If you're joining us for the first time, we're delighted to see you! We invite you to just poke around and make yourselves at home.
A few possibilities:
-Tape trading (digital and otherwise)
- In Search Of (tickets! stuff! music! etc.!)
- The Ride Board (useful touring resource)
- All About My Band (the one you're playing in)
If you need a bit of navigational assistance, post here or send me (marye) a PM and we'll try to help!
Nice job!! bob t
How do I log out? I’m on an iPhone btw. Am I just old and in the way?
So grateful you're here. The new format feels good, clean, lots of bright. i like:)
But the new site is alright with me.
It seems like its easier to get to some of the "other" sections, but not as quick to get to the latest release thread. Which is okay, it might spread out the traffic a little. Those threads could get unwieldy very quickly.
I just wanted to see how replys get formatted.
Thx for the welcome and support marye.
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
My browser still says “Website Not Secure”
Glad some things never change.......
Did they remove the My Shows part of my account of the new redesign? If not, where would I find them now, & if so, whyyyyy???
Hello everyone, I'm new member.
and see you here or there.
Site looks nice, btw.
Are you all Dodgers fans or what?
Thx for getting back to me and good luck sorting it out! It was just nice to see them all listed there :)
1) Last night my password wouldn't work. to log in I had to request I new one (account info was remembered by the system).
To comment today I again had to request a new password after my new password wasn't recognized.
2) Wanted to post about this from IceCreamKid:
"After posting that last comment I was sent to page 6 of this message board. Why wasn’t I sent to the most recent post of this page?
And another... Those navigation numbers on the bottom of the page First......1,2,3......Last Put a copy of those on the top of the page too so that you don’t have to scroll to the bottom of the page just to move to another page."
That experience happened to me too (at first, thought my comment had not posted, then saw the page number) and his request is one I firmly second. If you have comments appearing newest first, scrolling to the bottom the page to change pages is annoying and there should be the same page list/links available above the comments as there is below.
Hope that my password problem goes away. Hope the vast fields of white do get filled in with something interesting but not distracting or obfuscatory.
The site did seem to need an overhaul. Hopefully, this overhaul will be beneficial. Thanks for trying, GDM crew.
(And when I posted this to the DaP page, I was bounced to page 6 again...)
Thanks Mary for all of your patience, help and therapy!!! I know websites must stay current with trends and technology. I like the general direction the new site seems to be heading in, but will wait for pats-on-the-back at this point. Here are some things I've noticed.
[Viewing Via Chrome (Version 69.0.3497.100) on MacBook Pro/High Sierra v. 10.13.6]
1. Dim the background or add cool, subtle background so the new site does not continue causing headaches and/or blindness.
2. Seems like every time you do anything, you have to re-take the reCaptcha exam. Is this necessary?
1. The personal message board takes a very long time to download compared to other locations on the new site..
2. There is no “PM member” button with poster’s avatar/comment, or on their member info page, or anywhere else I can see.
3. Doesn't look like you can "Preview" messages created on .../private_messages/ before sending. I'm only seeing a "Save" button.
4. PM’s seem to get posted to the wrong “Subject” thread, even if you re-enter the intended subject in the subject field. (Maybe they go to the first thread between the participants… or maybe by alphabet?)
1. Indicate newly posted comments with “NEW”. This was a very helpful feature in the website’s previous incarnation.
2. Allow more comments per page - previously you could select how many comments were displayed per page.
Thanks again for the therapy!
The drop down menu next to the avatar does not appear when using an iPad.
Thanks for spending your Sunday doing IT work.
For the third day my password needed resetting to get me in.
The request email to reset password system works GREAT. Sends message instantly and the process is painless, but annoying. All in all, this is NOT a terrible problem for me and quite manageable.
Am logging in via a macBook, OS10.6.8 using FireFox 48.02. Did not have this problem before the site upgrade.
My avatar pic and account info all survived the upgrade fine and the password reset system leads me straight to my account. It is just the log in password recognition that has gone hinky.
My password choices are registered as "weak" by the evaluation system, but the "changes (are) recorded".
Looks like my account is intact. Are discussions about new product on the product order pages now gone permanantly?
I've been poking around...in the show archive section, if you key in a year, the screen returns with shows from that year. but if you try to page forward in the event the show you're looking for is not on the first page, the screen reverts back to 1965 shows. It didn't happen each time, but something like 4 out of 5 times this happened.
Searching by venue didn't seem to work at all.
EDIT: seems to be corrected now...thanks
also...your GOTCHA is incredibly aggressive
I'm with those that say the new site sucks! I definitely don't like the white background, and in my opinion the text is too small. Or are you throwing us older Heads in the trash?
Been trying to Edit my account picture, but will not save .... site needs a bit more work
This is an improvement? Don't fix what ain't broke………….
The old site was tired. :)
Every time I try and login it doesn't work. I have to reset my password every time. I have to go into the link in my email. Why won't it remember my password? I've tried on my phone and computer. It does the same thing on both.
Can you listen to archived Grateful Dead Hours?
Where do you find a Dave's pick where you can go to that particular pick and see Dave's chat, Music samples, and peoples comments. Then you click on it in the store and it just says sold out.
Great to see you back online. Looking forward to exploring the new features and links. Much love and peace to all of you at Dead.net. Keep the fires burning. - PK
Will have to work on figuring out how to navigate! Nice to be here though and know the community is still alive and well.
What's the deal? I would like to change mine from the one I've been "assigned". Help!
hahaha. Yup but now looking cool
I prefer the other site.
The search function does not work and you have to go page by page through all the years beginning with the first show to get to the one you're looking for. Is this still being worked on?
Please bring 'Shows by Year' back! And on another note, please up the number of comments viewable per page. 9-12 comments at a time just does not cut it when some threads are populated with hundreds of comments.
4 days and counting....
I like the new design
Is there a 2018 November 30 days of Grateful Dead this year?
Hoping we will see 30 Days of Dead 2018? Any chance we can get to the 2017 archive too?? I appear to have lost most of 2017 in a computer mishap...thanks!
Dave Davis has one going somewhere. I will follow up on it for you unless someone beats me to the punch. Watch this space...
