The amount of ‘no photo’ artists and bands is quite big on the site and it’s incredibly unclear how you could even add a picture somehow to begin with, who does it and why only those artists. There’s some bands and artists with ranked albums without a picture. It looks ugly, nobody benefits from it and with only so little actual pictures, it defeats the purpose of having a picture alltogether.
I’ve heard the copyright reason and all and that doesn’t make overly much sense to me, since we’re just ripping the album covers from an auto-add system most of the time, probably powered by Amazon of all things. How do you even add a picture? I think having more of those would make the website looks instantly more attractive to use, rather than seemingly offering the option to add a picture and then having so many ‘no photo’ profiles and pages.
