Default Batch submit

Is there or will there be a way to do batch submissions? There are a number of albums I would gladly submit but I don't feel like typing it all by hand, one album at a time. Generating a XML file and uploading that, now that would be something else.

Hey, Pepak. There's no batch submit currently, but it is something that we could potentially do, and one of the longer term projects is to develop an interface that other sites can use to quickly execute an update (both adding to and taking from our database). I take it you have information for a bunch of albums stored in your own database format?

Well, right now all my CDs are just ripped to FLAC and resting on my harddrive, but extracting all necessary information from them should easy enough. I plan to do that anyway, as soon as I free up enough time to do it in one go.

Speaking of batch processing, a full list in some parsable format would help as well...

XML batch file? Sounds good to me. I'll look into it this weekend.
