In order to improve the stream quality we also want to improve the quality of what SAM is playing when people are not requesting. We have made some improvements but may be it needs some finetuning of certain albums/tracks that should not be played. It is possible to move these albums/tracks to a region where SAM will not pick from them. (They can move out again if people start requesting from it)

Please note that taste is a very personal thing! There are tracks you like that others do not and the otherway around. The argumentation needs to be very convincing to be removed from the SAM requests. Keep in mind this does not mean we remove the album or track from our library.

If you have an album/track you want to be removed from the SAM request please specify it in this thread. Only requests with a good argumentation will be considered.

Could you move the "Christmas" albums out of SAM's reach until Nov/Dec? We had Santa Claus is Coming to Town yesterday from Elf. I realize trying to find every "Christmas" track would be a lot of work, but it may be possible at an album level. Or just a search for certain keywords like Christmas and Santa in track names would be a start.

Note: There are tracks on those albums that are non-Christmassy that we may lose, but generally I don't think that's a big problem. Also, I don't have a problem with people picking Christmassy tracks deliberately at any time (I do a few sometimes) but I don't think SAM should.

You just found out the reason why I made this thread Smile

So I will look into
- Elf
- All albums with Christmas in the title (Of course there are expections like Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence)

The following albums have been removed from the "weighted" SAM playlist:

"Elf"
"Arthur Christmas"
"Charlie Brown Christmas, A"
"Christmas Carol, A"
"Christmas Horror Story, A"
"Christmas Of Solan & Ludvig, The"
"Enchantment, A Magical Christmas"
"Eureka: A Very Eureka Christmas"
"Four Christmases"
"How The Grinch Stole Christmas"
"How The Grinch Stole Christmas!"
"How The Nerd Stole Christmas"
"Merry Friggin Christmas, A"
"Muppet Christmas Carol, The"
"Nightmare Before Christmas, The"
"Surviving Christmas"
"Polar Express, The"

It is sometimes possible that you will see it in the queue as a "least played artist". But for most composers that is not a problem.
