Allow me to specify which artists I saw at a festival so my artist counts are more correct37 votes
This is already possible by creating a new Concert from scratch by entering the info manually rather than using the Past Concert Search Engine.
One other good tip is to create a separate Concert for each day of the festival and the system will do a better job at finding the artist setlists.
It would be cool to get notifications about the concerts my friends are adding.27 votes
This is done! You can now follow your friends on Concert Archives :)
When you are logged into the site check out the ‘Social’ area in the navigation.
Just like with other forms of social media, members should have the ability to decide whether their personal archive should be searchable/viewable by the public or other members. Some type of privacy settings and options would be a very welcome addition.25 votes
Users are now able to set their profiles as ‘Private’!
More information about how it works is available here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/private-profiles-18645238
bands you saw at the concert vs bands attended24 votes
This is complete! On the concert page you can now select the bands that you saw. The other “not-seen” bands won’t count towards your statistics.
Along with the rankings by year/band/location, be able to self rank favorite concerts.20 votes
Good news! I’ve just added the ability for you to mark your Favorite Concerts and have them displayed on your Overview page and a new Favorite Concerts page :)
There’s a bit more info here: https://concertarchives.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1820272
We’ll add some more features to the Favorites functionality in the future (particularly the ability to sort), but this is a nice start :)
Using a similar format to the export file, allow for import of concert lists. Many of us have long lists of concerts, this would be much easier and quicker than manually entering them all.19 votes
This has been added! You can now import concerts into your archive from a CSV spreadsheet. More details and a link are included in the Release Notes: https://www.concertarchives.org/release-notes
This is especially useful for festivals where there are 50 bands and you only saw 10.19 votes
After you’ve added the concert/festival you can then ‘Edit’ it and remove the bands you didn’t see.
It would be nice to have a check box to indicate the headliner, so when you view the details the headliner is always at the top of the band list instead of defaulting to alphabetical order.19 votes
You can now drag and drop the bands into the correct order :)
Import events from Songkick17 votes
Not sure how difficult or possible it would be but being able to back up the information in some kind of format would be amazing. Would love to be able to export this just in case.16 votes
I’m happy to report that I added the ability for you to export your concert archive to Excel!
You’ll now find a link in your Profile Menu and on your Settings page called “Export to Excel”. Here’s a screenshot: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31839/Screenshots/export-to-excel.png
Easy peasy :)
Shows your archive to users who have attended many of the same shows as you. Great way to make new concert buddies!
Shows you archives of people who have attended a lot of mutual shows. Great way to make friends!14 votes
There is now a ‘Recommended Users’ feature under the ‘Social’ menu to do this. The users listed on top are ones who attended the same concerts. Below that are ones that saw many of the same bands (at different concerts).
Let users input future concerts and all their information, then allow any users to search then add those concerts to their future concert wishlist. After going to the concert you can then just tick it off and it'll add it to your list.13 votes
I just added quite a few new features around ‘upcoming concerts’. You can see more details on the Release Notes here: concertarchives.org/release-notes
I also added the “Bucket List” feature a few months ago that is like a wishlist.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Merge multiple listings of the same artist due to misspelling or typos9 votes
I released a feature called ‘Aliases’ a couple of weeks ago that helps solve this. We can now set ‘Aliases’ for bands, locations, and venues behind the scenes. For example, the official spelling is “blink-182”, but a lot of people enter it as “Blink 182”, which caused there to be duplicate listings. Now the “blink-182” listing has an alias of “Blink 182” (amongst others), so any time somebody enters “Blink 182” it’ll automatically get corrected and applied to “blink-182”. This works for Locations (“Portland, OR” vs “Portland, Oregon”) and Venues as well.
You can email me a list of aliases to be entered to email@example.com or use the ‘Report Issue’ link in the site navigation.
Fix the order of the bands by the way you input them, sometimes the headliner would not appear first9 votes
As of right now the only way to change the order of bands for a specific show is to delete every one below it, save it, and then add the bands in the correct order. The perfectionist in me wants it to always be the order they played, and for some reason the orders get wonky on this site sometimes.7 votes
You can now drag and drop the bands into the correct order :)
Would be pretty cool if there was the ability to move a cover photo up or down (similar to how it works on Facebook's timeline view). Some photos get cut off/cropped and would be cool to be able to edit the viewable portion of it by sliding it up or down a little bit.7 votes
You can now crop the photo when you set it as the Cover Photo :)
Add a function to omit bands on a line-up that you missed/skipped. Often times, I'll go to a show with 4 acts on it, but end up late and miss the openers. Don't wanna list bands on my page I missed.7 votes
This is complete and live on the site :)
Would be great to get insight into performances that were scheduled for a specific date, but were cancelled. Perhaps a "Rescheduled" tag could be used to define shows that were cancelled, but a future date has been set.
This would be good for venues or promoters to see which artists or acts are more likely to cancel when trying to attract talent or promote a show.
Right now, there are no databases that provide this information in an organized fashion.6 votes
You can now set concerts as ‘Cancelled’ or ‘Rescheduled’! To do that, go to the concert’s ‘Edit’ page and then click ‘Advanced Options’.
Thanks for the suggestion :)
Ability to merge all venues with the same name. Example: there's one venue named the Troubadour in West Hollywood, but there are seven different entries for it on the site4 votes
I’ve put in a good amount of work this last week cleaning up issues around duplicate data.
I’ve also added the ability for users to report data issues so that I can fix them on the back end. Next time you log in, you’ll see a link in the top navigation for “Report Issue” where you can file issues.
P.S. Troubadour is all cleaned up.
