The RBN Store opened just a matter of hours ago, but I've already noticed some posts here and there discussing some things that could be improved upon. I would like to see ideas for improvement shared in this thread.
Here's some questions to think about: What don't you like about the current setup? Do you consider the issues you have with it minor or major? How would you do it differently?
I'll get the ball rolling:
Browse the whole store's offerings at once.
It's been mentioned that making the entire store available for browsing at once (like the regular Music Store) would be nice. People are finding it inconvenient the way it is right now. The workaround at this point for many people has been to sort by English to view nearly all of the songs at once. This groups them up by 100 at a time.
Caveat: Perhaps it's been created this way because it will soon become infeasible to display all the songs at once for browsing, considering the expected high influx of songs.
Include a sorting option by price.
Do you only have 100MSP left on your account? Only want to see the 80MSP songs on offer? This seems like it could be a pretty neat and useful option.
List the duration of each song.
I remember when Nothing's Shocking was released that someone bought "Thank You Boys" because they liked the sound of the preview. He complained about paying full price considering just how short the song actually was. Some people let him know that he could have researched the song prior to buying it.
Now with the RBN, there is going to be a huge amount of content that simply can't be researched adequately. Some of these songs have never even been publicly released before the RBN. It's really, really great that people can demo the songs, but it would be even better if people had a clearer idea of what they were getting by listing the length of the song in the details.
Please comment on previous ideas and/or post your own!
