Tonight on N3XUS RADIO

2008-07-27 13:32:57 by WizardSleeve

Tonight on N3XUS we will be celebrating the birth of even more new features around the site.

Firstly on our "Now Playing" page: http://www.nexusradio.co.uk/requests/ we have introduced a little feature at the top that gives some more information about the artist, if we have it some album art will display, and also if we have been supplied links to where people can buy the album this will display as well.

Also links to omd's websites etc will be displayed... pretty fantastic stuff even if i do say so myself.

ON TOP of all that there is something even more SPECIAL! What can be more special than that I hear you ask? Well... I have introduced a simple RATING system so that people can rate the tune that is playing, or that they request (http://www.nexusradio.co.uk/requests/
playlist.php?limit=100
) out of 5!

So in addition to our top 100 requests chart we also have a top 20 by User ratings chart (that I will make bigger once we have had more ratings): http://www.nexusradio.co.uk/requests/t op20rating.php

We have also just started SCROBBLING To LASTFM so you can see if you have been played and how many times each song you have played has played.. however this has only just been set up and i had a problem where it scrobbled the same track multiple times for some reason.. but once all the DJ's have this simple little feature set up the artists played should even out a bit. Since setting this up we have already played 746 different artists!!!!

To see the last FM page: http://www.last.fm/user/N3XUSRADIO - ADD us as a friend!!!!

So we technically have 3 charts!

TOP 100 Requests: http://www.nexusradio.co.uk/requests/l ivechart.php (only available with active/auto DJ currently)
TOP 20 By User Ratings: http://www.nexusradio.co.uk/requests/t op20rating.php (only available with active/auto DJ currently)
LAST FM CHART: http://www.last.fm/user/N3XUSRADIO

All exciting stuff eh?

Well anyway i hope you will come experiment these features with me tonight from 8PM GMT (3PM EST) till about midnight.

Hey Wiz,

I see this competition has changed quite a bit. I'm reconsidering if I should be a part of it or not. Will there be a rating on most original songs? I might consider that since I don't think anyone can compete with people who can sing in their songs. (I can't sing so pretty much I'm not going to get anywhere in this competition). Looks like your putting lots of effort in making this a real neat SOTY comp. Keep it up.

Bye for now

Bye for now

Hey sorry only just saw your response....

the votes are going to be on what people like best, regardless of genre... the competition is still very open to the direction its going to take at them moment
