Discogs is focused on continuously improving to ensure you get the best experience when buying and selling records you love, and connecting with music-lovers across the globe. Here’s all latest engineering updates and fixes that have been implemented in the past week to make Discogs better than ever.

Features & Updates:

  • The “Help & Support” link in the site footer now points to our new support portal.
  • Users who change their username in one Discogs session will be forced to re-login for any other open sessions.
  • Sellers now have the option of adding a tracking number to an order when they set it to “Shipped”.

Bug Fixes:

  • Performance improvements to the “Have”/”Want” counts on pages that show multiple releases, artists, or labels.
  • Various fixes to reduce spam in the Discogs database.
  • Knocked out a bug causing some link failures for some users viewing Discogs in Deutsch (and updated other translations on the site in the process).
  • Cleaned up a bug in which credits for Marketplace fees issued for when sellers refund orders will be removed if the order is later cancelled.
  • Rearranged a confusing stack of buttons in the Shipping Policy section of Seller settings to make the “save” button clearly set apart.
  • Updated API documentation to clearly indicate throttling rules regarding user agents.
