Oh sweet I've been looking for a way to boost my play counts on here for some unfathomable reason, what a useful feature this is for that specific application

What if we do a mobile style and a computer style in this site :-)

I figured out the culprit on this one. The site adds a play each time the file is requested. Certain devices/browsers load media in chunks; there's a large class method in the code that handles this. Every chunk load on an entry is causing a play to register. So the solution is to move the play adder to the player itself. What should count as a play tho? Right when it starts or a few seconds in?

a few seconds in - maybe 10% of track length

that would be bad for those rare 10+ minute entries. even if they didn't play the whole thing, it still gives a play advantage to short entries. maybe 15 secs/10% whatever is shorter?

playback of 50% of the song lenght. No more, no less.

Edit: maybe even full file/streaming retrival. Maybe that's taxing on the server, though.

10 seconds or 33.333333%, whichever comes 1st sounds like something worth considering

edit: lmao i shoulda read the tread. pretty much what gp said

idk if this would be too hard, but maybe also make it so if the full entry length hasn't passed since you last "viewed" it, it doesn't count as a second view.

i'm glad it's whichever first rather than whichever last

not sure everyone is willing to listen to more than 3 minutes of some of my longer entries

@flaminglog: me too, i would be gutted if people had to listen to fifteen seconds of the fourteen second entries i have on here

uh... not sure how many threads related to this issue exist...

finally got in the code and i think i fixed it
so points/boons/fav_countenings are only happening on the initial load of the chunked media files

let me know if i borked anything!
