There's already a forum for that.

I think it would be nice to include the genre tag next to band names on individual artist pages, possibly even filling in the genre on unlisted bands. There's enough dead space next to the band name on each row.

Ah, sweet. And I hadn't thought about corporate entities - that addition of N/A for them sounds good too.

I'd probably vote in favour of adding the extra two options of "unknown" and "other" now, as the lion's share of artists probably don't have enough info in their bio (I'd imagine) to distinguish why they had the "unknown/other" gender category, though I can understand wanting to start off with a few artists already with those new categories.


Finally done.

Does anyone think we should bump up the points required for each rank? Imo I feel recently there's been more stuff that users can edit. I know they were bumped up when we upgraded to v2, with the artists and label info, but now we have album versions/formats.

Also, I never really gave it a thought before, but I feel like there's no difference between a metal demon/freak, at least according to the access info. This is all of the info that's there right now in the help page, unless one's a typo.

    Only members with a rank of Metal freak or higher can update certain fields: artist aliases, label names, album titles.
    Only members with a rank of Metal freak or higher can delete album tracks, change categories of submitted reports, and ignore discography locks.


Versions have been around for years now... The ranks are fine as is. There's no difference in permissions between freak and demon. Not every rank comes with new abilities.

It would be cool if there was an added feature be able to comment on peoples' reviews, like below each review there could be a "comments" link that can be expanded or not (so that it doesn't take extra space if you don't want to see them). It would be awesome though because so many shitty and unfair reviews could be responded to. Plus it could add an interactive element to the site. Idk or maybe this is a terrible idea haha but damn some people write stupid shit. Apologies if I posted this is in the wrong place.


So, a feature to create drama? Hell no.

I haven't received any approval/rejection emails since 31st October although a few entries I've made have been approved/rejected since then. I don't think I've made any changes to my account and the Receive email notifications for submission approvals/rejections? box in my settings is still checked. Nothing in my spam folder either? Something I've done or a bug of some kind? Or did you just discontinue them?

I have exactly the same problem as you. No acceptance/rejection e-mails since the last seven or five days, althrough I can read the reasos for rejction on the drafts of rejectedd bands.

Any JSON stream from the database possible to integrate ?

'a while ago' I made some app that parsed the main site php, but now I am looking for direct API to the database...

In the Upcoming album's list the same album is listed multiple times by the same band if there are multiple formats (CD, Cassette). If the links will be different because of the format, might as well show the format in the table.
For example, for May 14, 2021: Band: Dødsferd, Album: Skotos is listed 3 times.

While browsing through links, I came across this release, which does not seem to feature the "previous/next release" section at all. One of the bands, Totenkopf Standarten, does not have any releases other than this split, so perhaps that has something to do with it.

Anyone dealing with the increased amount of these errors recently?

For the last 3-4 days, the same problems appears at least once per 5-8 clicks on any link on the site. Different browsers, different computers - same problem. The "refresh" button has been used very often recently....
