    Hey I have been thinking. When new members join I notice no one really says hi or the person does not post that he is new. I say when a new member joins we pm them a welcome post to the forums. So what do you think of that guys? Its just an idea and perhaps a stupid one but who knows? :smile:

    I think that's a good idea, Menion. I nominate you for the job. Vlad and Rosie used to welcome everyone, but they're both gone now.

    Menion, go take a look at the members list. 95% of the people there have less than 10 posts. All they come here for is to ask a question in the hint'n'tips section and leave. Fair enough too. I doubt that any of them will think "Oh boy, a game site with an intellectual part to the forum as well!" and suddenly decide to stay upon receive your welcome PM.

    I'm not against welcoming people, but I am against starting a new thread for every person that joins.

    The PM's are a plot to scare new people away, isn't it?

    Menion, what we used to do was post the standard greeting once they'd posted:

    Welcome to the forum USER-NAME! :wavey:

    No I was thinking not a new thread for every single new person. I was just thinking of have one thread like this one to welcome or I was planning on just pming them once just as a welcome here. But hey who knows?

    Not to disturb anyone, but posting FAST isn't really a good thing... It just depends on how and what you post, and, really, it isn't hard if there are good and interesting posts to reply to. When I was new (like you) I thought that all those super-posters were super. I just wanted to be like, and as good, as them. Now, I have over 1000 posts, and I see it isn't such a big deal. The biggest thing you get is forum-smarts (what to say, when, how, etc.), and some people skills. I almost consider HoL like a second family. With the brothers and sisters I love, and the one's that are annoying and seem to hate you, but family.

    Welcome to the forum, BTW! :D

    nbrosz is living proof of that one. I remember when he first joined - not quite as bad as SB, but disturbingly close.

    Sorry Chalk Donkey/Tzehoong, it seems your sarcasm is lost on Nbrosz.

    There was another person, recently banished, who managed to do about the same, shocking how the similarities just keep coming.

    Awww! Come on! It only took me a couple of weeks to get the hang of it, and I always have written in full sentances. I'm not a spelling wiz, but neither are most of you other popular guys. Hey, you were a newbie too once! Give me some slack!

    Nbrosz, I must say, you seem to have made a concious effort in making meaningful posts. You have come a long way. It's just a shame that you can't teach your OLDER brother SlugBug any different.

    Psssst... Has all the cheese slipped off his cracker?
