I suggest you ...

implement filters

For searching for genre, comments (yes/no), answers (yes/no), sort by age of request, number of answers...

        Today, the main page of WSZ has two drop down boxes for filtering. In the left one, "Last samples", you can select "Listened", "Not Listened", and "Random".

        "Not Listened" looks broken, because it only displays the 10 most recent songs that haven't been listened to by the logged-in user.

        "Listened" works the way I would expect. Results are broken into links of pages, like the default view.

        Once one of these three options is selected, you have to click on the WatZatSong title in the upper left to reset to the default selection, "Last Samples". This works, but seems counter-intuitive.

        The filter on the right, "All Genres", has only nine (9) genres to choose, plus "All + Quiz".

        I understand that the Quiz category is for folks that use the site to organize name-that-song style quizzes. However, in the past two weeks, the site has seen an incredibly large number of bulk submitters. (OP's confirmed over 40 songs for me alone in the past week). These quizzers don't seem to consistently specify "Quiz" as the genre. Some do, some don't. This suggests that the default view should omit samples with no genre, and that WSZ may need to add a filter like "All + Unspecified". Alternatively, WSZ could require a genre be specified during sample submission as suggested previously here:

        This was how it was when i used the site several years ago,it was a really good site back then. All search options were present.

        Filtering samples by genres are a very good idea because each user is familiar with only a segment of the music world. So they can give help about what they really know...
