[Grief] OK gang - here we go

We now have a TG Live Live Journal home. It is located at :


For those of you who have not used this site before, here's a quick rundown 
of the main stuff :

1. Clicking the "user info" link will bring up the main account info page, 
with the little "manifesto" I have written. If anybody would like to make 
comments or suggestions about this, please feel free to let me know about 
them (though let's do that here, not there.) My goal is, as I have stated 
here previously, to keep what's there very focused on the topic at hand, and 
to not stray into other areas (which we can still discuss here.)

1a. To get back to the main journal page, just click the tglive link at the 
top of the info page.

2. You (or anybody) can comment simply by clicking the "leave comment" link 
at the bottom of the entry. I have started the ball rolling, and to give an 
idea of what it all looks like, by reposting my original first "review", and 
the three comments (pertaining to the recording) that have followed it.

2a. If there are already comments there, by going to those, and then 
choosing "reply to this", the subject (disc/concert) info will automatically 
show up in the subject header. Should you be the first one to leave a 
comment, it would be good to cut and paste the title header from the main 
entry (as I did for these first examples) just for continuity's sake. (My 
neatness/anal side, there - sorry.)  : >

3. The "archive" link is rather self-explanatory. It'll show you when posts 
have been made, and give you quick access to them. And as I mention on the 
info page, just because we've moved on to the next show/disc certainly 
doesn't mean the book is closed on the previous discussions either. I would 
like to think that all of the discussions can stay "alive" in some way, 
furthering the whole archive/resource aspect that some of us have expressed 
a desire to try to accomplish with this.

4. Basically, the reason you would need a password would be if you had a 
first review to post. If you want to do this, just e-mail for the pw, and 
then you can go to town. I am committed to this idea/project, and would be 
happy to be the one to initiate the discussion of each one, just to keep 
things simple - but I'm not trying to hog all the action, or anything like 
that. So - if you want a password, just e-mail me off list and let me know.

4. There appear to be 98 people who list TG as an interest of theirs on 
their profiles. Rather than go after them, though, I would rather let them 
find us. But if anybody knows people on there and wants to bring them in, by 
all means, do. Not trying to keep it exclusive - just want to make sure we 
try to keep it reasonable and organized.

5. On a similar note, if anybody else here has a LJ account and would like 
to add the tglive account to your friends list, go right ahead, and I will 
add you back as a friend on it.

All I can think of at the moment. Hope everybody likes it, and again, please 
feel free to let me know about any possible tweaks or suggestions you may 
have. It really is a simple system to use, I think. Let's see how it goes.


PS. - I'll go ahead and start the Winchester (or Air Gallery, take your 
picK) discussion sometime tomorrow or Sunday.
