1. UGP Playlist.
There's no more necessity to bookmark all profiles to listen to your favorite songs that other UGers made. You are now able to compose your own playlist from your favorite tracks!

Every song has an "Add" link in its stats string. Just click this link to add the song to your playlist. That's easy, isn't that? And now you may to ask: "Cool! But where is my playlist?!" It's located on you public profile page. For example: http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/Dyuha/ There is an additional tab under your player if you have one. Otherwise there's just a playlist on you index profile page.

When you open your playlist page for the first time there are two fields -- Playlist title and Playlist Description. You could fill them to name and describe you playlist! The rest is all clear there I hope.

You can add songs from the users' profile and from the bands' ones as well.

2. My mp3 Listeners.
If you have any mp3s uploaded to your profile -- you are now able to see who have listened to them. You just need to go to "My mp3s" option from the user menu and then click on My Listeners link.

There is a list of the users that have listened to your songs for the last month, but the max number of listeners we are store is 20. There is a date and time then every user has listened to the latest song and the total number of songs listened. This info is fo the last 24 hours. If the user have listened to any song later than 24 hour from his latest listening -- all previous records are removed.

I hope it's all clear as well

3. Friendship requirements.
As you might know -- we've added a necessity to write some text to send a friend request recently. And now there is a possibility to configure a reception of friend requests more efficiently. Go to "Account Settings" -> "Friendship" and choose what other users have to get filled in their profiles for being able to add you to their friends list. That means in case you want to receive friend requests from users that have uploaded at least one mp3 file -- just choose that option from the list and the users without mp3s won't be able to even send you a friend request.

Hope it would be helpful.

4. Band's mp3s.
You were able to configure a number of tracks that are shown on you profile, but you weren't able to do that for your own band's profile. And now you can! Just go to "Edit Band Profile" and configure an mp3 player settings!

That's all for today. We hope all these new features will be useful for you.
Any comments/suggestions are appreciated.

So I'm just wondering a couple things. :)
1: Is there any way to tell if your songs are on peoples playlists? Like under 'My Listeners' is there a way that you can see who has your songs on their list?
2: If your song is on someones playlist and they listen to it, will it count as song plays, and will it go under the 'My Listeners' section?

Thanks
:cheers:

1. not yet. we are planning to launch an UGP Log where all users actions on your profile will be shown. and you'll be able to see if someone add your song to the playlist.

2. both answers are 'yes' :)

if you're set to invisible, do you appear under the recent listeners option?

I'm interested in finding out if this will improve the usage of Groups.
As it is right now, people who are members of many groups rarely check them for new activity.
UGP Log might change that.

hard to say when we will launch it 'cause it's on the planning phase now.

yeah, you'll be able to keep track of information about any activity of your friends and on your own/bands/groups profiles.
