The main Feelin' 520 page will display 18 songs at a time; only 1 per artist. The voting tool allows visitors to vote for their favorite of the week. Voting is limited to one time per week per IP address. The most voted song at the end of the week will be played on Hot 98.3 that Sunday night between 7:30pm and 8:00pm. Votes will be tallied and the voting tool reset every Friday.
Every few weeks, the Feelin' 520 page will be refreshed with new artists/songs. Songs that receive the least amount of votes each week will be replaced faster than the songs receiving the greater amount of votes. Once a song has reached the top spot a total of 4 times, it will be retired (removed from the program). Once an artist's song is dropped from the program, the artist is free to submit a new song for consideration.
