Welcome dear BBers, here is the latest hot issue of the BB Newsletter and all the goings on, so what's new around here? Keep on reading...

Are you new to BB and reading the newsletter for the very first time? If you are, its good to have you! This here newsletter is here to keep all of you informed about what's going on at BB with the board itself, as well as helping you get to know some of your new board mates!

If you enjoyed the read, which we know you will, then please pop on over to our Newsletter Feedback thread and tell us what you thought and see the Buffy Boards News Archive for all the past issues if you'd like to have a catch up!

New Members​
On behalf of all our staff and members, we would like to extend another huge "˜Welcome!' to all those who have joined our community since our last issue. It's really great to have you and we're hope you're getting comfy settling in!


For those of you who may still be feeling a little overwhelmed, there a few things that can help you out. First, be sure to check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) which provides you with lots of information about our rules, as well as giving you a helping hand if you run into any problems.

After browsing through that, there are a few other useful stops you may wish to check out:

*Bad Eggs: We all need a little help from time to time, so who best to help you than your very own personal guide to BB? Get yourself adopted by an existing member and they will show you the ropes, answer any questions and generally take care of you as you settle in. Pop into the forum Bad Eggs and start a thread asking for someone to adopt you and someone will snap you up!

*The Sorting Tome: Pay a visit to the great and mysterious Sorting Tome and get sorted into one of our Dormitories! Once the Tome has posted of your fate, you will find yourself given access to a new part of the forum for you and your fellow dorm mates. It's a great way to meet members and get to know them in a smaller, cosier part of the board.

*Angel Investigations: If you still find yourself with unanswered questions after reading through the FAQ, then this is your next stop. Have a browse through the forum and see if other people have already asked your question and find your answer and if you still need to know something then start a thread in Angel Investigations and we will answer it ASAP.
Please also remember that we have a Confidential Member Concerns Area that you can post in if you would like to keep your enquiry private. Only you and the Board Staff will be able to view it.

Episode discussions!
You don't want to miss this! Current discussion is being led by member Jodast, see here;

and while we're at it we might wanna mention that sign ups for other discussions are up through September... now we know you have a topic you're just dying to get the people talking about. Don't miss the opportunity to lead a discussion here on the boards, go here to see what it's all about

A new Buffy... well, the new Buffy movie seems to be indefinitely on hold... but that doesn't mean that it will be forever. Therefore we're taking the time to ask you, loyal Buffy fans, who your dream Buffy would be? (If it's SMG or Kristy Swanson please let us know all the same :))

1.What actress do you think could play Buffy the Vampire Slayer?
2.Do you think a new Buffy should be blonde?
3.If you got to choose would you rather see a 'Buffy' movie without a new Buffy? (i.e. Seeing a new Slayer battling the forces of darkness perhaps with only a cameo from the iconic super Slayer?)

Please let us know what you think in the newsletter feedback thread, we're eager to hear it :)

"I broke the cardinal rule of don't fall in love with what you're doing, because the rug can get yanked out from underneath you, and when it did, I was heartbroken." - Nathan Fillion on the cancellation of Firefly.

"It's very Jehovah's Witness. I'm not sure if anyone's actually going door to door, but it's not far off." - Nathan Fillion on Firefly fans attempts to save the show

Quote of the Month

brinkster130 in "Did Willow have good intentions?"

I know this was a response to HisMrs but I just wanted to throw my two cents in ;)

I totally agree that it makes sense that the Scoobies would initially assume Buffy's soul was stuck in a hell dimension, however what I don't buy is that Willow would have continued to genuinely believe that for a long period of time.

Willow was smart and by that point would have had pretty good resources to research and find a way to determine if Buffy's soul was in fact in hell, yet we never saw her doing any thing like that. I mean, Willow didn't think through the plan enough to dig up Buffy's body so she wouldn't have to crawl out of the ground. By this point the Scoobies have seen time and time again that things are not always as they seem so I don't know why they would have accepted Buffy's fate without question.

Also, if her intentions were 100% good, then why did she keep what she was doing from every person who would have questioned and/or opposed her doing the spell? Giles, Dawn, Spike and Angel all loved Buffy and would have done whatever they could have to helped insure that her soul was at peace, yet she didn't feel the need to tell them? IMO, that tells me, that on some level she knew what she was doing wasn't right.

There must be hundreds upon thousands of posts made every month (maybe even every day) here on BB discussing anything you could care to imagine, and more! Each month, some posts jump out amongst the others, for being particularly well written or thought provoking, and here are our picks from the last couple of months:

Member Recognition
