I joined too. I'm a little thrown off by how the forum is set up. I can see how having new posts show up at the top of a thread, not at the bottom, is useful for regular, currently active users, but when you're sifting through old threads from the past few years to absorb dulcimer knowledge, there's a lot of extra scrolling involved. There's a ton of useful information on that forum, though, and folks there seem wonderful. It's probably the dulcimer equivalent to the UU forum and the Banjo Hangout.
