The dashboard is your personlised home on Gigulate. It's where you should go to get the latest news and gigs related to artists on your watchlist.
Whenever we index and calculate a story's importance, we check if it's relevant to you... if it is, it'll appear in your dashboard. It's not a river of news, it's scored and rated music news for you.
If a gig is in your area and it's relevant to an artist in your watchlist, then it'll appear on your dashboard
Simple, just goto your watchlist page and add / remove artists from there.
