It's this widget that ranks you based on some kind of algorithm. Based on what I've read, a realistic but high number of plays per day and evenness of play count distribution (particularly in your Top 50) factor pretty heavily into having a higher level, in addition to what I'm assuming are usual things like how many plays and artists you've scrobbled. Based on their system, I'm a Level 40, and the highest level that anyone's achieved is 96, with 25 being the average.

Of course, the whole thing is based on arbitrary play counts and doesn't factor in things like genre variability. And that's not even getting into the inherent issues of trying to objectively determine your magnitude of "music addiction".


It's a fun little thing so long as you don't take it too seriously or anything.

Ah-ha. Thanks for the explanation!

Well, I directly attribute yourself with the Art Tatum scrobbles. Great recommendation.

Finally settled on a new Media Player and got it to work with Last.fm, but this is really only from this weekend, and maybe Friday.

Corb Lund - 49
Aesop Rock - 15
A Certain Ratio - 14
Testament - 13
Elliot Brood - 13
OSI - 8
Earth - 1
Colour Haze - 1

Mostly killing time listening to old favorites while I wait for the next glut of new albums I've been looking forward to all year.
