To help you navigate the long list of cover versions, we have expanded the "Highlights" section with a series of qualitative/subjective tags. A few examples:

Feel free to make suggestions on how we can further improve the visualization of our cover songs!

Sent a reply request to all editors as a heads up Smile

I continue to hold the position that an additional column on the Versions tab that shows these tags would be far more effective.

It's very wonderful that you put a display on cover, depending on popularity. I like that. Consider this read. Happy

Read. Although I think this is very arbritrary. I.e. I think the Leonard Cohen version is far better than the Jeff Buckley one. So I don't support the idea.

Qualitative tags are by definition arbitrary and subjective. It's the whole idea Smile

However, I see this feature evolve in a tagging-system that is individual, and the definitive version would become the one with the most definitive tags.

Go to any work or performance, you will find a Highlights Tab.

It's a good start Smile Big thanks to you and Mathieu for implementing phase one.

A few suggestions from me:

1. I'd certainly include "hit songs" in the highlights tab. This will extend beyond those marked as "more famous than the original".

2. I'd consider displaying more than just one performance in each category. There's enough space on the page.

3. Do we really still need "I Feel Lucky"?

And a few technical points:

1. The highlights tab is currently still displaying above the versions tables. Presumably this is not necessary anymore?

2. Will performances with a Spotify link and no YouTube video display on the highlights tab? I hope so.

3. How is the "popular" category identified? It often produces some counterintuitive suggestions.

Based on hits.

I'd like to keep just one, as I see each header as a future entry to a new page giving the full ranking of the tag in question.

Got it now.

1) I think your calling the "Tags" button, the "Highlight Tab" .


2) The "Editor's Pick", I see once an editor picks it another editor can't do the same. Or you can't undo it, if you picked it yourself.

Agree. I'd like to see those user-specific in the future.
