      • Would you think an Instagram page can be considered as a microblog ?
      • deep question ..
      • reosarevok
        Just add it as social network
      • I think we should just merge microblog into social network anyway - nobody uses the word "microblog" anymore :p

      • reosarevok: during the recent chinese earthquake, the same news anchors who during the olympic games had to stress that they don't have twitter in china, and who _always_ used "twitter" in the context of the arab spring, were suddenly forced to say that people called for help through _microblogging_.

        Anyone here?
      • VxJasonxV
        there are 108 people here
      • asking that question likely didn't resolve your real question though
      • xteejx
        ah bugger ;)
      • It's about the lastfm plus plugin
      • I want Genre to be tagged with the most popular tag per track from last.fm. I've almost got it, but it's picking some stupid ones
      • JonnyJD
        xteejx: add these stupid ones to your blacklist. Stupid ones are the most popular.
      • blacklist -> ignore list
      • xteejx
        I'll redefine "stupid" : Ones that *would* be correct but not for that track. Example: Madness - Lovestruck - Rock .... I'd have put it as ska, and looking at last.fm that tag is indeed there, but the rock one isn't?
      • Settings: Minor Tags : 1 // Genres: ambient, ballad, blues, chillout, christian, christmas, club, comedy, country, dance, disco, doo wop, drum and bass, dubstep, easy listening, electro, emo, folk, funk, garage, grime, happy hardcore, hip hop, house, indie, jazz, jungle, kids, latin, lounge, metal, motown, new age, party, pop, punk, r&b, rap, rave, reggae, rock, salsa, samba, ska, soul, swing, techno, trance
      • Major is set to 0, but it'as the only way it seems to put it in the Genre tag
      • JonnyJD
        hm, no clue. I normally use the "non-plus" last.fm plugin
      • xteejx
        hm, it's really bugging me. I'd have thought with just 1 tag it'd take the most popular one by count
      • jcazevedo joined the channel
      • JonnyJD
        a wild guess, Is it maybe only taking genres that are specified in the mp3 list?
      • but Ska should be in there
      • xteejx
        ska is there though...?
      • oh weird...if I copy the same tag list to Major and set major AND minor to 1, it comes up with Grouping and Genre to ska
      • meh, I think I've sorted it out, thanks JonnyJD :)
      • best go and carry on tagging 32000 tracks ;)

        Tried this edit, is it welcomed or not ? http://musicbrainz.org/edit/23953029
      • there is a risk some tracks might not be the same, but otherwise it will never be cleaned
      • what's the guideline if there is a doubt?
      • JonnyJD
        Hadora: why do you guess there are all the same, even if there are even some times missing?
      • Hadora
        time missing are from mix, I thought it was now eligible for merging ?
      • once again this is a tentative edit
      • i'm ready to cancel it :)
      • JonnyJD
        well, I also don't have a reason to think this wasn't released in the same version that many times.
      • I'll just not vote. Don't have much experience with chart music anyways (my music never has that many tracks per recording)
      • Hadora
        that risk is driven by the fact that these dupes drive me crazy
      • thanks for your opinion!
      • JonnyJD
        they are already attached to the same work, I guess?
      • That would be more important
      • (which of course happens automatically when the recordings get merged)
      • Hadora
        hmm i haven't check that

        Nice. When Hamlet evolves into a Rocky Horror kind of audience-participation thing, we should all shout "yes".

      • drsaunde: There's no such thing as "poplock". "Popping" is one style, "locking" is another.
      • drsaunde: And the Danes aren't known for using wooden shoes last I checked - that's the Dutch.
      • And I can confirm that warp indeed was wearing wooden shoes at the summit.

        i always thought poplock based on one the originals: https://musicbrainz.org/recording/97544922-e54f...
