Again I cannot register "Helix King" on the review site I believe because of the space? I'm always directed to a page saying letters and numbers only allowed

Really minor stuff here, but yeah.

3. The footer's display setting are different depending on which part of the site you are on. If you are using CSS, maybe create a new footer section to keep continuity?

vs
http://sputnikmusic.com/blog/
vs
http://sputnikmusic.com/index.php

5. Sometimes contributors show up twice if they have contributed both a band edit and an album edit. I posted this in here before but you deleted it, and it wasn't fixed.

Also, the image upload algorithm is still producing stretched images:

i have posted the cover for Sceptic's "Unbeliever's Script" along with some minor alterations for the Sceptic general page.

Sceptic's "Unbeliever's Script":
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/soundoff.php?albumid=15751

Those minor alterations were uploaded, but the the cover was not, although i have uploaded it several times in the past.

Perhaps there is a bug, perhaps not.

I just thought you should know.

Problem with my account

I tried to log in using the password that window had saved for my account and it did not work. I reset my password and that does not seem to work either. It says I am logged in for this section of sputnik, but when I go to music reviews, it says log in at the top and I cannot look at my profile page. I also cannot rate albums. When I try to rate an album, it redirects me to the login page. Then i try to log in using my new password and it tells me that my name or password is incorrect. I'm not sure what url you would need to help me with this problem. Thank you

Guys, i know this might be a common problem but i can't find a workaround :
i changed my forum password and now i can't log on the other part of the site. I read that it could take some time until the password is refreshed but now, after a couple of hours, i still have my problem.

Any advice?

The part that surpasses the 5 hours, until it becomes "some days"

Wasn't the stretched images thing (bug) supposedly taken care of? Anyway, it's still happening.

this has been a fairly common bug, but the front page summaries for best new music albums don't necessarily correspond to the review they're linked to. For example, my Arcade Fire summary went to Tyler's, and right now Keelan's summary is being linked to my review.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned using the new edit function in the lists. After you edit your post the formatting gets all messed up.

I know it's a minor problem, but it is annoying when it makes your post become unreadable.

Can't edit "My Favorite Bands"

All of my favorite bands have disappeared, and I cannot click to add them back. I just see a white, non-clickable bar. I have checked my Profile Options to make sure that "Favorite Bands" is turned on.
Help!

I'm sure this has probably been complained about before, but in case it hasn't...

When creating lists, upon editting the list, all of the albums with an apostrophe in the title or artist name have the artwork next to it deleted. Is there any way this could be fixed so that we can edit lists without losing artwork?

If you mean adding pics to the actual album itself then yes you can, it just won't show up right away because it needs to be approved by a mod

Oh, so this: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/40059/His-Name-Was-Yesterday-His-Name-Was-Yesterday/

Whenever I tried to upload album to art to the review, it would just come up blank after I selected the file. But if it just has to be approved, then that reassures me.

Everything that gets added to the site by an everyday user goes into an approval queue that gets looked at by the mods (news articles/first reviews/new artists/albums/ band pics and bios) - its just a safety measure to ensure that the right content is being added. But the mods also have lives (except Willie, Willie lives in Sputnik) so your artwork won't show up instantaneously

I added the artwork for you btw, but according to iTunes this album's only on pre-order at the moment and isn't out for a few more days. Is there an official stream out, or has it been released in your area?

Thanks for adding it! Yeah it's out on Tuesday, but there were pre-orders the band had out and a lot of us received them this week so I went ahead and reviewed it - but here's a stream: http://www.reverbnation.com/hisnamewasyesterday#!/artist/artist_songs/158203

I'll repeat one that's been said: when you edit your comment on a list it messes up the formatting. It's quite annoying for people like me that are nitpicky about spelling/grammar (yes even on the INTERNET), or for editing album ranking lists/rec lists.

Still cannot edit "Favorite Bands" on Profile

I hate to be a pest, but I still can't edit "My Favorite Bands." The list used to be there, then just disappeared one day and I cannot click in the text box to add them back.

I tried adding an album awhile ago, the band name was altered in the process,
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/MV-%26amp%3Bamp%3B-EE/22340/

I was trying to add it to
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/MV-%26amp%3B-EE/18177/

Can you add it to the correct page please?
