congratulations on this attractive new bulletin board for dancers.
please don't think this is a rude question, because really it is just naive (probably!): i wonder if you could tell me why your board looks almost identical to (the very good) Ballet Talk bulletin board at http://www.balletalert.com?
i assume the answer has to do with something like using the same software? if so, could you divulge what the software is - it is very clean-looking, functional and explanatory.
Thankyou, and good luck with this site - grace.
p.s the 'a' is missing out of 'message' in your header -sorry for noticing!
It would be nice if the Administrator described him/herself and the organization behind this bulletin board, so that we can be assured that it's not some evil plot to catalog all the dance fans of the world.
Thanks for introducing yourself. I have a habit of taking risks and already registered myself before your post.
I think this website is a great idea. I am not a dancer per se but I was talking to a dancer friend this morning and we agreed that we needed a bulletin board for dancers. And, lo and behold, yours popped up. Thanks.
Ok, I'll introduce myself. My name is Jnoathan Atkinson, and my partner in dance and in business is Melissa Winogrand. We are both ballroom dance teachers and competitors, and we now run two websites: Ballrooomdancers.com and DanceTalk.com.
DanceTalk was originally conceived as the message board for Ballroomdancers.com, but we realized that we could get much more activity and discussion if we involved other websites. So we've decided to make this a community board.
You may see me post messages as Waltz123, Administrator, or BDC Webmaster. I choose my handle based on the nature of the post. If I'm answering questions about DanceTalk, I'll pst as Administrator. If I'm answering questions in the BDC forum, I'll answer as webmaster for that site. If I'm just participating in the discussion as a user, I'll use my personal handle, Waltz123.
The registration process is something that came with the software that powers this message board. As you can see, I've configured it to accept non-members, so you don't need to register if it makes you nervous to submit your email address. But if it makes you feel more secure, I have no intention of using the email addresses for any other purpose than contacting a member when necessary.
I hope that helps. I'll probably put our bio up on both websites sometime soon. I've been told that it is a good idea by others, too.
Sincerely, Jonathan Atkinson DanceTalk Administrator
