Are you talking about the info encoded into the song file? So when you put it into iTunes or something, the info will be auto-filled in? Because that would depend on how the artist packed the file, nothing with you or NG. That should be an easy fix, as long as you keep track of which files you downloaded.

Mike changed it to this if I'm not mistaken - it's an intentional change. Now, the ID3 tags remain as they are. To be honest I prefer it how it was before.

It looks fucking retarded. You should be able to change the metadata in the project page.

Awww shucks, I feel special.

But on topic, yeah, the change was intentional. Why? I have no f'n idea. Still a lot of work that needs to be done on the AP, here's to hoping it doesn't take 5 years.

When I upload audio, I put ID on it ahead of time. Apparently one of my "fans" was awed when one of my tracks had a "Newgrounds Audio Portal" album artwork. I guess if you just add the info before you upload, no one else will have a problem.

I don't think adding the ID3-tags yourself will work. As far as I know Newgrounds always changes the tags, no matter what you made them before.
