Ok, maybe this is going to result me being told I'm using it wrong but I think it's about time the queue system was fixed as currently it's rather, well, stupid. I'm going to go through a little use case here to explain why.
Being the man of fine taste that I am, I decide to throw on Bear vs Shark's "Terrorhawk" album, I do this by navigating to the album page and double clicking the first track:
Great stuff, after a few tracks I'm well into post-hardcore mood so I decide to have a browse through one of my big playlists and find a classic. Of course I want to finish the current album first so logic dictates this is where queuing comes in useful, so I right click and queue:
This is where things take a turn for the stupid though, because one was just double clicked and the second explictly queued I end up with this:
Annoying, but surely I can just drag the tracks back to where they should be in the playlist? Well sort of, if you do they act like "queued" items but the originals stay where they are meaning I have my first album, the second album, then all of those tracks from the first album again!
The solution? When it comes to queuing, regardless of how they end up there, all items should be treated the same. If I start an album with a double click the items it creates in the queue should be the same as when I right click and queue. I should be able to manage them the same, and they should not be lower priority than items I right click and explicitly queue.
