What is Listige?

Listige is the name of the service, that's polling the Reddits various music subreddits ("Source website" for details) in search for tracks to update the various playlists with.

It's meant to be a word play between list (playlist) and prestige.

Where the prestige is the fact that (at least in the larger subs) several people has cast their votes on the posts converted into tracks.

How are tracks added?

Various subreddit pages (such as r/Music) are parsed for post titles containing a dash (-) in the post title (roughly once an hour), like the example:
KIDS SEE GHOSTS - Freeee (Ghost Town Pt. 2) [Psychedelic Hip-Hop]
If a new such post title have been added and it's current score is at least 1 or more.
Then it's being matched towards expected criteria described in the chapter "What is the expected format of the post title?" below.

What is the expected format of the post title?

As described in previous chapter "How are tracks added?" a dash must be present in the post title.

The dash is used to separate the artist name and the track name. Where the artist name is expected on the left side and it's track name on the right side of the dash:

Artist name - Track name

What not to have in the post title?

Any other information besides artist and track name are expected to be in capsuled in ( ) or [ ].
So that type of information can removed when searching for the track.

If not there's a chance that the track can't be identified and added to the playlist!

There's however an exception to this rule, which is when ( ) and [ ] contains either of the following words:
mix, version, live, acoustic, acapella, cover, instrumental, edit, rework

These words will be used when searching for the track name as long as the are located on the right side of the dash (track name side).

How does the rotation of the playlist tracks work?

When an playlist reaches 50 tracks, then any new track after that will replace the oldest added track in the playlist.

How often a playlist is updated depends all upon how often new posts, matching the criteria (see "What is the expected format of the post title?"), is added to the subreddits page.

See "Source website" column for direct link to these various pages.

How is Listige funded?

Listige.com and it's playlists are a non profit service. All expenses making this possible are payed by it's creator.

I have an idea, comment, or question not covered here! How do I provide that?
