Request time to enter QUEUE

Request time to enter QUEUE

Not sure if this was asked or not. Search did not return anything.

Would it be too much to add a time to enter queue field in queuelist for requests?

If not possible, can it be done using the request plugin? A setting that would add songs to the play queue after say 60 minutes of entering the request queue.

This can be done with a event.  Repeat by Day and Hour.
i have set 4 events so every 15 min a request is set in the queue.
one the hour.
15 min past the hour.
30 min past the hour.
45 min past the hour.

in the Action list  select plugin action

I know the feature you mean its to do with DMCA rules. Not allowing a request for over 60 minutes.

I think your best way around delaying a request is to make a rotation of around 12/13 songs and Put 1 or 2 requests at the end of the Rotation. 12/13 songs is roughly an hour that should delay requests.
