    Individual improvements to the wantlist have been mentioned in the forums over the years. Collecting them in one place might help push for some changes:

    Here are the improvements I desire:

    (1) The ability to set a maximum price for an item so that I don't receive email alerts for wildly overpriced items.

    (2) The ability to set a minimum quality for an item so that I don't receive email alerts for records used as coasters for 40 years.

    (3) The ability to block (or report) sellers who relist their entire collections frequently in order to generate wantlist email alerts. (Or an automated checker for this, as some have suggested.)

    (4) The ability to request a compact email alert that lists just, say, "Artist - TItle - Price"

    Please add your wantlist wantlist.
  • neilsmarsh over 8 years ago

    The ability to select (or deselect) which countries/territories you will accept items from as the postage costs and tax issues are making it a king-size pain to order from a lot of overseas territories yet the majority of the notifications I receive are from the USA, one such territory I no longer buy from for the reasons given. I also endorse the max price/min grade notes of danielgr

    Absolutely YES!
    It's annoying to receive a 3 page long mail with all the items I have in wantlist but 95% of them are in bad shape and useless for my collection.
  • chadlee over 8 years ago

    Just wanted to say thanks for adding the Marketplace information directly the Wantlist feature. This saves a lot of time.

    I second (third, fourth?) having an option to turn off resellers or individual items so that they do not appear in my wantlist/marketplace anymore. I have the same item that generally shows up every day and I'm not never going to pay the $31 asking price. Even if I could hide this item individually, that would be a big step forward. Or maybe a interested/not interested toggle to keep these items from showing up, kind of like how Netflix has (or had) with its viewing recommendations.

    I have the same item that generally shows up every day

    Me too, I just checked and it has appeared every day for at least the last six days, price unchanged at just under 100 euros.

    The seller has 200 items listed for sale...I don't think with that volume there is any need to (ab)use the daily relisting.

    (4) The ability to request a compact email alert that lists just, say, "Artist - TItle - Price"

    I especially like these two. I have missed items because some sellers have relisted their entire collections. Often interesting items simply drown in the vast amount of stuff I’ve seen many times before, but it also happens that interesting items don’t even make it to the list because of the max limit of 100 releases per email alert. I have missed really good deals because of this.

    My wantlist wantlist is:
    1. The ability to exclude certain items from email alerts. I have several items in my wantlist that are priced at €1 or less, and I never buy these unless the seller has other items I want too. Often they appear multiple times in the same email from multiple sellers who all ask for €0.01.

    2. The ability to exclude certain formats from email alerts.
    I have many 12” vinyls in my wantlist, but I don’t own a player and I prefer digital formats (I was born in 92, so I missed the vinyl era). I keep those releases in my wantlist so that when I discover that label X has put its catalogue online, I can look up label X on Discogs and look for red circles. I also use the notes field for information like “previously available in iTunes Store”, “catalogue now owned by company X”, “available online at link-to-store”, “want version/mix X instead, producer’s contact info is URL/telephone/email”, “the artist has a release named X that is currently not in the database” etc.
    Even though quite a few originally vinyl-only releases have become available in digital stores, I expect some of the master tapes to be lost forever, so I don’t rule out buying vinyls in the future. Until that day comes I don’t need them in my email alerts, especially since they displace the items I currently seek (i.e. CDs).

    3. The ability to add custom data fields, as is already possible with collections.

    4. The ability to mark a release as important, such that when a seller lists it for sale, I am immediately alerted by email. Alternatively the item could be placed on top of the list in the next email I receive, so it is guaranteed to make the cut in case there are more than 100 new items for sale.

  • alwaysmoving77 over 8 years ago

    Is there a way to only see items in your, or only certain, country / countries? I'm getting a ton of ads for Italy, Russia, Korea and I've heard too many horror stories to ever order from there and the shipping prices are often super high from UK / EU. I don't necessarily want to cut out all foreign items however because I've had great luck and reasonable shipping prices from some German sellers. Thanks.
  • danielgr over 8 years ago

    I don't think there's any intelligent "wanting" to be done. At the moment, I believe, you can only add an item to your want list, and then you receive an email when any item is newly posted for sale.

    And, yeah: German post is totally resonable. Amazing, in fact! International shipping can actually be cheaper than national shipping.
  • Skinheadmate over 8 years ago

    I wholly support the suggestions for, and would appreciate enhancements to, the wantlists function.

    What I thought would be really useful Discogs feature has become a "p.i.t.a", as I have to trawl through constantly repeating listings, items in less than VG+ condition, and listings from territories that really aren't economical to buy from.

    I appreciate that discogs does many great things, but this is a feature I think I'm gonna have to switch off.
  • metrowax over 8 years ago

    As a seller sometimes it is necessary to upload the whole catalog again. But I try to limit this to once in awhile. I agree that any seller doing this every day is a nuisance.
  • danielgr over 8 years ago

    I always thought the reason discogs sends out an email alert when something is relisted is because it would be too difficult to discern relistings from new listings. But I've recently discovered that the system is smart enough to know if an item is relisted---it prevents one from making an offer on the relisting of an item he has already submitted an offer on.

    So there really is no excuse for allowing the daily clogging of the wantlist emails.

    I was thinking about something similar. It would be great to be able to categorize wantlist items into something like "I am really looking for this right now" and "I am interested in this but don't need to find it right now" with only the first category being relevant for wantlist notifications.

    I also agree that the habit of some sellers relisting their entire stock every day is a problem. I know this has been addressed many, many times over the years. But I dare say this will remain a hot topic for many more years until someone decides to do something about it.
  • bigrasshopper over 8 years ago

    How do we know whether or not were just talking to the wind here ? Does anyone managing Discogs ever respond to these obviously excellent requests. Im considering emptying my wantlist permanently, until improvements are made, for all the reasons above. Sifting through records / garbage is something this website is designed to eliminate. We all have different definitions of garbage, but it seems that everyone still has piles of it. IS ANYONE OUT THERE

    "Wantlist folders" - same as Collection folders. Meaning that users could have folders, for example:

    - ABSOLUTE MUST HAVES: ✓receive notifications
    - IF PRICED RIGHT: ✓receive notifications
    - TO BUY LATER: ✘ do not receive notifications

    This would help buyers to prioritise which items they wanted the most, and to only receive notifications on those folders. Then when they wanted, they could move items from TO BUY LATER folder to the others, when wanted.

    Asked for many a time to aid buyers, which in return would then help sellers, as buyers would be more likely to actually use email notifications rather than turn them off in complete annoyance.

    Dream-on of this ever coming though, as mgmt don't seem to understand the use in such things to actually aid sales, and thus increasing their own bottom line, it seems. :-(

    Nope. Don't be silly, this is Discogs, they don't actually want to increase their own bottom line now, do they, that would be much too obviously clever. :-P
  • danielgr over 8 years ago

    I just deleted 75% of my wantlist because the emails were becoming so useless I was missing out on things. So I've cut it down to only items I would absolutely immediately be interested in at the prices they'd most likely show up at. This of course is not encouraging for Discogs' business.

    Anyone else want to post about their decimation of their wantlist?
  • Sjamone over 8 years ago

    Sjamone edited over 8 years ago
    The notifications for items for sale in wantlist are completely useless.
    Same sellers everyday with the same overpriced items, relisting and relisting...
    The relisting also makes the Items I Want (Marketplace) useless. No need to browse there, I can't find the stuff I want in between all those daily relisted items. Some sellers are relisting almost every hour! More filters there would obviously help, but Discogs doesn't want to do that. Nor do they want to add a block seller option, which would make everybody happy and lead to more sales.
    I don't think that Discogs realises how much sales they are losing because of the relisting problem.

    Edit: Removed part of rant

    I make an extension for Chrome that will allow you to tag/hide sellers in the Marketplace - it won't stop emails, however. You can also filter out items that are below a specific condition. It has a lot of other features as well like a dark theme, price comparisons, media condition highlights, everlasting marketplace (just scroll forever. never click prev or next again), a quick currency converter, release durations, and more. Check it out here:

  • danielgr over 8 years ago

    Hey, that's a really nice extension.

    I have two suggestions that would be really useful in filtering marketplace results: The ability to exclude reissues. And the ability to show only items that are contained on an artists "Release" sections (that is, excluding "Appearances" and "Credits"). This last one would help to look at all available main releases from an artist---quite often there are thousands of things for sale from an artist because of covers showing up on other records or from compilations and samplers and it would be useful to cut these out.

  • efil4jd over 8 years ago

    Glad to see this discussion, hope these suggestions would go forward somehow. All the wantlist filters would be helpful, but I think even a simple toggle email notifications on/off (or indeed wantlist folders with the same function) would help massively. The way I see it, the wantlist has two useful main functions that actually increase sales:

    1) To let you know that an item is for sale, obviously especially for more rare items
    2) To show that a seller you are buying from has something else that you might want

    Now, if you want to combine shipping you can wantlist common items that you can then add to orders (2), but those can totally clog the emails that are useful for alerting about items being listed in the first place (1). So these two functions just don't work together and separating them would help. Also, some sorting options could probably be added to the emails. Wantlist folders in the app would also make it easier to browse on the go, but I guess that's not really discogs' concern.
  • Michigan.Records over 8 years ago

    Aren't all these different "wantlist improvements" just the same filters that we already use for searching the database?

    !

    that would be one of the most important improvements for the wantlist:
    to be able to set the filters one is using when doing "normal" search in the marketplace. the results from the wantlist are just too unprecise now.

    another thing i would love to have, WHEN ADDING records to the wantlist:
    - add all VINYL releases of this master release
    - add all CD releases ...
    - add all TP releases ...

    would save tons of clicks!

    That was the point I was trying to make. Before making an itemized list of improvement requests, I'd like to know:

    2). if YES, does posting in this forum actually help make the changes happen? (I'm guessing no, based on this thread being over a year old without any indication of changes being in the works)
    3) if NO, what is the best way to actually help make it happen? (I would guess something like identifying the proper admin(s) and sending direct messages?)

    1) the logic behind the system with filters does already exist so it would only be a small thing to implement them. that already leads to points ...

    2) and 3) im definitely guessing no, too. i skipped through the pages in this sub board "development" and there are dozens of threads which contain the same ideas like written here. i just can't think of any possibility for the users to make it happen. Perhaps discogs hast just grown too big in the past to have in mind fixing such "detailed features" when the page is going to be successful without them too ...

    .... beside all criticism this is still one of the greatest pages in the web. but active development would be pretty nice.

  • Alktrash over 6 years ago

    I do agree on unwanted entries in wantlist, such as USA for obvious shipping reasons. There's a filter for money (euro, dollars, etc) but this is not useful since some europeans will sell by dollars for example... Just by having a selection by country could help, maybe

    But, well, i understand this is difficult or impossible. Something else is variable desired records. I do melt in my wantlist the one I am looking for plus the one I could easily add to a single order, just to save on shipping for example. It's like "ok i'll buy this but it give me possibility to also have this in a single move". Anyway this is not confortable for research, when i check available items i will have tons of unwanted stuff first and i miss the one i'm looking for.

    Well, my question/request is easy : could we have possibilty of more than one wantlist ? I know we have lists but this doesn't lead to direct shopping
  • Torniojaws over 6 years ago

    I definitely +1 the price filter for wantlist items. Ie. only show a notification if the wantlist item is for sale for <10 euros, for example. My inbox is absolutely flooded with notifications from the same 2-3 albums, that I would only buy when the price is below a specific level. Now there's tons of them for sale at say 18 - 25 euros, but I would only be interested in <8 euros.

