Artists name is ambiguous

Luukluuk (talkcontribs)

I want to add a mix of the artist named Paradox (soundcloud.com/paradoxscienceaudio). This artist is different from this Paradox mixesdb.com/w/Category:Paradox (soundcloud.com/paradox-music-uk).

How should I proceed?

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

Hi, you can now add this DJ as Paradox (Artist) We use Disambiguation page Paradox Smilie - wink.png

Tracklist editor next to the edit box

MDB (talkcontribs)

On wide monitors (+1800px) you can now move the Tracklist Editor up, right to the normal edit box:

Tracklist editor next to the edit box - 1.png

Tracklist editor next to the edit box - 2.png

Also comments are shown then.

A cookie is set so it opens the same way on the next edit.

Changing page titles

Seba2695 (talkcontribs)

Isn't there a way to change page titles without moving the page to a new one? (sorry for my bad english)

MDB (talkcontribs)

That's what moving does. Renaming with a redirect.

MDB (talkcontribs)

Guessing categories is now available for all users (previously mods only) and also in the inline upload area.

Mixcloud tracklists and players

MDB (talkcontribs)
Mixcloud tracklists vis JunoDownload

It is no more possible to check the check Mixcloud players for JunoDownload tracklists automatically. You need to open the Mixcloud pages manually. Found tracklists are then stored tho.

New mixcloud players

On the Main Page we added anew tab "Mixcloud". It listss new Mixcloud uploads with a tracklist that are not used on MixesDB yet (if the URL is not used in players or linked in text).

The uploads come from all users, so there might be non-related uploads. We might refine a sub section of defined user accounts.

The section might be expanded by new YouTube videos by defined user accounts.

MDB (talkcontribs)

Fixed if you saw nothing under the Mixcloud tab.

MDB (talkcontribs)

"New mixcloud players" on the Main Page is removed now due to low usage and heavy server usage.

AddMix templates from your favorite categories

MDB (talkcontribs)

You can create a user sub page of AddMix templates.

Now you can have an automatic list of the templates from your favorite categories:

This lists "AddMix" templates from your favorite categories.

  • If you miss a category, you may have it not favorited yet or you need to create an AddMix template.
  • If a defunct podcast or show is listed, request the deletion of the AddMix template for that category, e.g. in the forum.

It's cached for 2 minutes, but the cache can be purged.

Add this code to a user sub page:

== My favorites categories ==

{{AddMix templates from my favorite categories}}

To exlude categories from the list use not= and sepearte multiple titles with ¦:

{{AddMix templates from my favorite categories|not=Boiler Room¦Essential Mix}}

It's time to end

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

I think it's time to end. I Leave this work to other people. A lot of people ended up here because of me ... and I'm tired of listening to those words at my address.. It's not just this reason, as personal time spent here. As I say the best is to quit when you're on top. New people will come to help you. 6 years is nice but it's time to move to reality. There is no such drive and motivation to create something here. I think the atmosphere is not good here and maybe it will improve my departure.

I will not be on another forum, here it made a little sense.

Thanks for what you sent me, you will know.

Maybe a lot of people think I'm arrogant, but nobody knows me.

I hope I helped you a little bit to increase attendance and attract new people. Maybe a lot of people are just leaving because I'm here. But that's life.

Maybe I will miss it so I'll be back, nobody knows.

I am sorry for my English.

Thanks to everyone.

It's sad that you leave, because you were adding many mixes and (more important) always took care about correctness!

MDB (talkcontribs)

Oh Raduna, sorry to see you leaving :( You were an incredible contributor!

Yeah, the site lacks a real community. let's see where we are in some years Smilie - whistle.gif

Wish you all the best in real life!

Reality worst game ever.jpg

Alles Gute Smilie - wink.png

MDB (talkcontribs)

I took some of the podcasts and shows he added (mostly House & Techno).

Somebody interested in Progressive / Trance could take some of the left podcasts and shows? Smilie - thumbsup.gif

FreaQ (talkcontribs)

That is really sad to hear because I learned a lot from you contributinig to this site.

Thank you

Saviour1981 (talkcontribs)

i've been wondering where Raduna was the last days and now i'm reading this.

"A lot of people ended up here because of me ... and I'm tired of listening to those words at my address.." I think you've been too harsh and so this was the reason, but that's a point to quit here?

Let me give you a good advice. Maybe you can take a break (personal life is always an effort, i know that best) and come back if you feel like your batteries are fully loaded again. To leave forever is not an option. I know what i'm talkin' about. i'm 36 years now and once i tried to quit YouTube forever but i returned. I tried to quit Facebook, but i returned. I returned because i felt like playing this again like i'm ready to rock it again. I'm a rock 'n' roller in life and i still rave on. We all only have one life. Make it the best! I still try even if i'm not the young lad anymore i used to be (maybe a young gun ;-)

@MDB i've been interested in Trance but the trance music nowadays is not what it used to be when awesome shows like 1LIVE Partyservice kept me up all nights Smilie - wink.png

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

Hello everyone I'm back. I've been watching you for month and I have to say I'm disappointed that people leave wrong contributions without modification. I decided to return and help with the correctness of the contribution. I will not add posts regularly. If I have time, I'll add some sets.

MDB (talkcontribs)

Welcome back! Now I'm confused :D

You could leave the boring work for us and just add new mixes Smilie - whistle.gif

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

It's strange that I'm coming back so soon but maybe it wanted a pause... As Saviour1981 writes... Yes it's boring but nobody does it except for the few people.. I do not have much time but I will help.

Saviour1981 (talkcontribs)

yes, welcome back

- - (talkcontribs)

Good to see you back Raduna007.

From my own experience I can say it's very important to find a balance between "Contributing" and the rest of the life. Otherwise you will get frustrated or tired of it.

I've learned that it's not possible for one person to correct everything. You have define a "small" field of interest.

Best wishes!

MDB (talkcontribs)

And theres's nothing wrong with that Smilie - wink.png If just more would do so.

SoundCloud may die soon

MDB (talkcontribs)

SoundCloud just banned Rinse FM: twitter.com/RinseFM/status/885900146915016705

They may die soon anyway: techcrunch.com/2017/07/12/soundshroud/

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

now online. Why not choose Mixcloud..?

MDB (talkcontribs)

Grrr, MDBot just removed most of the players yesterday. Smilie - ahhh.gif Normally I'm lazy with such actions...

But as said, they may die soon anyway.

MDB (talkcontribs)

I think it's ok to still use teh Rinse FM players. I'm restoring the latest and hottest players again atm.

Spotify links for tracks

MDB (talkcontribs)

Tracks now come with a Spotify search link.

It has been there for a few weeks but was now been fixed so it finds almost every track.

No confirmation email

BenNoTen (talkcontribs)

Good evening everybody! And good evening to the admins too!

I just signed up for mixesdb to post some playlists. Unfortunately I didn't get any confirmation code via email. I looked in the preferences and it was the correct adress. No typo whatsoever. I tried mailing another confirmation email again to the same adress. Still nothing appeared. Can you please fix this?

greetings, BenNoTen.

MDB (talkcontribs)

Works fine here, I just removed and re-added my own mail address.
