    Re: Unofficial 70K Bands IOS/Android Application

    The 70K Bands App is the unofficial app for the 70,000 Tons Of Metals cruise. Every week I post stats to show what bands cruisers are liking, and what countries everyone is from!

    Check it out, here are the number so far.

    Notes for the week:

    So things are looking really good. We have almost all the bands now, the app is showing all the descriptions of the announced bands, and everything has returned to a mostly positive vibe. This is especially true now that booking emails have finalyl gone out. People even stopped freaking out about that once Andy explained what was going on and asked us to be patient. See Andy...you make an announcement, even one that only acknowledges an issue and says your working on it, and it helps the sitation :)

    App usage appears to be much closer to 2020 usage then 2023 usage. Usage in 2023 was WAY down, but so was attendance to the event. So far this year our app usage is close to what is was in 2020. Does this mean the cruise will be as well sold as 2020?? Maybe, it's also possible that a greater percentage of cruisers are using the app. We will find out when on board and post cruise when Andy release stats.

    App data percentages have not moved substantially from last week, but the raw number are up across the board. I expect them to shoot up even more as people learn about the app in the pre-parties, or load the app after ignoring it during the build up.

    I will probably post one more update on Monday before we board. It depends on how much I enjoyed the pre-party the night before and how much downtime I get before boarding the ship. Unless I am busy entering schedule data, I should be able to give a final stats update!

    All stats are based on users who have launched the app in the last 30 days.

    Platform Stats
    Android - 729 Users, representing 53.12%
    iOS - 644 Users, representing 46.90%
    Total Users so far 1,373

    If you have more questions about the app and how to use it, check out these links. There is a LOT of functionality in this app and unless you have read the docs or watched the video I am 100% sure you will learn some things you didn't know by doing so.

    Here is written documentation

    Similarly, Might is used more for "depends on the running order", Must is used for build the schedule around

    I had only 2 wonts but one cancelled. But regardless, I'm already overloaded on sets if I do full sets. The culling will begin SOON.

    My must see at the moment, I'll be disappointed with myself if I mess any of them. Hopefully the meet and greets don't hurt too much on timing of shows.

    Might see, if i can fit them in around sleeping to accommodate seeing the Must see. I'll likely end up seeing a good chunk of them though.

    The running order is now available in the 70K Bands App!

    Let me know if you see anything that looks like mis-entered, but I think everything looks good from my perspective (2:45am)

    Meet and Greets and Clinics do not appear to be available from UMC at this time. Assuming that data is made available in a timely manner, I will do my best to get it into the app!

    See you guys on board!

    Ok Lich King has been added to the app, and I have made the "assumption" that they are taking over all the same time slots that Legion of the Damned had.

    Hopefully Andy and I are on the same page on this obvious solution, but if Andy decides to do something different...not sure what to do about that.

    The 70K Bands team would like thank everyone who came up to us, made us feel welcome, offered app suggestions, or asked for help at all of the pre-party events and the cruise.

    The sense of community on 70,000 Tons is a large part of the unique experience and we are very happy to be able to contribute to that in such a helpful and positive way.

    We will see everyone next year.

    Hey guys,

    I am starting to collect that stats of how many people attended each show. Right now it looks like 237 people have provided “Attendance Data” for 10+ shows. This is what I have decided the cut off is for having your data count for overall stats. If you havn’t marked 10 or more events as attended I am going to assume you did not use the feature.

    If you would like to mark your events as attended, that would help make my stats better but also benefit you in the following ways.

    * You can remind yourself at any time what you did not this cruise
    * You can share a report generated by the app of what you did on the cruise with others
    * You can help improve my stats, through the stats are just for fun. Andy has never asked for them.

    To retroactivily mark your events as attended there are a few ways to ways to do it.

    1) Just click on the details page of every band and click on the events you saw. If you see an eye ball icon next to the event..you did things correctly

    2) Slightly more complicated, but MUCH quicker.
    Go to Settings (The gear icon)
    Uncheck the box for “Hide Expired Events”
    Click back to see the full running order again
    Swipe left on any event and click the eye ball icon

    Once you put the app in the background it will send me your anonymous data.

    To share with your friends once you have entered you data, just click the share icon (below the gear icon) and chose “Share Show Choices”

    Here is what the report will look like
    ———-
    These are the events I attended on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal Cruise

    I am posting cruise stats tomorrow.

    If you have not provided attendance data, and would like to, go into the app and mark the events you attended with the "Eye Ball" icon. You can do this by clicking on a band, then clicking on the event you attended at the top of the details page. There are 3 states and you can toggle through them by just clicking on the event. You can swap right/left to change to the next band without going back to the main screen.

