Perhaps... an idea?

Postby Keara » Thu Mar 24, 2005 1:17 am

To the owner of this site... My lack of knowledge towards the members is amazing.

You really should consider a forum where new members post, like an 'Introduce Yourself' place, where other members post thei welcomes and such. It would be a much easier task to meet the regulars that way.

Hi Keara,

welcome to the forum!
I'm not the administrator :mrgreen: but if you would like to introduce yourself, you could post in 'Fan Space' (which is also the most fun part of the forum in my opinion... :D )

I couldn't agree more Keara :D We just recently added a section on the forum that I admin for where all members and new members who wish to "introduce themselves". The member can go to that section and start a new thread to introduce themselves in, or they can post in a thread that is already there. Just and idea, but it works great. :D

I think maybe the best way is to encourage people to start a new thread in Fan Space.

On many other forums, they have one "Introduce Yourself" thread, and it usually gets really long and when I see that as a newbie on a forum it makes me feel that I'm just one amongst many hundreds of people, none of whom are special in any way.

Personally, I prefer newbies introducing themselves to start a new thread .... that way, all the replies are to that person and not the newbie who posted 2 or 3 before .... and if you introduce yourself and 3 or 4 others do so at the same time, you don't get lost as "old news" just because those 3 or 4 people came along 5 minutes after you did.

Just my 10 cents worth anyway .... I've had that before when I've introduced myself on a forum using thier "Introduce yorself" thread (some 50 pages long) and been almost entirely overlooked. It makes one think, "Why did I bother?"

I'll go to Fan Space and make a suitable announcement.

Great idea, Angus, that's definately the best way to do it, in my opinion anyway. I remember we used to have threads called "introduce yourself" but, because we had such a small community and not very many new members, the topic always got deleted due to it never being used... so this'll be perfect. Nice one.

Great idea Angoid :D Another forum I am on originally had one thread for introducing yourselves, but we thought it would be more fun if we started a section that is made for that. I agree, I think one thread gets too long, and then is overlooked. People tend to notice more if a new thread is started :D Way To Go Angoid :!:
