Please check the FAQ section in Before You Get Started in the Welcome Mat area for details.
Short version, we're trying to get things working, and trying to do so with a manageable number of topics. We're also trying to build a system that works for people who come from a lot of different systems with a lot of different features. On some (DNC, for example) you can't create topics at all. On others (the Well, for example) you can.
We already have some people complaining there are too many topics. We have others complaining because they can't start 'em. We don't know at this point what it will look like long term.
Meanwhile, if you want a particular topic, send a Private Message to me or izzie, and we'll do our best to get it going. Thank you.
Any one know why the site wont let me post a new forum topic?

no problemo. it was a weird mind fuck, though. total twilight Zone... ( -:
Is it possible to have a listing for shows we attended like the Dead for individual member shows and side projects like, Phil & Friends, Rat Dog, The Other Ones, The Dead, Mickey, Rhythm Devils, Go Ahead ect ect ect........
I like the feature for the Shows We attended and that we can post comments about them. It would be cool to do that for the aformentioned side projects.
the mods (as we learned!) have the Delete key. We're planning to delete obvious duplicative posts and stuff like that. But we'll tell you first! (really, Joe. We'll tell you first.)
OK, I'm a slow learner. ( -;
I tried it with the 2 page introduction thread, and it did, indeed, go back to the first page, from the top, all over again. though I do see what you mean about hitting reply. that would help with the cut and paste quote thing, but oh well, if I gotta scroll down, and then hit 'last page' I guess that is what I gotta do.
then, another thing, after I did the 'test' in the Introduction thread, I tried to go back and delete it, but I couldn't figure out how to do that.
so, (OK, I promise these will be my last questions for a while)
is there a way to delete posts? other than editing it, and writing in deleted? because you can not re-post an empty field...
is there a time limit on the edit feature? this I would think would be a good idea for the sake of continuity and NOT being able to re-write history.
well, the next screen popped up on the top of the page... meaning I had to scroll down to see what I put. I wonder how that will work on a two page thread. I'll give it another try on a 2 page thread.
I suppose it will just take some getting used to. I use a Mac most of the time, so I never got used to doing that right click thang to scroll down. (actually, my Mac had a really weird set up for the opening screen, but I think that is a local problem at home since the software and explorer version is a little old...)
I just hit reply on your answer... let me see here.
just a moment, please.
CCJoe: is there a way to NOT go back to the first page of a thread after making a post?
Not that I've been able to find you. I have learned, though, that if you want to Reply to a particular post, and use the Repy option, it puts that original post alone on your screen so you can see it, no matter where on the page you were when you found it.
I've also learned that the All Recent Posts button there on Dead.Community gets you to a screen with, who knew, all the recent posts marked as
is there a way to NOT go back to the first page of a thread after making a post?
in another thread that is now 2 pages long, after i posted something, it automatically took me back to the start of the thread rather than to my post (the end of the thread)
