I've been noticing two major oddities when uploading artist pictures on the new site ever since it went live, so I think it's time to post about them here. The only reason I waited so long is because I wasn't sure if they were in the process of being worked on already.

- When I select the "Download from Internet" option, paste in a link and press the Enter key, it takes me to an error page that looks like this. It seems that only pressing the "start download" button works here, but the Enter key leading to an error page is rather jarring and adds an unnecessary hurdle to the process. This obviously wasn't intentional and must be an unresolved glitch.

- The option to upload artist pictures to an artist's gallery no longer exists. You can upload header pictures and profile pictures, but that's it. Clearly, these are still supported on the new site as you can see the artist pictures when you scroll down as before, so I assume this is an oversight.
-- By extension, when setting a header or profile picture, there's no longer a button allowing us to select from the existing artist pictures. We're only given the option to upload from device, download from internet, or set the "default" image.

Another bug: the new system doesn't seem to recognize when I'm changing the capitalization of an artist name. Instead, it gives me an error that the artist name already exists.

Example: I was changing Godheadsilo's map to be capitalized as godheadSilo, and I had to revert to the old site to do it. This is the error I'm getting on the new site.

I hate that I keep having to spam this topic, but this is what it's here for, right?

Going back to picture issues, I'm having constant problems uploading pictures on the new layout, and I keep having to reupload header pictures on Imgur (which always works). I'm basically having the issue I posted about in this thread all over again, but only on the new layout. 99% of links that I try to upload give me this error.

As I did in that thread, here's ten more sample links that all trigger the error on the new (but not the old) system:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
Link 5
Link 6
Link 7
Link 8
Link 9
Link 10


Furthermore, I'll occasionally encounter images that fail to even do anything, and the system doesn't give me any sort of error message. Instead, it will just take me back to the three-button selection. Here is an example of an image that will trigger that behavior.

Thanks! That's a nice list of bug, I fixed all of them.

About the pictures gallery, yes, the gallery is still there, but not the option to edit it. I'm looking into the idea to continue with header and profile pictures and phase out the gallery. That's the reason header pictures (and the same for profile pictures) can now be directly upload instead of selection them from the gallery.

With the new song and album covers, larger header pictures all on a clear spot on top of the pages, I think will be a good replacement of the gallery. Of course it's great to have it all, but when also keeping in mind not to overload the site with content I think this is a fair trade. Thoughts on this?

New bug or error. Snap suggested corrections to this album. I tried to submit corrections as some songs were not linked. The queue claimed no changes were made. I had to go back to the old queue to make the change.

Help! The new system review process is not clear to me.

Instructions state:"When opening an item you'll see on top what metadata needs reviewing. Click on that tab and you'll see the submitted improvements. Click on the improvement you think is right. This can be the improved answer or - if you think the current live-version is the correct - the "live"-answer."
&
"Please complete all required actions"

-Found the tabs
-Do not see submitted improvements
-Do not see "live" anything
-Do not understand what "all required actions" are

I'm unable to reproduce the issue. But I'm keeping an eye on this. Thanks!

Okay, I will be coming back often to try to figure out all these new processes. It must be logical, right? Right!
(Ha, using the forum is my only current path to points. Got some learnin' to do.)

Hi!

Help! The new system review process is not clear to me.


No problem, we have a completely new system! That definitely needs some time to get used to it.

Instructions state:"When opening an item you'll see on top what metadata needs reviewing. Click on that tab and you'll see the submitted improvements. Click on the improvement you think is right. This can be the improved answer or - if you think the current live-version is the correct - the "live"-answer." & "Please complete all required actions"


Correct

Found the tabs


check

Do not see submitted improvements


The tabs are style differently when there is content to be reviewed. The tabs are tagged with "! review".

Do not see "live" anything


This is the case when "live" content is improved. Think of for example a song title. Then you'll see the "live" (current) title and the improved title. This "live"-answer is not always there. Genre for example is not a mandatory field and could be empty. So If an improvement on genre is submitted you'll only see the improvement listed.

Do not understand what "all required actions" are


The form can only be submitted if there are no more "required actions". A required action is for example the "! review" action (already mentioned above). Another example is the "! required" tag on tabs. You'll see this when submitting new content. Tabs tagged with this are mandatory (for example the song title on submitting a new song).

I hop this makes evertyhing a bit more clear. And if not, just ask Good luck!

Thank you Ray! I will consider all that I can possibly read about the new system.

Perhaps my commenting on this thread was premature as now I have found the Site Upgrade – Beta Version Launched! thread that seems more appropriate

More errors and/or changes found via beta:
1) I updated the "about" section of a song on beta. It claims the change has been made and saved. I see no about area on the song on old or beta version.
2) We've talked about this before but all that YouTube videos are missing when I visit songs in either old or beta version. That is one big feature that guests love so it should be high priority.
3) The album listed on songs used to have back and forward tabs to progress forward or backward if we're listening and want to sing a long. I see that feature has been eliminated. I liked this feature and I hope you can put it back.

Sorry for the late response - just now seeing this!

I had a feeling you might've been toying with the idea of phasing out the picture gallery. The more I think about it, it's probably a good move. The gallery is so far down the page, not to mention only on the artist page, that I imagine the majority of users don't even look at it. Furthermore, given the crowdsourced nature of the website, two common issues I'd notice with the picture galleries would be 1) artists being oversaturated with images, often from a single user or 2) galleries having very outdated images. The second issue is unavoidable, and will persist even in the new site - after all, given the vast size of LSI, it's impossible for humans to keep every single artist page updated with "new" pictures as artists go through aesthetic changes, people come and go from band lineups, etc.

But on the other side of the coin, the main thing I dislike about the new picture system is that the full pictures are no longer accessible. So this means that if we want to, say, reposition an already-existing header image, we have to hunt down the original picture and reupload it. The nice thing is that web browsers now have the option to search the web for an image, so that might take some of the difficulty out of that, but it still feels like an unnecessary step.

Also, this is something I've been curious about for some time now, but once we flip to the new site, what's to become of all of the old header pictures with the grid overlay? Simply put, these look awful on the new site, but I can't imagine there's any way to automatically fix them to have the "new" look (I hope I'm wrong, though)

Splitting this off into a smaller post, but after double-checking all of the bugs I listed, it looks like this picture is still having an issue and not showing up when I try to upload it. It still takes me back to the three-button menu in the new site, but works on the old site just fine.

I can't reproduce this, it seems to work fine for me. One thing to note is that the "about" has moved to the song/album/artist into section (the part in gray with blue vertical line on the left).

2) We've talked about this before but all that YouTube videos are missing when I visit songs in either old or beta version. That is one big feature that guests love so it should be high priority.


I can't reproduce this one either, works fine for me. Any steps I can follow to see it?

The album listed on songs used to have back and forward tabs to progress forward or backward if we're listening and want to sing a long. I see that feature has been eliminated. I liked this feature and I hope you can put it back.


Looking into this!

Thanks Nicolas for your thoughts on the gallery, much appreciated! That was a very accurate description of the situation.

About two issues you mentioned:

full pictures are no longer accessible


Good point. Let me checkout if there are ways to tackle this.

... these look awful on the new site


True, the old header-pictures are smaller in size and are stretched in the new layout. The overlay is part of the picture, so unfortunately it's not a matter of simply disabling it. I can rebuild header-pictures from one of the images from the gallery. But since the w / h ratio is different for the header-picture than the images in the gallery, I part of the picture needs to be chopped. I don't know if that will give a nice result when this is done automatically. Let me look into this options.

Thanks for you input!

it looks like this picture is still having an issue


Fixed, well... sort of. It now gives the reason of the problem, a HTTP connection was used. The system could not handle insecure connections (HTTP), but no check was done and the system simply stopped. LetsSingIt has been on a secure connection (HTTPS) for ages. With the new system, also security was inproved, HTTP connections to load external content are not allowed any longer.

One simple thing you can do what you run into this: often the picture can be loaded over HTTPS as well. So change HTTP to HTTPS to see if that works. If that still doesn't work, the picture cannot be used unfortunately.
