So, my proposal to the song submission randomizer:
It all comes down to this: do we (or, preferably, Kyle) prefer a totally random song from anyone or the idea of the viewer having the gratification of being chosen?
If it's the first: equal chance for every submission, never delete.
If it's the second: equal chance, submissions expire after one week (to accommodate YouTube viewers)
Pro/Con of the first method:
Pro: Maybe there's an interesting song waiting a long time to be choosen
Con: maybe an one time viewer sent a submission, a month later he is choosen and never sees it. Long time viewers who never got a song choosen loses a chance.
Pro/Con of the second method:
Pro: Fresh songs of interested viewers gets choosen. Maybe higher quality, more in tune with Kyle/chat's preferences.
Con: We may be losing cool songs submissions to give preference to our need for gratification in being choosen.
So, what about a
Higher chance to submissions a week old maximum. Submissions expire after some time (a month, maybe).
...I thought way too much about this.
