Did you guys increase the maximum file size for photos? When did this happen?

Concurrently with the server upgrade accompanied by the maintenance downtime a month or two back.

Hey guys, awesome website! Only one suggestion: is it possible to mention which are new releases and which are reissues in the upcoming releases section (for example adding an extra column to specify this)? Cheers, David.

For about a month now I've found that the rapidly increasing size of my music collection has caused me to get a lot of songs stuck in my head where I know what the lyrics are but I can't figure out which band it is. I wish that the advanced search function was able to narrow a search down to releases in my collection.

The advanced search allows you to search for songs based on the lyrics and using filters as explained on the advanced search narrows your search down.
Example:
"I am the Wizard" gives you 268 matches while
"I+am+the+wizard" gives you 31.
The first one searches for all lyrics that include those 4 words in random places, while the latter searches for that exact phrase.
Hope that helps for now ;)

That certainly did help, thank you!

MA's standard for country names is the ISO, which still uses the old name for now. Once it's updated there, remind us again.

Not the first time, but sometimes the default setting in a report has the point-awarding box unchecked - 90 to 10 ratio, I dare say. I unintentionally end up closing the report without giving the user the point they've earned. Does anyone else have the same issue?
E.g. https://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/665209

Maybe this has been asked before a few times, but is there any way we can have a checkbox we can tick if we don't want to see reissues in the "upcoming releases" section?

If one delete his/her account permanently, the username will become "~Guest #", but in reports with attention requested, the name is not "hidden". I just found this case here: https://www.metal-archives.com/report/view/id/632456

It's highly possible that not much can be done about that... but I don't know anything about how the attention request feature was programmed. I don't know what happens if you request attention from someone who later changes their name. The deleted username is also still visible on the forum until you open the thread... there's an example of this on the 3rd page of S&C. But I doubt a username alone is the biggest concern, especially a name like that which doesn't give away any personal info.

The FAQ regarding this matter should be revised, as pointed out a while ago by GuardAwakening. See the 4th question: https://www.metal-archives.com/content/faq

The max sizes of band logo and photo are doubled (100k and 200k) now, but for label logo is still 40k, can't that extand a little more (50k)?
