Give us your opinion on this song
Today we have put live a series of Improvements to the radio section on the website.
The radio page header has been re-done, to align with the design of the rest of the website.
We have now also added "Most Loved Songs" which show the Top 10 most liked songs ever. You can click "View Full List" and see a top 40 of both most loved and most hated songs.
The Top 40 has been re-worked also. The way the top 40 is ranked has been completely changed.
Rather than being based purely on how many times the song has been requested, it now takes Loves & Hates in to account, so !love and !hate songs wisely!
The algorithm we use for this is:
(RequestCount * LoveCount) - (HateCount * 2)
Since Google Chrome broke the web player the other day with more anti-autoplay stuff, I have fixed that and went on to improve it further:
The biggest change with the updated Webplayer is the new addition of the Song time / total time bar. This was a huge technical challenge, but we managed to see it through.
If you're still having problems please press ctrl + F5 - that should fix it.
We have also updated the Presenter section to show both the Presenter name and current show name.
That's it for now. In future updates we wish to add presenter profile pages along with adding more music content to the radio web page.
I've been updating the radio over the past month, and given that the meetup is coming up very soon I should post all the additions to the radio and call it an update, then start fresh after the meetup.
I should explain the excel file below
- Anything that doesn't have "Requests Only" is only available via request only. This is not included in the AutoDJ rotation.
- Anything with "Pushed Songs", "_010" is available on the AutoDJ rotation. It is named like this due to the current folder structure and it is easier for me to keep track on where everything is going.
- Most of the albums are available only by requesting them, with exceptions listed within the AutoDJ categories.
This is where you can find all updates currently to the radio. https://1drv.ms/x/s!Aj18-F70Y6uqh-hpE_oahVLWAU8teg
Along with this we have brought back our weekly streaming of A State Of Trance by Armin Van Buuren. I also plan on doing other weekly streams such as that, but that will have to wait until after the meetup.
That's basically it, hope you enjoy. Remember to !suggest in #radio in Discord or PM me songs to add.
I'm bringing forward to the community an idea I've had for quite a while now. It's basically having different nights for different genres of music. For example, on Monday evening we play an hour of chill music, Tuesday evening we play an hour of rock music, Wednesday evening we play EDM music and so on.
The biggest problem I would personally have achieving this would be that I don't listen to much music related to specific genres. This is where I am asking you to help me. I would like the community to put forward playlists to be played for these evenings.
Here are some guidelines to follow - they aren't rules but just guidelines to keep everything smooth and easy.
- Playlists should be between 1 and 2 hours - anything in excess or much less than this will be put under review
- Try play music currently in the radio database - anything else I can try to source myself but it would be a great help if you could choose something from the database
- Roughly 20 songs or more will need to be submitted as 20 songs at roughly 3 minutes a song will turn out to be 1 hour.
I am personally going to do a "Top 40" night on Thursdays - I will be posting a song list when it comes time to do so. I will personally dedicate 30 songs to my first music night, happening this Thursday the 15th of this month. Also we currently play A State Of Trance by Armin Van Buuren on Friday evening at 9:30 so that will be continuing, and as such we will not be accepting entries for that night.
I know it may seem like a lot to choose more than an hour of music, but as you seen above, 20 songs on average will turn out to an hour.
Please PM me on discord (@lé xyz) a song list or PM me here on the forum. Please do this at least a few days in advance of your show. For any show successful show you will be rewarded 1 million WZ$. Your name will also be announced as the DJ of the show.
This will be officially starting on the 19th of February - this gives people time to gather songs and submit them.
Thanks guys, I hope we can get some good radio shows running.
I was recently appointed the position of Community Relations (:RIP: Hula 2017-2018), and as I have quite a lot of free time I am going to be updating the radio. I ask the community to help make the radio great again, as I have limited knowledge of certain genres it would be a great help if you guys could point me in the right directions of what to add. I will be completely unbiased, any song anybody wants added to the radio, will be added. If nobody helps me I'll only really add still that I like into it, so it's up to you guys, it is a community radio after all!
At the start-mid of February you can expect a massive update to the radio database, talking thousands of songs. I hope to change the structure of what is played and when it's played, but that's all unconfirmed at the moment. Not everything is available when AutoDJ is playing, the majority of songs are only available via request and it will likely stay that way.
Along with that comes a update to the WarZone Bot on Discord, with all the old commands such as !love, !hate, !request coming back. This includes a new suggestions feature of the bot for users to request songs. To use this feature type !suggest *your song/link here*, it will be sent to me. You can also post below in this topic or in the music suggestions topic found here(that topic needs to be updated, post any requests you have), PM me on the forums or on discord (@lé xyz™#6969) a song list or contact me by any means you like. The discord bot will be added sometime today, I will update this thread when it's done.
A live view of what I am working on is available here: https://1drv.ms/x/s!Aj18-F70Y6uqh-hmekXTvwBHk9vOIg

- Moved the news to queue one minute after the hour, instead of 15.
- Removed all the Sabaton songs and replaced them with a best off compilation.

- Removed all Billy Idol songs and replaced them with a best off compilation.
- Removed all Metallica songs and replaced them with a best off compilation.
- Removed the whole Linkin park discography and replaced them with a best off compilation.
- Cleaned up various duplicate files (I'm sure there are many more around but whatever, it's a start :P)
- Cleaned up songs that didn't have any metadata and or corrupted metadata set (If any of these were requested and are now missing feel free to re-request them)
As of today I've reorganized the radio to work with categories rather than just picking a song at random, this way controlling whatever it plays becomes a lot easier, as we can just attune the category list to what it plays.
I've set up a pretty basic one for now, but it should get better by the time the likes / dislikes go up again (They are now reset so measuring becomes more accurate) of course I'll have to manually move songs around (lole) to fit the likes / dislikes on a particular song, but that should be no problem.
With this change I might have overdone or underdone a particular category of the radio, so if you think a category is coming up too frequent or too less then feel free to put a message in by the discord server in the #radio channel, also feel free to let me know if something you've previously suggested isn't able to be requested anymore. As all the folders had to be sorted out in the categories, and I might have missed some.

I've been hard
in the pants at work for the past two days to finally add some amazing music that I've always wanted to listen to on WZR; coincidentally this is a jubilee update, as in the 25th official update with new music, so I've went ahead and added some highly requested tracks along with the newest suggestions in addition to my some of my all-time favorite jams ever. The list of added content is below and I will feature most of the stuff in my next show I'm planning for this weekend.
October Metal Batch Dump:
3OH!3 (I've had enough of explosive diarrhea listening to this garbage, thank you)
Now for something actually productive on my part (thanks again @archilles392 you absolute twat), here's some of the newest suggestions added to the radio today:
Additionally added the full album "Barton Hollow" by The Civil Wars
All the tracks from the VGM show last night have been added into the radio database so you can request them at any time. I will be looking into adding much more music like this in the future, so if you want to suggest anything, feel free to do so here.
