    ETA on adding of new songs/artists/albums?

    I seem to remember reading in the forums that the LastFM staff were not adding new artists or albums to the available music at this time (obviously until some of the worst bugs were ironed out, so that the music could run on flat bugs). Do you have an ETA on when you'll be able to begin adding new material again? Where do I file suggestions or requests? Thanks.

  • You gotta wait till the MusicBrainz integration is done. When will that be? Who knows.

    Err, no... We were waiting for the streamer to be moved. Now the importer is running again.

    Doesn't "The Importer" sound really cool? is that just me? just imagine it on a film trailer.. "This time, THE IMPORTER IS BACK FOR REVENGE"

    I'll get my coat.

    As long as the importer doesn't turn tracks inside out...

  • so...is there a log file of what the importer is importing or ....

    one day I know we'll be able to find out what new music has been added...until then I guess I'll wait patiently

    The Importer sounds kind of like a boring business title to me.
    "Yeah, I import urinal cakes from Guatamala. They're the king of Urinal cakes and I’m THE IMPORTER."
    ...gross

    Anyway, will there be a way to request new artists and tracks?

    It'd be awesome but if you guys get sick of the bellyaching now imagine how bad it will be when people start requesting music then have to wait a few weeks for it to show up on the radio.

    All comments reflect the views of the poster and not of last.fm or it's management.

    ACtually that would be pretty cool if last.fm could export data about music artists and such for use with other webservices, rather than just user data...

    Such as RSS feeds of artist top tracks and weekly listens and whatnot, but I guess that my suggestion belongs elsewhere

    EDIT: After actually checking, it seems I'm one stepbehind. It is already available..

    Yes, it would be great if when you search for an artist, and LastFM doesn't have him or her, the screen says so and there's a little checkbox with "Suggest This Artist" next to it, and the same for albums.

    Along the same lines, I would love to be notified when a particular album was added to the Artist's profile. I've been going through my collection and tagging albums I own. I know we're waiting for MB integration so with many albums it's just a matter of time that they'll show up here. A method to indicate to be notified of artists' recently added albums would be super.

    Mmm, I have asked for this in the past, not just specifically for an artist (you could have that as well) but a page where you could see what music has been added since the last time you looked. Some sort of timestamp on them would be great; when I used to look at the old music page artists I would listen to would be hidden amongst a load of artists I had never heard of and as they didn't ring any bells it was kinda hard to remember whether I had already looked at them.

    I don't advocate violence, insanity, alcohol or drugs to anyone; but they've always worked for me.

    It would be quite good if you could see immediately which of an artists tracks were available to stream too, while I'm thinking about it.

    Admins, do you have any plans to implement any of this soon?

    We're certainly thinking about a "recently added music" page again.

    That would be fantastic! Looking forward to MusicBrainz integration as well!

    How 'recently' would the recently added music page be though, and how often would it be updated? And where do you get the music you put on the streams from?

    And how will requests for added music be dealt with please? May I suggest a button to replace 'This track is not yet streamable' with 'Request track for streaming'. My idea is that when there have been at least ten requests from separate users, it is added to a moderators "currently searching for music to stream" page (or something like that, a streaming waiting list) to give them some time and to stop hassle from impatient users. When it is found it is added by the moderators for streaming. Perhaps when you click on 'Request for streaming' on a track page you get the option to receive a 'track ready for streaming' message in your in-box, or something like that.

    Just a suggestion. If there is some kind of moderation system for streaming then the songs that most people want to hear would get added, not just what you want us to hear.

    Feedback is good. Thanks!

    YES to everything SideFlower says. Users like to feel that they have as much control as possible, even within the draconian RIAA restrictions. This would help!
