    A slight improvement related to this is that you can now 'tag' a photo after you've uploaded it to mark it as a 'gig poster'. This doesn't add the functionality that you were hoping for yet, but it's a step in the right direction :)

    There is now a graph on the Overview page and Years pages showing how many concerts you've gone to per year :)

    The best way to handle this currently would be to create a separate venue for the original 9:30 Club. I don't know enough about the history to know what the best name would be but something like "9:30 Club (Atlantic Building)" would work. That way you can delineate all of the concerts at the 'original' location and all the people who don't know the history can add their concerts to the regular '9:30 Club' listing.

    Can somebody post a link to their Last.fm concert listing? I haven't used Last.fm for this, so I'm not familiar with what's possible there.

    It's not an ideal solution but in the meantime a pretty good workaround is to create a separate concert for each day of the festival. As in a concert for "Sasquatch Festival Day 1" another for "Sasquatch Festival Day 2", etc. That'll solve all the issues mentioned for the time being.

    Thanks for the suggestion! One issue is that Setlist.fm treats every set/artist as it's own 'concert'. In other words, if 3 bands played at a concert, Setlist.fm treats all 3 of those sets as 3 different concerts. Concert Archives treats all 3 of those sets as part of a single concert. It'd be pretty tricky to import that data from Setlist.fm without creating a ton of single-band concerts.

    Is the goal just to record & remember who you went with? If so, you could use the new 'Private Comments' feature to save this information for the time being.

    There are a couple of different requests here, so I'll address them separately:

    - Reordering bands: This has now been added! You can re-order to your heart's content :)

    - Editing bands: I can see how this can be annoying but it's by design. The way the system is set up, if you had the ability to edit a typo in the band that would actually edit that band name across the entire database. Sometimes that's a good thing, but it can lead to big problems. Like if somebody accidentally changed the band 'U2' to 'Sheryl Crow'. Then every U2 concert would be changed to Sheryl Crow! I'll look at different ways to handle this in the future, but that's the reason it's like that :)

    I’m curious if there are other users who would be interested in a forum to discuss concerts, etc.

    I’ve been receiving a lot of email lately from people with questions about specific concerts that I’m just not able to respond to. A forum might be a good solution where the community can help each other.

    Thanks for the suggestion! In the meantime, you can put the setlist in the 'Notes' field for that concert.

    The best way to deal with this currently would be to create a separate venues for the main room and the secondary room. For example the new venue would be "The Trocadero Theatre - The Balcony" vs "The Trocadero Theatre". Make sense?

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Other users have also brought up the issue where setlists might be wrong for multi-day concerts. The best workaround I've seen somebody do so far is to create a separate concert for each day of the festival. For example "Bonaroo Day 1". That way they can add the bands that they saw that day and the setlists will be correct. Same for "Bonaroo Day 2", etc.

    @Kelly, thanks for the additional comments/suggestions. FYI, I merged "Sidewinder" into "The Sidewinder".
