Feature Requests for Winamp versions after 5.8

Hi Winamp team, I was wondering if you can-
1.) Add auto-tagging based on the tags present in the files so what's missing will be filled in or specific fields can be filled
2.) Add support for importing eq files for Winamp for Android from the desktop version.
3.) Add the option for choosing specific decibels for the eq sliders (double or right click/ tap and hold for prompt)(for Android & Desktop).
4.) Use last.fm tags for playlist generation, showing the tags associated with the songs you have and showing the number of songs you have associated with each tag next to the tags in parenthesis eg. Alternative (247) -and doing the same for songs by similar artists eg.
deadmau5 (363) -without using a last.fm account.

The last one is because Microsoft bought zikera for the rights to use the name of their app "Groove" then made it so the app no longer functioned, kind of makes you wonder what they would've done with Winamp

A moodagent alternative would be nice too. I made the requests for versions after 5.8 since the focus now is to replace AOL code, AOL licensed services and services no longer available.

Making a super dope user image for Windows 10 in Photoshop or Illustrator? Make it 448x448 to minimize artifacting from compression.

just for clarity, the old autotag did take existing tags into account, but would over-write them. WMP has a feature called "only add missing info" which sounds closer to what u mean, and is something i would like as well.

i would also like to have a better tool to get the proper year in a tag. specifically, i consider year a song field, not an album one. so let the user pick that in prefs, and then do auto tags for years only, so that songs can all be tagged via year released. while in many cases, the song/album would share the same year, in many other cases they don't. this would greatly enhance listening by year if u want to relive 1979 for example.

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

I totally agree that it would be useful to have Winamp be able to search for and provide the year a song was first released, in addition to the year of the album release that the song happens to be on. Some songs are released as singles and/or on multiple albums.
