It's my sad duty to inform you that there will be no chart this week. Basically what happened is; apon trying to collect the statistics for the last week (airtime, votes, requests, listens and disconnects etc) from the server, the database took a massive dump and fell over. As a result I lost all the data from the last two weeks. I have tried in vain all morning to to repair or restore the database and have it back up and running but the data can't be recovered.
These things do happen from time to time and I apologize to those of you who have been waiting all week on the charts. Something I had been planning on doing was moving the day charts published once the new website was up anyway, so this actually gives me an ideal opportunity to do that. Starting this coming weekend the charts will publish on a Sunday. Email votes that have been submitted from this past weeks chart will carry over into the coming week.
Speaking of the new website, work is continuing at pace and within the next couple of weeks we should be up and running. I already have Chaz (Bassist from Rockett Queen) and Jeanne (Manager of The Scorseses) on board to help out in various roles which I will talk about more nearer the website reveal once I have a chance to get their input and feedback, and Paul and I will be having a chat with Dusty from Struck By Hammerz! this coming week about his involvement as well.
This is by no means a full crew and I would love to have members (band, management and listeners) involved in the new website as staff news writers, music reviewers, bloggers, forum moderators and anything else you can think of. Remember this is going to be a community website and the more the community is involved the better it will be. The objective is to be a one stop shop for all local/worldwide unsigned & signed music and events news with a social media aspect tying it all together.
If this sounds like something you would like to be part of then please get in touch with me.
You can get a hold of me via email - firstname.lastname@example.org and if you want my phone number so we can chat more about it just ask!
So, until this coming Sunday and the new chart, take care!
