FEEDBACK WANTED: Changing album name of OC ReMixes to "ocremix.org"?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, we're likely changing the album field for all of the individual OC ReMixes to just "ocremix.org" -- without http:// or our recent change to https://.

It would potentially future-proof that field vs other eventual prefix changes to the website URL, although we haven't had that many in the first place.

Here's where I need your feedback: are there any services/programs where you think our discoverability would be negatively affected by making this change to just "ocremix.org" as the album title?

As far as I can tell, there aren't many services like Last.fm that people use anymore, and some scrobbling-style services won't even display full website URLs as album titles. I can't think of any compelling reason not to change it, but if you have one, please let me know. :-)

Because I'm last.fm user I'm always changing album name to OverClocked ReMix.

Track won't be scrobbled to last.fm if website's address is used as an album's name.

Can't see any reason the prefix needs to stay, most browsers fill it in automatically anyway (and may even default to https if it's available). If it's time to let it go, then so it goes.

Having the http/https prefix on there has been rather annoying. (The car stereo I frequently use will slowly scroll the album title because it is just a little too long for the display, instead of just showing it briefly and moving on). Like Radiowar said, even if one is using a different media player, it is nice to sort by album, tap "o" and jump straight there.

No complaints here.

I think that's a cool idea!

One of the things I used to do was change the genre to "OverClocked ReMix" so that I could find them all in one place, including OCR albums.

I've always preferred OverClocked ReMix as the album title, which what I used before you guys standardized the ID3 tags way back when.

As long as you pick a standard and keep to it, though.  The whole reason I came across this thread was noticing the album names have been swapped around the past couple months, and wanting to find what to switch them all to.
