that was MY mistake. i should not have said i had that, and i apologize for doing so. it was an honest mistake, (i didn't know not to), but a mistake all the same.

in any case, i get the feeling you won't have to wait long, but i have no inside info on an ETA, just my guess.

This is why files were auto added to the mldb when rated.
ah, makes sense i guess, although i think ratings in files should have been supported first, but perhaps the id3v2.3 spec didn't predate the feature in the app?

regardless, it probably needs to stay that way, for those who don't store ratings in tags, or formats that don't support them.

NO! i would be THRILLED if you would add the %rate% atom to the mp4/m4a format with a range of 0-100 (copying your vorbis scheme) since this appears to be the current popular de facto standard.

yes, thats awesome. i think DrO told me winamp will now parse all played files for a rating if no rating is present in the DB, regardless of if the song is or isn't in the DB. i think that makes the most sense.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
