PostSubject: Filtering discogs releases on my site   Wed May 13, 2009 12:16 pm

Hi, I want to introduce you a testing version of my new site based on Discogs data which I built to provide more functionalities not available in official site including filtering, searching and many new collectors functions.

Please mail me your feature requests to be developed here (what is not and can't be in Discogs) or request artist import here: (enter correct Discogs artist name "Nina (3)")

This is TESTING version, only few artists imported, data and new functions updates very day. Graphics will also come very soon.
I don't hesitate to write me your opinion.

This project was original build for private purpose but after many upgrade (V4, MR) I decided to open it for members soon. So you can Sign up today and you will get mail on official start of site.

hope you will like it:)

thank you

Jiri

Maybe a stupid question, but why don't you put your programming efforts into discographyDB?

Not a stupid question. All ideas are worked out over here. Programming is ongoing in a steady pace. More hands on that part are welcome.
So to me and a lot of people over here it seems very reasonable to continue this project. You're very welcome to share your part of the story and explain what you want to do or could do.
We don't have to (and don't want to, I guess) do all the discussions again.
So corne_mo's question is a good one:

Hi, I am C# developer and specialist on Microsoft platform NOT Python etc... That's the first problem. I was doing this site for personal purpose to easily search possible wanted releases. After MR goes live in Discogs I spend one hour a day more to search release and what I want to add to my wantlist... so another reason Discogs new features are not going the way I need.
I have already stopped moderating last year when new version of site moderating changed to user-unfriendly thing,
and I finally found last month that I have problem with artist collaborations and wanted to split some artists for example "DJ Sammy Feat. Carisma" but it not allowed and I have been blocked to contribute last days because I wanted to do some changes in database against guidelines. Less guidelines more validation on submit forms should be perfect for us all but Discogs admin don't want that. I was asking on thatmany times. Rather to spend your life on correcting every new release of beginner contributors (and every guru someone fails too) etc. so for me only way from this is to transfer Discogs data in way I need to my own system which is almost done. But when I decided to make the site public I am open to any suggestion useful for others.

So the web version of my project I have done during few rainy weekend last months:)
The project also consists of mp3 Tagger (webservice connect to my site) which I didnt published yet. There you can tag your mp3 archive of ripped CDs by tracklisting from your collection items. I think that similiar products exists but only based on online search by API. I needed to pair my favourite artists and collected releases with folders on my harddrive.

My vision for future is to provide more about music than only discography and pictures, so links to videos and music (streams/downloads), concert dates, lyrics, newsletters, forum for every artists or single, enterprise search for collectors (auto adding to decide-list when new release imported to DB containg new track of any favourite artists that isnot in user's wantlist, dontwantlist nor collection).

So very specific functions for collectors etc. I think these features will be implemented on my site during July.

I am just thinking about some marketplace because I am currectly finalizing another e-shop project and I want to find some large second hand shop who would like to use the database with tracklisting. It's one variant, the second is to keep marketplace public but I don't need and want to charge any fees (maybe some entrance fee to verify user sending activation key to his postal address), so that another difference between Discogs and my vision...

But there are maybe things which we can cooperate on like that Mp3tagger and some standalone applications...

best,
Jirka

Hi Jirka.

I can't speak for the main members and organisers of this site but I would like to wish you luck in what your trying to achieve.
It's been a while since I've left any comments here but hearing about another disgruntled member of Discogs has broken my silence.
You seem so determined that I'm sure you'll succeed in what your doing but I'm not sure if your aims are the same as those that have been suggested here on DiscographyDB??
I'm sure you'll hear more in the coming days. I'm not in a position to know, as said I just want to wish you luck Wink
