Some minor improvement suggestions

Just some minor improvements I think could be made based on the first few edits I've made:

Please consider changing the date format to yyyy-mm-dd, this is the ISO international standard and nobody outside of the US uses mm/dd/yyyy.

Allow multiple languages per album.

Add music labels for each album.

Allow (and prefer) PNGs for all pictures.

Input number of tracks instead of adding one at a time.

Extra info for tracks (cover? instrumental? etc.)

Edit posts in forum :p

Thanks for all the suggestions! I've added most of these to my coding to-do list.

PNGs: For now I want to stick with JPEG images. PNGs use more space and bandwidth, so I'd have to upgrade to a more expensive hosting plan.

Extra track info: Could you provide more examples of what you mean? Right now it's already possible to add a few notes, like if a track is a cover or remix.

Extra track info: stuff that's sometimes included in the track title but isn't in the particular case (and shouldn't be added to the title because of incorrect last.fm scrobbling and such), such as:
"Instrumental"
"Bonus Track"
"Live Version"
"From ... OST"
"Japanese/Korean/English Version"

Another small thing I noticed is that there's no easy way to go back to the album/artist page from the album editing page.
Also a few ideas from ManiaDB and Metallum: album running time, lyrics, composer/lyricist credits.

Add a feature that displays a last of current members of the band that is separate to the bio. Under the picture would be a good place as the main picture will usually include band members.

I second this... i think thats a great idea. And then you could link it to the members solo pages perhaps? like, instead of having that as a related artist at the bottom? You could just have sub groups down there etc?

Also, with the music labels... some artists have different labels in different countries.

So, for example, being able to select SM Ent as the Korean label and EMI as the Japanese label would be good! :)

oh and former labels too. So Block B have gone from Stardom Ent to Seven Seasons... ?

Tomorrow I'll start working on the code to add members (and info about them) to an artist's page. I also want to slightly redesign the artist pages. I'll hopefully have these updates up by Friday!
I might remove members from the "related artists" section. I'm not 100% sure how to best use that section yet.

I'll add multiple/previous artist labels to my to-do list. It might be a month or so until I get to it.

I think Instrumental should be an option for language.

I already wrote on the wall of admin, but I see it has a thread on the forum so here suggestion again.
* It will be better to separate at first artists by Countries*, I mean -to just add finding artists by choice of country, so beside finding artists by genre tag when I click on the buttnon ''more'' , 2nd option would be finding artists by prefered countries.
Since for example me like Rock genre but I don't want recommendation from other countries beside Japan. Or for Jazz if I want to search for some bands from America.
In the falling menu would be nice if you make 2 options by genre and by country.

and for the linked options, if you can make it to open to separate window or tab openning, and not just redirection on the same page, I am especially referring only to cases like editing something or updating profile. (for example when I updated profile today, on Website section I clicked linked words ''Suggest new site'' and it redirected me drirectly to the admin page and I didn't save previously what I wrote about myself in description not knowing it ouldn't open in different tab).
