AO gives a thank you to everyone... - INFO

Since the 28-04-2006, every new member at AO.com has received a reply when they have posted their first hello to the "Introduce Yourself" forum.

Well a BIG pat on the back to all our members. Its great to get the welcome friendly buzz back into the site again and at the rate our new members are signing up this is no easy task for one man, or should I say small team? So thanks again to you all...

Re: AO gives a thank you to everyone...

Phil, well I thought it would be wrong for me to name individual people in-case I missed someone, but your posting work is most certainly noted Phil, I am sure the newbies appreciate all of your replies, however, useless, uninformative and trashy they can be!!!

Some of us oldies have to hand the task down to the newbies ... who are doing a splendid job I might add

Otherwise my post count would be more ridiculous than it currently is



Just hope we are making them all feel welcome elsewhere on the forum Seems to be working

Re: AO gives a thank you to everyone...

I've recently joined, it was good to have a few welcomes. Easy place to fit into.

I've not got all that much time to surf, but post the odd Wotcha when I come across them.

Hi,

As a Newby I would like to say how friendly everyone seems and I got a real warm welcome. (Ant, Kurzon).

Thank you

Re: AO gives a thank you to everyone...

I was a newbie myself in September 2005 not only to AO but to Alfa ownership, and I was made to feel very welcome. There were a couple of intense slagging matches brewing up at that time but they were de-fused very quickly & effectively by AO Admin. Since then all differences of opinion seem to have been voiced with respect and humour

Welcome on board ... it's not like a chore or anything, just mutual fun

I tend to (as others) welcome people (or be it, encourage noobs in posting) in WOT by replying to their threads/posts I know it can be daunting when people see so many people posting who seemingly know each other well. Which is the case for some, but, imo, it's generally because it can be a very friendly place to post, so everyone mucks in... mucking about
