    it was my understanding of the rules
    what were the chances of somebody picking the absolute correct time?
    pretty much zero

    alright closest wins ....... I didn't pick my date thinking it would be correct anyway (really hoping it didn't even come close to our next announcement) I mean if we have to go another month without an announcement OMG it would have to be such a group that everyone pisses themselves type of announcement.

    Well, my guess now is that one of you has this in the bag. The bitching threads were ordered to be cleaned up for a reason (bad advertising when marketing has already been less than preferable so to speak and people will be flocking to catch up on news here after an announcement is made).

    And Andy, you can redeem yourself by announcing bands that I like. Please see my post in the wishlist thread, you know where to find it you forum creeper, you :lol:

    I'm looking forward to collecting my beer tomorrow when they announce Kalmah. It would make sense to do it on a weekday, it will get a few impulse buys whereas announcing it at the end of the day Friday will leave people the weekend to think about it.

    I'm not surprised at all that I lost, I never expected to win, but I thought I was placing my bet a bit too late and I was way off on that. At the rate this is going, DragonLord Jones or the smartass that bet on January 19th are most likely to win. :P

    It's absolutely nothing personal, but I think it would be unfair to those who placed a bet in august. Coming up late in a contest where you could win 15 drinks wouldn't make that much sense to me! :P

    Eh, it's cool. I personally do not care about the drinks ( would never actually collect, way to much effort in my opinion! :lol: ), just thought it would be fun to place a bet. :D

    Yeah I kind of agree it's a little late to be placing bets since most everyone has lost already. The odds are too skewed for it to be fair. If you're interested in gambling, let's hit the craps table onboard! :death:

If you're interested, just guess the date and time Andy makes the next announcement. The person that's the closest wins a drink (max $10) onbroad from everyone who participates. All you can lose is one drink, but you can win a whole bunch of drinks on our beloved ship. The official announcement is the timestamp of Andy's post on the forum. If you're in, just copy and paste everyone's guesses in your reply.

    And then there were three - AmelieM, DragonLordJones, and Meshuggah.

    So if I'm right, if the next announcement comes on or after 22nd November, Meshuggah will be closest.

    If it does, there won't be many people left on the cruise. Pretty soon I think people will be starting to cancel. The customer relations for UMC is horrendous. If they think they're being funny by being silent, it stopped being funny a month ago. It's simply become rude and arrogant. Sorry UMC, but this is the truth. There's GOT TO be some communication...even to let us know that the next announcement will be "SOOOOOOOOOOOOON"

    Yeah I agree.

    As I've said elsewhere, I understand he is probably busy as hell, with needing to book bands, organise destination voting, Allison and Blake both leaving, etc.

    But it takes five seconds for UMC to make a post saying "DON'T PANIC!" in a post on facebook or here on the boards.

    Instead, they spend god knows how much time individually replying to emails and phonecalls of people saying "What the Hell, UMC?"

    They need to realise it is hurting the brand. If you look at the last post on facebook (the Carcass announcement) - all the comments for the last 2 months have been negative.

    Same with Twitter - do a search for 70000tons and the bulk of recent posts are people saying What The Hell?

    Probably the most successful business in the world with the worst business model!! Wonder how many other companies would stay in business if they adopted the same approach? Not many!! :twisted:

    If I were a paying customer, which I'm not, the thing that would piss me off the most is this:

    This issue resulted in customer dissatisfaction and forum community drama in the past.

    It wasted a fair bit of customer and management energy and made unfortunate waves on both sides of the equation. Regrettable things were said and effort was required to calm the seas.

    Andy's response was to defend his team (rightfully so in that some complaints were in appropriately directed at them) and to state that he heard the complaints and promised to make more 'non-announcements' in the future in order to reduce people's concerns.

    And this is his way of following through on that promise.

    If it WERE just a cruel joke, or somehow being done out of spite, one could make sense of it.

    But, honestly, I think it's just a matter of being confident in the final product and believing that people will attend and enjoy regardless of how things are handled from February to December.

    And the funny thing is, that's probably true :lol:

    Have fun on round 4 (5) everyone!! :headbanger:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me
    :shred:Book 'em ANDO!! :headbanger:

    I can almost guarantee an announcement after the 17 of September , because Andy is awesome and he wants me to win many free drinks while in the same breath torture the rest of you wicked souls :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    damn I didn't even think it would come this close, but 8 and a half more days till mid- November will bring the beer to my belly :cheers: :beerhorns: LOVE YA ALL - was hoping my guess was a joke but will take a win if it comes my way

    I was pondering coming back on another cruise after the first two years that I went, but this whole fiasco the UMC crew is putting everyone through is bad business. Let's not be over polite about what it really is, I mean Andy is a great guy and all but at the very least some communication as to what's going on would ease peoples minds.

    You don't run a business by attaching your customers even if they do attack your employees. You don't just stoop down to that level, but hey... they know they'll get away with it at this point. Unfortunately this particular community is far too forgiving it seems which I don't know if that will result in bad things or good. I wish you guys the best of luck and hope all goes well and you guys have fun once again come end of Jan.

    C'Mon Andy you can hold out 5 more days for an awesome announcement. I have all the faith in the world that you won't announce anything until my Birthday, and then it will be so awesome that everyone will bow before you :cheers: :beerhorns:

    That's right September 26 we will be blown away by awesomeness :smash: :3drunks: :shots: :heavydrink: :belly: :stagger: :chug: :givebeer: :viking: :party: :whisky: :beerhorns: :shots: :shred: :dreams:
