music player

i definitely think that the music player should open at the bottom of the page as before, so that when you scroll you still have access to the players buttons, that was a brilliant idea before but it didn't always work, it would be perfect if you could just improve it

    Thanks for the great feedback Raheel. We're working on a new and more robust audio player right now that will have some of these more advanced features.

    We've had other users suggest that the audio player be opened in a separate window so that they could listen to a playlist and surf to different pages. Would you prefer that over an audio player anchored to the bottom of the page?

    yes, the bottom of the page because of if you are listening to a song and reading comments on the bottom of the page, you will be able to pause/stop right from there. Also, some people like to read comments at the bottom, then pause if they have to go do something really quick. With the new site, the user would need to scroll all the way to the top, click pause, then when they come back, the will hit play again, BUT, they will need to scroll back down and try to find the last comment they read.

    If its a classic song, reviews can be in the hundreds, and trying to scroll all the way would be annoying.

    Thanks for reading,

    Thanks Marc, we'll definitely count this as a big vote for the bottom of the page. We've also got some neat updates in the works where we can paginate our longer comment threads and let you guys flip through them without having to refresh pages or interrupt the audio.

    Keep those ideas coming! We'll definitely do our best to make them happen.
