Hey, long-time user, first-time wisher...

I've been spending some time lately getting my genres straight and thought of a couple of things that might come in handy.

1. The ability to create hierarchies under genres within a genre category. Example: Rock > Alternative Rock > Indie Rock > Post-Punk Revival. Under the current functionality, I can only map the sub-genre "Post-Punk Revival" directly to a genre category. If I map it to "Indie Rock," that creates "Indie Rock" as a new genre category. If I map it to "Rock," then I lose the sub-genres in between.

2. The ability to map a single genre to multiple genre categories. E.g., allow users to map "Dance-Pop" to both "Dance" and "Pop."

Really enjoy the app. Thanks for your consideration.

There's a newish feature called the Tag Hierarchy Explorer. I suggest you search that (Google might be easier than forum search) and see if you can't make it do what you want.
