    I mean, when a band gets announced they have a low vote count, so yeah their Must is going to be high. That's why the raw numbers are good to look at. The total number of must votes is way more relevant than the total percentage of must votes.
    I have to disagree to some extent. Assuming the 132 are somewhat representative of the total, the percentage shouldn't change that much...but time will tell. I would not expect these guys to go from 71% Must down to %40 Must for example. Seeing them drop from 71% to 65% would seem possible though, but that would still keep them well within the top 10. Based on total numbers they would be at the bottom, but they were just announced last night...so that hardly seems like the way to go either.

    I think percentages, while acknowledging the raw number underlying them, seem like the best way to present and sort.

    What this says is the percentage of total of must votes cast for that particular band is %71. It's kind of hard to compare that to other bands when they have like 400-500 more votes. I'm an American, so I know you can't make people vote that's for sure. But think of it like this: You have a facebook event for a show just announced, 7 of 10 (7%) people replied say they're coming. That's pretty good but a small sample size, and things can change. Versus a show that was announced a month prior and 76 of 100 (76%) people say they're going.
    It would be ideal to have 100% of the users be required to mark each band, especially if they've marked one already. But you can't force that, not easily anyhow.

    It's also like "4 of 5 dentists agree that chewing Trident gets you laid" or whatever. Yeah, sure 80% is pretty good, but how many people did they ask?

    Another thing, my wife uses the app but for some reason only marks the bands she must see as Must. she doesn't mark the others as might or won't, because she doesn't know.

    Percentages are fine and I'm not looking to change anyone's mind. And as you said, yeah percentages might be the best way to sort, I'm just saying there's a lot of data that can be interpreted in different ways. That's why listing the numbers is cool.

    All this is moot when I'm at work however, seeing as how the attachments are blocked on my computer :D

    Weekly Stats Post!

    Ok, so the stats have changed slightly. When we were in the announcement drought, I made the calls to stop counting users who had not logged into the app in the last 90 days. Given that we are now getting daily+ announcements every weekday this now seems excessive, so I have shortened the inactivity timeout to 30 days. Due to this you will small dips in the total numbers.

    Don't forget to checkout the video walkthrough of the app. There are features you likely havn't even used yet!

    Here are this week stats. (as of 9:00am PST)

    If anyone wants to help test the app, I am going to be conducting a 'simulated' week of the cruise in some testing files. This is to spot any issues in the current production code well before we set sail.

    If you want to help by participating in this test, do the following.

    For Android go to Preferences inside the app and change 'Pointer URL' down at the bottom to 'Testing'

    For iOS go to the system settings, search for 70K Bands and change the Pointer URL to Testing (be sure iOS does not add a space at the end of the word)

    You should be looking at last years bands and schedule, but set to happen this week. (Pre parties say January instead of November, but will go off in November. This was done for space concerns on Android)

    Testing should focus on onboard alerts. Be sure everything works as expected in offline mode and if possible, poor network perforce (like shitty ships wifi), and just ensure as much as you can that the week of the cruise works without issue.

    Let me know if you find any issues via Facebook Messenger.

    You will still get alerts for new bands, though obviously wont see them in the app in this mode.

    To revert back to production, change the Pointer URL back to 'Prod'

    Thanks and see you guys on board

    Here are the weekly stats for 70K Bands

    With a full on announcement drought ongoing, things have not changed much and usage numbers are down slightly. Imagine, nothing new to look at and people stop launching the app, who would have thought :) I have a hunch we are going to get some activity this coming week though...you can do it Andy!

    Ok, we are 23 days until sail and 24 bands left to announce.

    Sorry Andy, I can no longer distract the masses with cool stats. You are just going to HAVE to restart announcements.

    I skipped last weeks stats, because let's face it...not much has changed. That being said, I don't want to skip 2 weeks in a row, so here we go!

    If you are going to be on board and havn't download the iOS or Android version of the 70K Bands app, you should do so now! These stats are just a cool side effect. The main purpose of your Must, Might and Wont votes is to use them within the app to customize your notification alerts and the display so you know when events are happening on board concerning bands that you care about.

    This app is free, ad free, and is open source. Developed by the community for the community!
