by brephophagist

Features & Updates

  • Concluded an A/B test regarding what to show on the collection page for users who have no collection added yet; a design showing the benefits of collecting on Discogs won.
  • Offers on Marketplace items will be automatically declined when they are unlisted.
  • Offers on Marketplace items will be automatically deleted when the items are deleted.
  • Added more analytic measurements to the submission form’s track list.

 

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug with the Discogs API that caused the count of users’ lists to show incorrectly for users that had some private and some public lists.
  • Fixed a server error that could sometimes occur when releases are merged.
  • Corrected a bug that caused logged-out users coming from non-English search engines to be directed to the English version of Discogs. Users who are not logged in will receive Discogs in the language their browser prefers.
