Welcome, Beth!!! Nice to have you "on board" with us!! And just so you know, there is no weather nor any peso exchange available in Playa. It is totally void of both.

I like it. Being a fairly new person here, I can see where just reading the announcement in this forum would have helped me get a smoother start.

An area just for Peep Meet listings is (in my opinion) totally necessary. Sometimes there are so many that most of the first page of the General Topic section is only about Peep Meets!

But whadda I know?

Great idea, or maybe have them posted on the calendar.

Great idea! And I second or third or whatever about the idea for the trip reports and peep meets. It would make them so much easier to find and understand!

An area for introductions seems like a nice way to gently get people to participate. It almost seems to me to have a forum dedicated to introductions is a way to cull them out of the general forum.

Maybe it could be more general and therefore useful? Like "New to Playa?" with the faq's, introductions, maps and such as stickies (well, not the introductions, obviously). It might also be a forum that is specifically gentle to new users, perhaps a 'there are no dumb questions here' rule? (I know, I know, it's really hard to hear the same darn questions over and over...)

Personally, I'd find some of the other forums that people have suggested to be more useful: trip reports and hot deals.
