    Is there a way to get notifications from Discogs when something in your want list becomes available? Or available at a certain price?

    They'll send you a 'digest' email every so often (I get mine a few times a day) with updates on items on your want list, as long as you haven't disabled it in your account settings. If you're asking if there is a better way to know exactly when a hot item is listed and not wait for a digest/daily email roundup, nope. You have to check it yourself often to snag up the rare stuff.

    I know it's free and all...but Discogs really kind of sucks.

    Vinyl people don't like anything to be easy.

    Do you think it's possible that those of us in the big city could stumble upon some undiscovered, hidden ethnic conclave that has a plethora of Blue Note Japan King series, just laying around for affordable prices?

    Hey if this is tips and secrets.......

    What do the colored segments on the left of the screen represent. I've tried to make sense of it but.....

    This is in the "stats" layout view.

    It's a database color code that tells you the data quality of the submission.

    No bar = Correct

    Yel = New submission needs vote

    Gry = (Recent) edits have been made, not reviewed yet

    Red = Minor or Major edits needed​

    I want a tip so that I don't have 10 new messages every time I log in about entries being merged.

    I disagree wholeheartedly, and the few things that I have problems with they seem to be on top of. Every update the app has is great and improves the app, allowing me to not have to go onto the actual site very often

    Its good for maintaining a database of a personal collection. Aside from that, I just don't know.
    2 things I can think of quickly: I think photos should be required on sales and you should be able to "follow" an album you want to buy.

    You can disable those in your notifications settings ;)

    Got a Seller review before dude even got the album; I just mailed it yesterday. "Super fast response time and easy communication. A very pleasant transaction."

    but its also good if your collection starts getting pared down because they removed the selection from the database. I know I definitely am missing a few entries.

    Do you get notifications that they are about to remove an entry? Not merge but remove? Because I haven't and I'm missing probably 100+ by now

    I don't recall ever getting one, and I definitely had at least 5 drop off that I had to add back last time I was organizing my collection.

    No I don't but i do make note of the merge on a white board near my desk and check back later to make sure it's still in my collection. i only started doing that recently so a whole sweep through my collection is very much needed.

    What are your findings? Because I have checked on merged albums and those don't seem to be the ones disappearing.
