New Jamband Forum Has Launched Focusing on Phish, The Grateful Dead (Furthur), Wilco, STS9, Umphrey's McGee, The Disco Biscuits, Moe., & MGMT

New York, NY, April 16, 2010 --(PR.com)-- PhanTank.com states at the top of their webpage simply... This is a forum for fans of the music of Phish | The Grateful Dead | the Disco Biscuits | Umphreys McGee | Wilco | STS9 | Moe | MGMT and Vapor. The vapor kind of sticks out but maybe there is something there.

Phantank is a forum dedicated to the fans of the jambands Phish, the Grateful Dead, Wilco, Sound Tribe Sector 9 (STS9), the Disco Biscuits, Umphrey's McGee, MGMT, Moe. and Vapor.

What sets this forum apart from others is its superior feature set... It includes sophisticated calendar integrations for event dates (concerts) allowing users to set status such as Will you be able to attend on 06-17-2010?
You may change your RSVP status at any time on or before 06-17-2010.
- Going and Have Extra(s) - Going and Need One - Need One and Ride - Need 1, Ride, Couch - I'm am Just Going - Chillin' in the Lot - Hmm... I just might be - Can't make this one - Will be there in spirit

Once a user has selected a status, their avatar and status appears on the calendar event date and you can get to their "facebook integrated" profile (wall) page from there. This system will enable and encourage true fans of the band to get their hands on tickets and keep tickets out of the hands of scalpers.

Some important differences between this new type of forum and older ones:

1. A facebook integration that allows users to simultaneously posts in threads and on facebook walls.
2. A full calendar with tour dates and ability to track 6 different statuses of how people are 'going to a show'
3. A full Arcade with Tournaments and Rankings
4. A convenient LiveChatBox with hosted parties every day at 4:20
5. Automatic hyperlinking, just type the link
6. Embed videos just by clicking a button and pasting the url
7. A user uploadable downloads section with 10+ MBps Download speeds.
8. Hosted on a core i7 server by itself.
9. Phish3d.com is owned by Phantank.com and is therefore being forwarded
increasing visibility.

Now, Phantank.com is not trying to copy other forums out there. It took the idea of a community and brought it to the next level with their feature set. If nobody has seen it yet it is worth taking a look.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
