Can I adjust something so I don't have to read your comments?

    To be fair, I always appreciated the ability to digest an entire piece of news from a post on the homepage without needing to backread an entire thread to aggregate disparate bits of info myself. It's the difference between collecting breadcrumbs (often colored by inflammatory user opinion) vs the whole loaf of bread. I dunno, I just think there's something to be said about accommodating more than one type of user experience.

    On another note, I'm someone who loves (and misses) the podcast. I like editorial work! And I know I'm not alone. There's a reason virtually every news publication out there has an Opinion section. I like to hear about this stuff from those select few who are both in the know, and who have a deep sense of the band's past to contextualize the news of present and future happenings.

    Just my two cents...

    I'm surprised someone hasn't plotted the distribution of home page activity over time to find a pattern in the Boyd matrix.

    I feel ya. I can't speak for Matt and Joe, but I'm guessing the front page drive by user just isn't someone they're interested in catering to anymore. I was that user for the first few years of the site, so again, I understand that POV. But again, that's just not the nature of message boards in 2021. See: Reddit.

    I enjoy the podcast as well. I know both of those guys (Joe much moreso than Matt) and it's a fun listen. I imagine it will come back when shows do.

    As I mentioned above, I used to when I was a new user/lurker. I'm on this site every day, but my bookmark takes me to the forums, not the home page, so I never see it unless it comes up in a thread like this.

    I'm sure he has Venmo. If you want to donate to the site though, you can join Ants+.

    Yeah honestly are Jake, Matt Yette, and Joe M just not DMB fans anymore? I feel that’s almost certainly the case now.

    I would say that's a safe assumption. Having seen them active much at all since Boyd's departure.

    Because they don't update the front page?
    They are certainly still DMB fans. They just don't post on the boards anymore, and haven't really since well before Boyd left. Well, Jake still posts, but pretty much only in +.

    Matt is aware of it, and I think is working on it.

    The one and only podcast I listened to from that bunch was so brutal. Can't believe they thought people would want to hear them bitch and moan for an hour.

    I really enjoyed the ants podcast. Great wealth of DMB knowledge and cool stories. I think Matt was just honest about his opinion about the current state of the band. Joe was pretty upbeat about most of the new sound.

    Joe goes to a ton of shows each year still. I see him a couple times per year - usually at SPAC. Most recently Vegas. He just doesn't post regularly anymore.

    Can't say I blame him. Forums are kind of an outdated method of communication at this point. Plus, the band doesn't exactly make the need to check into them something that needs to be done on a daily basis anymore.

    Yea, not sure you (TH) actually ever listened to one. Joe is borderline ballwasher. He's super positive.

    Ants podcast was always pretty entertaining.
    While they seem like nice guys, the Grey Street podcast is a tough listen. One of the dudes was not meant for podcasting, as heís incredibly boring to listen to. Very monotone and talks real slow.

I've volunteered to write before but never was taken up on the offer.

    It's not a big deal, but let's call a spade a spade - the reason the front page hasn't been updated is not because there hasn't been anything newsworthy.

    If the rescheduling of the entire 2020 tour isn't newsworthy, idk what is.
