    I wouldn't be at all surprised if he can pin posts after the fact. Last year he was changing post titles with each announcement and I don't think that was possible before the big redesign either, no?

    To be fair, I don't think Andy has ever posted a Days/Months countdown post unless it was in the megathread, so so this is probably just an unorthodox start, and the first announcement will probably be tomorrow.

    Last year's Megathread was opened with the word "soon" and it was pinned from the start if I remember correctly.

    I don't think this will be the Megathread 2020... unfortunately

    Guys, it's a phpBB forum. Moderator Control Panel -> [thread] -> "Select Desired Action" drop-down - "Change to Sticky" - Submit.
    Edit: slightly different steps may be required depending on whatever Skin is being used.
    This can most certainly become a pinned thread / the Megathread.

    Double checked, this isn't actually true. He posted saying their hotline was now in three languages on April 12, on June 24th about Heavy Montreal, and that's it.

    That being said, if we don't see an announcement in another *checks watch* three hours, we're not getting one for a week or two.

    To be fair, I don't think Andy has ever posted a Days/Months countdown post unless it was in the megathread
    Not true, at least not this year. Countdowns have been posted on separate stand-alone threads, to which nobody replies :lol:
    That being said, if we don't see an announcement in another *checks watch* three hours, we're not getting one for a week or two.

    Maybe now that he has broken the record for shortest amount of days between first band announcement and sailing, Skipper wants to break another record.

    Latest point in the year for first band announcement!

    So maybe 1st of September for first bands - which coincidently is also my birthday, so that would be a nice present :)

    Do we even know for sure if the payment plan is still around? If I was Andy and saw that a minority of cruisers used it, I'd just scrap it since it's extra work involved. And then people who pay upfront don't have a discount. Gives umc less work and more money this way.

    Sep. 25th is the deadline
    Yep - 43 days to cutoff. Really not leaving a lot of time for announcements - gap - booking for golds - gap - booking for silvers - gap - booking for general public - cutoff.

    For bookings made up to September 25, 2019 you may choose to Pay in Full at the time of booking or in four easy monthly installments. For the installment plan, you pay a deposit of 25% of the Grand Total Ticket Price at the time of booking and then three additional monthly installments of 25% of the Grand Total Ticket Price 1 month, 2 months, and 3 months from the date of booking. Bookings made after September 25, 2019 must be paid in full at the time of booking.

    Statsman! If we got our announcement today, how long would each survivor tier have to book until the next tier opened, assuming they followed a similar timeline/structure as previous years?

    I hope I worded that right
    Give me Behemoth and I'll be ecstatic

    Last year there were 3 weeks between survivor booking opening, and the cutoff for the 4-payment-plan. I think that is a fairly logical timeframe, so lets keep that to start with.
    25 September - 4 payment cut off
    04 September - 3 weeks prior to the above, public bookings start

    Silver sales opened up 18 days before public sales.
    17 August - 18 days prior to public sales, Silver bookings start

    Gold sales opened up 10 days before silver last year.
    7 August - 10 days prior to silver bookings, Gold bookings start

    Emails to Gold survivors went out around 48 hours prior to sales opening for them:
    5 August - Emails to gold survivors

    So we are currently about 8 days 'overdue' using last years raw figures.


    Working with percentages, and rounding somewhat due to the anomalies of me being 'a day behind' sometimes with my dates due to being Australian :P

    50 days between emails to Golds and cutoff for 4 payment plan. we are now at 43 days.

    21/50 = 42%
    X/43 = 42%
    X = 18 days

    So 18 days prior to cutoff, public sales would open on:
    07 September

    18/50 = 36%
    X/43 = 36%
    X = 15.5

    So 15 days prior to public sales, silver bookings would open on:
    23 August

    10/50 = 20%
    X/43 = 20
    X = 8.6

    So 9 days prior to silver, gold bookings would open on:
    14 August

    Summary
    9 days between Gold and Silver
    15 days between Silver and Public
    18 days between Public sales and the four payment cutoff

    Hope that answers your question?
