hey dude, I remember you.

hey dude,

I remember you. the dead playing in China is total bullshit, Steve fromSingapore commented on how he knew about that tix agent, that just uses name acts to attract people to their site. I even emailed them to ask about it, but never got a reply. anyways, glad to see you here on this site, enjoy Africa!!!

safe travels, happy trails, and go where the climate suits your clothes, by the way, to pick up where all of us left off, go down to the Scene area, check out the spinners spinning free thread... we are all there.
peace,
CC Joe

Mali West Africa

Hello All,

Well i have been traveling over the last week or so and find myself on the Niger River Delta in Bamako Mali. I have also found that this forum has completely changed. Ok, it looks very cool but i have lost all the conversations and contacts that i once had. If anyone remembers me we were talking about the Dead playing in Shanghai, China. Since there are no Dead Heads in China except for myself and i rarely run into Dead Heads while i am traveling in Europe or Africa, so i was looking forward to hearing good music and meeting people who are actually tuned into the world. Anyway i look forward to picking up where we left off.

Makes sense!!!!!!

I like it...And let me just say Izz, that you and Marye are KICK ASS and are doing a great job.....Us cats from the old dead.net are just stuck in our ways and this new site will take some getting used to.....I think that the GOOD things on this site outweigh the bad by far....

Arena Seating Section

Greyfolded, I hear you - I really do. It is not within the current capacity of our open-source software to do that. It's as simple as that - even if we wanted to (and it seems like a fine idea to me!) we don't have to software tools to do it. I'm sorry. We're not actively trying to stymie anyone's creativity or freedoms here.

How about a topic that is topic-less? Just a space to post whatver you want and talk about whatever comes to mind. Would that help?

Special Section

Why not just have ONE special section where members who want or like to create topics can??? Im not saying make the whole site like that, just one section....Then those who like Free-Form topics can go there and those who don't can stay with the pre-made sections...We just want choices, thats all....And it sound's fair to have 1 section to create things and 20+ other sections that are preset topics.......

we don't need no stinkin' badges

MaryE and izzie aren't cops, or sheriffs, or den mothers or Evil Overlords of the Vast Conspiracy Against Free Speakin' Hippies. I promise.

We've been asked to help create a site that works for a wide swath of folks from different areas on the Net. There are people here who don't want users creating topics, and there are clearly a vocal group who do. As hard as is it on some folks, we're hearing from others who like it this way and would be less interested in staying if it went wooly with free-for-all topics.

We're trying to 'split the baby' here by doing what we (and the other admin types as we're not in this alone) think will work best. Your patience and understanding are appreciated!

And seriously - you want particular topics? So ask! (I would say, So tell! but that sounds like we'e automatically going to do anything you request, and you know that just can't be.)

Hey CC

Great to see ya over here on the new board!!!!!!!! I loved your posts on the old one and your insight helped a young Head a lot......THANK YOU!!!
I like the idea of having a special section where we can create topics like you said..Then people can pick and choose how they want to surf the board....I agree that a lot of posts on the old board got buried by the Rabbit's antics (Remember "Post a Pic of Yourself", it turned into a nightmare) but we seemed to be able to right the ship most of the time....

Im just happy to see all the people like you CC that made the old board so much fun are here!!

CC, short version...

Many insights in your post, and if I answered in detail we'd be here all day with not that much new information.

One of the things we're currently banging our heads against is that there seems to be little or no capability to have different rules (like topic starting, posts having to go through moderation, etc.) in different sections. What we're doing right now very much reflects those constraints.

And let's just say the ignore function (or, as it's called on the Well, the bozofilter) is very high on our feature request issue. For whatever reason, some people don't want to have to cross paths with some other people but are perfectly happy with the place otherwise (or so we've found, over and over), and the ignore tool is the perfect way to handle it. (The "neener neener I've got you on Ignore!" syndrome, not so much.)
