    Sales tax is not being added for orders from Alabama. This may be why myself and others can’t order anything from the store.

    Can’t order Here Comes Sunshine 17 cd box set

    I don't know if anyone from dead.net reads these but this website will not let me order the new boxset. I have tried as a guest and it doesn't take my order. I have tried using safari, chrome, and edge on a pc, MacBook, and iPhone with no luck. I have also used 3 different credit cards and PayPal and dead.net still will not take my order. I have ordered Dave's Picks and other boxsets in the past and I have never had an issue. Please take my money, I would like to order this!

    The date is wrong. Says 10-14-84 and the answer was 10-15-84 according to all sources and comments. I saw it by going to previous days, click 13th, and incorrect answer and only a ' where the winners name should be.
    Thanks again for your prompt attention.

    Has a malfunction this AM. Not showing yesterday's answer/winner but the day before instead.
    That app always seems to have glitches depending on how you access it. Different results if coming from the 30 day tab on home page vs. from the comments section at bottom of home page. But that is doable either way if you just poke around. Thanks Marye

...for a 'report spam' button. It's a really good one and should be implemented. Don't be surprised if some unforeseen leak in the dike would spring forth as a result of that however. This site reminds me a little of a Rube Goldberg contraption sometimes. tehehehehe. Lots of love, folks. Have a grateful day.

When a new feature is introduced in a forum like this, there's always going to be someone who tries to exploit it, so my guess is that there would be some blowback from a "Report Spam" button; it's almost too easy to imagine that some might find a thing like that to be useful in a flame war, for example.

What's the use of having a 'View All Recent Posts' button if they don't show all recent posts? The recent posts are not displaying (at least on my machines) for the latest installment of the Taper's section. In addition, I've been posting to the orphaned Taper's Section entries that are floating around somewhere in Dead.net space (everywhere but where they should be of course (in the rundown with the other entries in the TS) so that maybe others can possibly locate them. These posts are not appearing in 'All Recent Posts'. Of course, this problem doesn't amount to a hill of beans for everything else that's fubared around here. Is it time for a complete overhaul of the site? Every time I think I've seen quite possibly the last unworking link or crazy problem, another one crops up. I bet I'm not the only one that's frustrated. That said, this site is better than nothing (although I like it better as it was last year) and I try my best not to look a gift horse in the teeth. It's just becoming a comedy of errors though.

I get a message that reads HTTP 500 Internal Server Error when I try to read new posts for the forum topics 'Got Questions Ask Here' and 'Technical Problems - Forums, Features, etc.' Other details read: Most likely causes: •The website is under maintenance. •The website has a programming error What you can try: Refresh the page. Go back to the previous page. More information This error (HTTP 500 Internal Server Error) means that the website you are visiting had a server problem which prevented the webpage from displaying. Is anyone else getting that, too? Sometimes with this topic, I can't view new posts from the 'All Recent Posts' button. I have to go to forums, then the topic to view new entries. I can't view the 'Got Questions, Ask Here' thread at all. It'd be interesting to know the technical reasons behind these bugs, as I am quite fascinated by computers and coding (not that I have much exerience with it).

as to the second problem, I'm not getting it, so it's hard to say. You may be getting it when something is resetting. In general, the View All Recent Posts does not refer to your account specifically, whereas the My Recent Posts, generally speaking, does. The All Recent Posts seems to be for the convenience of random souls checking in from remote corners of the net. If you're logged in, you will be much better served by the My Recent Posts link, or the Recent Posts shown under your account on the left. Hope this helps.

what would be likeliest to produce what you're describing is that you've somehow got the comments sorted Oldest First when you used to have them Newest First? Other than that, there have certainly been isolated instances of weirdness, but nothing consistent.

Since I can't load the 'Got Questions, Ask Here' forum on any computer, and I've tried on five (only when I'm logged in, when I'm logged out works fine but can't post messages then) I'm going to ask here: Does Phil's bass sound on Dick's Picks 25 Disc 1, Good Lovin' remind anyone else of bouncing tennis balls? I think that's what it reminds me of, in a good way of course.

some of the glaring issues have been fixed. In particularly, we THINK you can now upload a fan photo (at least, a .gif or .jpg of reasonable size) without having it make your avatar go crazy. We invite a few intrepid souls to give it a try, anyway. The chat room is still broken though, yes.

I've been trying to submit new topic threads but have been unsuccessful. How does one go about doing that, anyway? I tried clicking "Submit content," but I have neither a Europe '72 Tour Photo nor a Fan Photo to share.

It's set up that way to avert chaos, basically. (To say nothing of spammers running amok as they are wont to do.) If there's a topic you think we should be talking about and aren't, either post in the What Else Should We Be Talking About thread or send me a PM. A whole lot of topics got started that way... Thanks!

WRT the Rolling Stones vine, I'm going to have to restart it from scratch due to convoluted issues. The people who have signed up for it will probably have to reconfigure the list.

Thanks for the track tip, wilfredtjones; I was getting tired of scrolling through the whole list to find my stuff. But here's a new problem for you, marye: when I click on My Account at the top of the page, it takes me to a search page. I need to click on my name in a post to get to my account.

was that I fired up a different browser, went to dead.net and logged in, logged out, copied the url of the login page, and pasted it into the original browser. Worked like a champ and I haven't had the issue since. Whether it will work for you I dunno, but I've also asked the tech guys if they have more reliable info than my blundering around.

...and any guesses why the only image available on the show description pages is one of the Summer Tour 1995 poster? Seems like they're just putting lipstick on the pig with the recent changes. Not really fixing the underlying problems, just fancying it up a little...might as well (I guess).

Here's a few: • the Last Post link at the top of the page is not acutally a link. It looks like one, but there seems to be no action associated with it. (Edit: I checked the source code of that section, and there is code for a link, but that's not how it's playing on the rendered page; I'm guessing something runs afoul prior to those lines, which leaves this section's code invalid.) • Cookies don't seem to be working properly. It seems like I have to log on to the site every time I visit it, but even then, it's not clear if I'm logged in or not. Here's an example. When I first hit the site this morning, there was a message that I had a message; I clicked the link and was taken to the message. I typed my response and then hit Send Message, which took me to a login screen. I logged in at that point (didn't we used to have a "Remember Me" checkbox?), and was then taken to the home page, but the response to the message that I had typed was gone. • It's a small thing, but the Preview function for posts doesn't render/display in the same way as the actual post; the subject line is regular text, as opposed to the fancy style that I've quickly become a fan of. And here's my system info if the techies ask: Firefox 14.0.1 running on Kubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. Thanks.
