first off—love it. keep up the amazing work. clearly a labor of love and not an easy task.
second off—feature requests!
a) i'm in a household with roommates, so i'd like to keep track of who added what, and
b) i've got friends i'd like to give access without giving away "my" password, and not giving them each others (you know the types of friends who are always telling you (and with great accuracy) what music to get?)
really basic. just the columns in home view (which will be getting multi-users, right?).
3) basic ui streamlining—
give us the option to once we've added an artist, to view that artist's page instead of the homepage.
rationale: generally when adding an artist, we're thinking of that artist, probably because we have certain album(s) in mind
AND the number of albums for an artist is generally way less than the number of artists we have (so—faster page loads)
speaking of which…
4) optimizations and tweaks
can't speak with much accuracy here, other than sickbeard (which is like the college-age older brother to our toddler here) seems to be doing a LOT more a LOT faster,
which probably includes
5) ajax-y goodness.
6) more data "sources" (like freedb and wikipedia)
7) more nzb sources (like newzbin.com)
way advanced: associated/related acts
like, for example, i put in non-alive cab for pretty, i'd like to see related band the mail service, gen bibbard, and high-school linebacker all show up as quick adds
9) ep's! singles! singles+b-sides!
"@steve1977 - it's definitely the foreign artists. I've been meaning to change this for a while so I think I'll hammer that out today. I'm also going to include compilations, EPs, singles, etc. I also really want to include remixes & covers somehow - but I'm not really sure how I'm going to do this yet. Oh, and music videos would be cool"
what about another "column" that just says what it is? i know this is messy, but, i actually flag my stuff in itunes like this so i know just how complete i am. (best of albums, live albums, singles, ep's)
a nerd term from me, but i will actually hunt and peck all the "extra" (itunes exclusives, amazon exclusives, target exclusives, japan-only, australia-only) tracks so that i have a super-duper complete beyond complete album (the uber-geek collector)
11) "prefer flac over mp3" option
love that we can get both, but would love to get this
12) lame encoding
to go hand in hand with (11)
13) other art sources
(or roll your own searches)
15) track renaming
15) management, a-la sickbeard
(gets it and knows it, and knows how complete it is)
18) "mobile" site detection and css (for those of us on tiny screens)
19) (and to go along with that, some way of integrating something like shazaam—we listen to an artist and BAM—they're in there)
obviously, some are much easier than others—but we'll trust your slick judgment to know what's what.
3) question: how do we know what version we're on? i know both the cpotato and the sbeard have ways of showing us what version they're running…
