Why has Latino been removed from Genres and Moods of the web player?

I use the web player while working and now I have to find the Latino genre page from Google and that is not very user friendly.

Hey folks! 

 

Hope everything's working fine now. It's been a while since the last update on the post, so we'll be closing it for now. If you need anything else, just give us a shout.

 

Take care!

Probably because it's racist to have a genre based on skin color.

Hey @johannaraisa! Thanks for your report.

 

That's not cool! Could you send over a screenshot of what you're seeing in Genres and Moods? Also, what country is your Spotify account registered to? I'd love to get to the bottom of this.

 

Thanks, take care! :)

Hi, @Huib! Thanks for the response.
 
My Spotify is registered to Finland. I took a screenshot for you but noticed that now the page doesn't load propelly. Seems that all the genres won't load and the spinner just keeps spinning.

Best regards! :)

Hey @johannaraisa!

Hmm, that's odd. Could you try to clear the cache and cookies of your web browser? That might help here! :)

 

Keep me posted!

Hi, @Huib!

 

Nope, didn't help. I even tried another browser but both Firefox and Chrome are giving the same results. Last week the whole page was loading but missed the Latin genre.

 

I use it mainly with FireFox and the current version is 55.0.2 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. There can be a problem with the Ubuntu version of the Flash plugin but that loading problem seems to be only on Genre and Moods page.

Happy to help!

Hey @johannaraisa! Thanks for bringing this to light!

 

I'd love to get to the bottom of this. Could you try to login with a different Spotify account? That might help here. Also, if that didn't help, could you try opening the Web Player with a different network connection? Let me know how you get on! :)

Thanks for your patience on this one!

Hi, @Huib!

 

Today the list seems to load propelly and Latin is back. Wondering if you have some limit generating the items on the page since now I see that Decades has disappeared for example?

 

Thank you for helping, cheers!

Hey @johannaraisa! Thanks for letting us know that. 

 

Just to make sure, does this continue happening if you use the desktop app instead of the web player?

 

Keep us in the loop.
