Yes, BBS stands for Bulletin Board System as Janna Heino said. It's a very popular word here in China. BBS has the totally same function with forum. We have various BBS (forums) in different fields, art, science, culture and so on. I guess it's Chinese English word~ joking

I actually found Ballet Alert! through the summer intensive surveys, since I was searching for information on a particular SI. Then I clicked on the link for ballet talk, and well, here I am!

SwanQueen, you found Ballet Alert! through the BA SI Survey?! That's wonderful to hear. I am so glad to know that the links that were set up worked to bring you to this board. From the number of posts you've got beneath your name, I'd have to guess that you're glad to have found your way to here, too. :)

I found my way here while doing a massive internet trawl to find adult classes when I wanted to return to class last year after a 15 year break. I lurked for ages, visiting 2 or 3 times a day, before I finally registered! I absolutely love it here, everyone is so nice and helpful, I've learned so much since I found it, 'virtually met' some fantastic people (and physically met one so far) and I still visit 2 or 3 times a day, and get withdrawal symptoms when I can't get the internet!

Alexandra and all the moderators, thank you so much - this is by far the best board around, no competition :) !

I've just noticed a new sticky that I thought I'd post on here - it explains the mission or purpose of Ballet Alert! and I figured that just maybe some might have missed it. :)

I discovered Ballet Alert when I was surfing the web for ballet related sites. I live in a small town in the midwest so I rely on all the posters reviews of performances around the world. Especially reviews of NYCB which is my favorite. It's the next best thing to being there. So a big THANK YOU to all of you reviewers out there and THANK YOU to Ballet Talk for providing such a fabulous forum for all ballet lovers.

I used to visit a group that I found by searching with Google ("ballet" and then clicking on "groups"). Then someone there mentioned that there were lot's of misinformation :blushing: (I think it was performance dates and that sort of info they were referring to) on Ballet Alert.

Of course I had to look it up as I was interested in everything that had to do with ballet. From Ballet Alert I found Ballet Talk! It turned out to be the best site ever! :thumbsup:

Through one night of browsing, using the search word "ballet" I do believe. I guess you could say I "gracefully stumbled" across it. :rolleyes: :dry:

I think I found it on one of my random ballet searches. I can't really remember now!! Regardless of how I found it, I'm SO happy that I did!! :unsure:

A few weeks ago, I was searching specifically for ballet-related message boards. I used to post at Danceart.com the last time I was taking ballet, in 1998, and I was glad to see it's still around, but not at all glad to see they were still not using any decent board software. I like the boards there, but some things about them drive me mad.

I'm glad to have found this place. :thumbsup:

Glad you found your way here too, Adrienne. Ballet Talk's software has gone through a number of incarnations since its birth...and, though I haven't been around since the beginning, I agree this board is set up very well. It makes a huge difference if you're really interested in finding things and following threads - the advanced search function is especially helpful. :unsure:
