i think you definitely forgot to use it. there are ways to encourage broadcasters to update, but some of it involves work from our side first (quite a lot actually) and then conveying the importance of updating as it's starting to affect the experience for listeners (and without them, what's the point in being a broadcaster...).

since most of the things i've seen requested by SHOUTcast listeners is already possible to do, but it needs the majority of stations being on a v2.x DNAS instead of a v1.x DNAS (which there will be people using no matter what like those still using v1.8.x)

e.g. finding stations near to you is already possible but there's not enough location data in the system from stations to make it worthwhile to enable and make accessible to 3rd party developers via the API.
