Welcome message to unregistered users

I've just installed IE7 (yeah I know, I'm just curious) and when I logged in I saw the "Welcome..... helping to solve the modern Alfa gremlins" welcome message new users get.

Does anyone else think this is giving potential Alfa owners a less-than rosy image of Alfa ownership? If a website run by Alfa enthusiasts can't project a positive image, who will?

Am I just being paranoid?

Re: Welcome message to unregistered users

agreed - even with a family of gremlins in my new alfa ;-(

If alfa put them in the cars - perhaps the website needs some of it's own?

Re: Welcome message to unregistered users

I understand where you are coming from, but lets be realistic with ourselves here

Anyhow, I am glad you brought this up, the whole unregistered/logged out part of the site has undergone some massive changes in the last few months, you may not of noticed that the actual welcome message is an image, not real text, its been completely set up that way. Hope you understand where I am coming from as I am not about to give away anything else

Re: Welcome message to unregistered users

I tried to select the text to paste it into my post, and thought there was something funny going on when I couldn't

If you've already thought about it and chosen to word it like that, who am I to argue?

Re: Welcome message to unregistered users

Well, I am not going to argue, you wouldnt mention it if you thought it was acceptable.

What would you like as a welcome message? Anyone can post one up in this thread.

I think the current text is spot on.

Beta Juliet, you are a naughty person, please check the spelling of the car you drive and edit it in your profile
