Yes, now you can create your own album collection here on MS! I've been asked many times about this feature, and now it's finally here. Here are some of its possible uses:

- Keep track of your albums and wishlist, sort them by band, year, rating or purchase date
- Keep track of release dates of albums in your wishlist
- See the albums you haven't yet voted for and do it very conveniently right on the Collection page
- Show your collection to other users and see their collections

And coming after we have enough entries:
- We will analyze your favorite bands, album collection, ratings and try to find users with similar tastes and maybe make some suggestions about other bands or albums you might find interesting
- Our own charts will show how many people own an album and which albums are currently 'hot'

We are also open to any suggestions about additional features/uses of Album collection.


You can add albums from your Collection page, as well as using the 3 new buttons under album images:
- I have it! means just that - that you already own the album
- Just got it recently - means that you've acquired this album within the last few days - this will add the album with the purchase date set to current day. Mainly for the charts, but you might also find it useful.
- Add to my wishlist - add the album to your wishlist

Another way to add albums is the albums list. You can filter the albums there in any way you want and then add them one by one using the buttons.

Have fun!

Question: Is there anyway to add all the non-Metal albums we have? I've got well over 1000 Metal albums, but that is maybe half of my whole collection.

Not to mention our mummys and Daddys pay for our housing, most of our food and occasionally clothing. Thats a pretty big margin of disposable income.


Mmm, being single as I am, I think I'll give my parents a call and tell them I am moving back in
I could easily live on the second floor of their house since my parents' sleeping and living quarters are on the groundfloor anyway. Will just have to kick dad out his hobbyroom, and then will transform that into my music room. And that room being my old room when I still lived with them... hahahaha. Get the albums cassettes and cd's I have stored in their attic down there and I will have my own little paradise.

Judging by this idea, you plan on staying single?

I'm not sure if I should be posting this here or not, but since it has to do with the collection system specifically I'll post it here.

Is there any way that downloading the collections to .CSV could also add in the notes about the releases? For example, I have 2 copies of Carcass - Heartwork, one with a bonus track and one reissue with a slipcase and poster, and it would be nice if the note I make for those two would show up in the .CSV file as well.

Also, could we get an option for how many albums are displayed per page? Lots of sites have something like this that allows you to choose how many results are displayed. If it was an option then people with slower connection speed could leave it lower so the pages don't take forever to load, and those with faster connections could quickly scan over people's collections by simply scrolling instead of constantly changing pages. Maybe options for 50, 100, 500, 1000 would be good?

Good suggestions, thanks! I'll take them into account when I'm revising the Collection.

I don't understand what's wrong, but if i click for a genre (on the right side) what show how % is this from my collection, it say always: No albums here... Try Wishlist. but it's not true, and earlier it's worked, so if someone know something about it, please let me know.

How about an "Albums I used to own" section in the collection? I would like a proper memorial page for them instead of just having to delete them in cold blood.

I'm afraid that's exactly what I've been planning for a while, which is basically why I asked that. Having a "previous possessions" sort of page makes it a little easier letting go.

I can't tell if that's a joke. I think it would be utterly pointless.

If you're being facetious then ignore this entire comment.

It's not a joke. Was there something I didn't explain clear enough?

Well it is true, you can always add the album in collection and into "notice" write "i dont have this anymore, i sold it last month" or something...

I agree, but I don't care about albums other people currently own, either. At least over the internet.

Ellrohir, that sounds like a good idea, but I'd like for the album count to remain updated with the true number of albums that I own. And with some of my albums the info box is already full.

Frankly, i think a tangible album (lp/cassette/cd) or "electronic" option would be more useful.

that way those of us dinosaurs who actually support artists can flex our e-peens (or would that be lpeen?) a bit.
