I would like to suggest the following amendments to the scheduling
rules detailed below in ALL CAPS bellow:
We now release shows based on when the hosts last had a show aired.
This brings new hosts and returning hosts to the top of the queue to
encourage their efforts, and it also spreads out shows submitted in
batches and gives a wider variety of hosts. Once a host is determined,
the first show uploaded by that host is released. If you wish your
shows to be released in a particular order then make sure you make that
obvious in the title and by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can swap the order of the shows but it involves additional effort
and is frowned upon :).
WHERE POSSIBLE WE WILL NOT RELEASE SHOWS FROM THE SAME HOST IN ANY ONE
We will continue to promote new podcasts and other creative commons
material but due to a lack of slots, we are only releasing material
created exclusively for HPR. If there is a piece of creative commons
content that you would like to promote, then feel free to record a
regular show where you introduce the content and explain why it is
important and providing links to where we can get more information.
THESE SHOWS CAN BE RELEASED EITHER UNDER YOUR OWN NAME OR UNDER
THE GENERIC HOST CALLED "VARIOUS CREATIVE COMMONS WORKS" (HOSTID 158)
The amendment "WHERE POSSIBLE WE WILL NOT RELEASE SHOWS FROM THE SAME
HOST IN ANY ONE WEEK." had been included prior to the changes in
January, but I would like to put it back.
The amendment "THESE SHOWS WILL CAN BE RELEASED EITHER UNDER YOUR
OWN NAME OR UNDER THE GENERIC HOST CALLED "VARIOUS CREATIVE COMMONS
WORKS" was discussed in the mail list under the title of "Various
Creative Commons Works" but the discussions got derailed.
Please keep discussion to these two points only.
As always Silence, or no comment is assumed to be approval.
Also the addition of the following text to the Scheduling Rules:
Please be aware that we cannot predict when your show will be out, but
sooner of later it will be released. Sometimes a new host will jump to
the top of the queue, while other hosts seem to be waiting a long time.
This is because all the shows at HPR are scheduled according to the
Scheduling Guidelines, which apply to everyone without exception.
On the List
- Show Flow Rate/Average wait times
- Android App
- Crediting multiple hosts
- Securing the website
- Upload Form

I didn't want to encroach anyone's style :-) thanks for the nice comments

Yes, please review my PHP code!
In addition to checking for security screwups that I may have overlooked, I'd be interested in any general commentary or suggestions. I'm pretty much self-taught on PHP so if I've developed any bad habits I'll never know until someone else looks at it...
(I should also clarify that my "If *I* were Emperor of $whatever" schtick is just shorthand for "if there were no practical impediments and I could just declare something done and it would be done that way with no further effort on my part", not a reflection of an assumption that there IS an Emperor of $whatever...)
