stuff like that which is not band/music related but stuff that the community likes to rap about
"The highway is for gamblers, you'd better use your sense. Take what you have gathered from coincidence"
What about adding some places to post similar to some of the popular old folders? Not least of which would include:
and most importantly a Garcia folder!
We're actually kinda thinking about implementing something like that, but at this moment have nothing to preannounce...
What about a "This Day in GD History" Topic? On the "old" board, I posted links (about everyday) to places where you could listen to shows (streaming and on the legal!). I'd love to do one on a daily basis where I'd put up a link to and about a GD show played that day in history.
I just love posting links to music, especially the GD!!!
I'm just a, well...porpoise.
cool. very cool. thankx.

and not just because it was my idea... ( -;

It's called The Scene, and has two new topics, as requested!
For the moment, it's primarily a chaos-management issue because a lot of things still aren't working quite right. But as mindbender points out, there are also meta-issues about the way the software handles things, and it's not exactly what we're used to either. We're kinda bumping down this road together, to say nothing of up the learning curve.
And we're also trying to figure out how things might be structured a bit more intuitively and making incremental experiments with what tools we've got. I'm not kidding, the sections we have are the result of brainstorming last week about uh, what categories do we really need within the parameters of keeping it fairly simple during the shakedown? Not unlike a certain band, we're kinda figuring this out as we go along. So be patient with us, and keep the thoughts coming.
Apropos of which, CC, we're trying to figure out some underlying structure issues, but at least a couple of them should be up today. And Lazy, yours is a little easier to implement, so I'll be back in a few with the link.
Its the achilles heel of this forum. Look at the URLs. It looks like if people were allowed to create new posts, and a duplicate topic is posted, it would mess things up because posts aren't arranged with numbers. I certainly hope things will change but I don't see how without ripping this thing down and adding a whole new forum. Can a MOD comment on this?

How about a topic for all of our dearly departed friends? I don't know about you all, but I know way too many Heads who are dead... There were some very special people that many of us in the community knew who died on the bus. This seems like a great place to honor our memories of them.
