Yeah who's idea?

This is just horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ugly, clunky (even for an experienced net user) ugly...really sorry for all this negativity. I am NOT a person who is opposed to new things, but this new look is dreadful! And figuring it out will NOT attract new users, I am relatively sure!

Thanks Unkle

Thanks Unkle Sam for the advice. Logging in to the site worked. Now my issue is that I aparently have to stay logged into the site at all times? I work in web security and I have a GIANT problem with this. Not to mention that anybody who has never been to the site or isn't a member is aparently not welcome because thay'll never be able to see the home page without "backdooring in." Doesn't sound very GD to me. Just an observation.

while I'm at it

I've got to comment about this new web site. Who's idea was this? Gone is the nice warm and friendly feeling I got when I use to view these pages, now, it looks like everyother site. It is generic, plain, simple, nonfriendly and hard on these old eyes. Why would you do this? I'm all for progress, but when it goes against all that is good, well it's just wrong. I wouldn't have even known I was on the Grateful Dead's web site if it wasn't for the steelie under that god awful grateful logo lettering. Gone are the good old trippy letters that use to grace this page, the way it is set up, the topics are too many and too cluttered, very difficult to navigate or even find what you need, the boarders make my eyes twinge and if stared at long enough might cause convulsions :) I don't like the way the posts show up on the pages either, just my opinion but I liked the old site when it had planets on the home page and you navigated thru space, now that's what the dead were all about.

yeah, I too had this problem, followed your same steps, I serched on bing, then acessed the site through the search engine, which worked, then rebookmarked the site, all this after I logged in, once logged in, seems to work ok, hope this helps some, once you get to site thru search engine, log in, then rebookmark, worked for me.

Can't get to site through home page.

I can't seem to get to site either by typing www.dead.net into address bar or by clicking on bookmark. It prompts me to download a zip file which in turn puts me in loop back to the original download prompt. Was able to get to site by searching for dead net and going in through other pages on the site. Once on the site I can navigate fine. Tried replacing my bookmark once on the site. Still doesn't navigate to page and prompts me to download zip file again.

Please help

pretty well documented

between the dictionary origin and Alan Trist's subsequent "The Water of Life" book that retells the original folk tale that inspired the name.

hmmm

Well, I guess I'm having trouble with it. I go to the edit link, but I just don't see an option that says USERNAME. I don't know. Thank you for the help though.

on your My Account page

there should be an Edit tab.

Click it and go to the relevant box, edit to what you'd like, and Save. That should do it. If you have trouble lemme know. You can also change your password.
