More organization in the RE store

Props database already includes, per user, for each RE, at least tried/non-tried status and bough/not-bought status. I would be just adding a third flag, hidden/not-hidden.

I'm not sure if it should be overridden by updates, as that could be abused by pushy developers, unless Props are very strict on what they demand for an update. But as I see no other effective way, it is better to know if an update has changed the product.
A tagging system would be a dream, but being less bold in the request, this ability to hide REs would be very useful, and seems to me easy to implement.

Now, let me give a commercial argument of how this system is good for Props and Devs: There are several REs that I want, but haven't bought yet. As store is growing I'm starting to "loose" them in middle of more and more REs I don't care about. Soon the work will be too much to find them (alphabetic ordering isn't useful as I don't remember the names, only when I see them). Yes, I can create a list, and I've done so, but it's messy, and I have to keep track of where it is, and I'm guess users less obsessive than I could never be bothered to track things with a list...

So taking this last consideration in account, at the very least create a favorites system. Thinking well, I suppose this is what's really needed and would work the best. Besides SHOP HOME, and BROWSE, we would also get FAVORITES in the top. And each RE page needed a FAVORITE button (that can be reset). Simple.

Having the tags and ordering working on the favorites page would be useful too, specially in the long term.

In the shop home, HIGHEST RATED isn't really needed: what we need is a sort by rating option.

NEW RELEASES should track the time user last accessed, in order to show everything new since then.

User customizable tags would be the cherry on top of the cake
(I suppose that's the one that implies a lot more to implement).

I totally agree. We need organization for REs, as well as genre specific subforums in the Music forum. Like Electronic, Rap, Christian, World, Rock, etc. That might be somewhat vague but at least it would be clear enough for peeps to know what they're about to listen to...
"Life is a movie, you're a star."
"Don't waste your talents."
"Give music life!"

I support the improvements to the RE organization... it's getting too unusable! i also think PH should enforce minimum standards for quality in the RE shop... it's sort of sad that the rules are so lax for a company that has always been about taking its time to get a high quality stable product

+1 for that. Also for the refills section of the site - it's really poor, there's not even a search function!

True. But it's like that for so long, I can't really believe it will ever change...

Sort by price would be useful too for those on a budget.
