I have made it so SAM only picks the least played artists and songs since everyone want to be able to pick popular songs. Hopefully this will light up some of your favorites. It may take a few days time though to notice. The only drawback I see is that SAM will be requesting stuff that has just been added to the playlist. We'll see how this plays out.

Thank you JERIC. Much appreciated.

I don't mind it when SAM picks a popular song as long as it has already been green for a day or two. It was bugging me when SAM picked my faves while they were still red (or green for only a few seconds) and then resetting the 10 day wait. This was pretty much my only complaint around here.

I am affraid that this is still the case. Just saw one red in the queue requested by SAM. SAM can pick up all tracks that are played at least 4 days ago (the setting of 'No Repeats' for the new albums)

So I think if JERIC can change it in the setting to the normal 'No Repeats' (10 days)

In that case new added albums will be available as well for 6 days (after played once) even sam picks least played tracks.

Hmm...

In my opinion, SAM should take a back seat to members. Songs should remain green for a couple of days before SAM picks them, so that members have a chance to pick them first.

I don't care if the song is incredibly obscure or insanely popular ... as long as members have a crack at it before SAM picks it.

It does not look like the change is working. SAM continues to pick very popular songs and while they are still red. It just picked several very popular songs while they still had just one day to go before becoming green for members to pick.

I concur. SAM continues to snatch up reds and/or tracks that have just gone green.

JERIC - you mentioned in chat a couple days ago that SAM was working fine. I don't see how you can say that now.

I am just wondering if SAM has a "preference" for albums or artists which have only single tracks. The examples that esmagnus listed above are all artists represented by only those single tracks. I have also noticed that artists or albums with only single tracks that are in my favorites list are almost always red - with at least part of that because of SAM.

Even if SAM goes through and picks artists or albums randomly - it could still lead to those single songs getting picked pretty often, just because those are the only songs that SAM can pick from them. Maybe that could explain at least some of it.

Sorry everyone. The problem is we cannot program SAM the same way we can with php. I have lowered the request waits for humans so SAM will not pick as much. The other stations do not have this issue because the queue is dominated by members so I will try to do the same here.

Since we cannot get SAM to not pick tracks between 4-10 days and have them available for you to request, I have removed the feature of allowing newly added albums to be requested in a shorter amount of time.

Before:

No Repeats
4/10 Days

After:

No Repeats
10/10 Days

I will probably keep it this way until we get enough tracks and members so this is not a issue anymore like the other stations.

Sorry, I'm not understanding what this means. Maybe it's too early in the morning for me Smile
