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...
