RE:"You are not allowed to post a new forum topic" ??

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?

In Memory of

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.

after I wrote this and shut

after I wrote this and shut off the 'puter before, it hit me, why not make these topics into Sections, and then allow topic creation in these new areas?

'you can please all of the people all of the time'

or create one new section with these headings (and any others people want) and allow topic creation? it would seem like a common sense solution. if it is a software issue, that it is either all or none, OK. but if the software of the board would allow topic creation in one or two sub-headings, why not?? no hurry, just chewing the fat here. (Naturally, I mean after you get all of the bugs out of the system and all that other stuff that you folks have to deal with)

kind of like a compromise between festival seating and requiring people to sit in their assigned seats. people can move anywhere they want to on the floor, but if you are in the mezzanine, you should sit in your reserved seat. didn't Hampton do that in 87 or 88? just an idea.

Compromise is one of the 'C's in C C Joe

peace.

how about a Grateful Life

how about a Grateful Life section?

by this, I mean stuff which is connected to the grateful philosophy of life, all things grateful, and experiences we have had which may not have been at shows or totally band/music related.

another, meeting heads in odd places, or experiences with heads in places other than shows/on tour. that could be called 'Strangers Stopping Strangers'

like when I met a middle aged Indian gentleman in the gardens of the Taj Mahal and he went off on a tirade about why did the dead play in Egypt but never in India...

another, 'Parking Lot'
pretty much anything goes there.

finally, a 'Soapbox' where peole could feel free to rant (in a nice way) about just about anything...

food for thought.

peace.

TC topic now created! Also Donna Jean topic

And yes, topic creation is turned off for the moment at least because we're trying to get things working properly on a relatively finite number of topics. If there's one you want started (like, say, TC and Donna Jean), send a message to izzie or me and we'll get on it. Thanks.

"You are not allowed to post a new forum topic" ??

Hello,

Love the new decor.

"You are not allowed to post a new forum topic"

Surely this is not going to be how this forum works?
