Hey Zak, some nice suggestions there.
Originally posted by zakrush1 Hey man, back to ask another request if it's possible, (i know you've done amazing job so far). I was wondering if you could add a message icon/button underneath the user's details on the left-hand side of a users comment. Just realised I was searching for it to message Remco about a query for the Top 50 Poll.
Will be done.

You've got the stars that rate everything on Trancepedia. By having the rating system, it doesn't have to be the be-and-end-all of ratings but at least, it'd be easy to see what's actually great to download/buy at some point. Also to have a filter that lets you see those top sets/tracks by year as well.
Most of this is already implemented. We have a tracks top 100 list which is calculated with the same algorithm that imdb uses to calculate its top 250 movies list.
However, we're waiting on officially releasing the list until we gather more votes and until more older tracks are added to the database. Right now, most of the tracks in the trancepedia are those mainly released in the past couple of years, so obviously this top 100 list "of all time" would be full of newer tracks.
That being said, here
's the link to the top 100 tracks in the trancepedia.
Lists like this will also be created for aliases, releases, labels and venues.
I highly encourage everyone to rank everything they come across. It only requires a single click, so hopefully more members will participate with their ratings, making the top lists more credible.
