Open it up to user-created topics? Nope. (We've had this conversation since day one, for those just joining us now.)
I know they do it on Rat Dog, and I know they don't do it at DNC. We're going with the current model, and it seems to be working pretty well. Drazzaz420, if there's a topic you'd like created, please feel free to let me or MaryE know! We'll be happy to try to accomodate your topic.
I think the time has come to open up the new topics options...
So far so good. Like the new site and the fact that there are a couple of moderators to keep things under control. I belong to several online forums and they can get nasty, keep up the good work girls. Did not see the Dead much, 10 shows, however very unforgettable. Thanks for all u dooo. Oh, BTW straydog, nice pic ( -:>
We......are the eyes of the world!!

what she said!
Jeremy, I think it's pretty safe to say that lots of folks share your concern and are working on it, and we're really sorry about all the misadventure.
We're working on setting up a process where we've got someone working directly with the Store folks to get this resolved. Meanwhile, if something's not going right for you on the Store side, you've emailed firstname.lastname@example.org to no avail, and you'd like to get this resolved, send the particulars to izzie or me; we'll pass it along and stay on the case.
Again, thanks for your patience.
let's see if I can find a few answers here.
moxxie said: Questions for the design/dev team: will there be an opportunity for users to volunteer support for user experience/bug reporting/etc for future alpha/beta releases of new features?
You guys are doing that right now, right? You're voluntarily sharing your on-site experiences with us, reporting bugs and freakiness, and contributing ideas for future releases. Is that what you're asking, moxxie?
JeremyP said: As noted, I have no idea whether my order was accpeted or processed - that is a NONO for online purchases.
Yep. Customer Service at the Store level is flakey. MaryE and I are working closely with the admin staff, who share all of our frustations with the ramp-up for the Store. I have every confidence that it's going to get better in the very near future. Please, bear with those cats over there just a little bit longer - it seems they weren't quite ready for the huge response they received with the new release!
and to our European friends - technical staff is on board to help speed things for you folks. If you have specific instances of loading-freakiness, please let us know.
and finally. Jodestar said: I hope the mods are on the ball with that one. A lot of old school tourheads don't bother much with the internet and when they do they don't want to read a bunch of negative wannabes putting good folks down.
Pretty sure we've got quite a busload of old-school tourheads in these forums already. Equally sure that your two mods are quite on board with treating everyone fairly and respectfully, and doin' it in style. (We're Heads too, you know!) Feel free to call us on it if you find otherwise.
Are you kind? ...also, I hope folks refrain from negative attacks on band members who have given their entire lives to the community we call Deadheads. If u don't know them, or u weren't there, please be civil if u must gossip. Peace!
Sounds very good! I especially like that it's mentioned that folks ought to be respectful of one another. If this place is going to attract the right kind of people then that is extremely important. I hope the mods are on the ball with that one. A lot of old school tourheads don't bother much with the internet and when they do they don't want to read a bunch of negative wannabes putting good folks down. Also, I hope to see everyone treating each others fairly. Responding when people take the time to write something. Not forming cliques based on how many trades they have made or whatever...! Being open to everyone as everyone has something to offer if u take the time to check it out. Let's try to be open minded and us our heads when we speak. Life is more than what the latest tv show is programing u to be. Have fun folks, but let's go further so this can be a sustainable community. Thanks for all the folks who put so much hard work into this place!!! Are you kind?
