I actually came close to meeting the requirements once, but then I went on a huge Stabbing Westward binge and totally fucked that up.

    I also came across the Diverse? Prove it! group. An elitist group where your diversity rests solely on whether your top artist's play make up less than 3% of your overall plays. …
