    I looked to do this today, but unfortunately there's no way to contribute a "sophisticated" custom rule at the moment. I'll have to build this into a new version...

    Yep, ok. You're right, I'd like to build in a script editor, but haven't got to this yet.

    The other thing is that the regex rules which are the "dumbed down" custom rules don't allow variables (e.g. the artist) to be specified - instead they expect a literal string or a string using the groups captured in the regex.

    However there is a more sophisticated type of custom rule, used by some of the rules shipped with bliss, that might work. I'll try to get some time to look at this tomorrow.

    Regarding the choice of albums - this can of course be done at the moment by pointing bliss at different folders, but that's obviously cumbersome!

    I would break this down to two parts.

    The latter part is to an extent already done - https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/10/25/setting-various-artists-name/

    The former part is the "If artist is beatles" bit. This I disagree with and would like to see the same basic principle achieved as per https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/08/01/ruleset-selecta/ . This avoids too much logic in the rules.

    Can you send us a debug archive for this - "Help" > "Download debug archive"? Thanks!

    We haven't been able to replicate this. We have tried having an album with half one genre, half another, and no AA tags. We have then used both the album's "edit" button to change the genre but this worked regardless of AA tags...

    Thanks for this extra detective work, it will make it easier to find the issue!

    This sounds like an odd one. Can you recreate it, then send a debug archive to us at support@blisshq.com. Could you also send the exact steps?

    This should happen. Can you send a debug archive to support@blisshq.com and we can look into the cause?

    I would prefer to do this by making the website as responsive and mobile friendly as possible. Were there particular areas you found hard to use?

    The only way to make this faster is, as you say, to scan a subset of folders, such as just the root. However I'm having trouble framing that as an option - seems a bit too technical for some to understand.

    Maybe the ability to import/add a folder would be better?

    In theory this is simple, but to reduce confusion I think we'd also have to clearly indicate when the saved rules are different to those that were last used to assess albums (we could call them "dirty" or "unassessed" or something).

    Do you mean the label etc should be considered when scoring and auto linking releases?

    Nice idea. Also, latest albums, or stats (% compliant etc).

    I guess this is the other side of http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2739754-automatically-complete-album-artist

    i.e. if there's no consistent artist, use "Various" (or whatever you want!)

    The capitalisation rule only works on existing tags... is that what you mean? It doesn't use any online resources.

    If you make a copy of these files you're sorted: https://www.blisshq.com/support/faq/general/move-new-computer.html

    You will need to use ssh to log into the QNAP to find the source folder, and then potentially scp to copy the files.

    See: https://www.qnap.com/en/how-to/knowledge-base/article/how-to-access-qnap-nas-by-ssh/

    Could definitely be done!

    Just in case anyone wondered how to do it manually...: https://www.blisshq.com/support/faq/general/move-new-computer.html

    This is a bug - bliss should delete empty folders.

    Can you send a debug archive to support@blisshq.com? "Help" > "Download debug archive". This will show the files that were left inside the folder - probably hidden files.

    Oh, I see. Yes, I agree. I think a better filter would be useful - I see you've already seen http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2591793-add-ability-to-filter-and-print-the-activity-log

    @mactigerman - the message is saying bliss *has* ignored that folder. The folder consists of files with .mp3 extensions but they aren't mp3s, they are metadata of some sort that the Synology stores.

    Is that what you expected?

    @eaDir folders should be ignored already, as should most image files and desktop.ini files.

    Does this relate to moving files, or are you saying the album isn't even being scanned or shown in the UI?

    Could you send a debug archive? "Help" > "Download debug archive". It should show any files that stopped old folders being removed in the event of folder movements.

    While it still rescans, the new version of bliss should have some improvements to rescan speed; it now caches fingerprints (a big deal on Synology and other lower speed devices) and lookup results across versions.

    I like it. I believe AcousticBrainz might do this, e.g. https://acousticbrainz.org/7eef7a92-e282-4cf7-89a4-c35d39ff3d4d .

    Do you mean show them all as a single entry in Sonos or bliss?

    Are these re-releases of previous releases in one box-set release?

    Nice idea! Alongside playlist generation...

    We don't actually use AcousticBrainz - we use Acoustid for fingerprinting, maybe you're getting mixed up with that?

    No reason we can't use AcousticBrainz, of course...
