Today I'm revealing the formula that is used to calculate the band ranking. (the order in which the bands are listed on BandNut)

I do this in hopes that bands will know the effort that is put into this as I try to make it a fair system. Please don't use this to try to find a way to cheat the system.

Calculations are made once a day in the early A.M.

  • New band second week temporary boost 40 pts
  • Edited profile or added an event within the last 4 months 10-25 pts
  • Has a band photo + 20 pts
  • Has Media added + 10 pts
  • About our band content length -(20)-20 pts
  • Properly formatted band email +4
  • City properly filled +2
  • State properly filled +2
  • music style filled +2
  • Current events points for events posted within 15 days prior and 30 days future 20-90 pts
  • Points for playing at popular venue 10-30 pts
  • Friends(non-band) active in the forums within the last 30 days 10-20 pts
  • average website refers a week since joined date or since '3/3/2008' which ever is the earlier date. 0-30 pts
  • average hits a week since joined date or since '3/3/2008' which ever is the earlier date. 0-40 pts

Therefore :
BandRating = (UptodatePts)+(PhotoPts)+(MediaPts)+(ContentPts)+(EmailPts)+(CityPts)+(StatePts)+(MusicStylePts)+(CurrentEventsPts)+(PopularVenuePts)+(ActiveFriendsPts)+(linkReferPts)+(PageHitPts)

So if you have suggestions feel free to post.
