What do you mean by this?

If you have requests built into the rotation manager like this


and not be forced to load the entire clock at once in cue, you could allow for requests to load during that clock versus the top or bottom.

This would also allow for more lengthy detailed clocks and you could rely less on scheduling events.

Especially since we can't load requests as an event.

One of these two things needs to be addressed IMO.

Well than this should be posted in the future request forum. Only Marius can do anything about it.

I tend to agree somewhat. even tho other users might prefer to have more tracks in the playlist for obvious reasons. I guess an option would be cool to have.

Still why can't you just use the function "Auto add to playlist?" and just disable the requests altogether when you don't want them to run? At least till a better solution comes along.

That being said a new version is coming and Marius has indeed a to do list. Unfortunately we don't know what the new features will be and what's on this list.
Remember that this is free software and while in time I can see more and more flaws, this is still an amazing application. I think people demand more and more but to be honest it's already pretty damn good. For the most part there's workarounds and many ways a thing can be done. Even if sometimes you have to make compromises.

Off topic: by using the rule "least times played" you can "force" newer songs in the database to be played more.

That is not correct. You can load requests using event action. Just look at the plugin actions:

Hey Valdis, thanks for the tip, however after testing this I found that RDJ no longer plays my request sweepers with the requested song. I even went as far as adding the load track option in the request event in front of the requested track.
How do I get the request sweeps to load with this plugin event?

Apparently, the requests plugin does not add sweepers in event action. I can't help you with that.

You could add a jingle in front of the request.

Yeah, you could. But what if there are no requests? The jingle would still be played without a request.

Exactly, plus I loose the specialty overlay sweeper as well.  :(

The lack of control over requests is disappointing.  :'(

Any word on this being addressed in short order?

Months even :D ( 4 editions of RadioDJ running 24/7 on only one PC as silence detection and non-stop playoud at a local radiostation. Longest time running was allmost 234 days without restart )

I know this is an OLD topic but... http://djgarybaldy.co.uk/radiodj-running-for-365-days-continuously/

That sure as hell beat the 234 days uptime reported by Freerunmedia! I know its not a competition but just how stable and reliable is RadioDJ?? VERY!
