blog post Report New Usability Features Released

Over the weekend we released some new features! We believe these updates make Uvumi more user-friendly and will help cut down on some of the confusion that many new users experience:

* Player song queue now auto-expands on mouseover. For many new users, it wasn't immediately clear that the player window could be expanded by clicking a hard-to-notice icon on the black bar beneath it. So we changed the way it works, and we think it will help novice and advanced users alike. So far I am a big fan of this change, especially since the player queue can be "pinned" open (look for the red push-pin icon when expanded) and you still have the ability to re-size the queue height if you want.

* Profile management tabs! Finally, a solution to the confusing nature of managing band profiles alongside your personal profile. Have a look at your Dash to see how this works. Basically, you always know which profile you're working on based on which tab is active at the top of the content part of the page.

* Quick search: Olivier made the search box at the top of each page much more useful! Give it a try! It pre-loads your friends and favorites so you can get to their profiles MUCH faster when you search, completely bypassing the search results page!

* Spam control improvement -- We updated our flagging system to help us remove spam comments faster and more effectively. Please, if you see spam comments on any profile on the site, flag the comment and flag the user who left the comment. We'll take care of the rest!

There might be a couple of bug fixes in this update I forgot to mention, but the important improvements are outlined above. If you don't like it or you have any feedback, let us know!

    I'd like to add that the quick search is still a work in progress. I still want to make the suggestions more effective. Also, I'd like to extend it to the music search, based on songs you liked
