Me, too. In the interim, could the Raven have a Welcome Page? A place where the neophytes would have a place to introduce themselves rather than us stumbling upon them in the threads? I know that when I first joined (Back when Aaron H was still an Indyfan...congrats on the promotion, by the way...) it got a little intimidating. Maybe a whole forum dedicated to initiating the uninitiated? Just a thought...

sitting in the lotus position

coming across a new member in a random thread, is like finding a pebble in your shoe as you walk.

upon finding it, a true raven realizes that though even though the pebble goes unnoticed on the road, it impacts the foot more preciously.

Dude, that is deep. (Funky psychedelic lights, sitar strains in the background, Venture devours his seventh Twinkie.)

I used to be a moderator for about a year and a half, then I was put on leave, then I came back for more abuse...errr...I mean work.

So I take it you all want to see a "Read This First" thread for newbies. Am I right?

That wouldn't be a bad idea.I only joined in Oct of this year.I did find it a little intimidating at first. In fact I've only recently gotten comfortable posting on a more regular basis.

I'v seen other message board with similar features. I would say, it's not really that they aren't on the Raven, it's just that they are, shall we say, somewhat hidden, like a good bottle of scotch or someone's mummy. Maybe a more definitive map with an "X-marks the spot" feature and boldly defined Search buttons could help all navigate more efficiently in this site, ya dig...

Sounds like a good idea for The Raven Bar 2.0.

I wouldn't say joining in is too difficult. I started posting around September or October or so, and I didn't find it all that intimidating.

Cheers,

Newbies... the OTHER white meat.

Hey, wait! You just said I was still a newbie!! But seriously, there were things I learned by trial and error, and consolidated help would have eased the early frustration. (Of course, I was also completely unfamiliar with the Internet then as well...)

Ok this is kinda crazy..? lol

I'm the OP of this thread. I posted this, what? 8 years ago? 9 hahah.
I honestly just completely forgot about this forum.

I even forgot about my screen name DcDisturbed947.

For some reason, today while work was slow, I decided to google DcDisturbed947 to see what comes up, and the 2nd result was this page. Wondering what the heck Raven is, I checked it out, and here I am hahah

But, to answer one of the questions... I have been an Indy fan ever since I was about 8 years old
I am 27 (it's crazy to think I was 19 or so when I first posted this thread hahah), and Indy is still my all time movie hero.

But anyways, how's everyone. Are the same regulars who posted here still around?

Wow. Long time, no see. Guess your third post will be in - what - 2020? You'll be able to talk about Indiana Jones VI.