    And even further improvement would be to include shipping costs, though that would be a lot more work since currently it is a freeform field by the seller.
  • Heckto35 over 6 years ago

    I only want to see albums that are NM-M and USD only, so I agree they should make that possible.
  • dav0043 over 6 years ago

    A lot of really good ideas here that would greatly improve the collecting experience. If I'm in the seat of increasing Discogs profits, one of the easiest and quickest ways would be to allow people to find what they want. Specifically. If your wantlist has any size at all, you get bombarded by updates from sellers who frequently bump their same old listings. Or things that are grossly overpriced distracting from properly priced items.

    The elephant in the room for all of us is Shipping Costs. They are inconsistent and insanely high in many cases. And for no good reason. Discogs leaves it to the seller and that creates havoc when it comes to comparison shopping.

    I have suggested improvements when it comes to shipping costs:

    - When a seller lists an item for sale, mandatory Standard & Registered Airmail rates
    - Mandatory Rates by media format, for Domestic & each continent (all 7). Don't list specific cities and countries. Account for that in the shipping rate or exclude that country from shipping.
    - No complex, gram by gram options
    - Mandatory shipping combination options based on Discogs formats (e.g. Standard Domestic Rate for 1 LP disc = $10. Each LP disc adds $3)
    - All rates shown in the currency of the viewer (seller sees seller currency, buyer see buyer currency)
    - Standard shipping should have a service target maximum 2 week delivery. Long term delivery options are not appropriate for a marketplace that is based on user feedback
    - Searches, filters and sorts will be based on all-in costs (item plus shipping based on the viewer's location)
    - Searches will be based on standard shipping costs being included, with an option to switch to registered shipping options
    - Values shown will be in the viewer's chosen currency (with seller currency shown in brackets but not used for sorting)
    - Shipping costs automatically apply in the Shopping cart & invoices, with no provision to enhance or deduct. The price of shipping is up front and clear and is what gets invoiced & paid.

    Enough with the voodoo around shipping prices. Sellers that price things to sell and offer appropriate shipping costs should be rewarded for their efforts and integrity by having their items be presented to potential buyers. Conversely, sellers with unreasonable shipping costs should not.
  • dav0043 over 6 years ago

    While I think of it, Registered should be defined explicitly as to what it means. It too is a source of confusion.Sellers too often believe that registering a shipment absolves them of responsibility. It does not. if the shipment is not delivered, it is up to the seller to file a claim with the shipping service.The shipper remains responsible until the item is confirmed to arrive or the buyer receives a refund.

  • S-Dog over 4 years ago

    I'd love to see a "Don't Want" button next to the "Add to Wantlist" button on a release page. It doesn't require its own list - I can't imagine anyone needing to see a list of tracks they don't want! Just a visible button, that when you click on it, it creates box underneath, exactly as the faded red 'In Wantlist' box shows up on any release in your Wantlist, but in a contrasting colour so that its visually clear that its a 'Don't Want' release.

    I listen to so many releases daily, old and new, as would many DIscogers, and so many times I will forget that I've listened to something years, even months, ago and didn't want it (hence I forget about it!), and I waste time listening to it again!
    The only solution I have right now is giving something 3 stars so that I know I didn't want it, but thats not necessarily fair on the release itself, or a reflection of me not liking it, its simply that I don't want to buy it.

    If this has already been discussed somewhere else, please point me in the right direction!

    Thanks all.

    I'd love to see a "Don't Want" button


    I think that's a "problem" each user needs to solve on their own if they're experiencing it. Maybe you could create a list of releases you don't want on a notepad or something, then just glance at it before you buy anything. This isn't a universal enough issue among users to really merit much effort, I'd think.

    I'd love to see a "Don't Want" button next to the "Add to Wantlist" button on a release page.

    As a workaround you could add any release you don't want in a list. Then in the release page it will show you if that release is already in your "Don't Want" list.

    Thanks Radum. I've now done this. Obviously, its not clear like the 'In Wantlist' and 'In Collection' and I need to scroll down to see it on the laptop, but that helps. Cheers,
