Considering we have no way

Considering we have no way to start new topics and we're limited in what we can post about, it might be time to bid adieu to Dead.net.

Nice try, folks :)

Robert Hunter's Birthday

...shall we go, you and I while we can...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROBERT HUNTER!!!

It might be a nice idea to open a happy birthday thread for the only member of the band who was never onstage...Bob turns 66 tomorrow! Maybe you've got something in mind already, but it seems appropriate to acknowledge this.With out those words, there would have been no songs!

you are already there

So you do have a book topic, under Offline. How about making it a little more obvious, please? Thanks.

new topics

How about books about the Dead (especially the newest- Grateful Dead Gear) and another just about books-other than Dead related. There are a lot of literate foks here who share many of the same interests and inspirations. I know I am not the only one here who lives in the world of poetry, music, art and nature.

new threads

thanks for your comment, Sunnydrop. We didn't set up new topics for a week or so there while we were waiting for things to settle down a little after the initial start up. You'll be seeing new topics popping up this week (check out MaryE's awesome note with the links and all!) and in the future. Please keep the suggestions coming!

And be grateful for MaryE's discretion, else there would have been a topic called simply, Pee Songs.

My sugguestion is you need

My sugguestion is you need more threads per forum. For instance, in the "I'm Looking For..." forum, if you are not going to allow people to start threads, then at least start a few yourself.. one for "Looking for old Tour Friends, another for looking for a show, looking for misc.. ect.

Thank you :)

"MY Songs" Feature

...shall we go, you and I while we can...
Okay, now that I've listed the 168 shows I attended, how about a feature that lists the songs played and the frequency with which I heard them? That weould be kinda cool, don't you think?

New Topics

Folks, really. I don't make this stuff up.

There is nothing in the current software that will allow us to create some areas with open topic-creation, and some areas with moderated topic creation. There is no function within the software that will set limits, like X number of topics per day/week/lifetime. And there isn't an automatic roll-over or nukage function.

MaryE and I will keep talking about it with the rest of the admin team.
