Re: A request for automatically saved drafts or data loss due to navigation warnings

I have some big ideas for how this could become relevant again. I think the changes need to start at an information architecture-level though. I'm hopeful the new CTO will not only patch ongoing problems, like ticketing, but take a deep dive into the state of Burning Man on the internet.

The Listener - Interactive Art for 2020

We're planning to build on our artistic work, "The Listener" for Burning Man 2020. I'll use this thread to share updates on its progress. I went from clueless beginnings to exceeding my hopes building art for 2019. Most recently our group, Skylark Collective, shared The Listener with the city of Por...

A request for automatically saved drafts or data loss due to navigation warnings

I just authored a post and lost 100% of it from a simple link click and back navigation in a preview of the post. The forum should automatically save drafts. Forum software does this now. And it is a reasonable expectation of web sites in general that form data is not cleared from simple navigation,...

Re: Many Opens, and most Post attempts, fail

I don’t get the sense eplaya gets a lot of technical support.

The very first thing it could use is basic anti-spam, followed by research and solutions around resource issues.

Re: Bike Parts to Bring

You can bring parts, and at least replacement tubes is good. However, the best thing you could probably do is take your bike in for a bottom bracket service from a local bike shop now. It is worth calling around and asking for pricing on the bottom bracket service of a cruiser. It shouldn’t be too m...

Unless you’re prepared to get pretty busy learning how to operate a shade, you may struggle to get one figured out in time.
