:: 31/08/2013 14:12 CET :: evertonstz The possibility of changes the background img, the colors and the font would be nice.
01/09/2013 14:43 CET :: Marbug I will keep this in mind, and will add this suggestion in the future.
I don't have much time lately, but it will come! :-)
15/08/2014 16:31 CET :: Marbug Hi there, if you will ever read this ;-).
I have implemented this so you can chose from a template in your configuration. Though, I will still need to update the website for it and the templates needs to be made. Once I received the templates, I'll make some tests to see that everything still works after it I'll update the website!
The font can't be changed ATM, but maybe I'll add that option too in the future.
:: 08/04/2013 10:51 CET :: ainosilva hello! i'm here just to make a suggestion... what if you allow user choose themes?
i can give some css for the tables, very simple ^^
08/04/2013 13:35 CET :: Marbug Hi!

That would be a nice idea, though there is also quite some inline css, but I could move some or most maybe to a css.

Did you already made something in css?
Or the css which is present, does it has enough classes and id's for what you want to do? because the tagtable doesn't has any css.

Maybe it would be easier if I would first move as much as possible inline css to the css file, so you can edit that file
:: 26/03/2013 03:28 CET :: musicmusic Hi, would it be possible to implement a feature that allows the user to manipulate the consolidation of genres? for example -- separating post-rock from the consolidated rock tag. A tag exclusion feature would also be helpful (for example, excluding the seen live tag), thanks!
26/03/2013 07:48 CET :: Marbug I think that should be no problem. Though it could maybe take a while for me to implement it.

Just to be sure: In your preferences you can highlight a merged tag like 'Melodic Death Metal' in 'metal' so it can be viewed directly on the first table?

I suggest that the option can only be set by the person and for his own profile ?
26/03/2013 07:50 CET :: Marbug Almost forgot a part from your request ;).

Also adding something to your preferences where you can hide tags like 'under 2000 listeners'?
29/03/2013 04:04 CET :: musicmusic Yes, I'm aware that I can view the merged tags in the table.
Yes, only by the person and for his profile.
Yes, I'd like to hide such tags since they're not genres.
Thanks again
14/04/2013 14:54 CET :: Marbug I just updated, and like you can see in the news item, the exclusion tag section has being added.

When you authenticate with last.fm you can see it in your profile ;).
18/04/2013 10:58 CET :: musicmusic Yeah, thanks, I'm already using it.
How's the other feature going btw?
18/04/2013 17:25 CET :: Marbug I completely forgot about the other feature:
Setting the merged tag like post-rock which is automatically merged into rock in the first tagtable.

I will need time to think about how I could implement it, but I think it will be possible. Though, I still got a lot of other things beside this project, so it could also take a while.

Thanks for reminding me!
20/04/2013 07:59 CET :: musicmusic Don't worry, take your time.
28/04/2013 14:11 CET :: Marbug I just made the update, you can find it in your preferences now :)
02/05/2013 05:16 CET :: musicmusic Thanks for the update.
If I want the change to reflect only on my profile, I'll just have to leave the checkbox blank right?
02/05/2013 06:42 CET :: Marbug 'For all users' checkbox? yes
but even if you check it it won't take any effect yet on all other profiles. I want first to see how correct people set that option. I will probably use that in the future to hide or bring tags in front which will need it, like the 'under 2000 listeners' or something.
:: 25/02/2013 20:16 CET :: cranialeviscera It refuses to let me authenticate, giving me "The username you have set is not the same username as the account you want to authenticate with." even though I have it set correctly.
25/02/2013 20:28 CET :: Marbug That would be strange, are you sure you are logged in into last.fm with cranialeviscera? Maybe try to log out from last.fm and try it again?
25/02/2013 20:38 CET :: Marbug I think I might have found the problem, it seems it's case sensitive. I'll fix that in the next release. If you still want to authenticate, you may say something to me on last.fm , hi would be enough, I'll set you as authenticated when I'll see it :)
26/02/2013 23:28 CET :: Marbug I've updated the website, if it was a case sensitive problem than it should be fixed.
27/02/2013 00:36 CET :: cranialeviscera Thanks! I forgot to check back, but you can check my profile to confirm its me if you're suspicious, though.
27/02/2013 22:48 CET :: Marbug I see that you authenticated your account, so it was the case sensitivity problem :). And no problem, fixing problems is a priority ;).
:: 24/02/2013 23:24 CET :: Ataraxiainc Hello again.

I wish to know if is posible get data from the users in your db writing a tag.

Example. I like to get all the information of the tag "other Genres" (the overall %) from the users, Not all the list of tags and the percentages, Only the information you have about the tag "other Genres" (for example). A interface for search all the info tipping a tag. I dont know If it will be complicated.
24/02/2013 23:54 CET :: Marbug Hi there,

Let me see if I'm getting what you want to say:
Do you want to mean that every tag can have it's page, just like a page for a user, that you can see the percentages for, lets say, the top 50 users for that tag?

Or do you want to mean if all the tags hidden behind "other Genres" can also be shown?
26/02/2013 01:35 CET :: Ataraxiainc I like a interface where I type: User and determinated tag (Your tags only) And I get The percentage of that tag based in the user taste. I think is Easy but I am not sure If is a good Idea for you.