    Right now only 15% of users have provided attendance data. It's all just for fun, so no big deal, but it will help remind you of what you did on the cruise!

    Stats are release tomorrow! See you guys on board next year!

    UPDATE!!

    To see the events again post cruise, go to preference and uncheck “Hide Expired Events”

    The 70K Bands App is the unofficial app for the 70,000 Tons Of Metals cruise. Every week I post stats to show what bands cruisers are liking, and what countries everyone is from!

    Check it out, here are the numbers.

    Notes post cruise:

    So I don't know about you guys, but I had a blast on this years cruise. Andy, as usual, found new and exciting ways to make us all bitch like crazy on the lead up to the cruise, and then delivered his always near flawless on board experience. Exactly what people who go every year have come to expect!

    So to close things out we have some VERY compelling stats.

    The 70K Bands app was used by 1,938 users or 65% of the cruise. So almost 2/3 of the cruise uses the app! Some of the remaining 1/3 are very old school and would never use any app, but I know some of these are people who have just not heard about it. Help spread the word for next year, especially for new cruisers.

    Of the 1,938 only 338 of you or 17% utilized the 'Will Attend' feature. This is up from only 12% last year..so things are getting better. Obviously there will be a subset of people who are not interested in that feature, but I suspect the more common reason is that people don't know about the feature. Not sure how to get the word out more. Check out the written documentation and/or the video walkthrough linked below if you do not know the feature I am talking about :) I tried to make the feature obtrusively obvious this year with a dialog box popping every time you clicked on an event.

    One interesting thing to me is that despite The Halo Effect having universal love in the must/might/wont rankings, they were pretty far down on the attended rankings. I suspect that most people who ranked them as Must did see them, but only attended 1 show not both. The same can not be said of Epica and Batushka though as both of their shows made the top 20. As a whole the must, might, wont was NOT the direct predictor of attendance one might have thought. Conflicts, the schedule, time of day, etc all have huge effects I am sure.

    So for the "Attended" stats, here is how these stats are being calculated. So there were 338 users who populated their scheduled and marked 10 or more events as "Attended" (The eyeball icon) in some way. These users are the sample size that all states are based on. I take the number of people who said they attended, get a percentage from the 338 total, and extrapolate the full attendance number from the number of people on board (3,003). The percentages are rounded out in the display, but the total attendance used 2 decimale places for the calculation.

    So the numbers are the numbers, and despite the small sample size these are really the ONLY evidence based crowd estimations that exist anywhere. So as "bad" as my data may or may not be...this is far and away the best data available anywhere. Even Andy is not able to have any evidenced based numbers on a per show basis. So flawed or not, here is what we have :)

    All stats are based on users who have launched the app in the last 30 days.

    So with the 2024 cruise still fresh in our hearts I am happy to announce the first release of the 2025 edition of the app.

    More changes will come over the next year, but here is a first release!

    What's new!

    Fixed the Android bug that cause some users to have issues on the ship. (sorry about that)

    Added a new feature to show in the details screen what years a band has previously been on the ship! Thanks to Al Iam for his help with this feature! Currently this is only for 2024 data and will be present going forward.

    Made minor changes, including font color, to the info section of the details screen

    Fixed an iOS bug where swiping between the details screens would show visual issues on the top of the screen on some iPhones

    More changes are coming so stay tuned. See you all in 2025!

    App suggestion if it hasn't been brought up already. I ran into some people on board who still thought some of the early cancellations would be on the ship. If a band is added on the 70k app and we get the push notifications for it, can we also get push notifications if a band is removed? Not everyone follows the forum or Facebook page, so they didn't know. With a push notification it would be a lot easier than scrolling through the band list and hopefully catching that bands you knew were there are not listed anymore. Just a thought. Thanks so much for this app!

    That is a good suggestions. Those announcements would have to go out manually, and I considered doing that...but I did not. Partially out of laziness and partially because I want the app to be associated with good things :) The announcement piece with notifications is all automated....removal is not.

    Hopefully there will be less craziness next year, as announced bands pulling out the way this year panned out in not the norm...at least at the level it happened. I will try and make more of an effort to send out cancellation notifications. I know for at least one band Andy did not even make an announcement (this was during the drought). They self announced they were not going to be on the cruise, but Andy didn't acknowledge it for a long time, and even then I am not sure if an "official" Andy communication was ever made...just the logo was removed the Artists page a few months later.

    Sorry guys...testing a needed change on the backend and everything was supposed to go to a test alert account....but something happened and an alert went out to everyone.


