Such a stupid idea, why would you end up on the band's page if you didn't know their name? Plus, click on a release and, MAGIC the band name is right there.

Better have it and don't need it than need it and don't have it.

I didn't even know there was an update, I was just about to report it as a glitch :lol: It's ok, I'm more of a fan of the traditional look; I only had the problem of an illegible logo a few times, but clicking on a release works like a charm.

Honestly as I said, it's not very difficult to find the name of the band even if the logo is hard to read:: just put the arrow of your mouse on the logo and the name will clearly appear

I've never had problems reading a logo but the addition you guys made is very nice. I like it a lot.

Umm...yes it does, at least on Firefox 1.5.0.xx, by the way. Not sure about versions 2.0 and above.

It does work with a hight version of the Fx. I use 2.0.0.3 and the name is displayed if the arrow of the mouse is over the logo.

But the display of the name above the genre is only displayed if the entire framework of the MA-site is loaded. If the left-hand bar (with home, name, password etc.) is not seen, the name will not be displayed in clear-text and the field is missing.
