What's up everybody? This is Gavin, your friendly neighborhood webmaster. The band is taking the day off, so I'm filling in.

Welcome to the new community. We're finally in Web 2.0 world! This means you get your own account. With this account you can rate and comment on the content, upload your own videos and photos, create your own blog (of which the best will be randomly featured), and start getting some fresh exclusive goodies you won't find anywhere else.

This is important. If you joined the mailing list or forum prior to 9/25/09, login with your e-mail address and request a new password. We will also be sending an introductory e-mail within the next 48 hours.

Regarding the archive:

I know it's been a trip waiting for the archival content to come back online, so we took the first step by presenting the complete R7 archive on this site. Back catalogue to come later... (Thanks to the band and crew for getting out there every night and providing the content :->)

About the tour:

I hit the Seattle shows and the tour has been picking up steam since! R7 are turning heads plus Ben sat in with Pearl Jam 3 nights in a row, including slide on "Red Mosquito" -- a first. Here's a photo I took from the show.

OK I've got a site to launch!


p.s. R7 on Austin City Limits, PBS next week plus R7 on the Jay Leno Show with special guest Oct 8.

Kudos for getting all this up and running. Can't wait for the back catalog archive stuff to be up. I wish there was a way to have everyone's original join date instead of just 9/25/09

There's also a bug I found: in the tour archive section when you click on a particular date, only the actual picture on the right loads the pictures for that show, the text above leads to a broken link

Thanks for doing all this, we all appreciate it. Are anything similar to the actual forums going to return? I've been browsing around and can't see a thread type feature here.

Thanks again Gavin.

Thanks again for all your hard work Gavin. I've been there since the beginning of this forum and hope to evolve with it going forward.

You are the man!
