Hey John. I`m not sure I like the new way, when you top up your credit, is working for me. You gotta hit the button, wait to confirm each time now and your new credit doesn`t show until you hit update, so if your loading up on credit you gotta count in your head how much credit has gone on to each track. Just a thought Bro. I liked the other way.

the "Show Embedded Players" checkbox helps a fast load when needed and a trackname when wanted. Very helpful addition!

Good idea about the "don`t show this again".

The whole credit update thing will be revamped as soon as I can find the will to work out the javascript code to do it!

We have had a few donations in recently so I may be able to pay someone to code this for me, which will speed things up!

I am not the biggest fan either.

Perhaps we can set, somewhere, a total number of credits we`d like to start with and then our total can be topped off to that amount on each track and every time it falls below that number. Or would that not be technically possible?

I agree with irishjohn. This way takes longer and needs a lot of mouse moving to slightly speed it up. I also like how you knew when credits were used up before. I don`t want to go back to page reload every credit add tho, with the SC waveforms taking forever to load. Getting rid of the "Credits Updated` pop-up with a "don`t show this message again` checkbox would really help.

Interesting. I have also had a lot of comments about how people really like the change especially if you have a lot of tracks as you don`t have to scroll down to find each track.

I`ll have a think and see if there is another way to do it.

I know it can be done so that the credits update on the main screen without having to refresh but it`s beyond my capabilities at the moment.

Let me have s chew on it.

I agree. I found this super confusing and actually thought the feature for allocating credits was broken for the past few days. I was just coming here to ask if anyone else was experiencing the same problem and your post finally made me realize what was happening.

No registration needed to vote, just one click :)

I hope you wanna do this for me, especially if the song really is appealing to you. Let me know, so I can thank you for voting :) Below is the link:

Where you able to refer to me when you were signing in by the way? Just wondering, because you earn extra `karma points` as will you when you invite someone who is new. Cheers!

You can now add tracks from FanBurst.

It`s definitely worth importing your SoundCloud catalogue to even if you do nothing else. I just checked and "The Beautiful Ones" is number 3 when you explore "rock" and has had over 800 plays. All I did was import my tracks!

Great. Seems crazy not to really. A quick import of your SoundCloud tracks and you have the potential for more plays for nothing! :-)

Great video Christian. If you want lots of people watching it make sure you watch some videos and listen to music from other sources on here so you can keep it in credit.

Although I do like the attention given to the new My Details the whole thing takes up way too much screen real estate and I have a big screen so I can only imagine what folks looking on a laptop size screen would see (or wouldn`t.)
And good luck on the move! And remember>Label those boxes l,l,l

My Details: visually & organizationally a great update - being able to see the song title is sweet. That was on my wishlist.
But now it takes forever to load the page, probably because it references the actual SC track. Can it be pared back to just the song image? I like the waveform on the listen page, but donít need it here.
Updating credits is a bit more clunky. I like how it used to immediately show the new credit tally. The only drawback was how it scrolled to the top of the page (reloaded) with each credit add. Now I just have to mentally keep track of which ones Iíve changed and wait for the pop-up to disappear, or keep my mouse moving to make it go away. So now adding credits is slower. Be nice if the pop-up had a choice of ďI get it - donít show againĒ.

I like the fact that you can see which track you are topping up or deleting. Makes life easier

What do others think? In terms if width it will fit on even fairly low resolutions. It`s just the length of the page.

Personally I don`t mind scrolling through once a day and updating my credits, especially as the screen doesn`t refresh every time you do it now.

Thoughts please?

Little tip if you are trying to use a Facebook image in your profile and it isn`t working. Make sure you click the image until you get the final large image and use the URL for that. If you use the one on the screen BEFORE then it doesn`t work.

So I added support for HearThis.at. I have to say I am impressed so far. The navigation takes a little getting used to but there are real support people on there you can chat to and they sorted out my issue!

Not only that but you can import your entire SoundCloud catalogue in one click! I`d recommend doing that even if it`s just as a backup.

I have decided to remove HearThis for now. It is not very popular at all so is a bit pointless having on the site.

If it gains momentum in the future then I will look at adding it back.

I will look into adding FanBurst next but looking at their Twitter account I`m not sure they are that big either.

They do have a weekly upload limit - so maybe stage things? Also I notice that after 10, 000 plays you have to start a paid subscription to carry on -Seems reasonable.

14 August 2017 17:43

I was, at first, impressed with HearThis but now I question that as when I attempted to load some 94 SC tracks it only loaded 14 of them and my question to service about it was answered only after I sent it in a second time and now I`ve gotten no reply to that. So I`m basically on the proverbial fence. Fingers crossed (and eyes also) that I will get a response eventually. Or perhaps I will need to scold them again to get a response.

How`d you get it up? I tried uploading the embed code and when I click to view the track, it says that I haven`t provided a valid Soundcloud URL. Lol

Thanks for the heads up, John. Doing that very thing as back-up now. Appreciated.
