Recommendations now online

We’ve just turned on a recommendation system which will suggest other releases while viewing a release page. These recommendations are based on user collection data. So you can interpret it as “users who have this release in their collection also have … in their collections”. And we plan to improve this over time by adding more elements to the recommendation algorithm (like ratings).

The recommendations are also customized to your account, so it won’t suggest something that is already in your collection. But you can click the “more” link to toggle between including/excluding items in your collection.

We’re also showing recommendations on some marketplace pages, which works the same way but is restricted to a specific seller’s inventory.

Please post if you have any questions or suggestions for improvement! thanks

[b]UPDATE:[/b] – There is now an option in your preferences to disable the recommendations on release pages.
– Thanks for the feedback on the accuracy. We’ll be working on some improvements for the future.

    It’s a nice idea, if it was something different being recommended every single time instead of the same first five recommendations over and over (my experience)

  • Jun 8,2015 at 07:24

    The recommendations should only display a given artist and label once, to provide more diversity in the recommendations.

    My current recommendation list is filled with 1 label/artist, making it completely useless.

    You cant. There is no way to do it. Teo has not included an ability to turn it off so it seems.

    At the moment it seems all you can do is block it as per kepe’s advice or stick with it.

    Turning it off completely is not currently an option.

    not even true – would be true if the master release feature had been implemented beforehand – what the fuck do I need your algorithm recommending me vinyl pressings of stuff I already own on CD and vice versa? this is just ridiculous and a further example of the total lack of project management skills of the people in charge – currently those are wasted programming efforts, just like the collection search function that can’t return more than 50 hits

    another feature – another failure

    Agree – still, thanx again kepe!

  • Nov 6,2008 at 01:39

    [b]What [u]exactly[/u] are recommendations based on, do they vary between complete & correct, correct submissions ? are “needs vote” submissions excluded in this feature ?
    It becomes worrying to think that I could be recommended to buy a release that has been voted correct, when it’s not correct, causing more confusion.
    Don’t know about other users, but I would like to be recommended something new, and obviously it will be new to the data base [Needs Vote].

    If the year is also taken into consideration when recommending a release, that won’t be completely accurate because some releases are voted correct without the releases date.
    What about style, a user could have added to the [i][u]correctly voted release[/u][/i] [i]Hard House[/i] or [i]Trance[/i] when in fact the release is more towards [i]Ambient & Downtempo.[/i]

    The possibility that I could be recommended total bullshit is there, which questions whether this feature is going to make life easier for me or any other user.
    Perhaps, if the recommendation is based on the artist it would be more accurate, but then again I probably know most of the releases from that particular artist.[/b]

    [u=teo][b], I think you do care about discogs but fix more urgent problems on the site and stop adding fucking useless features.[/b]

    Welcome to Discogs
    a community-built database of music information. Imagine a site with discographies of all labels, all artists, [b]all cross-referenced[/b].

    so how on earth could you imagine this recommendation feature would be useful?

    as posted many times above, this is sheer enforced useless clutter. it’s a shame kevin you carry on ignoring useful requests and disbugs, concentrating on obviously sterile annoying features.

  • Nov 6,2008 at 00:53

    [quote=waxHead]2) Or maybe put together a plan to keep users loyal to this site – like moving the current forums over to a bulletin board-like system which is much easier to manage and search through? [/quote]

    And would stop newbiews opening a forum every time they want to ask a question or advertise something:

  • Nov 6,2008 at 00:51

    What is the point of disbugs having a votes section when the bugs/features with the most votes are ignored in favour of things like this?

  • Nov 6,2008 at 00:46

    Just added it to Adblock Plus’ Element hiding rules. Excellent add-on and it works fine for this utterly useless feature.

  • Nov 6,2008 at 00:29

    [quote=jweijde]we now have more clutter and information unrelated to the release on the release page.[/quote]
    lol.

  • Nov 6,2008 at 00:04

    As if the menu on the bottom of each page wasn’t enough already, we now have more clutter and information unrelated to the release on the release page. Way to go! Plus I hate it that I have to install additional software to turn the feature off.
    Why not have a link like ‘We have xx recommendations for you. Click here to view’, instead of showing them directly.

    Seriously, [u=nik] & [u=teo] where are your priorities with? Are you just unwilling to fix bugs or are you incapable to do so? Stop wasting your time with implementing unnecessary features like this one. Why, for example, do we have to wait 1,5 years already for something like the Master Release function? Or an equally long time for something simple as the ampersand bug to be fixed?

    So:
    1. Start focussing on the real problems on this site
    2. Make it possible to disable this
    3. Make it a link to a separate page
    4. Make it not recommend stuff that’s already in my collection
    5. Make it not recommend stuff that’s already in my wantlist

  • Nov 5,2008 at 23:03

    I can’t help but worry that usage of collections might start falling out of vogue due to clear data-mining functions like this.

