I made the mistake of hitting "Recent" and reading the last Lightbulbs case we opened - I think we deserve a nice easy one, you know?
And of course this got me to go back and read the last one. As fraught as that felt, we handled it pretty well. More introspection, less contention.
I would still support DX doing this though:
Of course that doesn't mean I don't feel the urge to change my tagline to "I told you so!" :)
Like cilantro, facts have evolved.
"More than" twenty years! Unless you mean "over the span of twenty years."
Yeah, it shouldn't say "twenty years ago" since that will be wrong next year. How about ..."brought together in 1998 (or whatever year the TT thread started) by our shared love..."
"begun during the original airing of Buffy the Vampire Slayer"?
The more I look at "brought together" the more I think about newbies. By which I mean people who have only been here 15 years.
Okay, final wording since we have reached the three-day limit on conversation and need to get to voting.
Proposal: Update the "About Us" section and registration page to better represent who we are today, a close-knit community of friends, to set appropriate expectations for new members who may come to us seeking pure fandom.
Welcome to Buffistas.org. This site is the online home of the Buffistas, a worldwide community of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly fans.
Proposed new text:
