The PM's should be fixed now. We recently upgraded the back-end architecture of Dead.net, so there may be some things that operate differently now... hopefully they will be minor and will not adversely affect user experience.
Today the layout of the site (most notably the forums) has changed. Now there seems to be no way to access one's inbox or send PM's. Also when accessing a member's profile (e.g. admin, to point this problem out), the possibility to send that member a PM also seems to have gone.
Did the tech staff enjoy the holiday? Tapers Section for 2011 Sept 5 did not appear today.
strange happenings in the Show & Lyrics section too; instead of one page for the individual shows in a year like before, now separated into 3 or 4, each taking way too long to load.
also, photos in the archive going way outside the site frames. the archive and photo section really is the worst designed i've seen on a site.
please take a tip from some of the photographer's of the Dead's site's and arrange in that way. it just makes all that rich history come alive.
the avatar i selected takes up 50% of the page. i tried to delete the picture, but the avatar covers the delete picture button. Mac OS X 10.6.8
changes on Friday, no?
Hence it is due to change tomorrow.
This week's is still here
a bit late as the clock is approaching noon central time. The mercury is already at 90 F.
I'm interested in leaving the '80's behind and enjoying a '73 to '77 clip.
Thanks to David in advance
apologies to all the sensitive souls out there for the language, but surely you don't begrudge me exasperation at the consistent niggles that drench dead.net.
i know people who are impeccable at web design; shall i pass the names on to you?
come on guys, for fuck's sake.
there has been glitches on dead.net for a while now; especially the Shows section.
why suddenly split into 4 or 5 pages instead of one listing for each year? and when it does eventually load there's a weird bug in the system.
it's 2011; sort out the site that people want to use.
i have never experienced this on ANY other site, large or small. get your shit together.
for a band that used to invest in cutting-edge technology this is piss poor; archive and photo section continually stretches pictures or makes them disappear. what on EARTH is going on?
the archive should be immaculate; some of the planet's crappiest artists have smooth, elegant websites that are head and shoulder's above this one.
you have a magnificent library that is treated as some kinda college scrapbook.
gone are the days when you led the way.
