On the one hand I think it's good that there is a friendly welcome...but on the other hand I find it really annoying:
~ the new person has asked a question and all they get are 20 "welcomes" and no answer. What will they think of the site then?
~ it doesn't half **** up the New Posts listings when 95% of the threads are the same people saying "Hi"
~ I am sure it is only used as a means of post whoring and people really aren't that friendly!

Re: Posts made in the Introduce Yourself Forum...

Don't care about the post count, but perhaps they shouldn't bump the thread on the 'topays topics' list?
But then, how would the new poster get any replies at all?
Complicated, it is.

Well if they read what they are supposed to first, they would see that the introductions thread is for just that

Also there are occassions when I or other members have told the new perosn to post in the relevant technical lounge or linked to it



p.s. of course you are right RA

I am a horrible, unfriendly w**ker and a complete post wh0re

Re: Posts made in the Introduce Yourself Forum...

Yes, I would miss out too. I think it's nice to welcome people.

Who cares whether it adds to the post count.

99.9% of people who post a question in the Introductions lounge get pointed in the right direction RS

Re: Posts made in the Introduce Yourself Forum...

I was grateful to receive a warm welcome when I joined - at least that way you get see a few names straight off - a bit like arriving at a party (with jelly and ice cream, and some of those little biscuits with the icing on...ahem...sorry)

I'm not worried about post counts, etc.

IMO, the more important subject is the various crackpots that keep returning, with the sole aim of being offensive, which is adding up to several per day.

...but maybe that's a different subject.
