  1. Make this website more popular.

    There is almost nobody on this website. It's not very helpful because nobody ever knows what song it is.

    I only found out about it from reading an article after Googling "how to find what song this is".

  2. User should get alerted on the index page when there is new mail in mailbox ("1 new message")

    Hi, since this is a bit time-consuming to always check mailbox for possible WZS-internal mail, the user should get an alert like "1 new message" if there is a new message incoming.
    I've had it many times that I wrote to users and they apologized after 4 weeks that they never looked in their mailbox before.

    How could they, anyway, if they did not *know* they got a new message?
    As I wrote above, users will only very rarely check haphazardly whether they got new mail.

    And no, the e-mail notification that there is a new message in the mailbox…

  3. With requests created in the old site, we need to know who the person is (if they reply)

    (This only applies for requests created before the WZS relaunch in end-January this year.)

    Some people still have these open and unsolved, and discussions have come a long way in the comments.
    Unless your 'user detector' works perfectly, it can't be determined which of the user is the person who created the request.

    I've made the mistake many times by commenting "I think this user won't reply any more". But he was there!! I was simply unable to figure him out between the many users that commented.

    So it would be nice if you could 'mark' him somehow, a similar…

  4. Confirm button needs better feedback to show that the file is uploading.

    Just changing the button to say 'uploading' would work just fine. Before I realized it was working I clicked it several times and got multiple errors. Confusing.

  5. A direct ling to the sample in the tweet

    That would just be the basic of sharing. When I click on "Share" on Tweeter. It just writes the #whatzatsong. It should bring a ling to the sample, so my followers can come and help directly, instead of looking for my contrib...

  6. Cannot upload some tracks

    Sometimes when I upload a track cut with I_tunes or converted with switch, the uploading doesn't work. I've got this error message

    1ffmpeg -ss 0 -t 30 -i '/var/www/watzatsong/releases/20120224210252/src/WZS/APIBundle/Entity/../../../../web/uploads/tmp/samples/03 Blue yster Cult-Dominance And Submission 1.mp3' -acodec libmp3lame -ac 2 -ar 32000 -ab 96k '/var/www/watzatsong/releases/20120224210252/src/WZS/APIBundle/Entity/../../../../web/uploads/samples/f196b7ce182c7e402270d43b41edebde.mp3'uploading.error

    Does someone know the solution?

  7. bouton d'aide / help bouton

    Bonjour,

    il serrait peut être bien d'ajouter un bouton d'aide sur la première page pour décrire les règles de formats, taille et durée des fichiers envoyés
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Helo,

    it could be great to adding en help bouton on the main page to describe the rules for upload à file (like format, size or time...)

  8. Don't accept questions without a genre.

    Or at least make the number of answers present at all times.
    I not like wasting time clicking on songs that have already been answered.

    Thanks, very interesting idea and site. Good luck.

  15. [bash (Linux/*nix/Cygwin)] 'wzsget': short 4-liner to d/l mp3 samples off WZS

    It only needed me 4 lines to write a short simple bash 4-liner that can (w)get me the samples I need to download to my HDD. Thought I'd share it here. Cut and paste and name it 'wzsget' or 'wzsget.sh' if you insist.

    USAGE: wzsget <number>
    So if you're l33t, 'wzsget 31337' will get you sample #31337.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    #!/bin/bash

    destfile=$(wget http://www.watzatsong.com/en/name-that-tune/$1.html -O- -q | awk '/big.*sample=/{print}' | grep -o 'http[^"]*')
    wget -q $destfile -O $1.mp3
    echo -e "Downloaded $destfile to current directory.\nFile saved as $1.mp3."

  17. Gratulation

    Ihr habt WZS auf Grund gesetzt analog der Costa Concordia. Eine Website weniger, auf der man gerne seine Zeit vertrödelt.

    Schwachpunkte
    - jetzt muss man sich die Samples bis zum bitteren Ende anhören, obwohl das nur selten der Wunsch ist. Wie stellt man sie vorzeitig wieder ab?
    - das alte Songnummern-System ist komplett auf den Kopf gestellt worden, man findet nichts mehr. Ich habe mir eine Menge Nummern notiert zur Bearbeitung. Speziell weh tut mir die vormalige Nummer 292821, für die ich mehr als 50 Stunden aufgewendet habe, bisher leider ohne Erfolg.

    Zu diesem genialen Wurf gibt es von meiner…

  19. Sign-in trouble?

    I read here and there that people got signup problems. I can confirm this on Konqueror (Linux, Gnome) where the iframe pops up but neither button works for clicking.
    Below there is a somewhat hackish method that worked for me:

    - go directly to
    http://www.watzatsong.com/en/sign-up-form?iframe

    - login as normal

    (don't be surprised nothing happens, that's because everything happens behind curtains :))

    - go to http://www.watzatsong.com

    ...and you should be logged in! :-P

  20. How to cope with the number of song requests?

    Firstly, I think this is a fantastic concept - truly the best way to identify songs & music. One of the main problems I see is that with the
    number of song identification requests made every day, a request only appears on the front page for perhaps a couple of hours before it is pushed down the queue onto the next page of the listings never to be looked at again. If anyone else is like me, I rarely look past the first or second page. What I think would help is a way of listing by category or searching…
