I used to use the tick column for selecting/deselecting tacks when editing tags and suchlike.
In the version I just upgraded to, I noticed everything was ticked.
When deselecting a track, there was a warning about unticked tracks being excluded from playing and syncing.
I've been using the 'ban' flag for that sort of thing (in the 'love' column).

What's the case usage now of the tick column?
Does it differ in any way from what the 'ban' flag does?

Thanks.

The idea of ticks is they're meant to be used more for occasional removal than complete removal. Look for the wishlist thread for more details.

Yes, the usage was changed greatly due to user requests.  This is the thread where it was discussed: http://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=12641.0

Although the "exclude from playback" feature was later removed again, so if you're on the latest update that message should probably be fixed.
