    So glad you made it... Welcome to the updated Dead.net! If you've been around for a while, you should find your familiar haunts much as you left them, though some of them may be in slightly different locations.
    If you're joining us for the first time, we're delighted to see you! We invite you to just poke around and make yourselves at home.
    A few possibilities:
    -Tape trading (digital and otherwise)

    - All About My Band (the one you're playing in)

    Still can't chat, but spammers are working

    Mary,

    Initially this was about chat not working, but I cleaned my cache and now it appears to be working so all is good.

    Oh, and if you look in this forum, there appear to be a bunch of spam in here now.

    Peace,

    -Dave

    Chat? (nevermind)

    Hey Marye. Can't sleep so I thought I'd see if anyone else was on chat but it won't let me in. I'm logged into the site (obviously) but when I go to dead.net/chat the top right goes from my avatar to the silhouette and the page says I must be logged in to use Chat. If I click the silhouette, it takes me to my page (no re-login needed), but if I go again to the chat URL, it goes back to not logged in.

    Apparently all I need to is write this and <ctrl>F5 on the chat page, and I'm in! Long strange trip.

    Peace,

    -Dave

but if my iphone is any indication, that black bar at the top is obscuring your avatar and its nice menu with Log Out on it. I will report this to the tech folks. Anyway, glad you're here.

But the new site is alright with me.

It seems like its easier to get to some of the "other" sections, but not as quick to get to the latest release thread. Which is okay, it might spread out the traffic a little. Those threads could get unwieldy very quickly.

Since the issue I described seems to be unlikely to be affecting you: If you can see and tap/click/press/whatever your avatar up there on the upper right, it will reveal a menu that includes Logout. Also the ever-popular Recent Posts. Let me know if this works okay for you. Thanks!

hit a bit of a snag in the transition. The intrepid tech team is working on it. It may be some days before this gets fixed, but we're on the case, honest. Yeah, the golden road is bumpy sometimes... Thanks for the heads up, and bear with us!

My problems

1) Last night my password wouldn't work. to log in I had to request I new one (account info was remembered by the system).
To comment today I again had to request a new password after my new password wasn't recognized.

2) Wanted to post about this from IceCreamKid:
"After posting that last comment I was sent to page 6 of this message board.
Why wasn’t I sent to the most recent post of this page?
And another...
Those navigation numbers on the bottom of the page
First......1,2,3......Last
Put a copy of those on the top of the page too so that you don’t have to scroll to the bottom of the page just to move to another page."

That experience happened to me too (at first, thought my comment had not posted, then saw the page number) and his request is one I firmly second. If you have comments appearing newest first, scrolling to the bottom the page to change pages is annoying and there should be the same page list/links available above the comments as there is below.

Hope that my password problem goes away. Hope the vast fields of white do get filled in with something interesting but not distracting or obfuscatory.

The site did seem to need an overhaul. Hopefully, this overhaul will be beneficial. Thanks for trying, GDM crew.
(And when I posted this to the DaP page, I was bounced to page 6 again...)

Thanks Mary for all of your patience, help and therapy!!! I know websites must stay current with trends and technology. I like the general direction the new site seems to be heading in, but will wait for pats-on-the-back at this point. Here are some things I've noticed.

[Viewing Via Chrome (Version 69.0.3497.100) on MacBook Pro/High Sierra v. 10.13.6]

GENERAL
1. Dim the background or add cool, subtle background so the new site does not continue causing headaches and/or blindness.
2. Seems like every time you do anything, you have to re-take the reCaptcha exam. Is this necessary?

MESSAGES
1. The personal message board takes a very long time to download compared to other locations on the new site..
2. There is no “PM member” button with poster’s avatar/comment, or on their member info page, or anywhere else I can see.
3. Doesn't look like you can "Preview" messages created on .../private_messages/ before sending. I'm only seeing a "Save" button.
4. PM’s seem to get posted to the wrong “Subject” thread, even if you re-enter the intended subject in the subject field. (Maybe they go to the first thread between the participants… or maybe by alphabet?)

COMMENTS PAGES
1. Indicate newly posted comments with “NEW”. This was a very helpful feature in the website’s previous incarnation.
2. Allow more comments per page - previously you could select how many comments were displayed per page.

Thanks again for the therapy!

The drop down menu next to the avatar does not appear when using an iPad.

For the third day my password needed resetting to get me in.
The request email to reset password system works GREAT. Sends message instantly and the process is painless, but annoying. All in all, this is NOT a terrible problem for me and quite manageable.
Am logging in via a macBook, OS10.6.8 using FireFox 48.02. Did not have this problem before the site upgrade.

My avatar pic and account info all survived the upgrade fine and the password reset system leads me straight to my account. It is just the log in password recognition that has gone hinky.
My password choices are registered as "weak" by the evaluation system, but the "changes (are) recorded".

Looks like my account is intact. Are discussions about new product on the product order pages now gone permanantly?

I've been poking around...in the show archive section, if you key in a year, the screen returns with shows from that year. but if you try to page forward in the event the show you're looking for is not on the first page, the screen reverts back to 1965 shows. It didn't happen each time, but something like 4 out of 5 times this happened.
Searching by venue didn't seem to work at all.

EDIT: seems to be corrected now...thanks

also...your GOTCHA is incredibly aggressive

They are all here: https://www.dead.net/forum/72336 There's actually a lot of good thought behind this, because it was often the case that something would sell out or otherwise become unavailable, but wait, there's this huge conversation attached, we can't just remove it... This way, we avoid causing further distress to people trying to order something that's been out of stock since 2011, and the conversations are in a nice safe place where folks can go right on conversing. So please do!

I'm with those that say the new site sucks! I definitely don't like the white background, and in my opinion the text is too small. Or are you throwing us older Heads in the trash?

This is definitely not a one-size-fits-all issue, but I (being old) find it helpful to use the Zoom In or equivalent in the browser's View menu, which makes things bigger. And also reduces whitespace. fwiw.

Every time I try and login it doesn't work. I have to reset my password every time. I have to go into the link in my email. Why won't it remember my password? I've tried on my phone and computer. It does the same thing on both.

Hi Marye...

Where do you find a Dave's pick where you can go to that particular pick and see Dave's chat, Music samples, and peoples comments. Then you click on it in the store and it just says sold out.

The discussion threads from the product pages moved here: http://www.dead.net/forum/72336 The reasoning behind this was finding a way to keep the discussions available and live even after the product was sold out. I'll see what I can find out about the Dave clips etc.

The search function does not work and you have to go page by page through all the years beginning with the first show to get to the one you're looking for. Is this still being worked on?

Please bring 'Shows by Year' back! And on another note, please up the number of comments viewable per page. 9-12 comments at a time just does not cut it when some threads are populated with hundreds of comments.

Thanks, this is quite useful. While we are working on this, you may find it useful to search by venue alone, because I've had good success with that.

Hoping we will see 30 Days of Dead 2018? Any chance we can get to the 2017 archive too?? I appear to have lost most of 2017 in a computer mishap...thanks!
