Transplants vs. seeds

Thanks Marye for thinking of wasys to take some of the dysfunction out of this mess. How ever fun this forum is, I know that we have lost one or two (probably more) good people. Most of us do not have the time or patencetes to sift thorough 900 post to find the end of that vine.

Sending you a PM is no big deal and should be fairly easy to do. (from our end). A separate folder could be opened for those looking for that special show to be vined.

vines

I don't think the way things are now is that bad. When you sign up for a vine, you just monitor it until the next person signs up. Sure, reposting can be a hassle, but taking 5 minutes to look through 10 or 20 pages for the last post isn't that big of a deal. Just my 2 cents.

in theory...

the person who wanted to start a new vine would PM me.

However, I kinda like your idea of having a New Vines topic and then transplanting, too. Given the tools we've got, I think it's pretty much equally clunky either way from an administrative standpoint, though I suppose we'll have to find that out the hard way.

This vine is on the way to Hal R.

Thanks everyone above me.

If anyone can figure out a way to put the travles of a vine on a Google map, I think it would be hilarious to see where the vine has been and to see how many miles each of these travels!

wow - that's a bit of work marye

Thank for looking at new ways to make this work better, it is a lot to wade through right now.
But shouldn't there also be a topic entitled new vines, where people could post when they have something new? Otherwise how would we start new ones? When could people sign on to new vines, would that be after it is started as a topic?

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

Okay, folks

I've been mulling over the topic relaunch issue, because I totally agree the present setup is too chaotic to work.

In practical terms, I don't think we've got any reasonable alternative to having a separate topic for each vine, so I propose to start a Vine folder and put all the topics in it.

The glaring downside to this is that Izzie or I would have to start each topic; the software is what it is, zits and all. And I think this is still better than the current version.

So, toward that end:

1. If you hate this idea, now's the time to speak up, as this is probably my weekend task.

2. If you're the person with whom a particular vine is currently residing, please send me a PM with the current vine info (i.e. show date, list of folks on the vine, and anything else that seems relevant) for the topic header.

Thanks much!

Keeping the two way flow going and giving Sunshine Daydream a spell, sign up here for lucky 13 shows (some partial) from 1970 on 2 DVDs (SHN and FLAC). First on the list PM me with address details.

NOTE1: Beware. Whoever takes this on first will need DVD facilities. You may be begged by other viners to transfer to CDs (23 I think!).

NOTE2: The original 2 DVD set remains circulating in Europe through Eurotraders in the usual way. These are copies made to share with our generous US friends who have sent so much our way.

Here are brief details. PM me for full details if you wish.
