Would it be possible to automatically append the decade that an album was released in to the genre? This would mean an album that was released between 1980 and 1989, it would be labeled as 80s, something between 1990 and 1999 would be labeled as 90s, etc.
For example, something with a year field of "1989" would have ";80s" added to the end of the genre string, "1992" would have ";90s", "2000" would get ";2000s", and so on. I've been writing these in automatically, but it would be a lot easier to have something that would populate them automatically. (Semicolons are being used as separators for multiple tags)

PS. I'm not sure what you mean by append the decade. Is this the %year% field? If so then the action is good to go. If not replace %year% with %decade% if that's where you stored the tag. Try this on a couple of test files first and come back to me if you have any problems.
No problem. Just make sure you run that once. But to be on the safe side use a filter which will filter any %genre% the only contains letters, numbers and spaces which basically means anything without a '-' in them.
