to limit the number of song posted per account
The purpose is mainly to decrease the number of unanswered songs.
Limit not by number, but ratio. I am thinking of 1:3, but maybe 1:10 would be more friendly to WSZ user.
For ex., if A gave 1 answer correctly, A can post a max of 10 songs.
acc B answered 3 songs correctly, so B can post a max of 30 songs.
Where do this suggestion comes from?
Picture this, you have 3 new members, each with 1 song posted just to try this site, none have comment or answer to their post, because after their post, 1 other member posted 10 songs at once.
So the new members leave for good, because they deemed this site useless. While that 1 other member, got 3 answers out of his 10 posted songs, possibly dissapointed too.
I throw in 1:10 ratio, but feel free to change it to 1:20 or even 1:50, whichever you deem best for the site. Thank you kindly for your consideration. Best regards
I don't think limiting uploaders until they answer things is a good idea, as a lot of posters only come to get their songs identified, and don't look at other samples.
Better would be to limit the number of samples an account can post per day, or similar, so we don't get the huge floods of one person posting 50 samples at once, which sometimes happens. Something like 10 per day should be enough, and reasonable users would be able to understand that by spreading out large numbers of requests between several days, they have more of a chance of their samples being listened to, instead of all ignored as as spammy flood.
Happy to read any suggestions on how to limit spam posting
Limit the number of posts that can happen in a limited amount of time is certainly something nice to do.
This is such a horrible Idea. People will just make new accounts and not keep track of the passwords for they're multiple accounts and never mark anything solved. Which makes WZS even less appealing to use for everyone.
I have solved more than a 150 requests and I have only opened about a dozen requests of my own. So this is not about me not wanting to contribute. I honestly think someone is trying to kill WZS. It's getting worse and worse with every single new "improvement". After all these years I am starting to hate this site so much.
Will do. Merci, Raphael =)
Thank you for your comment.
We currently have a feature that helps you put your request to the top of the list for a few hours for a small fee, and are working on experimenting something close to what you described.