    Maybe I’m paranoid, but if that did happen, submitters who try to coordinate data with other people who own rare items will be among the first to suffer.

  • Nov 5,2008 at 22:46

    The further degradation of discogs…

  • Nov 5,2008 at 22:34

    I question just how well liked Raze – Break 4 Love is, because according to the recommendation system it should be a universally liked record. Along with Papua New Guinea & half of Madonna’s career. To think I thought that “Recommendations now online” meant that some recommendations that have been made recently by users have been put into effect. Silly me. Time to go search out an IE7 ad system blocker since there’s probably no point in waiting for a way to turn it off in here.

  • Nov 5,2008 at 22:24

    Discogs has deficiencies and faces much more important challenges that need to be tackled instead of users being told what buy.
    The problem is that priorities are not well set, I’m sure I would have appreciated this new feature more if other more [b]important elements[/b] in the site were fixed first.

  • Nov 5,2008 at 22:07

    Can’t remember the last time we actually got something useful out of this site…

    Post Of The Day.

    Discogs is not what it once was, at least in the eyes of many current users (and many more ex-users/moderators).

    Some ideas:

    1) Fix some of the major bugs with this site.

    2) Or maybe put together a plan to keep users loyal to this site – like moving the current forums over to a bulletin board-like system which is much easier to manage and search through? I still don’t understand why the forums live in the dark ages while features such as this one are getting added throughout the site.

    3) And last but definitely not least – consider what your user-base has been saying all along!

    Thanks for the tip about Adblock Plus [u=Kepe], it’s really useful.

    And teo won’t have to add any ability to block this feature. Thanks for the heads-up, Kepe!

    Oh, and I’ll agree with others – cute feature, but essentially useless for most folks. Sure, some will like to find other similar things without having to browse the forums or ask for suggestions, or look through other people’s collections (my preferred route for finding new items), but I think it would need options to be appealing to more people.

    If nothing else, move it below reviews. But I wouldn’t notice now, as I, too, have blocked this extra clutter.

    Not block it.
    Not have it altered so it’s there but shows no notifications
    not have it altered so it shows ‘good’ recommendations (Really not bothered)
    Not put masking tape on my laptop screen or torn up bits of VHS labels on my eyeballs.

    for instance when I am looking for

    I only get UR Maurizio AFX and other useless recommendations instead of oldskool acid, other Alleviated, Chicago stuff or even other Mr Fingers related stuff

    ONLY the most wanted and most in collection are recommended instead of some useful deeper stuff

    please make it a mix of more oldskool style related and artist related mixed with most owned, wanted that would make it more adventurous and exciting

    if you have enough webspace for such gimmicks,
    add 90×90 images to the collection and [u]EVERYONE[/u] here will applaud.

    Seems that everything I look at tonight recommends [r=6352], from [r=65181] to [r=68245] … I think some filter by genre/year/other needs to be applied to increase relevency.

    Agreed.

    [quote=bobbley]for someone who’s only got a handful of Prodigy releases, they could find it useful to see what other stuff they’re missing out on? or is that being too plainly obvious??[/quote]

    I was constructive. You can see it’s reccomending the plainly obvious, from my example. try reading my post next time.

    I kind of like it. It’s not exactly the most urgent thing in the world that needed doing, but it dowes seem to basically work.

    [quote=teo]Please post if you have any questions or suggestions for improvement! thanks[/quote]
    Oh dear, useless page clutter. Provide some way to turn it off and then make some improvements to this long list of things that have actually been requested for months [url=http://www.discogs.com/disbugs]here[/url].

    Thanks.

    [quote=Qpchan]comments are way more useful than recommendations, please show the recommendations under the comments… more elements to be added (if possible): similar years as the release, common credits, style (+ ratings but not essential)[/quote]

    :shivers:

    Why not have a ‘hall of mirrors’ on every release page as well, while we’re at it?

    The release page of every other release on every release page…

  • Nov 5,2008 at 13:20

    comments are way more useful than recommendations, please show the recommendations under the comments… more elements to be added (if possible): based on similar year as the release, common credits, style..and yes ratings maybe..
    ps: and yes, something in options to turn it off as it will slow pages & annoy few people…

    All it does it recommend stuff from the same label your viewing, I already know I like the labels sound.

    How do I turn it off. It’s useless to me, clutters the pages and just adds to the slow loading of the site.

  • Nov 5,2008 at 13:14

    [quote=bobbley]yeah, just like Amazon – but I like it…[/quote]

  • Nov 5,2008 at 13:13

    Makes the page very busy.. not digging it. Maybe incorporate it in the marketplace?

  • Nov 5,2008 at 13:13

    [quote=bobbley]but I like it…[/quote]

    Me too, but it would be _so_ much more useful if the “master release” setup was in place…

  • Nov 5,2008 at 13:12

  • Nov 5,2008 at 13:08

    Eh ?! For a moment I thought I’m browsing amazon.com!

    I want to turn that off please!
