More new features on the way!

Hey Everyone,

Glad to say that coding is again underway and some great new features and much needed tweaks are in progress. Without going into too much detail here's a taste of what is coming:

1) Improvements to the player - album lists for categorising tracks and reducing the number of tracks that appear in the player at a given time. An 'album' can be an album in the traditional sense or a grouping of your tracks by genre, age, theme etc. Included in this feature will be the ability to add album art so you will have more media rich experience.

2) Facebook player integration: visitors to your artist page will be able to 'like' individual tracks and have them appear on their Wall in a player with a link back to your artist page. This will open up your music to a much larger audience and should help the site to grow.

3) Genres - for a long time the site has been restricted in terms of the number of genres and sub genres it offers. This will soon be a thing of the past as we will be increasing the number of genres and sub genres to match the demands of our users.

4) Charts - in addition to the Top 100 we will have an annual billboard of the highest ranked tracks per genre.

5) Genre Charts - each genre will have it's own dynamic charts as well as an annual billboard.

6) Newsfeed Improvements - the artist newsfeed will be completely upgraded so that it features updates on any comments or reviews received as well as updates on artists you might be following (eg. BandABC has just released a new track called NEWTRACK). This will help users to keep up to speed on artists they like and will help tracks not to get lost. This will also allow users to see what the bands the like 'like' etc.

7) Latest Tracks - a major improvement is on the way for this that will restrict the number of tracks an artist can have appear in the latest uploads to one in a 24hr period. This will eliminate the problem of a new artist uploading 20 tracks and taking over the entire list. ALSO, we will be including a 'see more' function that will allow you to scroll through the latest uploads (maybe back 100 tracks).

8) Uploads - artists will have a check box that will allow them to choose whether a track appears in the latest tracks list or not. This same check box will be used to choose which track of multiple uploads is the one that appears in a 24hr period.

9) Following/Followed By - allow a 'see more' function that allows you to see all the artists on the lists.

10) Tracks Comments - you will be able to get email updates when comments are made on your track (if you want)

11) Newsletter - we'll be bringing out a new media rich newsletter than will include artist specific information such as the number of page views, comments received, votes on tracks, highest chart positions etc and information of any competitions or site news etc. This will be an opt-in/out monthly feature so those who don't want anything won't get it. The idea is to include as much information in it that is important to individual artists in the hope that we can keep new members on board and using the site.

12) Lot's on little bugs have been fixed over the past week or so but if you recognise anything that is still not working as it should please let us know!

There are other bits and pieces on the way too but they will be in the next phase (after this one). Some biggies in the pipeline include the reintroductoin of VIP memberships and new features that go with that (eg customisable artist pages etc). More on this after we get the current list of upgrades out of the way!
