Oof! One sec..

Moving from Freebase to Wikidata was a real adventure! So, I searched all the far reaches of the internet to see how I could use the data from Wikidata for Veboli. Short summary, I couldn't!

That wasn't fun news, but I just kept going and found Musicbrainz. A gigantic music database with a powerful API. Perfect!

All I had to do was tweak all the actions and processes so they'd be adapted to the new system. That took a lot of time. But luckily it wasn't just adjusting, I also improved an important process! Freebase and Musicbrainz both lack a song entity. They instead have 'release group', 'release', 'recording', and 'work'. I both simplified and improved the algorithm that determines what a song is. I would go so far as to say it's more or less perfect :D

In the coming weeks, I'm gonna work on transferring your ratings to the new system and carry out a new calculation of the similarity between bands.

Finally, I have unfortunately had to (temporarily!) remove books and games. I hope to add these two fun parts back before the end of the year. And of course your ratings for books and games will be saved until then!
