Spotify Won't let me save any more songs

I'm new to Spotify, so I apologize in advance if I'm missing something obvious.  I downloaded LOADS of music (I'm unable to tell how many artists or songs in total) and I've reached a point where any time I click "Save" for an album, it flicks to "saved" for a split second and goes back to "save."  Then, when I go into my library, the album i tried to save is no longer there. 

 

My question is, what am I doing wrong?  Is there some sort of cap?  Can I make a massive playlist of lets say 10,00 songs, delete them off my library, and then save different music and add that to the playlist?  I really just want to use spotify like Ittunes -- so I canhave one massive library of everything.  I have about 22,000 songs I'd like to have on my spotify account, if possible. 

 

Thanks for your help :)

Mike

Spotify Your Music and Playlists both have a maximum limit of 10,000 tracks I'm afraid.

There are 2 work arounds:
- The starred playlist is unlimited, so it can store more than 10,000 tracks.
- Playlist folders are unlimited, so a playlist folder can contain an infinite number of playlists that contain 10,000 tracks each.

This has to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard of and I am running into the same issue. WHY oh why did spotify decide to add this restriction for paying premium members?!?!?!?

 

I am about 2 short clicks away from cancelling my membership with spotify and going over to RDIO unless they fix this asap!

We're working on expanding this, @JeffDC1979.

Using playlist folders with several very long playlists also enables you to play the whole folder in shuffle mode which gives a perfect library radio, at least in the desktop software with its improved shuffle mode, may show the usual repetition of the old shuffle mode on mobile apps though. And please enable folders in the web player, too. ;-)

First of all, I never said I wanted to "play the whole folder in shuffle mode" . I am not looking for a "perfect library radio". If I wanted that I would just ditch spotify and go to pandora. Please answer intelligently or don't answer at all.

 

Using playlists as a work-around your horrible limitations is a hack and an unacceptable response to my problem. JUST FIX THE PROBLEM!

 

Seriously, it has to be like 1 line of code

 

change

 

maxSavedSongs = 10000;

 

to

 

maxSavedSongs = MAX_SONGS_IN_SPOTIFY_CATALOGUE;

 

It is enfurating that I have to deal with this right now. I would like to know how long until this is implemented because if it takes longer than 1 month I am switching services.

From experience of Spotify changing things, I would be shocked if this even happens in 2015 to be honest.
