BDT Newsletter, February 2009

Greetings from Bebo Dream Team, and all the staff. This is issue 2 of our monthly newsletter. I hope that you liked issue 1, and found it informative.

Lots has happened in the last month, and BDT continues to grow steadily. We have replaced our forum markers on the default skin, with a new custom set, and they look perfect.

Our member count has taken a sharp rise in the last month, and we now have a total of 271 members. This puts us on target to reach 300 members by 1st March. Not too bad for a board that only opened on the 26th November.

B.D.T also now has a new co-owner. Bree who is an admin here, has put so much effort and time into trying to make our board even better, and going well beyond what any other staff member ever would. So I offered her joint ownership, which she accepted. This brings a new level of stability to the running and up-keep of what is turning out to be great community.

We have a few other staff changes also. 'Star' has become our new Service Manager after a short spell as a global mod. Star has had plenty of experience on advertising boards, and many of you will know her already.

The second new staff member is 'Nick'. Nick will be working on the Services Team, doing board reviews and post packages. I'm sure that Nick will turn out to be a great addition to the team.

I'm sure that most of you have heard of Twitter Well, to give you all yet another way to keep up with the latest news at B.D.T, we can now be found on our own Twitter page here: https://twitter.com/bebodreamteam

We hope you enjoy our newsletter, and feel free to make suggestions on how we can develope our newsletter further.


New 'Signature Ads' Service

This service gives you the opportunity to get your link placed in the signatures of all our staff. Each link stays there for a week at a time. As with the majority of our services, you don't require any post count to use it.


Our 1st 'Forum of the Month' competition went down well, and the winner was Gordie, from FreeAds, who is now the proud owner of the domain name:


Our referral contest is still in progess, and ends on the 28th February. It's a close race so far and could go right to the wire.

Design Contest

As most of you will know, B.D.T has now launched its own hosting service. We are in need of some promo buttons and banners to help us advertise our hosting more effectively. Our own design team are going to design some for us, but I'm also going to give you guys the opportunity to contribute and win a domain name of your choice.

For more info go here:


That's it, good luck!

  1. Hey neat! I've always wanted to keep a chicken or two... Of course it's probably a lot more work than my romantic vision of it. ;) But fancy chickens are so neat looking! Some are very pretty, and some are funny. Some barely look like chickens!
