Mixcloud tracklists and players

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.

AddMix templates from your favorite categories

1
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

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

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.

Have you checked your spam folder?

Mix tapes Magda??

1
Thatstacychick313 (talkcontribs)

Anyone have Magda caught on tape or even heard of it??? I bought it in 1998 NO INFO ANYWHERE. Played it so much the car ate it

Is this mixesdb or Raduna007db?

11

What gives?? Kind of pointless to post when 1 person pushes the entire community contributions down several pages every time you check what's new on here. Enthusiasm for music is 1 thing, total 1 sided overkill is another. Just pointing out the obvious I guess.

MDB (talkcontribs)

What is your actual complaint? That Raduna contributes too much? Smilie - roll.gif

Correct, he floods this place with content to the extent whatever others have to contribute gets buried by his constant onslaught, it's self serving and all around bad form. He loves music? Nope, he loves dominating an online database, big difference. As a result I request that you please remove all content I've contributed immediately and delete my account. Cheers;)

MDB (talkcontribs)

You cannot flood or dominate a database. Databases are always hungry and can never be satisfied!

Saviour1981 (talkcontribs)

sorry chum, but that won't work. All contributions are for the online audience and cannot be removed. The principles of adding stuff to the whole community what menas, it's not "own" stuff, it's given to the world outside. For everyone. To who? EVERYONE! xD

BTW, Raduna is male? Always supposed Raduna is female...

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

Raduna is Bot as MDBot (It means a man), which automatically adds sets but is badly programmed and therefore floods the MixesDB page. Smilie - roll.gif

It is not worth commenting.. Smilie - roll.gif Good luck somewhere else.. Smilie - whistle.gif

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

Of course MixesDB.. More or less, I'm just here Friday, Saturday and Sunday... It was a time when I was here every day and added together with Geomax 200 sets a day... I work now in Germany and I drive every friday 600 km of the house and back again on Sunday... Now, I do not have much time to add gradually everyday... is a lot of good music everyday that should be here and it's a shame that he is not here.. But unfortunately here are no people who would give her here.

I do not think it's such a problem. You can load the bottom of the page another 100 sets, etc. Everyone chooses what they want..

Saviour1981 (talkcontribs)

what? 600km? That's a lot. I could't do that...

Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

yep Schwerin - Nymburk and somewhere in Munich. I do not have much time a weekend for a family and I'm still here. It's not just about adding a set, but it's also time to patrol posts and fixes in the databases - and therefore we are different than others.. but this no one knows, besides the people who are doing it.. Ending is the easiest but I love music so I'm here.

Saviour1981 (talkcontribs)

i didn't knew before.

Okay, let me do all 1LIVE playlist stuff as far as i can do it (it's about time and when 1LIVE publish the playlists).

We are all here because we love music Smilie - smile.png

MDB (talkcontribs)

You nailed it. 4 the love of music!

PromoDJ players ceased to work

2
Kdg (talkcontribs)

Just to note that PromoDJ player doesn't work now, though it used to work in the past. A blank space is displayed where the player should be. Tried in Firefox and Chrome. Example: 2013-07-06 - Andrey Pushkarev @ The Opening of All4DJ Store

MDB (talkcontribs)

Thanks, we disabled it due to lack of https support. It now supports https, so it's back.

When do you use "@" or "-"? (Radio Show, Promo Mix)

2
Raduna007 (talkcontribs)

I have three case where the use or not.

1. * 2017-04-16 - Tomy DeClerque - My Chart (April Promo Mix)

2. * 2017-05-11 - Armin van Buuren, David Gravell - A State Of Trance 813

3. * 2017-05-09 - Elyte @ Soul Clap Records Show, The Lot Radio played Live Every show

some NTS Radio sets. Please tell when to use and when not ... ? What is the difference?

MDB (talkcontribs)

@ is used when the show is live, i.e. the DJs are all in the studio and it's broadcasted live.

Promo mixes are recorded and spread later.