26/02/2013 23:44 CET :: Marbug I'm not sure that this update includes what you want to mean.
Though it was a very nice idea I got out of it, if it wasn't what you suggested.
Now when you are on a profile page, you are able to click on a genre which has merged tags from your artists.
But the tags hidden behind "other Genres" (other category) aren't possible to get anymore as they are thrown away to preserve space for more valuable data. If I will increase the limit (=500 now) for the top tags (those are the most used tags) we could see, it will reduce the "Other category", but it will increase the used space a lot. Maybe I could see in the future on changing that value to a more optimal if increasing it would have any benefit on reducing the "other category" and reducing the used space.
27/02/2013 02:28 CET :: Ataraxiainc Not trying to find New Artists. is only to show you your% of taste of ANY GENRE in you DB. As in the image profile but only the genre required.
27/02/2013 22:46 CET :: Marbug I'm sorry, but I really have a hard time comprehending what you are trying to suggest
28/02/2013 02:31 CET :: Ataraxiainc Haha Ok Is my fault. Sorry. Great Work!
28/02/2013 07:53 CET :: Marbug Thanks anyways ;).
Though I got a great idea out of it as you can see the changes on the genres of your profile in my last update :)
01/03/2013 03:19 CET :: Ataraxiainc OK. And I insert you bbcode in my BBCODE for my game inside the final stats. https://sites.google.com/site/smarteclectic/services
02/03/2013 16:04 CET :: Marbug I don't understaind what that is. But anyway, I made a new update, and I think I might have added what you suggested here on the users tab.
04/03/2013 01:37 CET :: Ataraxiainc Thanks!
:: 18/02/2013 23:57 CET :: DarkMage530 Would it be possible to adjust the frequency for updates? I see in the news that you made the 'update frequency' a variable based on number of artists and the percentage of change. That makes sense to an extent. When I look at my account I got an update yesterday on the 17th after waiting a month since January 11th and my next update is March 26th. I liked having updates every week even if there wasn't any major changes to the charts. I don't want to wait over a month for each update. There is no real incentive to use this tool anymore with a 37 day wait. I understand if you there is some kind of bottleneck in the system and you can't compute that often but if there isn't, it just seems kind of silly.
19/02/2013 08:16 CET :: Marbug I already thought earlier for adding an option in the profile for when you are authenticated with last.fm so you could chose multiple options for the frequency timespan (a multiplier) of the updates yourself. I will think about it how I'll implement it, the next release will have this option! (I cannot say when I'll have the time for adding this new feature, but it will be before your next update ;))

There is indeed some bottleneck, but I do want to give the users a high configurability. And it is not that everyone wants to set that option.

I will probably add an option to multiply/divide the calculated timespan between the updates, maybe with:
/5, /4, /3, /2, *2, *3, *4, *5 with a minimum of 7 days and a maximum of 3 months. (on every option, the calculated timespan date will be shown, so it will be easy to see howmany days it would take for the next update.)
19/02/2013 23:47 CET :: Marbug I have made the new changes, probably tomorrow I'll update the live server.
08/03/2013 06:16 CET :: DarkMage530 Excellent! I authenticated and modified the update ratio to something I'd prefer more. I hope it doesn't add to much strain to your system. Thanks so much for the updates. I also see the change you did with the combined genre tags. That is pretty cool! Keep up the great work! :)
08/03/2013 10:00 CET :: Marbug It won't make an overhead just automatically reducing the user limit as there would be more profile updates needed.

I got the idea from Ataraxiainc for the genres/tags. The data was present in the database, but I never thought earlier about it, and it was a great idea indeed!

Thanks I will! I am really proud how this project turned out :)
:: 03/11/2012 11:27 CET :: musicmusic Hi, i'm http://www.last.fm/user/Cranigen on last.fm
my tracks/per day are displaying inaccurately
my guess is your algorithm does not exclude imported plays for new users which resulted in a very inaccurate result, can you fix it? thanks
03/11/2012 22:26 CET :: Marbug hi, I'll look into that as I didn't knew about that functionality. I saw it indeed on some users, but I didn't knew why it happened.
Thanks for reporting it.
04/11/2012 16:41 CET :: Marbug I updated the website today, and this problem should be fixed now.
Of course, you need to wait till next update to see the changes.
:: 31/10/2012 17:58 CET :: DarkMage530 I was curious how the artist spread was calculated. And to what significance it has. Also on the user history page what does hpd stand for and what does it's value signify.

Thanks for the hard work. I really enjoy this app mostly because I love looking at and comparing statistics. Which is why I enjoy last.fm so much. Much appreciated!
03/11/2012 23:09 CET :: Marbug Mathematically it is calculated the following:
AVG = average of artist plays from the top 500 artists
MIN = minimum of artist plays from the top 500 artists (usually 1)
MAX = maximum of artist plays from the top 500 artists (artist on the 1st place)

Formulla:
artist spread in % = 200 * (AVG-MIN)/(MAX-MIN)


This means that if you have many of the the same artist, the artist spread will be low.
In the other case, you play a lot of different artists, the artist spread will be high.

By this you can see if someone listen to a wide variety of artists or which sticks more to the same over and over.

hpd is just the hits per day you have on the profile. Actually it is the average of hits/day and image-loads/day.

Thanks for the appreciation, I'm very glad to hear that sometime :).
11/03/2013 17:17 CET :: Ataraxiainc Not Sure About My current Artist Spread It's Right?
11/03/2013 18:22 CET :: Marbug It doesn't seem to be right indeed, it should be high..
The reason why the formula gave a wrong percentage was because of the low average calculated from the known artist count.

I will change for a better solution to calculate the artist spread in percentage.
11/03/2013 20:05 CET :: Marbug I changed the way the calculation goes.
Now the 250-500 top ranked artists, their sum of their play counts will be devised by the top 250 sum of the artist play count.
This should give a better number for the artists ratio spread.

Previous formula was much harder influenced by a lower calculation accuracy.
11/03/2013 23:27 CET :: Ataraxiainc OK. Thanks!
:: 21/09/2012 18:31 CET :: [Deleted] I've been using this app for many years and I love it. It's cool statistics and I like it. Thanx for making it!
