    Wow, I've got to say I'm impressed that you're so open with the redesign of the site. The transparency is appreciated. I will also say I miss the grids of new/trending music videos. That was a huge reason why I kept coming to this site. It was an easy way to discover an array of current/new-to-me music. So, I hope that feature comes back or, if it's still there somewhere, it becomes more noticeable. It was convenient on the homepage.

    Can I suggest to promote that "color change appearance" when you open a certain topic/mv/or any links on JPA or that "CSS" thing so that it would be easier for us to determine when we already clicked/opened that topic.

    I hope it would be applicable later.

    The trending vids on the old version is basically the same as the two row version you see now below the trending news. How it determines trending videos work the same way, the only difference is that it's more separated by genre now.

    Just a question: How would you level a song to be on the trending videos?

    Like the songs of BlackPink, It's a trending video yet  I don't see it on the trending videos. Thanks. .

    Almost forgot to ask this but will there still be a forum ranking system?

    Is the true fanned system going to be the same as before? I really liked the true fanned list on the side of the wall like it was before. It made it really easy for me to go on the bands I liked's pages. So hopefully that will be back or at least a variation of it.

    I set my profile to be view in public using the settings, but when someone views my profile, it was still hidden >.<
    Moreover, I added new albums/singles but they didn't appear on an artist's certain discography page.
    Lastly, I dunno whether we shall make again a topic for an artist since the forums were unavailable. And I hope true fan function will return :)

    Thanks for the hardwork!

    Is it possible if it will be done in everything we click? not only on the trending topics but also in clicking names especially in welcoming new users for example.

    I have a question.

    When we're following an artist, will we get notified in some way if that band/artist is coming out with new music? (like albums, singles, EPs, etc. Not just MVs)

    i dont know where to post this, but is there a chance to add "emotional" to the mood vote for songs, it is a missing mood that fit many songs.

    The trending videos here are determined by the most viewed videos in the past 24 hours with a sliding window. If blankpink doesn't appear (yet) it means she's climbing up or that not enough people have watched her video yet.

    We don't send notifications and emails out yet to followers, but once we implement this, popular artists will quickly reach the frontpage. By time with more followers the trending videos section will become better. Also upvoting the video helps but it's something ppl need to get used to yet.

    I think it's complicated because one factor would be on the process of adding and approving videos. And one more thing, we can't hide the fact that kpop are more viewable in youtube unlike jpop and jrock are rare to see it on youtube because it's not available on some places. As for me, I always come on this site because I can't view on youtube mostly jpops and jrocks.

    Therefore the notifications to followers will help a lot. We'll look at it coming week. The video views are based on our own views not on YT views. Also it's separated by genre so popular kpop videos can't bubble up to the jpop section like it could be on the old version.

    Is the process of adding and approval of videos the same?? Is there a possibility that new mvs added will also be featured? Like that of "Celebrity" page in the previous JPA version?

    Yes same.

    You already see videos featured in the frontpage. They are marked with [MV]

    Maybe not in the way as in the old version but we are thinking of an "medals & honors" system. You won't see a ranking but you'll get a medal attached to your user profile for example "Most posts in forums - August 2016"

    Got it. Thanks for the suggestion too why you liked it, helps a lot determining the value of it. Btw why did you use those shortcuts? To get easily to their videos?

    Anyway it will come back!

    Yeah, I used the shortcuts to get to their videos, and I also check their discography quite often when I'm sharing them with other people so it made it super easy. Another option could be to be able to click on the artist link in the following page and being able to go to their page. When I tried doing that, it just unfollowed the band.

    Its not only that but the true fan system was fun, also looking on someones wall an knowing what he likes and through the ranking who his favourites are was really practical, following is just not the same.

    Yes definitely. It will show up in the feed with priority and marked with a star. Coming weeks you will receive an email and possibly appear in your notifications.

    We will launch an "honours and medals" where you will be able to receive all kinds of trophies. In the old version we never came to it but promise we'll launch it before the end of the year
