Getting to know the Amazin’ Avenue community

There’s no Mets baseball to bond over, so let’s get to know each other and little better!

Hello, Amazin’ Avenue readers! If you’re new here, thanks for checking out the site! If you’re old here, thanks for sticking around! We hope everything is well and that you’re staying safe, and we promise that when baseball returns, this will continue to be the best place to come for Mets discussion. In the meantime, we’ll do our best to provide you with some interesting, fun content to keep you entertained during this crisis.

But while we’re all here, we figured it would be worth it for us all to get to know each other a little better. We’ve done this a couple times in the past, though we haven’t done it since before the 2015 playoffs, which was a long time ago. Long-time commenters can tell you how much the community has changed since then. So with everyone stuck inside and no Mets baseball to discuss, what better time to get to know each other than now?

If you’re a regular commenter, this is a great opportunity to get to know the people you talk baseball with all the time. And if you’re more of a lurker, now’s a great chance to let yourself be known and have some interesting discussions with others.

Additionally, if you don’t have an AA account, feel free to sign up for one and get chatting! Of course, please take a few moments to read through the Amazin’ Avenue User Guide to get to know this place a little better, and make sure you’re familiar with the community guidelines before commenting.

We encourage everyone out there to participate, even if you’re visiting from another site. All are welcome and we want to hear from you!
