Feature Release: Latest Show On Homepage, User Stats, Song Stats, and A nugs.net Giveaway!



  • NERDS! Today is the day. Six months in the making and we can finally say that the Spaffnerds have stats! We've launched 3 new features today that will enrich your user experience:

    New Spaffbase Homepage
    I've been asked a bunch if there was an easy way to get to the setlist/recordings for the "latest" show. Well the wait is over. Simply go to https://spaffnerds.com/ and you'll see the setlist from the last show along with any recordings and attendance. We've also added a couple of links that will get you quickly into all shows with recordings as well as song stats. Wait... what? Song stats???

    Song Stats
    Yeah, that's right... I said it... We now have stats for songs. You can check out play frequency, gaps, first time played, last time played, and a more robust presentation of song history! You can see it by heading into the songs section and clicking on any song. Go!

    User Stats
    BOOM! It's here. You've added the shows you've been to, now we can tell you about what you've seen. Head over to your user profile on the forum and click the "Spaffbase Stats" button. That will take you over to the spaffbase and show you your stats. You can also view other people's stats by clicking through the user section of the forum, going to their profile, and then clicking the "Spaffbase Stats" button.

    nugs.net Subscription Giveaway
    It's back! We're doing it again. We've got a 3 month nugs subscription to give away. Here's all you have to do:

    • Go to one either Twitter or Facebook and follow/like our account/page. We use these to let you know about recording announcements and other good stuff that we do here. We really try to keep posting to only stuff that will give you value. So subscribe
    • After you've subscribed to one (or both) come back here and reply to this topic. You can reply and just say you're in, but it would be a lot cooler if you took something from your stats, or one of the song stats, and posted that. There's some interesting things out there, so spread the word.
    • We will draw next Saturday, 11/17 at 11 AM AZ time.

    So... yeah! Happy Saturday. Have fun at the VIP show tonight. Share your stats!

    NOTE: THE TIME OF THE DRAWING HAS BEEN UPDATED TO BE EARLIER SO THAT I CAN LEAVE FOR FLAGSTAFF! I'LL SEE YOU THERE!!!


  • $$

    I'm in!!
    The thing I learned via a quick glance at my song stats is that Weasel is my most heard song. And I love it!!!



  • @damian Of course I'm in.. I don't twit.. stats? Does that work? Also.. the drawing date is my b-day. :)


  • 6up

    Love the new "stats" feature and last nights set list being the 1st thing u see when coming to the forum..
    definitely cool additions..
    looks like VBD, S&S, and The Postman are my most seen songs.. but then again.. i've only seen 3 shows.. :)


  • $$$

    Don't know why I wasn't follwing Spaffbase on Twitter already... but I am now! One of the first 10 of what will on day be thousands!

    Stats are AWESOME!! I LOVE the breakdown not only of what songs I've heard, but which set they were in too. Salamander is my most heard song and I couldn't be happier about that. But then again I love every song they play sooooo.....

    You sir... Continue to display your fine character. <3

    @damian The character of this fan base is one of my favorite things about Spafford. I'm just keeping up my end of the bargain!



  • @SociableJimmy

    I think the great philosophers Bill S. Preston, Esq and Ted "Theodore" Logan said it best when they declared:
    bill and ted be excellent to each other



  • Rainman in both! wondering how you would update/notify of available recordings for shows. First 2 shows @ Hulaween, bet I'm not alone in FL.. and soon to have more under our belt, TYVM! anyhow, Thanks to TheSoberGoat there are YouTubes of entie sets for both nights too:

    Spafford - Suwannee Hulaween 2017 (Thursday) – 29:19
    — TheSoberGoat

    Spafford - Suwannee Hulaween 2017 (Saturday) – 32:23
    — TheSoberGoat



  • @Rainman absolutely. It's actually on my to-do list but finishing stats had been my priority.


  • $$$

    @Heidi-Saller hmm... Wonder if 2 part weasels count twice hehe. I love these updates @damian, bet you were tired of getting stats questions

    I've had backdoor funk at all 3 shows, but I knew that since it's easy to keep track of just 3 shows😉

    They do not count twice! Thank you very much! :)

    Seriously though. I actually had to change the language on the song pages. I originally said "Played X times", then had a breakdown of counts by set. But @Cody pointed out that the X and the sum of the sets didn't match. There were cases where a song had been played 2x in the same show, once in the first set and once in the second. So I changed the language to say "Played at X shows." That made it a lot more clear that X and the sum of the sets didn't necessarily have to add up.

    BUT... if you see something say something. I'm not claiming that this is perfect, nor am I closed to updating these numbers to make more sense. This product is only as good as WE make it.



  • No real interesting stats in my first three shows. No songs played all 3 times, and only 4 played twice. According to this I was the only nerd at my first show, but that is not too surprising I guess considering they were opening for another band (Midnight North) in a pretty small room (Winstons OB).
    Sure would love that nugs subscription! I'm in. Great job adding the stats. No point in being a nerd if you can't nerd out on stats!

    That's pretty cool. You're one of those oddballs like me that caught a show back in the day but then had a multi year break until the next one. Very cool!

    Thanks for the kind words... It's been a ton of work. My wife is a saint. ;)



  • I'm in!
    Steak Sauce has only been played once and it was played at my 2nd show.



  • @Jeremy-Farkas oh man you've got a Catfish John too!!!



  • @Jeremy-Farkas Yeah your first show was killer, I have listened to that many many times. The jammed out Hollywood into Reprise is my favorite part!



  • I’m in!!

    I’ve yet to see my first show, so I don’t have any stats yet. I will say, come Feb, you can bet I’ll be geeking out over my stats.

    Got a song you're chasing? How rare is it?
