Any hints on how to sync last and dis, so we can get our gigs up?
reading through seans post about what gigs people are going to, it seems like you could sync the two..
there's no way to add shows to DiS like you can on last fm
just the ways we've trialled in the past basically meant a lot of scope for idiots (of which, DiS is always afflicted with some) will start adding stuff we don't want in the database, etc.
also we wanna try to avoid people double posting. and obvs don't have the staff to keep ammending errors or even check for mistakes. whereas last.fm do have folks (and pedants) who sort this stuff out. i'd love to make the site all wiki-like but we'd need some man-power to moderate and manage it, as well as answer questions, etc and currently it's only me working full-time, luke doing a few hours a day, andrzej a couple of days a week and some board mods volunteering in their freetime.
instead we focussed on getting really good feeds but all of the feeds we've tried are terrible.
in theory when you add stuff to your last.fm calendar it should import the gigs to DiS. i'm seeing tom__ our tech whizz tomorrow so will check that this is still working (I think it might do it at like 2am, so once you're synced up wait a little bit and it should work some magic)
thats rather shite isnt it!
