Ever since we moved to the new site design and webhost, the request system has been kind of annoyingly dodgy. Requests don't always play in the order they're received, and if your request isn't played in the right order, it gets pushed back with every new request, such that it might not play for hours.

Well, okay, time to open up that puppy and take a look... I knew just where to look, in good old DoRequest(). Only... it looked perfectly fine. So, off to look at a half dozen other places it could be.

Only I've looked everywhere and can't find it. BTW, you have no idea how complicated the website is. There are two databases, three computers, two web servers, the streaming software...

It was then that I had this awful feeling. I'd run across this problem once before, when I originally designed the request system many years ago. This bug reared its ugly head, and I had to wrack my brain for a solution.

Finally I thought of something. Something... a bit... unusual. Something... evil. I have this vague recollection of putting a comment by that code that read, "I'm going to Hell for this." But I put it into place and -- other than sensing millions of voices crying out and then suddenly silenced -- everything was right with the world again.

But I can't for the life of me remember what that was; it must have gotten lost during the transition from the old web host. I have many guesses, but each one hasn't panned out.

I haven't found it yet, but I'm compiling a list of all the places it could be... really, Yggdrasil is like the Winchester Mystery House of software...

I somewhat noticed that problem...

There is also the fact that i cant request the new songs i requested before here in the forums...

Is this problem the same one as you have mentioned or is it different?

That shouldn't be related, tho I don't know what problem you had. New music is typically scheduled to play as soon as possible, so perhaps you got a "already played recently" error.
