FAQ: How can I thumb-up (or down) a song on Chavah?

Q. Some songs on Chavah I like, and others I don't. Can I tell Chavah to play more of the ones I like, and less of the ones I don't?

A. Yes, Chavah lets you thumb-up songs you like and thumb-down songs you dislike. To thumb-up a song, click the arrow above song's community rank number:

Likewise, to thumb-down a song, click the down arrow.

Follow-up question:

Q. What happens when I thumb-up a song? When I thumb-down?

A. Thumbing-up a song will tell Chavah you like that song. She'll play that song, and songs similar to it, more often for you. Thumbing up a song will increase the song's community rank (that number between the arrows). The higher the community rank, the more that song is played for everyone.

Thumbing-down a song tells Chavah not to play that song for you. She'll put it on the backburner; she won't play it for you, even if someone does a song request for it. Thumbing-down a song will decrease its community rank, and songs with low ranks will play less often for everyone.

Follow-up question:

Q. Can I see how many up and down votes a song has received?

Yes, you can view up- and down-votes by clicking the community rank:

Clicking the community rank will show the total number of up- and down-votes:

It’s my personal favorite.Aviad made big splashes when he, as a conservative Jew and rapper known as 50 Shekel, came to belief in Yeshua as Israel’s messiah. His public conversion made him a target for anti-missionaries and Jews who considered his belief in Yeshua to be a betrayal of Judaism.At the time of this writing, it's not clear how Aviad died. One friend says he passed a…

FAQ: How do I request a song?

Q. I don’t see the song request feature in Chavah. Where is it?A. It’s the ‘loudspeaker’ button at the top. Click that button, and then type the name of a song, artist, or album:Click the song you’re looking for, then click the ‘Request’ button:You’re done!Chavah will play the song instantly for you. Other people listening to the station will hear the song request as soon as their current song finishes.(p.s. Don’t like a song that someone requested? Thumb it down. Chavah will play something else for you, and the next time that song is requested, she’ll skip sending it to you.)(p.p.s. Looking for a song, but don’t quite remember the name? This is a great way to find it. Just type anything you do remember about the song, whether album, artist, or name (even if incomplete) and Chavah will do her best to find it for you.)
