Artist pages - top fans

 
  • Artist pages - top fans

    I'm wondering if there's a problem with the 'top fans' calculation for artists.

    The 'top fans' chart for Clutch recalculated on Jan 19 (yesterday). I've got 828 listens and am not on the fans list - and there's at least 4 or 5 fans listed who have fewer listens than me but do appear on the 'top fans' page.

    I thought it might be something to do with the proportion of Clutch songs/total songs but my concentration is still higher than some of the people with fewer listens than me.

    I'm not too worried about it as I'm not someone who tries to bump their stats up artifically, but still curious as to why the pages don't quite seem to be working right.

    This is reported on a daily basis.

    Read the Known Issues

    Your sig is way too big. Those sigs are for "on your site" hence why you got them from an "on your site" section, not an "on your sig" section.

    No not at all, think of those on dial-up or small screen displays. I suggest you change it ;)

    I don't see the top fans glitch in the "Known Issues" sticky.

    But the issue was addressed in this thread:

  • But I'm compensating for the size of my...... music collection.

    That's not the point, I'm sure almost no one here could care less as to how big your music collection is, chances are someone else will have one bigger, not that it matters.

    Besides, as lozzd said, those images are for on your site and are not made for signature purposes.

    Quoth RJ:
    The Rules section may need updating, but i think it's pretty obvious that one of those sexy chart images with 10 items in it is way too tall to go into your forum sig. If anyone cares what your top 10 artists are, they can just visit your page. No need to stuff your forum sig with a 10-item chart image.
