is there some way to check if the requesting user is still connected before it plays the request, or perhaps remove all requests from a user once they disconnect?

i find that routine undesirable, because i usually request a song when i come into the lab and then just stream dg (either from my account or the next account user on the shared mac)
i cant keep the webpage open all time to keep my request valid

Practice is when things work, and no one knows why.
Here we combine theory and practice.

I think we're all looking too deep into this. I have a solution in place. Nobody in this thread needs to worry about being banned.

you can post in the song requests/complaints forum if there is a track that bugs you.

Though I tend to get vetoed allot :\

i find the " request invalid on disconnect" a bad idea...
because i happen to be disconnected a lot due to connection failures
(i live in the greens and can be happy tht theres something like dsl1000)
this would mean for me (and probably other people) to have a lot of invalid requests,
and therefore it would somewhat disable the request function for them.

phew, im philosophic today...
