Skip Limit

reader

For over a month know I get the message that my skip limit has been reached . . .this is frustrating because my great relaxing music somehow always morphs into heavier and heavier music finally culminating into thrash and it won't let me bypass it so I end up having to change the station completely.

@reader The skip limit allows us to balance royalty costs with our desire to maximize access to free listening on Pandora. To clarify, a skip is counted when you skip a track, Thumbs down a song or tell us "I'm tired of this track". To provide the best listening experience, we actively test the amount of skips that listeners receive.

With that being said, I'm happy to look into the issue you are having with your station for you, but I'll need a bit more information first. Can you write me back with the following?

  • The name of the station where this occurred.
  • The name(s) of the artist(s).
  • The title(s) of the track(s).
  • Were you able to give the track(s) a Thumbs down?
  • Were you listening using a Pandora Mode like Crowd Faves, Discovery or Deep Cuts?

Let me know, and I'll take a look.

I'm experiencing the same issue. I was logged out for 12 hours and my skip limit on all my channels says it's been met. If I try giving a thumbs down it gives me the message that it will consider not playing it in the future, but my skip limit has been reached.

One way you can receive more skips is to watch a short video from one of our advertisers. After completing this activity, your skips will be automatically added to your account, and will expire within one hour of the time they were issued.

Alternatively, you may consider upgrading to Pandora Plus for unlimited skips, replays and offline listening. Or Pandora Premium, our on-demand music service, which provides the same benefits along with the ability to create your own curated playlists.

Hope this helps!

pandora plus does not give unlimited skips, I know, I just tried to use "I'm tired of this **ahem** track" and the option wasn't available, it was there earlier and I believe I've used it two or three times today.

@reader Hi I just wanted to weigh in. I noticed that @AdamPandora provided a good response that explains the limit on skips. I'm a Premium member so I never run into this issue. I've been a member of Pandora for quite a few years. At first I was a free member. I think it's great that Pandora offers free accounts that are ad-based. You do have limitations as a free member that Plus or Premium members don't have. Anyway, it's good to see your post. I hope something said in the responses help you. I also hope we'll see you around in the community. Peace!
