Default Feature Requests: Artist rating + search

Why not add an option to use the little search bar at the top of the page to search through the artists database? It could be an option in the dropdown list.

Also, we should be able to rate the artist itself on his own page, instead of using the average of the album ratings, as that can be misleading overall.

You can search by artist through the advanced search options. As for artist rating, well, if an artists makes shit albums, that will be justly reflected through their rating. I don't see how it is mis-representative.

Well, it could be misleading because artists aren't in full control of which albums their works appear on. Doujin ratings are taken into account too, and the artist's work might only be featured there as arrangements or remixes. I could add another rating field.

There's going to be a better interface for searching and browsing multiple categories.

Along with what Gigablah mentioned about doujin albums, it's also mis-representative if, say, an artist performs only one decent song on an otherwise completely crap album.

Good to hear about the plans for better searching.
