Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Enchancement Idea ccn ratings

that's a good idea - I'll give it a try.

I rather NOT rate the songs, since if it has no rating I know that I need to rate it.

I rate songs like so:
   1. I hate it, I never want to hear it again
   2. Bearable
   3. Average, I won't skip to the next if it comes on
   4. Good, sometimes I rock out to it
   5. Awesome, I wish it was in Guitar Hero

So, as you can see from my chart, if I rate them all 3 -- I won't know if I have rated it already or not.

I guess I can use 2 for what you use your 3, thus replacing my 2 with NULL. :)

However, all of this can be avoided if we get this option :)

In closing I would like to say that I'm an OLD SCHOOL winamp fan, then I moved to xmms/beep, and recently to Rhythmbox. I tried Winamp the other day, and I hated it -- I couldn't find what I wanted.

Rhythmbox, you got moxy (in your name, it's there, look)!

Thanks for all the dev's work!

I've been using the rating system in rhythmbox to help weed out songs I don't like. I rate them 1 star as I hear songs I don't like, then later I sort by rating, highlight all the 1-star songs, and move to trash. So far it works well.

I had a thought that it would be nice to have an option that would allow me to Not play/skip songs with 1 star ratings. That way, once I mark it with one star, I won't hear it again.

I do something similar: I have a "good stuff" search playlist setup three or more stars. I usually play a random selection from the "Good Stuff".

The catch is that when searching it seems that "unrated/zero stars" is treated as a zero rather than a null (unrated). This means whenever I add new musics to my collection it initially his unrated/zero stars.

I have to manually give it a rating of say 3 stars to appear on my "good stuff list". To make this as simple as possible, I have another "unrated" automatic playlist set to match zero stars. I then select all of the results, and edit their rating to be three.

I tried to search the mailing list to see if something like this had already been submitted, but the search is offline.

I would like a rating-weigted random mode (where more stars means more likely to be played; but taking into account the total tracks for each rating), but that's getting complicated...
