This new system seems to eliminate the ability to add anything that would fall into the category of limited release, vinyl only or out of print material that one may have in their personal stash.

Two examples come to mind immediately, both Peter Gabriel, In Your Eyes Live in Athens and Quiet Steam.  Granted this is such a small category of music in the big picture.

Lastly, should an obscure track make the cut and a flac is requested, there are 8 levels of flac quality.  Would there be a minimum acceptable level ? 

 

 

 
It's hard to imagine many songs that aren't out there somewhere.

I thought maybe the Nick Lowe Campfire Sessions but there it is:


 
Of course uploading something obscure, we'd better have it in our collection. I hear stuff sometimes that I think RP could use but then it turns out to be some ancient promotional vinyl or an in-studio session etc.

I'm not sure it's desirable or not but what do you think about saying who uploaded a particular track?

Again, not sure it's important but will these uploads be added to the user's profile at some point?
 
If I want to point someone to a particular song I uploaded is there a way to do that other than just grabbing the URL of the popup window?
 
And finally, I commented on my upload, then someone else did too, and it kind of blew up.
 

 
edit: This posting behavior happens on other tracks too.

1 comment: correct
2nd comment added: it falls to the right of the first
3rd comment added: 1st now stacks up correctly,  2nd/3rd are messed up. Total comments count still shows 2 comments. Close/reopen comments pane, 3rd comment displays correctly, 1st/2nd go back to being messed up.
4th comment added: similar behavior, still shows as only 2 comments.

Accidentally deleted my original comment, oops, deleted test comments too, other person's (now single) comment still formats incorrectly. Total shows as 1 comment.

Thanks. It's still hotter than the main on the few songs I listened to, but at least I can use my normal controls to turn it down. Before, using the apple keyboard, with the rp slider set at about 90% (I want the music to be louder than the system beeps etc), I can keep my system volume at around 50%. But I had to turn down the Submissions music to about 10%, if that makes any sense. Now it's around 30% so I still have wiggle room if a particular song is too loud.

Note the answer to the query, the parameter takes values between 0.0 and 1.0, not 0-100 as the API says.

I tried it with 10% (0.1) like in the example and it was still sufficiently loud, but you be the judge...

10 songs total? Or 10 songs/month? or ...

If it's 10 songs forever, I better be very judicious with my submissions if I want to hear on RP.

 
It's 10 songs total in the reviewing queue (status of 'new' or 'maybe') at any time. Once some of your songs have been accepted or declined you can submit more.

Ah!  Interesting.

So, I put the new system through a few preliminary paces without actually completing a submission (yet).

A couple of observations:

There's no mechanism preventing just the artist name being filled in, and leaving the song title field blank - on the initial "let's check to see" page.  By design?  Yes, the next screen forces the user to enter the song name, but if a proper preliminary search/screen is to be done, shouldn't both fields on the "let's check to see" page be mandatory?

There's no longer a button to upload our precious mp3/flac, what have you.  By design?  Are those submitting tunes no longer needing to upload a suitable mp3?  Are you now going to track down a suitable file at your end, and/or are uploads moving exclusively to .flac or other loss-less submissions?

Also - sorta related: BUG: in the Music Search tab, the search mech seems recently borken.  Searching for a partial artist name no longer works.  George Ezra yields results, but searching for Ezra comes up with bupkiss.  Same with Tegan & Sara.  Tegan or Sara yields nothing; and worse "Tegan and Sara" also yields zip.  A working partial name search would seem to be a good thing to have.   ;-)



 
Thanks. Yes, both fields on that initial form should be mandatory. I'll fix that.

In the submission form I ask if you have a FLAC or ALAC (Apple lossless) file available. If I can't track one down myself, I'll ask you to submit it. We're moving entirely away from MP3s.

I'll be tweaking the search page, including once again allowing partial name searches.

thanks

Okeydoke.

When searching to see if something's been previously uploaded, searching for a partial band name results in "that's in the library." You have to type the artist and song title before it lets you proceed but since there are those false negatives, it's hard to know if it's really there or if you just typed it differently from what's in the library.

On the song info, you say "check if you can provide a FLAC or Apple Lossless file" ... I assume a rip from CD via itunes is okay for that? 

 
Yes. iTunes rips are fine if you use ALAC (Apple lossless) format.

I'll see if I can fine-tune the search a bit.

If a live recording is available as a CD or high-quality download, that's fine.  We just can't use stuff that's only available on YouTube.  The audio quality just isn't there — and there are potential licensing issues as well.

I have it (and have the video d/l too). So I can rip that track. It would be better to get on with a fade-in/out but maybe Bill can do that. I'll put the song in the submission zone.
