitting metadata updates to freedb (which may not be working as of yesterday). I've relied upon the feature for years, as some cannot type, and few capitalize correctly.

In EAC, I'm not seeing the same option for MusicBrainz, and there are a LOT of errors in their database. Am I missing something, or are we stuck with whatever the MusicBrainz authors come up with?

Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful day!

The MusicBrainz metadata plugin doesn't have an option to submit metadata.

MusicBrainz requires that you create an account to submit edits.

So editing is something done in a completely separate application (browser-based, I assume), and not something done from EAC?

Yes I meant the EAC MusicBrainz metadata plugin cannot submit additions or changes but that EAC was not the only option to submit corrections the database.

Yes, thank you. I followed your link and created an account. Navigating the database appears overwhelming at first blush. Trying to find the first disc of Claude-Michel Schönberg's 1987 Les Misérables (Original Broadway Cast Recording), I had over 400,000 entries to sort through. That's not going to work for me. It may take considerable effort to contribute in any meaningful way.

Just noticed I mistyped metadata. Perhaps I've nothing to add, after all!

Directly searching for "Les Misérables (Original Broadway Cast Recording)" gets me a result on the first page:
