Feature Request Features & Feedback

Recommended Posts

I'm sure that a number of these are planned and some may have been stated before.
So I'll just put all my notes into a single post.
 
Feature Requests & Suggestions:
  1. Infinte scrolling with the Discover page via ajax. Out of this list, this is the feature I'd like to see the most.
  2. A Read API: A JSON GET request for info
  3. A Write API: Ability to upload tracks via third party using an Auth system, possibly public/private key combo that is unique to each user
  4.  An internal Like system in addition to the current Favorites system
  5.  Add alphabetical searches to the Order list
  6. Add a "Classical" genre to the genre list
  7.  Ability to 'ignore' certain artists so undesired songs won't appear in the user's searches
  8.  Ability to directly message users on pony.fm without having to go through the MLPForums
  9.  Ability to specify a song as a remix and list the original artist when uploading/editing
  10.  Have the Discover page remember the last search state that was active (the Type/ShowSongs/Genre/IsVocal/Order stuff)
  11. Ability to compat the lyrics section after it has been expanded
  12. Ability to shrink/expand the list of playlists on the sidebar
  13. Have a "Feed" section on the dashboard (possibly above the new songs and popular songs section) that shows the most recent songs of those who you are "Following".
  14. Add a replay button that starts the song over without having to re-cache it.
  15. Add a paypal/donation button to the about page and a bit of contact info for those who run the site (PM link, maybe email).
  16. Add search functionality/a search bar.
  17. Ability to delete comments made.
  18. Ability to drag and drop songs onto a playlist to add them to it.
  19. Add in a context menu (right-click) for tracks for a quick access to common commands, such as:
    • Add to playlist
    • Favorite
    • Get Link (for sharing)
    • View Artist
    • View Album (if applicable)
    • Download
    • +Possibly a context menu for playlists as well
    •   - Add current song
    •   - Get Link (for sharing)
 
Bugs & Feedback:
  1. When switching between ajax pages the active song loses it's highlighted state.
  2. Sometimes the music player freezes. Not the whole site, just the playing of audio
  3. When trying to save profile settings, having the "Sync my MLP Forums display name with Pony.fm" box ticked gives the error "The display name field is required".

That's really all I have for bugs right now... the site is fantastic. Really looking forward to more personalization features!

There are a few broken songs on pony.fm's discovery page. Here's a playlist of the ones that are not working properly. https://pony.fm/p171

Thanks for the feedback! I've responded to most of your points individually :)

 

    • Infinte scrolling with the Discover page via ajax. Out of this list, this is the feature I'd like to see the most.

 

This was a planned feature, but was dropped due to routing issues. What I mean is that when you're on a discover page, and you select a track, you *should* be able to hit the back button and get back to where you were. This wasn't possible using the current routing framework that PFM uses. I would like to see this feature, but it would require some design considerations

 

    • A Read API: A JSON GET request for info
    • A Write API: Ability to upload tracks via third party using an Auth system, possibly public/private key combo that is unique to each user

 

This is currently not planned, but may be implemented sometime in the future.

 

    •  An internal Like system in addition to the current Favorites system

 

This is planned.

 

    •  Add alphabetical searches to the Order list
    • Add a "Classical" genre to the genre list

 

These can be added to the next set of changes.

 

    •  Ability to 'ignore' certain artists so undesired songs won't appear in the user's searches

 

Dunno about this one; it isn't a bad idea, but likely won't make it into the next few change sets.

 

    •  Ability to directly message users on pony.fm without having to go through the MLPForums

 

This feature is supposed to be rolled into Poniverse itself, and not something specific to PFM.

 

    •  Ability to specify a song as a remix and list the original artist when uploading/editing

 

This is possible, but isn't planned at the moment.

 

    •  Have the Discover page remember the last search state that was active (the Type/ShowSongs/Genre/IsVocal/Order stuff)

 

This is similar to a "saved searches" feature that was dropped due to time. It will be added back soon.

 

    • Ability to compat the lyrics section after it has been expanded
    • Ability to shrink/expand the list of playlists on the sidebar

 

This can be addressed in the upcoming design changes.

 

    • Have a "Feed" section on the dashboard (possibly above the new songs and popular songs section) that shows the most recent songs of those who you are "Following".

 

This will be addressed soon.

 

    • Add a paypal/donation button to the about page and a bit of contact info for those who run the site (PM link, maybe email).

 

This gets complicated... will have to speak with Feld0 about it.

 

    • Add search functionality/a search bar.

 

This isn't a planned feature, but will make its way in at some point in the future.

 

    • Ability to delete comments made.

 

This will be added to the next release

 

    • Ability to drag and drop songs onto a playlist to add them to it.
    • Add in a context menu (right-click) for tracks for a quick access to common commands, such as:
      • Add to playlist
      • Favorite
      • Get Link (for sharing)
      • View Artist
      • View Album (if applicable)
      • Download
      • +Possibly a context menu for playlists as well
      •   - Add current song
      •   - Get Link (for sharing)

 

 

If I have time for the next update, these features may find their way in. They're good ideas, of course, and will be added eventually.
