Ease of use - Forum is easy to navigate and is pleasant to the eyes

Members - Knowledgeable and Friendly

Moderators - They do a good job of keeping a pleasant atmosphere.

Searchable Forum- I don't always like to ask question after question. Sometimes I just search the archives. The posts go back several years which means I can easily get different perspectives on the same problem.

What a great thread, Deb! I have to say with some sheepishness that honestly I'm sort of addicted to TB!
And why wouldn't I be when there are so many great pictures of adorable budgies, funny stories, and awesome people to hang out with? Talk Budgies isn't just a website, it's a community, and a place where everyone is included and can find valuable advice with their budgies.
I joined two years earlier than I appeared on here for real because I wanted to lurk around and see all the great threads that came on here. Finally, I decided to declare myself and I haven't left since!
Much love from me and Mallorn!

TB is now part of my waking up routine. Let me rephrase that: TB is the first place I go when I wake up. I am addicted? Oh yes!

This thread was the one of the first I saw this morning. As I started reading Deborah's post, I also noticed how late it was, so I jumped out of bed and left it at that. Between breakfast, lunch (and dinner) preparations, the drive to school and help in the classroom, it's past midday now.

I haven't yet read anyone's replies. I avoided doing so on purpose so that my own wouldn't be influenced. So here goes:

I came to TB first when our family was trying to make a decision about adopting our first bird, following a very unfortunate incident described here. It is this forum that completely won me over to getting a budgie. After reading through most of the stickies and some of the threads, I felt very secure that, even though we had zero experience with birds, we'd be able to get all the help and support we needed here.

The information I keep finding here is priceless. I am able to approach Clouds' settling in with a serenity that I would never have found (or be able to maintain) without the kind, supporting, accepting and experienced advice I is given here.

Gosh do I wish there had been a "Talk Babies" when my son was born

But experience is not all. This community could very well be extremely knowledgeable, yet remain cliquey, judgemental or generally unpleasant. I think it goes to the moderators' credit that the beautiful tone of this forum is maintained and that everyone feels not just welcome but accepted.

I am really enjoying discovering the personalities of the regular members, observing friendships being formed in every direction. I also love being able to get to know all these amazing little birds that make the TB flock. It's as close as it gets to having lots and lots of birds, isn't it? (I am already secretly plotting the adoption our second budgie at Christmas but would never be able to wait that long if I didn't get so much 'bird satisfaction' everyday )

It is not often that such chemistry occurs where a whole amounts to more than the sum of its parts. Long may it last!

I've said my bit so now I can't wait to read what everyone else wrote

I just wanted to say I thoroughly enjoyed reading each and every one of these wonderful insights.
TB is indeed a daily ritual for myself, As a member I can not thank past, present and future members enough for all the help and valuable information I have come across. As a moderator I love how members are so obliging and wonderfully accepting of Forum rules and Guidelines. It truly is a well oiled machine that takes a fair bit of love, passion , common sense and kindness to maintain the exceptional level of happiness that is here at TB . Long may we all be part of this Ultimate Forum TB.

I joined when I got Mink, because I wanted to be part of a friendly community of fellow budgie lovers who know exactly why I love these cute little things You guys just "get it". Tons of great information here too!

I love my parrots, and the forums are great, but I feel that not as many people there really care about the smaller birds like budgies. When I want to talk specifically about my budgies, not as many people get as excited, as when someone mentions a new Macaw or something. It leaves me feeling like saying "Hey people, don't you care about my BUDGIES too?? Aren't my BUDGIES cute?? Don't you just love hearing about my BUDGIES?? Look everyone I got a new BUDGIE!!!!!" Lol So.... I joined a forum just for BUDGIES with lots of other people who love BUDGIES too!
