Got a idea, it would be cool to let you have something to say what version of the song so then people know it has been updated.

 

It only shows the name so it would be great to have something that says it has been updated or the version of the custom.

It does show when it was last updated, you can sort by it. I recently updated one of my songs, so here's what the date looks like

 

October 23, 2015
October 2, 2015
 
October 2 is when I posted it, Oct 23 is when I last updated it

would it be possible to set up notifications for when people leave comments on your customs?

A crazy idea but could it be possible to add scores to the song?

 

Where you can take pictures showing your score?

IMPORTANT

 

For those of us who used the old C3 database to download Phaseshift song packages, this new database is terrible to do so.  There is not a way to filter just that type of download so I find myself shifting through 300 CON files before I find a song that has a Phaseshift download option.

 

I can't be the only one with this gripe.  Please address this!

You're more likely to "solve" your "problem" by using C3 CON Tools and converting the songs to Phase Shift format yourself.

Here's two things I've noticed that I want to ask about, both involving other people's uploads.

 

  • Often I've seen people either forget or not notice to switch an instrument that isn't on their song from "Not Authored" to "Song Does Not Have," bringing their "disco record" sign down several tiers, even if they've authored all the parts that would be in the song, all difficulties, etc. Would there be a way to perhaps make it more noticeable, or to make the defaults for each instrument "Song Does Not Have" so that people don't make this error as easily when uploading a song without certain parts?
  • Just now, saw someone upload a pack by various artists, and while their method isn't what one would expect from this database, it's got me wondering if maybe in the future it'd be possible to upload actual packs of songs as it's own entries, as well as the individual songs. It'd especially be great for things like full albums and themed packs I think, to be able to group them together, perhaps linking to individual songs within the pack's page, as well as a download link for the pack itself.

It could be nice to have that feature but it would need to be coded in anew, and I'm not sure pksage has the time to devote to that.

Making it more noticeable could be a thing, but reverting the process would not: if people forget to properly mark a song it's a disservice to the users but most importantly to the author, who doesn't get to properly advertise their work. For that reason the author is now incentivised to check the form before uploading. If things were reversed, the author who now, even if incentivised, forgets to properly mark their songs would end up submitting a form that shows the song as having all instruments when it doesn't, which is worse. The author would get a shiny icon and the users would get an incomplete song marked as full band. We'll see if pksage has some ideas on how to make the fields more visible, or maybe just add a Confirm pop up showing which instruments are missing just as a reminder ("You are about to submit a song that's missing Guitar and Harmonies: confirm?" Yes/No).

Ah I see. Maybe one solution could be to make all of the options default to the same as the instrument ones (i.e., "Choose An Option"), so that everyone has to select something for each field? I realize it's more work on everyone's behalf, but if it means people don't accidentally set their custom as not having things charted that aren't there, and it affecting how their customs appear, that might be the best way. Either way, I guess it's not that important, just something I've occasionally noticed happened is all.

Is there a way to export all or any portion of the database to, for example, a CSV file? I apologize if this has already been covered; I've spent the last hour searching the forum and I didn't see anything about it.

 

Thank you.

Just a suggestion to whenever it gets updated again, but there should be someway to search by Author.

After clicking on the author's name, choose 'Find Content', then select by content type: customs.

Can you add filter for the consoles available?
Like, show for "Wii only" or "Xbox only" or "PS3 only".

I was unaware you could sort by views, but it seems that option under "custom" is not working.

 

Is this something in the works and not yet implemented or it's not working?

I was wondering, is there a way to filter the songs that has every instruments charted (including pk and harmonies) that the song has? Or maybe just sort the database by the "info" column? I tried to find a way for that but there doesn't seem to be any.
