Always OK to have a way to take your data and migrate away when using site generators like that. Companies get shut down, go crazy etc…November 26, 2019 at 12:19 #36653
Yes, trueNovember 26, 2019 at 12:24 #36654Vegard B. HavdalKeymaster
We're going to close dampsaba when you are done with this of course, no need to have the old unmaintained and outdated app running.November 26, 2019 at 12:56 #36655
But it's still going to take a while when this is done.
I'm now going to start on year 1997November 26, 2019 at 15:42 #36656cloudhawkerParticipant
Oh don't you worry about the time it takes. I think you have progressed quickly through most of those glorious 90's. We have waited decades for something like this so give or take a few weeks… Grateful, not impatient, is the word that covers what I'm thinking. Cudos.November 29, 2019 at 21:34 #36657
Small update about the progress: We've already put +400 gigs into the database.
The functionality of having your own "account" to add your attended setlists is ready. But it will be open for public if all the setlist are added. You'll be able to see which songs and how many times and where you've heard it.
I've also updated the Stats page with countries and cities.
You can also sort the songs on the song page.
About the layout: this is the first layout. When all the gigs are added, the layout will probably change slightly to improve the user experience.
Quick question: does anyone know what the song "Swiss Cheese Mountain" is?
It was played on the following gig: https://mpdb.space/gig/1997/05/18/geneva-ptr/
I know that "Swiss Cheese Mountain" is a part of Hell, but is that the same song they've played in 1997?November 29, 2019 at 23:36 #36658Johnny_HeartfieldParticipant
Ha – wrong thread. Just wanted to post my impressions of the wonderful MaelstrÃ¶m clip here Think first, write second Johnny!December 2, 2019 at 15:13 #36659
Thank you very much for taking on this project @Blashyrkh!
I have been way too busy to watch this site closely, so please excuse me if the following questions/ideas have already been considered…
I would love to see container fields for images. One field would suffice, but it would be great to have one field for setlist images, one field for gig posters, and one field for live images. Another consideration is a field to hold a URL for one or more external sites with images already posted.
I would also love to see a field with info about recordings made for each show.
One technical question, how many tables are involved in this database?
Finally, one other similar site to consider for ideas is the Black Crowes site… http://www.crowesbase.comDecember 9, 2019 at 15:17 #36660
Hi @Bionaut, the extra fields for images won't be a problem. But there can be an issue if we use these images on the website. We must have the rights of the photographer to put the images on the website. I have to check it out what's legally possible
There will be a field to see if there is a recording available. The field isn't visible yet, but it's already there
The number of tables: many tables (about 70) – it's a custom WordPress website. But not all these tables contain data for the songs, gigs, … that's about 5 or 6 tables.
I will check out the Black Crowes website for some idea. Thanks !
At this moment, we are working at high speed on this website. Already 740 gigs in the database. Still need to do 300, but we're getting there :STG:
If everything is ready, everyone can have an account to add there attended gigs to their account. Then you'll be able to see which songs you've heard and some other cool statistics.
This website is a project that will grow continiously. Hopefully there won't be any errors, but if there are, please let us now. Later on this week, I'll add an "Error" button on the gig detail page. If there's an error, just click on it and we'll fix it.December 24, 2019 at 09:04 #36661
Ho ho ho, merry Christmas to you all !
We've worked very hard the last couple of weeks to get all the database in the database and do quality checks. Now we can officially present you the MPDB: https://mpdb.space/
Filter functionalities on the gig page
There are two types of filters. One type that narrows down the results and the other one widens the results. You can use all the filters in combination with each other.
The filters options â€œtalkâ€ with each other. So if you choose Belgium, the venue filter will only show Belgian gigs.
Country: this one widens the results. For example, you can select Germany and Belgium. So the result will be Germans and Belgian gigs.
City: the same goes for this filter option. This one widens the results.
Venue: widens the results. If a venue has changed its name during the year. These multiple names will be shown as a separate venue.
Year: widens the results.
Date range: You can choose a start and end date. This narrows down the gigs.
Songs: You are able to type the songs in the input area and select them. Itâ€™s possible to select multiple songs. All the gigs of this selection will show up. You can use this in combination with all the other filter options. For example, you want to show all the gigs where Motorpsycho played S.T.G. and Greener in The Netherlands.
Recording available: due to the hard work of our tapers, there are a lot of recordings available on Motortrades and Dime. This filter option gives you an overview of which gigs are recorded.
Video(s) available: There are nice videos made during the years. Thanks to Bernie, all of these videos are collected on http://www.motorpsychodelicclips.com/. If you select this option, youâ€™ll get the gigs where there are videoâ€™s added to that specific on this website.
Tour / year stats
You can get tour/year statistics by going to the specific gig and click on â€˜tour statsâ€™ underneath the date and location.
You are able to see which songs are played and how many times during that specific year. If you click on the graph, youâ€™ll get an overview of the gigs where that song was played.
This shows you all the albums of which songs were played during this year.
This is an automatically generated setlist that contains the most played songs of that year. The number of songs on that setlist is the average of played songs over that year.
Next step of this project is adding names to the tour. So the 2019 tour is The Crucible tour.
What gigs are added to the DB?
This website contains all the Motorpsycho performances, including radio performances, â€¦ The Tussler shows arenâ€™t on this website, since The International Tussler Society isnâ€™t Motorpsycho.
Get personal statistics
When you have an account on this website, you can add gigs to it. In order to get an account, click on the login link in the top right corner and then click on the register link. If you're registration gets approved, you are able to log-in. I'll do my best to approve the registrations as quick as possible.
If you add attended gigs to your account, youâ€™ll be able to see how many gigs youâ€™ve added, how many songs youâ€™ve heard, how many unique songs, â€¦
Also later on, more statistics will be shown.
If you have an idea about an interesting feature, feel free to contact us on contact[at]mpdb.space Weâ€™ll see what we can do and if it is doable to implement into the site.
Mistakes on the website
It was a massive work to put all the gigs and songs into the database. But weâ€™ve finally did it ðŸ™‚ Due to the massive amount of songs, itâ€™s possible that there are mistakes. If you see a mistake, please let us know: contact[at]mpdb.space
Happy holidays !

guys, that's amazing work! very nice with the links to recordings, too.December 24, 2019 at 10:45 #36663
Hi supernaut, thank you!
But the website doesn't contain links to the recording. This isn't a torrent website.
The DB website only shows if there is a recording available or not.December 24, 2019 at 11:33 #36664
The registrations are open. You don't have to send an e-mail to create an account.
Just click on the login link in the top right corner and then on "register".
You can log-in after your account is approved.
I'll do my best to approve it as quick as possible.December 24, 2019 at 13:24 #36665Punj LizardParticipant
