Some MDL Numbers
We're displaying over 450 pictures of Def Leppard wives and girlfriends.
We've been visited by fans in over 80 countries.
We have over 800 members in our forum.
On August 4, 2003, a new hobby was born for Anastacia
Savage (real name - Malibu) . Her boredom mixed with her love of Lep led to the
birth of Forever Immortal Def Leppard Group. A couple of clicks and she had her
very own group on MSN.
Two days later, Malibu realized that this
hobby was a bit more complicated than she originally expected and required a lot
of work (LOL). That's when the best friend and fellow Lep fan, Lepnotized (real name -
Jessica) started hearing about this new creation. August 8, a partnership was
born for Malibu and Jessica.
Within a couple of months, we formed the
idea of highlighting the Lep Women. Before the end of our first year, we had a
page for profiles and a photo album developed. Little did we know that this
would become our successful niche in the Lep world online. By the end of our
first year, we had 115 members.
Over the years, we continued to develop
and grow in information and members. We quickly became the most informational DL
group around ( not counting groups dedicated to one particular band member). By
the end of our run, 5 1/2 years later, we had over 600 members representing at
least 8 different countries.
No matter how big we grew, one thing stayed
the same, our community avoided the negativity that seemed to haunt Leppard
communities. For our first anniversary, one of our members labeled it perfectly:
"Thanks for all the fun! I must say, with all the Lep groups I have been
involved in, this is by far the nicest group of people! I have left 90% of the
other groups due to the cattiness and hateful comments, and general one
upmanship going on between members. I'm glad to see the people on this website
are not taking themselves too seriously." ~ Weasel310
MSN forced us to find another option, and although at first we didn't see the silver lining,
we are grateful for the opportunity to expand ourselves. We know that we have
the opportunity for greater exposure to Lep fans with a dotcom vs. an MSN group.
We're hoping this becomes a successful venture, and we thank all our members of
the past and welcome all the new fans who didn't know of us before!
