Well I've been a member for about 1 1/2 months, so I guess I count as n00b...but I looked around the site for about 4 months before that. And I pretty much understand/know almost everything.

So I'd love to adopt someone!

But ya know, If anyone wants to adopt me and keep me in a corner and feed me cookies and send me PMs and make me feel loved....go right ahead. :) I'd love it.

True, Kathy. I was just over in VIS and saw that post you made..how nice of you! Anyhow...are you the first person to adopt a n00b? (Well...a real n00b? I don't think I count...)

I don´t know if I´m the first. Two new members replied here, the second one is "mine".
I simply tried to answer all his questions and looked for someone to help out where I couldn´t help (and found this person in smilin_oranges).

Thank you to everybody who has volunteered to help! You all know that this won't work without your help, and you're all great!

I'll do my best to match people with like-minded dancers, but it may be tough. When you volunteer to help, or if you're new looking to be adopted, just mention what type of dance you take and I'll see what I can do.

One way of 'reaching out' to newbies is advertising in your siggy:

I've been here since 2001 (on my old account), so I'd be more than happy to help out :)

While I don't dance currently, I've done ballet, jazz, modern, tap, irish and drama. I am a music nut, and self confessed cam-whore :D

I'll take all the weird ones. I like weird ones. *laughs evilly*

random idea:
Why don´t we send PMs to each member who starts a thread in this board?
I notice that not many new members say they´d like to be adopted in this thread, but we have tons of older members who would like to help. But if we would send PMs to each new member who writes in the whole board, we would have more.
I have my adopted member now, but lots of you have no one yet.

Can i pretend to be a newbie? I wanna be adopted by an oldie :( No fair....or i guess i could just be an adopter, though there's zillions of people saying that and no newbies for them.

Hmmmm...maybe blackmail will work....

Kathy, that is a MARVELOUS idea, and I think that's what we should do!

So, if a newbie writes a post in the welcome board, send them a PM about this post. And then we'll hook them up with an adoptive 'parent'. Or, what may be easier, is just post right in their welcome post, and include a link or this thread.

I've actually done that to a few posts already, and I'm trying to use my siggy in all my posts.

Please, tell me the truth you guys, is it selfish to ask for this to be a sticky? That way it won't get bumped down and buried.
