Nice job DaN, the overhaul's certainly made it far more appealing to the eye.
Also, being able to easily access those 'Collectable labels & special selections' categories will make navigation far easier.
As set in my ways and resistant to change as i am, your new tweaks have greatly improved the compilopedia, (as if i didn't already spend waaay too much time poring over it!).

Yes! Love the pictures added. It's more fun and more appealing then just a link. It's like digging in some recordcrates now and let the cover attract you so see what's on the back.

Glad you liked too. When fiddling with this I also realised it's that time of the decade where I'll need to do another update to the design of the whole page, but more on that later & elsewhere...

The images and search filter definitely make it easier to navigate if looking for a specific item. Although I would have preferred a hybrid with images while still in an alphabetical list when searching for something new rather then a giant wall of pictures.

DaN, i wondered if you'd considered adding a section for comps that have no Metallic content?
Not meaning that you should expand the scope of the compilopedia to include all comps obviously, that would take forever & is well outside the site's remit. However, it occured to me that you, Keir & other contributors must have bought, borrowed or stolen many a comp hoping/expecting some Metallic or at least Hard Rock content only to find New Wave, Reggae or Psychobilly, so it could be a great help to felow diggers to have these 'false lead' records flagged up in order to save them from making the same mistake.
Maybe just a separate thread on the forum is called for rather than an actual addition the the compilopedia, but such a list would certainly be a go-to starting point for Metal minded comp diggers who stumble across a record not already listed in the databse.
And of course it would be entirely fair if you sold your copies of these Metal-free comps on before adding their names to the prospective 'beware' list and devaluing them.
:lol:
Just an idea.

They could easily be added to the "not metal" thread.

@kit: been thinking about this for a long time. I just haven't figured out what form this list would take. Maybe just a plain text list added at the bottom of the page would be the easiest solution. Currently I have a lot of different site projects running at the same time, so even such a relatively simple one like this might have to wait...

4 Belgian obscurities added together with the latest Belgian zine update. For the moment I'm not aware of any other Belgian local obscurities to add, so all tips are welcomed.

Undoubtedly the best contribution on this last lot. Cheers to Sander for the recommendation!

...and yes, there will be comps of most of the material from these last year's Local Comp-Mania.
