Welcome, Indeed!!

You're right, paisley, and we've given it alot of thought. Perhaps something right off that states that this is a moderated site, and therefore not a site with user-created topic areas, just like DeadNetCentral, and unlike Ratdog.

I'd think by now though, with the site being several weeks old, an astute new user would pick up right away that there are not 50+ daily, randomly created and non-integrated topics...

I'm not sure, though, where a first-time user would come across Access Denied, except maybe the fan photos, which while a sore spot, is being worked on and is in the Read First FAQ Section. Is there a better way, I wonder, to draw the new user's attention, than to post in areas called Read First, Before You Get Started, and FAQ?

Welcome?

...shall we go, you and I while we can...
Maybe it's a bit picky,but am I the only one who thinks its a little off-putting to have the first thing I see on the site state in bold letters "Access Denied", How 'bout "You can't see this yet" or "We know it's blank,Okay?" something a bit more friendly?

Same with "You cannot post a forum on this page" , maybe something like" You can't open a thread, but you can write all you want to" or "We're open to suggestions for new threads because you can't start 'em yourself". I know you all must be very busy...just give it a thought.

Very nice site!

Very cool! Happy to be here. And a special hi to all my old Well friends. A special hi to Marye who used to know me as [baq] on the Well, way back from 1987 to 1990. And I noticed that David Gans hangs around too. Good to see the old Well crew is still about. We'll definitely drop by frequently. You can check out my intro in the Introductions forum, at http://www.dead.net/forum/introducing-ourselves?page=18. It has a piccie of my "kids". ;-)

Introduction

I am a relative new comer to the Dead family, having "discovered" them during college in 1988-1990. Since then, I have tried to get as many albums(cds) as possible, along with reading the band's history. Love the site, and can't wait to explore it in full.

Blessed Be!

Jared

Welcome, recent arrivals!

Just a head's up as you're joining us, there are no user-created Forums. If there's a discussion you're looking to start up, please let me or MaryE know, and we'll work to accomodate your request. Thanks - and enjoy yourself getting a feel for the place!

Welcome!

This new site here looks really cool!! Still a lot to discover, looks like it's growing fast. So far I have not found the answer to my question why I cannot post a new topic on the forum.

ATB, Joerg