    Please ignore

    ---- update ----
    For those geeky enough to care...I was wondering why an Aborted announcement went out, when I would expected ALL the bands or none of the bands.

    Turns out...if you look at the source code of the currently public artists page

    https://70000tons.com/artists/

    You will see the following line of code commented out, but on the live page. This is the ONLY band from last year to be left on the artists page like this.

    Code: Select all

    <div id="" class="ib-block" style="height: 90px; margin: 0 6px 30px !important;"><a href="https://goremageddon.be/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img style="" title="Aborted" src="/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/08_3edv9ij4rtyui.png" alt="" onmouseover="this.src='/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/08_3edv9ij4rtyui_HOVER.png';" onmouseout="this.src='/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/08_3edv9ij4rtyui.png';"/></a></div>
    My code saw this, and assumed this was the first and only announced band..which is obviously not the case.

    Anyway, I added Aborted to an Excluded list so this will not happen again..even if this is left in and announcements start.

    For those wondering what yesterdays "backend" work was about, here are the changes that were made to the backend process that feed bands being added.

    * Made google mandated changes to how authentication is handled for sending push notification alerts

    * Added the ability to automatically add what years a band has played on the cruise before by analyzing previous years data

    * Add the ability to automatically add country and genre information for bands that have been on the cruise before. Again made possible by analyzing previous years data. Previously this was ALWAYS added manually, going forward manual addition will only be needed for new bands.

    Thanks to Al Iam for his help with the previous years data automatic analysis.

    So Andy caught me off guard like everyone else, but things are back and all pointing towards 2025. Announcements should start being automatic triggered by the entry being added to the https://70000tons.com/artists/ page

    Andy, can you ask whoever is adding the entries to your web site to NOT use ALL CAPS for the band name?

    Right now the code looks like this

    title="EMPEROR"

    it should look like this

    title="Emperor"

    If not I guess I will need to correct for these type of things in code, but would like to avoid that.

    Thanks!

    Hey everybody things are off to surprisingly quick start and that is a GREAT thing.

    For those of you who know me and 70K Bands, great!! For those of you who are new to 70,000 Ton cruises (or just missed the memo) 70K Bands is the Unofficial iOS and Android app for the 70,000 Tons cruise.

    Why should I use some unofficial app I hear you asking...well
    1) Because its free, open source, community maintained and supported and a great resource. And
    2) Because there is NO official app...which it why this tool exists.

    What features are offered

    The app actually has 2 different feature sets, and you get both in the same tool

    Pre-Cruise

    You get timely push notifications to your device as bands are announced
    You get a list of currently announced bands
    You can click through to get details of those bands including
    - Links to the Official Site, Metal Archives, Wikipedia, and Youtube for the band
    - Ability to flag as Must See, Might See, or Wont See
    - And after a bit (we need to write them), entertaining and informative descriptions of the bands

    All of this is a native, multi language app

    After the running order of all bands are announced (2-3 days before sail normally), the interface changes to the running order, and the feature set changes
    - You get a list of all 200+ event on board, with events dropping of the active list as they end
    - You get an alert 10 min before events you indicated you were interested in attending start (this can be customized)
    - Optimized for being on a cruise ship with no, or poor internet access
    - Ability to custom the schedule in multiple ways (by band preference, by show preference, etc)

    There is a lot of functionality here built up over the years

    Here is written documentation
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pkq ... zH_qJnDtgE

    Here is a video walkthrough
    https://youtu.be/e4QW_vPA6nw

    Every Tuesday I will make a post on the official 70K Bands facebook page (and other locations) with the stats of who has marked what bands as favorites and other fun stats about what is going.

    All stats gathered by the app are 100% anonymous and is only used for community purposes. Since I don't know your email or other personal data..nothing is really tracking you and nothing is EVER sold.

    Check out the app today!

    The 70K Bands App is the unofficial app for the 70,000 Tons Of Metals cruise. Every week I post stats to show what bands cruisers are liking, and what countries everyone is from! Check it out, here are the number so far.

    Notes for the week:

    So now that we have the first 10 bands, we are starting up with the weekly 70K Bands stats again. Every Tuesday (at least for weeks where things have changed) I will release a report of the top 10 bands and countries, and other interesting data. This data comes from everyone who uses the 70K Bands iOS and Android app. All collected data is 100% anonymous, and is only used for benefit of the 70K community.

