I've been told by a good dj that no such rating standard is in use by the broadcasting stations,
so basicly we can make our own.
i went and did a little math, on the subject and since every one seems to be wanting a one play a day rating, and it seems to be for a few days to a week mostly. then i got the caculator out and did some math with some rounding up here is what i sent to diddeleedoo.
on a 7 day 7 plays basis for a 5 star rating. i figured i need a good number to work with so it went this way.
7 x 7 = 49 divided by 5 = 9.8 rounded up to even number of 10
then figure the 7 plays to get a star on the scale i divided then rounded up the numbers to get this.
5 stars for 10 plays
4.5 stars for 9 plays
4 stars for 8 plays
3.5 stars for 7 plays
3 stars for 6 plays
2.5 stars for 5 plays
2 stars for 4 plays
1.5 stars for 3 plays
1 star for 2 plays
0.5 stars for 1 play
0.0 stars for 0 plays.
yes i did that by a caculater and was shocked when i wrote out the numbers i could have dont that good with out the caclulator?
but what about using that since it is working on the one play a day one rating theroy. most you could get at a week of playing for once a day would be the 3.5 stars.
which gives you 3 manual selections of the song to make it go to a 5 star rating so you can have 3 requests for that song in a week and that would put it in the 5 stars.
if a song is really liked for 5 stars you will end up playing it more then 10 times a week.
