Please try to provide as much information as possible so we can research them and add them.
No one here is getting a salary - so the help you provide is appreciated.

6 Jan Upgrade Update

The news for 6 Jan 2017

  • Proggnosis scored 99 out of 100 from Google for mobile compatibility. This will raise our profile in google search results.
    This was before I installed the forum, but I think this should not be a problem.

  • The new Forum is on line. if a page crashes while in the forum, just refresh the browser and it will probably display properly.

  • Forum guests can create threads and reply to topics within our major headings.
    But we are hoping for an ongoing community so we do wish people would create a logon at the Main Proggnosis Web page.

  • Proggnosis is a secure web site - - Https.
    calls to proggnosis.com or http://www.proggnosis.com automatically redirects to the Https prefix.
    Sure - we don't sell things on Proggnosis but for very little cost and a lesson in setting up certificates redirects and secure web sites - I have been able to ensure your logon and other submissions and activities are encrypted and protected.
    I recently read that Google wants all sites to have security certificates. I imagine that this is a good time to get ahead of the game. Perhaps it will raise our profile in Google search results.

  • Release History fixed up.
    You can enter either a Date or a Year of release. A label name is no longer a required entry.
Most everything required to upgrade and update the site is complete. There are still a few things - and I am sure I will hear about bugs to fix.
There is a topic in this forum to submit bug issues and to submit suggestions, ideas and compliments. All are welcome - especially the last one - compliments.

Regards,
DBSilver

7 Feb 2017 Upgrade - The Best Of Year Builder

Good news. I have made it very easy now to build Best Of Year lists.

After you are logged on - select My Lists from the menu and then choose Best of Year Builder. Follow the simple instructions that appear. Please let me know what you think of this new feature!

The Best of Year designations help you to keep track of what albums you liked most for any given year. As the years and decades move on, it is easy to forget if you liked something. Your best of year list can serve as a memory jog - to remind you of something so that you might think to listen to it again.

Your Best of Year selections are totaled with others selections to form the ProGGnosis Best Of Year listings which can draw your attention to something new to try on the recommendations of others.

Please build up your lists to share and help us all.

I have displayed a small blue diamond next to the release name when the item was received as a promotional item.

So far this diamond appears for promos on:
  • the release detail page itself.
  • the search results pages.

it has not been done on the home page grids/lists.

Two ways to see this: go to advanced search and
search Results where Releases added to the ProGGnosis Database on: '6/6/2017'

Or go to an actual promo release: https://www.proggnosis.com/Release/50624

I have just completed a project where I replaced/upgraded the coverscans shown on Proggnosis for just around 1420 listings - the majority of them were for listings for videos and cassettes though there were others (CDs and LPs) as well.

RIP Don Satuloff (Satch / DixieDregs)

We morn the passing and honor the memory of our friend Don Satuloff (aka Satch, DixieDregs) who left us on 6 Aug after an 18 month battle with cancer.
Don was an original member of Proggnosis and he was the one who gave this web site its' name.
Don knew more music than just about anyone and his love for his family, of music, of hot sauces and of craft beers were a common topic of conversation.
Our thoughts are with his wife Natalie and daughter Charlie.
