Low Listeners

After the maintenance of SHOUTcast the other day ago, my listeners have been low. Went from an average of 100-200 concurrent in a day to now just 1 or 2 after maintenance.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Looking at the directory tons of stations have low number of listeners now.

Maybe it has to do with this issue?

I can confirm that analytics is no longer accurate. I have 4 listeners but shows as 33 on SHOUTCast back panel . Regarding the numbers of listeners, they changed something and its never been the same.

pretty sure the low listener count is due to the fact that only a few stations are able to be "listened to" from the shoutcast directory. A short trip here : http://directory.shoutcast.com/ will show that there are only a few stations (that I've found) that actually work... most stations are failing on getting the correct stream url and info from the YP. Any mobile apps that use the directory would also be failing miserably. This all started with the "massive maintenance" done on the YP a few days ago

I've all but given up trying to get stations to play from the YP.

That sucks, hoping they can provide a fix for this week. YP is back up and down again.
