I have a few suggestions for the chart editor...hopefully they're not repeats. The first two are problems I see with the unwieldy mobile editor, and aren't so much an issue on PC.

1.) The "Instructions" field at the top of the editor compounds the already excessive verticality of the mobile site, can it be reduced to a simple text link? I did finally notice that there's an X to close it just now (it's hard to see), but it'd be better to not have to close it every time I edit a chart.

2.) The "Pick from favorites/ratings/collection/listened" tools utterly dominate the mobile editor. Is it necessary to list these for each and every chart entry? They're also a little confusing, in the first place. If I use one of these options for, let's say, my #1 entry, will that entry be overwritten or will a new entry be inserted? Is it possible for these options to only appear when adding a new entry?

3.) The "Pick from favorites/ratings/collection/listened" tools aren't helpful in a way that makes sense. For instance, when editing a decade chart, none of the tools filter out albums that aren't from that decade. They are greyed out, but they're still listed and in the way. The "Pick from listened" tool would be extremely useful (extremely) to me for adding albums to year or decade charts, but as it is, it presents me with 1600 albums spread across 81 pages. Is it possible to get these tools to automatically filter out (and remove) unusable albums? Most importantly, albums from wrong years or decades, and albums that already appear in the chart (this is another big problem).

4.) Add a button at the top of the page that jumps you to the final entry.


No pressure here, but these are problems that I see.

Can anyone give any input on whether or how they use the "Pick from.." tools?

Hi, thanks for taking the time to give this useful feedback, it's much appreciated. I must admit to not using the chart editor enough on mobile Embarassed which is probably why some of these issues exist. I like the idea of hiding the instructions on mobile (and have the site remember the visibility state between visits).

The site could definitely look at hiding the 'Pick from...' options and only show them for the entry that is being actively edited. Agree, these lists could also be a bit smarter for year/decade lists and ineligible albums could be hidden (overlooked some people have fairly big lists of favs/ratings etc which must be quite unwieldy.) A jump to bottom link would also be a good addition. I'll add all of these ideas to the list and schedule them for development as soon as possible. Please bear with me for a short while as a few other things need looking at as well.
