How about using blabbermouth source in news submission. its official since roadrunner runs that site, a label, so official source, why we can not use it in the news as source ?

Roadrunner doesn't actually own or run the site. They let Blabbermouth use server space and they maintain the site on the tech side so the actual owner can just focus on his content.


but still its legit why we cant use it as source

Actually Roadrunner does own it. At least they did before Warner bought Roadrunner.

How is Blabbermouth more legit than Metalsucks in that case?

According to Lex Roadrunner does NOT own. So, it is not a legit source.
Who cares if Thryce accepted it back in the day?

@Marcel When it first started out it was not owned by RR. Also for the longest time the site used to actually say *Hosted by Roadrunner at the bottom. If it is now actually owned by Roadrunner/Warner then I didn't know cuz I've never run across anything indicating so.

@BE I believe it was longer ago than that that I said that. And I can honestly say I was talking out of my ass back then.

The site no longer says *Hosted by Roadrunner though. And I couldn't find any indication of its ownership listed on the site currently.

Back in 2007/2008 it was hosted and ALSO owned by Roadrunner. I had to visit the head offices of Roadrunner in Naarden/Bussum back then and there they told me that the site was acutally owned by them although they only had "hosted by" at the bottom of the site.

Btw even it is still owned by RoadRunner I would NEVER use it as an official source since they also have news on other labels and it is more like The naitonal Enquirer of metal than anything eles/

but they have new line up, songs, album track list many cases much faster before band bands even put on own sites
Today few bands runs home pages, mainly facebook and other shity places

I have a suggestion for the "similar bands" feature. For example: I add Norther as a similar band to Children of Bodom. Then that's it. My suggestion is that when I add Norther as a similar band for CoB, then CoB would at the same time be added as a similar band for Norther.

The problem is that those images are a 200x200 image. If we zoom that in then the image will become heavily distorted.

You probably get this question/suggestion a lot but how much effort would take to make the website responsive? The layout of Metalstorm is perfect for the Bootstrapping framework, seriously guys its long over due.

Would it be possible to get youtube embeds in html5 as an option?
since adobe is not particularly interested in keeping their linux version of flash player up to date or easy to update the only options are running the security risk of an outdated flash player or missing out on large parts of the content posted on here

How about something like the Latest Additiona feature, but for invisible bands, who's profiles have just been started?

Might have been suggested already, but the release year field in the Add album form could be blank by default as well. Saves from forgetting to change it in case it's not an upcoming album, which has happened to me a couple of times

Would be cool to make your own lists "invisible". You might be working on a huge list and wanna save it without other members seeing it before it's finished. Yeah you could do it somewhere else on your computer and copy paste, so it's certainly not a must. But could be nice to see your personal list in progress on MS.

How about filtering staff reviews and ordinary member reviews separately
http://www.metalstorm.net/pub/reviews.php

some option for staff only and ordinary user only (since if staffer wrote review for old album, it wont shows on main page)

How about option here , show only invisible bands
http://www.metalstorm.net/bands/

now we bland visible and invisible in same, but how about 3 options
visible, then click invisible (what as now shows V and I in one list) and 3th option(click show only invisible bands) ?
