i'm so glad someone brought this up, cos i'm still not sure why we have/need two download buttons.. and the suggestion here about turning the heart's right boob into a 'respond to this record' is pretty much exactly what i was thinking about, too... since, that feature was taken out (justly) in the previous site revision :)

I thought it was always an "add to" button for adding a record to collabs...
it's like that now. Am I imagining things and they only just recently changed it?

I might as well ask, because I've been wondering, can you only add your own records to a collab or album? I seem to recall that we could add other peoples records to collabs and albums as well.

You can add anyone's records to your own album, but only your own records to a collab.

What is "respond to this record"? That might predate me joining. Is it different from commenting on a record?

Maybe that would be a good spot to introduce a feature that lets you follow a record (so you'll get comments on it to your dashboard or something - useful if you've commented and want to see replies).

gahh.. no, you're right "respond to this record" does sound wonky now that i'm saying it aloud. but do you remember how we use to get tons of error RECords cos people created REsult RECords by typing something in the title bar of the REmark box? well that title bar is gone (thank goodness).. but this also means the ability to purposefully create a REsult RECord is gone, too. so that's what i mean (and i'm pretty darn sure this is what wirrow means, cos i remember having this conversation with him in one of the threads, last time they updated the site).. oooh duh.. just change the heart's right boob to "create result record" heeheh. there ya go.

i agree that the two download buttons thing should be addressed. i would like to see the speech bubble icon for comments moved back up the top of the page - perhaps it could replace one of them.

I also miss being able to comment on collaborations.

Did anyone notice that you can download records with the new download button even when you aren't signed in? Anyone visiting the site can download our records.

Oh I am a dork - didn't even notice the grey download button over the portrait - duh...
totally misinterpreting the issue.

But - thanks for that clarification on the add-to sfdetrioter!

I strongly prefer the idea of the right boob as the download button and the speech bubble replacing this grey button. Or just scrap the grey button - it's redundant. It seems the simplest solution and I always liked the heart "triumvirate" from a design perspective.

Commenting on collaborations would be nice.

Good the download button is back, the download button has returned, prepare to be reunited with Joe's download button, because downloading files from hitrecord is better than viewing them on hitrecord.
