    Is there any plan to make the Watchlist functional again?!

    It shouldn't be empty

    This is working ok here, what do you see?

    Watchlist, not wantlist!
  • quantasm over 11 years ago


    Yep - watchlist is gone for me too??
  • JT_X over 11 years ago

    Completely broken. Now that it's more important than ever to watch the artists and labels I know in order to keep out the garbage, one of the most useful features disappears.
  • trebor31 over 11 years ago

    Mine's not working either.
  • little_alien over 11 years ago

    Ehm, there are no more "pending" updates and additions, so it's quite logical the watchlist doesn't work any more. Still, the hyperlink is there. I wonder what its use is in the grand scheme.
  • spoon_ukhh over 11 years ago

    maybe it will appear when something is fully accepted into the database, i.e voted in as correct? same as it only appearing after the Y votes? that's what i'm hoping anyway. a watchlist is essential really, how else are you going to know labels and artists you collect have got new releases which may or may not be for sale without spending hours/days visiting their pages in turn.

    but i'm not sure anything is getting voted 'fully correct' or whatever it is so maybe i'll never have anything on my watchlist...

    Oops, sorry, misread the title, I'll see what is happening with this.

    Agreed.
    But surely it can show updates to items in your watch list - albeit that the updates have already happened rather than are pending.

    In the same way that I can view the [instant] changes to items in my collection, I should be able to see them for items I do not own - i.e. items/artists/labels in my watchlist.

    If nothing else it is a tool for the Voters and will encourage checking and voting on changes.

    I'd like a feature that can track the recent edits and submissions, voted on or not. The ex-mods/ current voters have requested this feature, as we're hunting blindly for votes otherwise.

    I understand the idea is that you should be voting on what you know and have (aka: things in your collection or on pages you'd commonly browse), so you wouldn't really need a "recent activities" feature. But until there are a whole lot of voters, this is not a realistic assumption.

    Other missing features associated with this: unvoted / recent activity lists per artist, label and user.

    that was my mistake, I had originally incorrectly entered:

    "Wantlist: When will we get a new watchlist feature? Mine now appears empty..."

    and have sence edited & corrected, sorry.

    Any news on this? Please?

    ^as above...

    This is a Killer Feature that no other sites have, that I know of. The possibility to track new releases for your favorite bands is a godsend for music freaks like myself. Please consider prioritizing this feature.

    How I wish it would work:
    - you enter artists or labels to your watchlist
    - when a new release is submitted you either (depending on notification options):
    - get a mail when its confirmed
    - or get a mail when its submitted and unconfirmed

    Easy but extremely powerful.

    Thanks!

    And already available via the Favourites list.

    The watchlist is another tool altogether.

    Via the link listed in the Page Options section on any artist/label page.
  • SeRKeT over 11 years ago

    thx md , i am sure before v4 the link was on the actual release page :)

    Do I really get a mail when new releases are added? I didn't know that. And how would I, the page or the help doesn't mention this?!

    Anyway, great!

    It's always been available on the artist's page. It's never been on release pages.

    Check your preferences.

    JT_X
    Check your preferences.


    I can't find any settings that might control this?! The ones I find are:

    Discogs Announcements
    after activity on my pending submissions
    when another user sends a message
    when a release in my collection is changed
    when a release I'm selling is changed
    when an item in my wantlist is for sale
    when one of my contributions is changed

    Thanks! :)
  • Sire404 over 11 years ago

    I think the site needs some help texts and clearer labels..

    Now I just need to add my ~200 favorite artists manually... The API doesn't have any AttFavorite function unfortunately.

    The Watchlist is working again! :-)
