Want to join Whedonesque? You can. Sign up is open for the next few days. Happy Christmas!

Best Christmas present so far, thank you :)
Yay! Thank you!!!
Been reading this site for 4 years and a fan of Joss's work for much longer. Thanks so much for opening up membership! Hi :)
Thank you, Whedonesque! Merry Christmas to all.
What a wonderful gift! Good to finally be here officially.
Welcome, new people!
Hey, b!x, I was listening to an old Nerdist podcast, and Chris Hardwick totally mentioned you!
Welcome new Whedonesquers, and Caroline: have I ever told you how much I LOVE that you open membership at holidays? It is so cool. Love and Merry and Happy to all!
Welcome new posters!
Firefly marathon on Science channel & new membership to Whedonesque. W00t! Must be a holiday or something!
Thank you! Merry Christmas!!
This is great, thanks so much :)
Yay! Welcome to all new people!
Welcome new Whedonesquers! Glad to have you aboard.
Welcome to all the new people.
Ahh. Welcome new colonists. I myself was once exiled royalty, marooned ouside the planet Whedonesque and looking in with my enormous telescope with envy. Now I get to greet you, hail fellows well met!
I'm not sure how I finally clued lucked into membership. I would see things I wanted to comment on and couldn't; maddening. Sort of like Internet roulette, I came to the site one day and it was open membership and I did gambol and throw celebratory darts and played a rousing round of croquet with the Red Queen (not really) but it felt that good. Enjoy, new posters, as I assume you've been readers ere long.
Welcome, all! For a long time, I was not aware that registration windows were so sparse here. The day I decided I would like to register, registration happened to be open.
Thank you ! Merry xmas everyone !
Happy holidays to all and welcome to the new members!
Merry Christmas!! Welcome everyone!!
Yes! Thanks a lot, guys!
I've been waiting for years!
Hello, it's nice to meet you all.
Hello folks! Happy to be part of this new batch of online Scoobies!
For GOD and his Angels....Thank you...Thank You...

Welcome new people! Put up your feet and have a spot of tea.
I feel bad reading all these comments as I've only been waiting since October, but hey, I'm excited too.
Welcome new members, it'll be great to see some fresh...er names around here? ;)
My very first comment...Hi everyone!

Heh, I always love this :). Welcome everyone! Please have some complimentary cake with the tea you're supposed to get us ;).

(And on a semi-seperate note: yikes, it's been a month since my last post, and another month 'till the one before that, maybe I shouldn't be welcoming people, but re-introducing myself... where DOES one get that tea? ;))
I also feel a little guilty as I've only been waiting since September, but excited to able to join! Thank you!

Just joined. Stopping in tonight to say hello and Merry Christmas. :)
This community is just so gosh darn friendly - no griping about the ways changing and the youngins about to theoretically ruin everything it stands for. After lurking (lots and lots of lurking) for five years I'm proud to join you all officially :)
Thanks for opening up to new members. Been a fan for a long time - great to finally stop lurking. Merry Christmas to you all.
It's great to finally have an account, great Christmas present to myself :)

Welcome! Welcome all to our merry band of ruebens!
Yes! I've been a huge Joss Whedon fan since 2005, but somehow I always missed it when Whedonesque had open registration!
Benn lurking and wanting to join for years. Thanks for the opportunity!
Welcome, long-time lurkers, first-time posters. Glad to see you're Sleeping Not Dead. Feast!
Thank you!! Merry christmas.
Welcome to all!
Merry Welcome to all the shiny new members!
Hello everyone! I've waited for ages to join Whedonesque. Now I will finally be able to join in the discussions rather than just lurk and read.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
Thank you! I've been waiting almost a year to be a member! This was one of my favorite Christmas presents.
Thank you! This is ever so exciting. Happy Holidays to all!
Yay! Now I can finally stop lurking!
Thank you! I've been waiting for so long! I love this website, and I'm so happy I can finally join it.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
I hope you all got snow like the Hellmouth did :)
There was almost no sun today. If only we could have gotten snow.
Thank you so much Whedonesque! Merry Christmas everyone!
Thanks Whedonesque! Nice to not feel like such a lurker!
Shiny! Been waiting a long time for this excellent little xmas present, thank you so much Whedonesque!
With a solid 18 minutes left of Christmas (PST), I accept invitation to Whedonesque and say "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night."
Yes! Finally made it in!
Fantastic! I've been wanting this for years!
Welcome to all the new folks!
Yay! Happy Christmas everyone!
BOY am I excited, I can't even tell you! Best Christmas Ever! ;)
Welcome, all!
No more lurking! Happy new year!
Woohoo, all new people to discuss all the latest happenstances with! Greetings and happy holidays everyone!
Yay, like many people have been lurking and reading for years and always seemed to miss the holiday joining dates. Not this year - thanks, just added to my Christmas cheer!
Woot!
Why is it that membership is generally closed? Was there some kind of mass fake-user creation attack back in the day?
Jeezum Crow! Who knew there were so many lurkers-now-members?! Welcome everyone, from a Haven't Posted So Much Lately member. Glad y'all got in.

(Only vaguely-related: In the Old Whedonesque Days, you could see off to the side of the page a link to a list of the referring search terms which had led people to the site. Everything from "Alexis Denisof naked" - not that that was ever posted - to "Jayne Hat knitting patterns" brought people here... and of course the perennial favorite "Joss Whedon's personal blog".)

Anyhoo, late to the parade, but a belated Happy Merry to all, welcome to the New Blood, and where does the time go? (#AClichéADayKeepsTheDoctorAway)
I also want to say Happy New Year and I hope everyone had a great holiday.
Welcome new people!
Been hoping to do this for a long time, and now I have. Yippee!
Just what I have always wanted. Thanks!
It's so sweet to see how happy this makes people. Like lookin' in a mirror back to whenever that was for me.
Been reading awhile, thanks for opening this up to us newbies! I especially can't wait to discuss the comics. :)
Hooray! I've been waiting a long time for this. What a merry Christmas surprise!
Me too! Merry Xmas all! Looking forward to another delightful Year of Whedon!

Welcome everyone :)
Sweet. I have been waiting (and heavily lurking) for many years as well. Nice to finally join fellow browncoats -- and to receive such a warm welcome. How unsurprising ;)
Woo hoo! I'm finally a member!
I can't believe it took this site until December 2012 to get a user named zelda.
b!X, are you keeping a check list?
No. You'd just think that every geek-inclined website would have a zelda early on.
Best present ever!!!!
Yeah! Happy to finally get to be part of the in crowd.
I'm jealous I didn't think of Zelda as a name.
Thank you very much!
