  1. Improve Lotto/Queue System in Listening Party

    The queuing system in the Listening Party is rather frustrating for users. Some users have been casting their lot in the lottery for several hours without any plays, while others get played multiple times within an hour, these were thoughts that came up recently in chat:

    Create a system where partiers queue up, rather than cast lots and then have an algorithm shuffle the entries. The more entries someone submits, the more spread out they ought to be. Remove random plays altogether.

    If the lotto system remains in place, entries should be allowed 20-30 before the currently playing song ends.…

      Hello all,

      We have started working on some lottery improvements in party. Our first pass at leveling the playing field will be to weight those people who have not won over those who have won recently.

      We can’t give away the precise algorithm we’ll be using, but it goes something like:

      If three people (a, b, and c) bid to get into the lottery, and nobody has won yet, then each person gets one vote, and has a 33% chance of winning.

      a = 1 votes (33% chance)
      b = 1 votes (33% chance)
      c = 1 votes (33% chance)

      Let’s say A wins.

      The next time the lottery opens up, the same three people enter again, person a will have 0 votes (since they just got heard) and the other two people will have 2 votes each, giving each of them a 50% chance to win.

      a = 0…