    Being so early in the process, all the bands are included in the top 10, but Kalmah is currently the one on top. Things can change though, if you haven't marked your Must/Might/Wont preferences, go into the app and do that now. This will help you out..if this is your first cruise there will 120+ shows (200+ events) and you can really only attend between 30-50, so prioritizing is a MUST...so start ranking your bands now!

    Some note about the stats.

    Bands are ranked by percentage of Must votes among the people that have specified a preference for a given band. This is done because for bands that were announced early, they have a HUGE leg up on bands that were announced later in the process. With this method it doesn't matter if 400 people gave your band a ranking or 100 did...it's the percentage of people that assigned you a MUST rating that counts. I include the raw votes in addition to percentage for reference as well.

    iOS always get s a boost for some reason early in the process, but as we get closer to cruising, Android seems to always move into the top spot. Not 100% sure the reason for this, but that has been the trend the last few years.

    All stats are from people who have launched the app in the last 30 days. If you stop using the app, then your preferences will eventually be removed from these stats.

    Platform
    iOS - 351 Users, representing 54.42%
    Android - 294 Users, representing 45.58%
    Total Users so far 645

    Top 10 Must/Might/Wont choices
    Band Name Must Count Must Percentage
    Kalmah 256 72.66%
    Emperor 309 68.28%
    Stratovarius 266 58.27%

    The Kovenant 209 46.41%

    Attention Newbies!!!!

    One aspect of the 70,000 Tons cruise is there is no offical app for the cruise. This is a shame because with 60+ bands and over 200 events onboard how the hell are you going to keep track of it all!

    Fear not, the 70K community has come to your rescue. For the 9th cruise in a row you can download the 70K Bands app for your iOS or Android phone to tablet. Every year over the last 9 cruises new features, improvement, and refinements have been made to the app, so this is now a well polished tool with lots of features and ease of use conviences added. The app is free, open source, and community maintained.

    What features are offered

    Notes for the week:

    Things are in full swing now, with bookings well under way and the announcement process moving along at Andy's typically inconsistent pace. Will we get more announcements today...maybe, but who knows :) When will the drought start and how long will it last...we will see (newbies be prepared...the cruise will NOT be cancelled...don't be the rookie who throws that out there in the comments on week 5 of the drought!)

    Kalmah and Emperor continue to hold the #1 and #2 spot, but Septicflesh jumps into the #3 spot and is within spitting distance of taking the #2 spot from Emperor

    Canada and Germany continue their yearly battle for the #2/#3 spot with Canada currently holding a very slim lead, and with Switzerland in the #4 slot for now.

    iOS continues to hold a lead over Android, but that lead has substantially narrowed compared to last week.

    Over all user count is on the rise, as would be expected. We came very close to 2,000 users at the end of last year, but for this early in the process we are about where I would expect to be, maybe slightly higher.

    All stats are from people who have launched the app in the last 30 days. If you stop using the app, then your stats contribution will eventually be removed.

    The 70K Bands App is the unofficial app for the 70,000 Tons Of Metals cruise. Every week I post stats to show what bands cruisers are liking, and what countries everyone is from! Check it out, here are the number so far.

    Notes for the week:

    Kalmah and Emperor continue to hold the #1 and #2 spot, but there are a few new additions to the top 10, that being Decapitated, Hammerfall and Sonata Arctica

    Canada and Germany continue their yearly battle for the #2/#3 spot with them now being tied at 112 users, and with Switzerland being steady in the #4 slot.

    Over all user count continues to slowly rise with user count now up past 900 users!

    All stats are from people who have launched the app in the last 30 days. If you stop using the app, then your stats contribution will eventually be removed.

    Notes for the week:

    Kalmah stays on top with Unleash The Archers rising to #2 and Emperor dropping to the #3 spot. The lower 7 remain the same

    Canada and Germany continue their yearly battle for the #2/#3 spot. Germany has just a 1 user lead in the race at this point! Switzerland is staying steady in the #4 slot.

    The user count was up to 1,040 users at some point last week, but now has dropped to below a 1,000. Who knew that if Andy stopped announcing new bands, people would stop launching the app...shocking :) What...? no one wants to look at the same stuff over and over again! Do keep in mind that we are adding in the descriptions and that work is picking up steam (Go Aaron)

    iOS and Android are still close to 50/50, but iOS still clinging onto the #1 spot

    Hey, I periodically launch the app just to keep my session active. Keeps the data fresher that way :D

    Between announcements I usually wind up opening the app when the topic of 70K comes up at a show and it's a whole lot easier than trying to remember who's playing or to fight with wifi/data signal at a venue

    Plus, they get to judge me about how I have the bulk of this year's line up marked as Won't :lol:
