Post Positive ways MdN has affected you
In other words, are there any notable manners in which this website has proven to be of benefit to you personally?

I'll start by saying that in spite of not having been here for even 200 posts, I no longer feel as if I'm an ugly waste of space who women wouldn't touch with a six foot pole like I did previously...granted, I don't exactly think of my self as the epitome of handsomeness either, but it's an improvement damnit! :) :P

I really love how everyone showed their heartfelt support when I was going through the whole betrayal thing and my best friend's death.

People are really supportive here and I like that. It really is a community. Even the people I'm less than fond of are supportive of people when they're going through real stuff...

I find that, as a whole, when it matters- we come together.

I could write a book, but I'll try to keep it short.

First of all, without MdN, I wouldn't know a quarter as much about theatre as I do, I never would have been cast in Guys and Dolls, and I wouldn't be majoring in theatre right now.

Second of all, having a group of people who care about me but are removed from my real-life situation is psychologically invaluable. You can tell people who are in distant social groups things that you can't discuss with people immediately in your life, and I'm really not sure what I'd do without you guys.

This is really the one place where I can talk about theater and not be ashamed or scared of boring people like my family or non-theater friends.

And like others have said, the people here are SO supportive, and there is a lot of great audition advice/support/encouragement to be had, which is just wonderful. Plus, I have met some really amazing, incredible people that are just absolute joys to talk with. This is probably the most friendly and informative forum I've ever encountered.

I agree. Here I feel like I can truely be myself, as theatre is a part of me, and people won't think I'm weird for doing so :)

Even though I'm one of the youngest here, I feel really loved and accepted. And that means a lot.

Agreed! Being one of the youngest girls on here is super fun. And the fact that I feel accepted after rejoing at the begining of this year is great. :) It's so nice to have people to talk to who love theatre and are just as serious about it as you are. And everyone's just plain fun and supportive!

I became an instant fan of musical theater after seeing Mamma Mia!. So naturally I went to the internet to find out all I could. MDN has allowed me to interact with musical theater people from whom I've learned a lot. I've also had a chance to throw out my thoughts and ideas to test and better hone them. We all offer little bits and pieces of knowledge from which we come away knowing more.

I've probably learnt more about theatre here than i have at the theatre.

Also made loads of great friends. :mrgreen:

Learned a lot here, introduced me to some great shows and taught me theres more to musicals than being a mega uber wicked basher as i was a few years ago.

I generally just lurk about so i feel like i know you all more than you know me (jeepers i sound like a stalker :lol: ), but theres some awfully nice people here too.
