So this is where the cool kids hang out now that SLAM is dead but not really dead?
SLAM appears to be back up for now. I'm all up for giving this place a solid shot though.
First, we love SLAM and understand if you want to return. However, we'd love to have you stay. The truth is this forum needs a lot of work. It's unattractive and not all that user-friendly at the moment. This is going to change soon. We're approaching our first-year anniversary at the end of January, and we plan to celebrate with the site's version 2.0. This will include a major upgrade of the forum's presentation and usability. To do a good job, we need your help. Tell us what you want from the forum, including what features you'd like to see, however minor. We'll do our best to accommodate and to make this forum a place where anyone in the state (or with any Nebraska-music tie at all) can interact with a digital community. Until then, thanks for your patience and we hope you'll stick with us. — Andrew Norman
