The first step (after pursuing the site – and watching the long-awaited LA Souk recreation of Princess Bride: BURNERWOOD!) is to create your own LA Burner Profile page, where you can tell the community a little about yourself, what you do, what you do for fun, your burn history, and more! You can also create profiles for your theme camps, mutant vehicles, and art!
(If you have any trouble, we’ve written up instructions, they’re under a drop down that says “How to Use the Site” in the top left corner of all pages. If you still have questions, or find a bug in the site, you can submit your issues here: http://www.tiny.cc/labmbugform.)
Once you have a Burner Profile, you can submit Articles (if you can dream it up and it relates to the community, you can post it!). And we’re very excited to have a place to share Events on one, central community calendar that we can all benefit from!
There’s even a Classifieds section so you can buy/sell stuff, find or post job openings, find tickets and rideshares and more… think Craigslist, for us!
We’ve got some wonderful contributors to the site, and would love more! There’s info on how to get involved in the first post of this newsletter (we could use help in every category, from programming and CSS to project management and content contribution).
This site has been a labor of love for those of us getting this started, but now it’s your chance to really USE the site as a place to meet each other, learn about each other’s lives and projects, and connect through events and classifieds. Like I said in the intro, we’re looking forward to having a place for the Los Angeles Burning Man community to thrive!
