GOTV comes up in the What's Your Favorite Summer Festival topic; if it gets really overwhelmed there I'll move it. Ditto Nelsons Ledges. I've heard great things about both of them.

Would enjoy to hear some positive vibes about a Fall venue

Only had a chance to catch both shows at the Spectrum. It was the closest location because I live in Ohio. In recent years, the band seems to circle around us Ohioans. C town baby. The only event to look forward to is Nelsons Ledges.

sorry, the deal here

as on Dead Net Central, is that only moderators can start topics. This is fundamentally a chaos-management decision we made two years ago, and having seen some of the more free-for-all sites have big problems with everything from sheer overwhelming size to invasions of bad actors, we have not, to put it mildly, had cause to regret that decision.

As for the variations on the theme of best-of, I'm all for it if they've got enough popular support. Any interest, folks?

SUGGESTIONS

Love the forums here but I have a few suggestions. I hang my hat at several difft forums from Fantasy Football to Gambling sites to Grateful Dead etc, etc....

WHy is it that we can't start our own new threads??? I've never seen anything like that at any forum, anywhere.

I like the idea of the "Best of" thread but it is 200 posts long and IMO would be best served if you have say a best of "Loser" thread, best "Terrapin" etc, etc... I am a long time Head but I can tell you I don't know shows and dates off the top of my head like some of these cats do. I read through 100 posts in that thread looking for the best Terrapin and haven't come across much yet. Maybe individual threads for each song, or maybe have a thread devoted to what we would like to see as a "Best of" thread... I know Loser and Terrapin would be my first two.

That's my .02 on that topic.

How bout a Best of 70's shows, Best of 80's etc, etc??? Best of Brent shows???

Maybe an all time Best Show thread....members would post their favorite show which in turn staff would narrow down and maybe a poll of some sort to get the All Time Top 10 shows....see, I'd start these threads but unfortunately I am "not allowed to post new content in forum"...that's mind boggling to me that I can't create a thread on a forum...isn't that what forums are all about?

One other thing in regards to the forums...I notice you don't have a "quote" option, where we can't quote another members post and answer it directly. There are two members looking for the best Days Between in that thread, we should be able to quote it and answer it directly rather than just make a post.

Let me know if you need any additional help.

Thanks,
Northbound Train

we thought about that but we're not set up so well for it. Until such time as that changes, please feel free to avail yourself of the In Search Of (people, info, stuff) topics for this purpose.
