Dear Ahmed,

We put your suggestion to the todo list!

Please look at the API documentation, some REST calls already exist where you can specify your genre.

getArtistsByGenre http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/api.jsp# ... stsByGenre
getRandomAlbumsID3 http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/api.jsp# ... mAlbumsID3
getAlbumListID3 http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/api.jsp#getAlbumListID3
getRandomSongs http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/api.jsp#getRandomSongs

Best regards,
The Madsonic Team

Thanks for the reply, its awesome that its added to the list as its import to create a proper charts feature
If i may add, a time scope parameter (top played by week, month, all time) if possible
(Though i think it should be calculated once a day or a week)

I like this, although its possible to get this information outside of madsonic, if you have configured the last.fm scrobbling in madsonic. Then you can just use the last.fm service (but I know, this is not what you want).
