This was a great idea for a thread, Kusa! I've got a little time this morning and I thought I'd direct newer members to some of the discussions that come up on a fairly regular basis...
Welcome New Members
The first thread I want to mention is the "Welcome All New Members" thread. This is a great place to drop in and introduce yourself to the community, and a way for us to make sure that we "regulars" have had an opportunity to welcome you to the forum. Many of us introduced ourselves over there, so if you are so inclined you can always backtrack through the posts and get to know us in turn.
Guidelines/About the Moderators:
NatashaFatale, JennaV, and PhilippaConnors are the volunteer moderators of the BN forum. We took on these duties this past June at the request of USA_Admin. Our primary duties are to delete spam, move and/or merge duplicate threads, and assist with any other issues that might come up. We strive to make the forum as easy to navigate and as welcoming as possible for all members, new and long-term alike. Consult the "guidelines" thread for additional information about this community and USA Network's and this forum's policies. We hope you have a wonderful time sharing our love for Burn Notice!
Updated by Natasha: It is with great sadness to let everyone know that our dear friend, BN forum member and fellow moderator, PhilippaConnors, passed away Jan.7, 2013. Please join us in remembering her here:
In Memory of Philippa Connors - A Tribute
Technical Questions / tips on how to use the forum
This thread is dedicated to answering any questions members might have about how to post, how to quote other members' posts, how to include pictures in a post, how to add avatars and signature files, and so on. Thank you, NatashaFatale, for getting this set up for the community! Also, sometimes there are technical forum glitches out of our control, like if you have log in problems & such, please notify a moderator, or you can post in this thread Board Issues, Part 80
Spoilers are basically posts that indicate plot points of an episode that hasn't yet aired. Because many of us love to learn tidbits about upcoming episodes (including yours truly) we decided it would be helpful if we had an Official Spoiler Thread. It's great because you can speak freely about anything relating to upcoming episodes over there! If you are discussing something that hasn't yet aired on another thread, it's helpful to "hide" your post within spoiler brackets, mainly as a courtesy to those members who do not wish to know about story-lines ahead of time. The spoiler tags can be found when composing your message - in your post, click on the "Special BBC Code" box (next to font) & select Spoiler, then enter your text you want hidden in spoiler tags.
In all threads outside of the Official Spoiler Thread, please remember to be careful about mentioning content that refers to future episodes, including: *promos (including the promo for this week's upcoming epi, and for next week's epi), *interviews, *other people's spoiler tags, etc. When in doubt, why not spoiler tag it. The difference being, "OMG! So excited to see Maddie next week!" (no spoiler) vs "OMG! So excited to see Maddie sink a submarine with Virgil next week!" (spoiler).
Once the episode airs, info is no longer considered a spoiler (but the content of the promo at the end of the show for the next week is).
Burn Notice episode guides
All Burn Notice episode reference guides on all matters of the show (links to episode discussions, a handy dandy chart for info on each episode's guest stars, directors, writers, clients and villains of each episode, and lots of other info) can be found via this link on the forum.]
