What Do You Do About Downloads Purchased from dead.net?

I purchased 52 album downloads from dead.net over the last year. I need to recover some. What do I do? There is no customer service number in the store and they don't answer inquires very well.

Feature was working, then it wasn't. Your questions were sent up the chain, gadeadhead.

A picture is worth what again?

What is the best way to post photos on this site?

I submitted a photo through a specific show's page several weaks ago and it was never posted. I realize that it was a very poor quality photo of the Omni venu screen in Alanta in '93. How do we know if the photo was received if we get no feedback? Also, what criteria is used to select photos? Is it based on quality of photography, uniqueness, or authenticity of the show?

Don't get me wrong, I am very pleased with the direction this site has gone. Although I realize that this format was created as a marketing machine that can help give insight as to what the fans would want to buy in the future, I believe it is an invaluable resourse for Deadheads as well. It has motivated me to dig through the old shoe boxes of photos and stuff to see what would turn up. Unfortunately, most of the good stuff is pre digital camera (not that I was in the right state of mind to take good shots in the first place). I was a witness to some great moments and I hope the horizons of acceptablility for submitted photos will be expanded somewhat.

Thank you for a real good time.

DMD

User Created Topics...

....policy has not changed, sorry. There are no user-created topics, nor will the software support some areas with and some areas without that feature. Think the topics and forums are clunky now? Imagine it with several hundred threads....

We continue to encourage you to let us know what topics you'd like to see. Goffchile, if there's something you want to discuss that you don't see a forum for, please just drop me a line and we can most likely work out a place for that conversation.

some suggestions

First of all, I am new here and think the new website is very good, and I like the ideas for many of the forums,but the execution is a little of a problem. As others have said, the forum section is cumbersome and not terribly conducive to having an actual discussion between members (community forum, right?) I think the users should have more freedom to create descriptive topics/threads under the subsets and specifically respond to others interested in that same topic without having having to plow through dozens of unrelated posts. As an example, the "I'm looking for" section is really almost useless because you can't actually find anything in it.

It does make sense in some categories to limit topics--for example, there is no point in having more than one thread on any particular show, And I think some of the predetermined threads where folks are invited to share particular experiences, introduce themselves, discuss dead related charities etc. make sense, but user made subtopics with discreet threads also make sense in some areas.

That is my dime for a cup a coffee.

Thanks to the moderators!

Spam

Yeup. I got that one too and deleted it. I'll make sure our tech folks are aware.

oh no spammed already on deadnet

I just received the following unsolicited invitation to get in touch with a certain Teeyah Bonke. (member name Teeyah4you)

''Hi,
I found you very interesting with a faith that you will be a great friend to me.
Pls can you contact me with my address so that i can tell you more about myself with my photo and the reason why i contacted you.teeyah4you@yahoo.com
Thanks.Teeyah’'

If you google this name you get a reference to someone from Sierra Leone looking for love on a military dating site!!!

Congratulations, Dead.net has made it to the big time…we are spam victims already!

No surprise I suppose...I Love the site and all you are doing to make it happen and keep it real

good news

Be careful, Howard. I like my hippie men old and cranky. It's so much fun to make 'em smile!
