NEW FORUM IDEA/REQUEST

I'd like to suggest that all the setlists are databased as:

band name alphabetically
then under each band name a setlist starting from earliest to latest..

e.g.

ACDC
15th March 1997
14th April 1997
29th November 1998

Alice Cooper
9th July 1988
12th August 1992

Carcass
5th October 1994

etc.

Just so it's easier to find the period and band you're looking for..

Thanks for the suggestion.

In a couple of days, we're going to have tags, so that we can associate threads with bands. That will be a huge start in making better sense of set lists. For those who don't know what tags are..... imagine clicking on a link that says IRON MAIDEN and pulling up all of the Iron Maiden set lists.

The main problem with using band subforums as a defacto database schema is that our basic data object is a thread, which is often associated with multiple bands, festivals, etc. Further complicating the issue that the format of the first post is rarely consistent. There are bandaids and hacks that might helped but I'd spend the time developing a proper database.

Thanks

I realise there is a search bar. But often lots of threads that are useless to me come up when I do search.
It would also make it very clear which setlists are NOT on the site.
