Design flaws

2010-09-29 00:00:00We just made a big mistake here. The most recent CSS design file is gone and we're stuck to an older design version. Most likely you'll notice that search results and the bottom of the paga are looking awful. We try to fix this asap!

2010-09-23 11:14:00Dear users,

After quite some comments on our previous mailing about further expanding the indexing range of Albumsindex.com we have decided to give our users a vote into what they think we should improve!

We've set up a uservoice forum were people can share their ideas and other users can vote onto what they think are the most useful improvements. 

Visit our uservoice forum at: http://albumsindex.uservoice.com/

Thank you,

Albumsindex

Movies or shows

2010-09-22 14:00:00Dear users,

On of the key aspects of our site is finding music. But there is more in the binaries. Most users will use binaries for getting next to music their movies or shows.

Albumsindex.com is working on a different type of indexing which would allow to identify movies and or shows. This of course is still in te start fase.
We would like to know from our users (by replying here or filling in the poll) what they think should be our main goal. Movies or shows!

Searching on albumsindex

2010-03-22 22:00:00Dear users,

On of the key aspects of our site is finding music. Most important for this is having an adequate search engine helping you finding what you are looking for.

Albumsindex.com is offering, as a test, 3 different search opportunities at the moment:
  1. the search bar on the top of the website
  2. the search bar in the sidebar
  3. a Google custom search on http://www.albumsindex.com/search/
Checking usage statistics shows that most users are using the sidebar search te most. But now we would like to ask you, what search engine is providing you with the best results?

Please fill in your response on this blog item, helping is fine tuning and optimising the search experience.

New design + functionalities online

2010-03-10 22:00:00

Dear all,

Since now albumsindex is online with an improved user interface. Together with this interface the integration with Google Friend Connect and Twitter has been improved.

As long been wished for, we now have fully capable tag searching (or genre searching) for all of our albums. This way you can find your favourite music with less hassle.

With the better integration of Friend Connect people will now have the ability to use this account to fully interact with our website. Using this system we can provide a very safe system without that our users need to create a new account!

In the near future we hope to add more content to all our albums (reviews, wiki entries etc) and more interactive ways for our website!

Enjoy!

Our future? You'll tell

2010-03-02 22:00:00

As you might already have read in our newsletter (subscribe yourself to our service messages here) we are working on our future.

This future includes more groups, a longer retention and better PAR support.

To get more feedback from our users we made a poll. Filling in this poll would be great for us, but most likely even better for you in the long term!

Sabnzbd RSS feed support

2010-02-25 21:00:00

Sabnzbd is an Open Source Binary Newsreader written in Python. It's totally free, incredibly easy to use, and works practically everywhere. SABnzbd makes Usenet as simple and streamlined as possible by automating everything we can. All you have to do is add an .nzb. SABnzbd takes over from there, where it will be automatically downloaded, verified, repaired, extracted and filed away with zero human interaction.

From today we support the RSS feed option within your Sabnzbd. When you're logged in using Google Friend connect you will see an "Download using sabnzbd" option at every album.

This will bring you to a page where you can see your private RSS feed link. By adding this RSS feed to your download tool it will automatically download every album you select on our website, making downloading 10x easier!

Try it out yourself, visit our Sabnzbd page.

Further Amazon integration

2010-02-13 17:00:00

Today we introduced even more Amazon integration. Most of our core code is based on the Amazon API, which allows us to identify valid albums and show you people albums covers.

Now on every album post we also show the current value of that specific album and a link directly to the Amazon album. This way you could consider buying an original copy for the cheapest prices prices possible. Though the link to NZB is still there :-)

Fixed updating issues

2010-01-12 16:00:00

There were some backend issues with our album art fetcher. For this reason loads of newly indexed albums weren't showed at the website.

We fixed this issue and we are currently working on generating 4000 album art for 4000 albums, which were already in the database but weren't showed at the website.

Due to this you will most likely see a massive amount of RSS feed items in the next couple of hours! Also the search engine will now popup with more results (including old results!).
