Beautiful to see the old UI back. Responsive on all platforms!
Thank you and a very happy new year to you as well.

This is awesome. What is up with the coloured usernames? What does it mean?

I can't tell you how happy this makes me! I've missed t61, the music, and the community so much. I've searched but there's really nothing else quite like it. Thank you!!

It feels bizarre to be so enthusiastic about the old format coming back. Like I should feel bad for not liking the one it changed to enough that I wandered off. Collectively, we seem to be both the most and least loyal fans possible of the sixtyone.

But thank you for the change. I'm already frittering away my day wandering around through the lists again.

Great to hear the old t61 is back. I really missed it. As someone already pointed out, I'd like to know about the future plans too. And if there's any help needed, I'm in. There is no site like the old t61

@shady

It's unfortunate all around because I know that there was time and effort put into the new design but it just wasn't user friendly.

Thanks so much! Was always a great site, and I, like so many others, discovered some of my favorite music here. Looking forward to being back!

All the best,
ks

I'm glad to see it's all back, for what it's worth I didn't mind the revived design from a few years back.
Would love to know what happened, also curious if there are plans to release a mobile app

The design itself wasn't bad per se, what ticked the majority of users off mostly was the removal of communicative features (groups, user walls, artist walls, etc), and the way in which overnight with little forewarning things were changed like that.

Hi Sam,

It's great to see so many people finding there way back. There is a lot more competition now though. So, I'd like to make a few suggestions for making the site for more artist friendly. I believe you might be surprised how much impact these relatively small changes could make. Let's make this place the most friendly place on the earth for artists and listeners.

1) On the artists page, the default song order should be able to be set by the artist. Someone with five pages of songs gets their newest song on page 5. Very few artists would want it there. When someone browses their pages, they hear their oldest music first. Which leads to the second thing too.

2) If an artist deletes a song, everyone loses credit for it. That might have made sense in the beginning, but people have so many songs, they should be able to delete some without penalty. It would get rid of the clutter and also reduce your storage costs.

3) There should be a box listeners can click to bring up lyrics. The artist would input them, and they would be available to anyone who wanted to read them.

There are other smaller things too, but those are the ones that would give you the biggest bang for the buck.

@Slinger, There is a 'newest' tab on artists' pages, so some of the functionality you want is already there. The default is currently set to the "popular" tab (which isn't necessarily the oldest songs first). Perhaps if the artists could set their own default tab.

I like your suggestions 2 and 3, though.

just a suggestion @Slinger. I'm fearful that your suggestions will get lost in an announcement thread. Maybe if you posted in the "features request" some other artists can or will also chime in on your suggestions. idk. just a thought.
