    Does PandoraFM Hold Songs In Queue When Scrobbling is Down?

    PandoraFM doesn't seem to be scrobbling today... I have not been a user of PandoraFM very long, so please forgive me if there is an obvious answer to this question...

    Does PandoraFM hold the songs you listen to in queue when the real time scrobbling is not working, and then scrobbles them in bulk when it comes back up?

    Thanks!

    Supposedly it does, but in those situations, the page is supposed to display a message about Last.fm not accepting submissions. It hasn't done that since this problem started early on Monday, so I'm wondering the same thing, Mike. I really hope so.

    Scrobbling is still not working for me. PandoraFM shows the info is submitted, but nothing shows up in LastFM. Very Sad.

    I am hopeful that all of the songs are being logged and that a bulk scrobble will happen after the issue (whatever it is) is fixed....

    I talked to Gabe, the creator of PandoraFM. He has no idea what's happening but is looking into it. He apologized.

    I was wondering if Gabe was aware of the goings on. Thank you josta for getting in touch with him. Cheers!

    Thanks josta59!

    Did Gabe give any indication as to once he finds out root cause, whether or not our scrobbles are lost, or are saved and will be bulk loaded?

    He didn't say, but I suspect he didn't know the answer to that at the time, since he had no idea what the problem was. I haven't heard from him since then.

    Track submission still broken for me, but I was able to love a track. Seems only partially broken.

    I wrote Gabe again this morning. No reply yet. This is driving me crazy.

    I can love tracks, as well. Only scrobbling seems to be broken.

  • I'm glad I'm not the only one. I hope it starts working again soon. i love pandora.fm

    Unfortunately, there hasn't been much to love about it for a whole week now. I might as well just use Pandora if it's not scrobbling.

    It's scrobbling again, although it doesn't look like it kept track of what we listened to while it was down.

    Cool. I got a message from Gabe this morning. He was surprised he was able to figure it out. He says everything will be submitted. Hasn't happened for me yet, but I have a little hope now.

    PandoraFM does keep track of what was listened to during a time of non-submission.. however the catch lies within Last.FM's rules.

    If you listen to something in PandoraFM and it doesn't submit, and then listen to something else, anywhere and it *does* submit... you lose everything in PandoraFM because the timestamps will no longer be in order.

    So the next time you log in to PandoraFM and listen to a song successfully it will attempt to go through your backlog of tracks. Last.FM will either start accepting them or reject them for not being in order.

    So either you'll see them show up in your profile, or you'll see that Last.FM message on your profile saying "Some tracks were not accepted something something blah blah."

    Just as a quick look, there are 3,925 tracks still queued up for submission. This is 989 users worth of data. The user with the most tracks queued has 79, followed by 53. Each will be attempted next time you log in to PandoraFM.

    Did anyone's batch of songs submit from last week? None of mine did. I listened to a lot of music last week, and none of it was submitted. Bummer.

    It's probably going to be rare for any of the songs cached for as long as they were to show up in your profile... since you would have had to have listened to nothing else (last.fm radio, itunes, ipod, etc) between then and resubmission time because of the timestamp restriction. I tried to find a Last.FM help article, but couldn't :)

    josta:
    I looked at the logs (it doesn't go back very far, but I see this much) that a track you listened to on the 10th (when pandorafm was down) was resubmitted and Last.FM accepted it. My guess, though, is it was thrown away after that. If it makes you chuckle at all this track finally submitted after 326 attempts. There's an attempt after every song you listen to... so that gives you an idea of how many songs.

    I hope this isn't some kind of privacy breach or anything, but maybe this might help. Here's the top 10 remaining users that haven't submitted tracks yet:

    | sgarrett85 | 79 |
    | haze2000y | 53 |
    | scowpert | 52 |
    | itazurajackson | 41 |
    | blackpanher989 | 37 |
    | mfmbcpman | 33 |
    | stuffedbeargirl | 32 |
    | swedishmegaman | 31 |
    | captpositive | 31 |
    | awkward | 28 |


    3773 total tracks left.
