Mary, I know about the "My Shows" on the LH bar, but as dead.net used to be, so anyone, including outsiders, who are not registered or signed in, could see what shows, from none to 3000 or so shows any particular registered used attended.
As far as I'm concerned, not seeing that infromation makes dead.net a more secure and safer site.
And again, thank you (& Izzy) very much for all the work you do around here, keeping us D'Head's in order around here and being a go-to person for us.
Peace, sistah!

Subscription Service

This isn't a site specific feature, per say, but a music subscription for the archival releases would be great. It is great to have the Taper's Section streaming and the Road Trips CD series. However, it would be nice to have a subscription service that allows you to download new music when it is available. As much as I love buying the newest archival release as a CD, some folks might prefer to buy a yearly subscription and just download new content as it becomes available.

side project performance resources

I understand this would have to take alot of time and work from alot of people but I feel when compilied that it would be a fun and useful resource for the GD community. I will do what I can in finding resources for side project info. Anyone else have any ideas?

well

I can assure you that we pay attention to suggestions and some of them eventually come to fruition. Some don't. I will pass this along. I do not know what's possible and what's not.

I would suggest, however, directing your attention initially to finding out who, if anyone, has compiled such extensive lists for the side projects a la DeadBase. And since much of our information on GD set lists comes from DeadBase, you might want to go post any queries and corrections in the DeadBase Need Your Help topic in the forums, as Stu Nixon is keeping an eye on that. I think the likelihood approaches zero that we're going to have the resources to compile such lists from scratch; if you can point to existing resources that at least moves things further along. As the side projects proliferate so do the complications of record-keeping.

In short, I don't know if it's doable or not but somebody doing the groundwork and reporting back wouldn't hurt. Thanks.

Good news

I agree about the show listings and Turtle's astute observation and desire to engage younger fans. It just suits the complete archivist's sense that many of us have...

re: adding projects passed 1995 for show review and attendance

Yes Mr. DeadTurtle, I have it on good authority that the suggestions you've made will most definitely be implemented here. In fact, I'm certain that these changes will go into effect in a matter of hours! Thank you so much for your input! Have a nice day :))
