I also joined Favslist. Looking good so far, However, one point of criticism is that I can't seem to add music albums for some reason.

http://www.favslist.com/lists/Favorite-Music-Albums/51
Can't you edit this list?

I can edit the list, but the issue is I can't add a new album to add to my list like I can with films or books; on the "create a new page"-page, I get options for the usual - Book, Film, Band, etc. but not for Music Album. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong somehow.

It took me a while to find the right box for music album, it's hidden in there somewhere though.

@Papi

More page options would be good when making a page, currently I have to wait until it's accepted to do dates etc, it would be easier to do it all in one go.

Can't seem to create a new list (clicking the link takes me straight to the main page) or add pictures to each entry (clicking on link doesn't do anything, period). I'll just wait, it's probably a temporary issue.

oooh! this is good. I can make all my nerd lists in one place now!

Wait..... cosmetic brands....?

Oh and there are a lot of shows missing, but I could only add 3 to the database. Is that right?

Music album is under Product or Entertainment > Entertainment > Music
As for list, you cannot create them. we're still in control of that.

@msg
We will give you the option to have to add more info from the page creation process. Hopefully this next week!

@klem
Hey Klem! Nice to see you well!
You can add anything you want that is missing from the database.

Thanks for the info, Papissama.

Lazy Sunday so I'm currently adding loads of music albums, bands, films, film directors, etc. And Borussia Dortmund, of course. :)

Yes and Favslist is the replacement, it deals in everything (films, etc) instead of just videogames.

Obviously however both sites are pointless because personally ranking things is broken. It's like trying to rate everything from 1 to 10, but even worse, since at least you can give multiple games a 7 or 8 whereas with a list everything has to be in a different spot. If your favorite foods list contains both apples and oranges you're FORCED to declare which of the two is "better". So the whole unikgamer/favslist project was ultimately a waste of time, at best some people go there to indulge their OCD but nothing that could be considered constructive or social. Take the user Gries He for instance, he has like 200 lists on Favslist, you think anyone is going to read them all? He doesn't even update his lists. The site is basically a trash bin for lists. Granted Pape might have come up with a solution to all this in time but now we'll never know.

eh as some people say "people are obsessed with ratings" ... it works for companies too :) (paid reviews, ratings, ads, promotions, etc.)

independent ratings are cool ... and don't think that data is completely useless. some companies might be interested to tailor their products towards specific users needs and desires ;) instead of looking at aggregate/compiled data. not my specialty but yeah data is so big these days i often dont need to finish writing my searches and can just select the top prediction ... kind of makes me feel like i dont have any creativity or original thoughts sometimes but whatever. many people searching for the same kinds of things.

Data is everywhere, sales, user reviews, page views, etc. I'm not saying these things are bad necessarily, but trying to get everyone to make a gazillion top 10 lists is not needed. Ratings already accomplish the same thing, if rate 100 things and you order them from best to worst rating, there you go you have a list. Also, in effect all games with the same rating are like a group or tier. In theory you could create higher or lower groups comparative to each other for example if I play my favorite game that's 10/10, but if I then play a game that's even better, rather than having to manually decrease my rating for 99 different games I could just place that new game as best and everyone would know the rest are not as good by the fact they are in lower groups.

I believe I tried to explain all this back on Favslist but I'm not sure if I got through to anyone.

We met each other on UG, so it wasn't a complete waste, right? My life would've been less fun if I never knew you, msg, Klem, etc.

Though I see your point, of course.
