Newbies Section?
« on: August 23, 2007, 10:50:57 pm »
Please excuse me if I'm in the wrong place, or if this has been posted before a hundred times, but I'm new here, from IMDB and wondered if there is a section for us newbies to introduce ourselves and meet some of the other residents.  In checking the membership list, I've already noticed some familiar friends from IMDB!

Welcome to our community!  I think you'll find we have a lot to offer the IMDb folks, and we don't have messages disappearing or trolls.

Thank you David! Thank you Phillip!  I've heard good things about this place over at IMDB, but being comfortable over there, I was hesitate to try it here.   It seems so big here with so many members and things to do and see.  I think I'll like it here, and I will check back in with the folks at IMDB occasionally as well.  I know some the members here are also at IMDB.  I'll see you all around!

Hi Dobie!!

Yes, there are MANY former IMDb members here! In fact, most of us were over on IMDb at some point in time. I posted there a couple of years ago, but left and joined Bettermost because of all the terrible troll problems they were having over there. I'm not sure how long you have been posting on IMDb but I was David-Indiana. We've had some recent members join us here from IMDb, so you are in very good company Dobie! Yes, Bettermost is big, but once you get used to it I think you will find it very easy to use and navigate! Be sure to pm me if you have any questions or concerns. To send me a pm, just click on my name, or on the blue circle in my profile! I am a moderator here, and I'll be happy to help you. If you look at the bottom of the home page, you will see a list of people who are currently logged on the forum. Moderators appear in red, but anyone here will be happy to help.  :D

Welcome to Bettermost!  :)

Hi David, 
I've been here now for about 3 months and really like it.  You are right, everyone is very friendly, courteous and respectful.   I do remember you from IMDB as David-Indiana.  I got a message that you moved this topic.  Why was it moved?  Was it getting too big?
