First to address the OLD
There was an issue I have been having for weeks with the "release date" always displaying the date prior to the date I input.
This issue was previously addressed here: https://www.soundcloudcommunity.com/soundcloud/topics/why-does-soundcloud-change-my-release-date
This issue was still consistent, however now it's changed. After the new editing interface update, ALL
of my release dates, buy links, and catalogue numbers have been erased. Clearly the catalogue number section is gone completely, so that explains that.
So the obvious solution to this is to suck it up, and re-input those release dates and iTunes buy links into my 50+ playlists. Tedious and time consuming, but doable. In the midst of doing this, I had encountered yet ANOTHER
Now the NEW
After inputting the new buy links and release dates, and clicking the orange "save changes" button, both the buy link AND the CORRECT
(originally typed) release date display on the playlist page in the description. However, the success is short lived. Once I leave the page and return to it (or refresh it), I discover the buy link is missing, and the release date is turned back a day, like usual.
I go to see where the data I had just typed in was. They were gone. The buy link and release date had disappeared from BOTH
the editing page and the playlist page. In some instances, they may both remain on the playlist page, which is visible to all users, but never stay on the editing
page (only visible by me) post refresh.
I had this release date/buy link disappearing problem before the update, along with the label and catalogue number as well (basically all that displayed was the basic information). I failed to report it because it was only on occasion, and I didn't want to seem rude or selfish and pushy. I figured these bugs would be worked out at another time (or so i hypothesized).
I was mostly contempt with these issues because of the fact that they were not disappearing from the editing
page where you actually type in the information (not to be confused with the playlist
page). Basically, because the information still existed on the editing page, assuming this issue were to be fixed in the near future, I predicted it would reappear onto the playlist page in due time (according to my hypothesis
), and bygones would be bygones.
Finally, it might be worth mentioning that any of the playlists that were able to display the release date and buy link are still
displaying them on their playlist pages. Hypothetically, if I were to never edit any of them again, they would most likely remain there. This of course is not the case.
I apologize if this comes off as offensive, and if the information seems overwhelming or useless. This is only to prevent confusion and clarify every aspect of my issue as descriptively as possible.
