We have 3 and 2 below. What is your #1 reason to love the new Zone? Let's see how many answers we can get here.

Mine is:

Old posters returning after the lifting of the Angelfire curse :capnjack: and brand new posters participating! :bounce:

I love the new Zone for the same reason mountain climbers climb mountains: because it's here. And because you're all here, and you're what makes it what it is.

Do I need to explain? I happened to be on vacation when the Zone switched from old to new, and was greeted upon my return by screens saying the boards were gone. No Pit. No Porch. No ONBC. It was horrible, absolutely horrible. I was ecstatic to learn (thanks again, DITHOT!) where everyone had gone.

So my #1 reason may not be everyone's #1, to me the emoticons, the dancing bananas (as fun as they are!), the avatars, etc., are just the icing on the cake. During my brief depprivation, I would have been happy with any Zone contact, even old-fashioned amber text on a black screen. What makes the Zone special is all of you. The posters, both old and new, as as DITHOT said, but also the moderators, and all of you who put such time and effort and thought into your posts. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

THANK YOU, Fansmom!

I think that's it--the fact that we are here. It's a pretty snazzy site. But what it boils down to is the Zone's greatest asset and my reason for being here is it's members. It's a great family to be a part of.

Except we have no more bananas. So I will have to bounce instead.
:bounce:

Fansmom, I think you have captured it! Our people make the Zone, old or new the best. But, I must admit, I do like to
:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :cool:

Does "all of the above" count as an answer for #1?

There is so much to love here! I think my favorite reason is that this site is so user friendly. From not having to fight with the evil Angelfire background to being able to view one long continuous thread of conversation to all the wonderful photos...... what's NOT to love!!!!

(PS I, too, am sad to no longer see the banana man!)

The one long continuous thread must be an absolute boon for our moderators, as it must radically reduce the time spent on sorting and storing for the archives. I know it may be a labour of love, but even so... anything that reduces workload gets my vote! :thumbsup:

Cool! I have just tried it for the first time and it's just disposed very neatly of the niggle I had about part of the page being missed off when I tried the other route. I had been meaning to ask about that and now I'm sorted. Cheers! :-)

Yes, we really hope you enjoy the printer-friendly button. For everyone who likes to save threads or print them out, it makes life so much easier. And much more economical.

With all the great writing that goes on around here, you must be tempted to save a lot.

Enjoy!

The only problem is that it doesn't work when you are in the ONBC board style mode. :tear:

The old one was much easier to manouver around. It had so many more thing, the calendar, tv listing, games, and soooo much more.

I do however love the avatars, and the emoticons, and the fact that we all have specific user names, now no one can pretend to be anybody else!

Really though, My #1 reason for loveing JDZ is that its the home of JDOCD, My first and only real disease!!!!!

Also, I have got to admit, that I absolutly loved the Bannanna man!

What ever happend to him? :disco:

I love the zone because of all the reasons listed but the number one reason is its my only link to knowing anything about Johnny! :drool: Its easy to use & everyone is helpful when you have a question. I can keep an update on new pics, new articles, new magazines to come. Discussing the books I read & sharing how it makes me feel.

How else can I support my JDOCD without my JDOCD friends!
