There are some artists or songs that one would not like to see in their stream of recommended songs/albums. I think it would be nice to be able to 'turn-down-the-volume' for these items so that they do not show up unless they have to.
For example, I don't really appreciate any of J.Bieber's music, so it would be nice not to see any of his music in any of the playlists I'm exposed to.
I hope I make sense.
Apart from that, when are you coming to Norway :-)
We don't have any plans to implement a feature to allow users to ban certain artists from appearing in their Rdio selection, but I can understand your request—I'll share it with the rest of the team, and let you know if we decide to implement any similar features.
We’re glad to hear you’re interested in seeing Rdio in Norway — we’re hard at work on licensing our music catalog for international availability, and will notify you as soon as Rdio is ready in your region.
Don't hesitate to contact us in the future if you have any other questions.
Thanks for your reply.
'Ban' is a strong word. What I meant is just give the said artist's song a lower weight than others if it appears in a recommended playlist.
Glad you are working hard on international availability.
