Added about 70 new "old" flyers to the Timeline along with misc. updates and removed the "Forum" due to lack of posts and incredible amount of spam. We suggest you check out the Rapid City 1980's - 1990's Punk Rock Scene Facebook Page for a more lively discussion.
Cleaned up and formatted a few band pages and added photos to the The_Skasmonauts.
Added "See Also" link to each band's page to provide an area to link to related bands. Thanks to J. Waylon Porcupine for the suggestion.
Thanks to everyone who has created an account and updated the site. I'm sure there's a bunch of stuff that I've missed, so if you have any questions on how to make an account, just send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and I can walk you through it.
Welcome to the new and improved Rapid City Punk Rock Archive! After months of work we are proud to introduce the new format for the archive. As you will see, some major things have changed.
First, everything is a Wiki page now, so anyone can create an account and start editing or adding. Second, there's a brand new bulletin board for people to use, so please register and start using it. Third, I pulled all the miscellaneous pictures out of the photo database and stuck them on Flickr in a "Group Pool" so if anyone wants to add a photo, they can easily upload it to their Flickr account and throw it in the pool. There's also an RSS feed so if someone does drop something new in, the picture shows up in your aggregator! Also, anything tagged on Flickr w/"Rapid City Punk Rock Archive" or "RCPRA" can also easily be dropped in the pool. All of the photos of bands have been included on the individual band page. Fourth, there are now "Band Pages" where you can find all the information about the band in one handy place. Fifth, any information collected for a particular show (photos, flyers, videos, audio) can now be found by date on the "Timeline" page (or you can search site-wide for it using the search bar located above). Sixth, there is a woefully incomplete "Zines" section. We need some serious help on that section. And lastly, I was as meticulous as possible when putting anything up here. I tried to research dates as much as possible, all MP3s are tagged, all pictures are tagged, songs are put under their correct release info, etc. There's probably a few mistakes in there, but overall, it should be pretty damn accurate.
Hopefully this site will be constantly updated and when it is, we will post the changes here. You can subscribe to this page's RSS feed to keep track of all the latest news.
So have at it...
