Hey Adam, When it comes to Reggae channel (which was my regular channel in recent years) it's as if it is a completely new channel. If it does happen to play a thumbed up song, it will be one only and seems to be more of a random occurrence than as a fit of the "new" station. Because it was so off I switched to Rap which was really a 90s rap channel, but now is playing music from recent years mostly with an occasional classic. So not many thumbed up songs but does happen here and there. I then felt the need to check another old channel (Lil wayne) to see if it was just across the board affecting all channels and although it seemed to be a bit off to me at the time (not as bad as the other though), when trying to grab the screenshots today, I noticed most of the songs playing were thumbed up (as one would expect) so perhaps this channel is not as much of a concern as I originally thought. Please see attached screen shots for the other 2 channels. Please let me know if you have any more questions, thank you very much the help!

Well I believe it is across stations but I at this point I only listen to a few well curated ones, so those are the ones I noticed it off. Reggae was the first one, Rap the second and also the Lil Wayne channel. What is interesting is that it plays none of the thumbed up songs that make up the channel, only new songs of other artists that I have never heard before. I have not tried to use a thumbs down because I did not see the reason to recurate my channel. Sure everyone once in a while Pandora sneaks in a new song and that's great, but when 100% of the songs are new and of a different vibe than what the channel has thumbed up, thumbing down does not seem like a fix to the problem. Something else behind the scenes changed and that's why I, and the seemingly many other people above, are having problems with our years old stations. I did not use any Modes or do anything different. It was literally one morning a different channel. Thank you so much for trying to help.

I've experienced a very similar thing as others have described above. One day out of the blue, about 3 weeks ago, suddenly out of nowhere, stations that have been curated over 10 years were not only playing songs that I've never heard before and did not match the station's vibe but were actually not playing any of the "thumbed up" songs at all. As if something changed in the Pandora formula, and overnight the station became essentially a stranger's station, not a personalized one. I couldn't explain what caused it, when I decided to google it and stumbled upon this thread, where many people around the same time (end of April, early May) experienced the exact same thing! What's going on Pandora? I don't want to have to change, but I feel like I've lost years of curating effort. Has any fix been determined?? Please advise.
