I've noticed that some of our newer members Introduction threads are going un noticed.
I know when I joined I felt welcomed with arms wide open. (except from Kevin ;) )
Just think we should be more mindful in welcoming our new members. Only takes a few seconds to say welcome. And well let's be honest it boosts your post count.
Just my thoughts. :)

Post count isn't everything. However I do agree about the welcome part, it is nice to be greeted.

Agreed. what bugs me thou is that 99% of the time I never see them post again, so sometimes I just skip. It's like you open the door to a friend at your house, you greet him, he comes in, drinks your coffee and he leaves without saying bye.

I wonder how many of the regulars here (there's probably about forty of us) have an intro thread. I'm guessing two or three.

It's a great place for spammers to begin working on their post count and friendliness while in the sleeper-spammer state.

I do! :) I believe Lon was actually the very first to welcome me!

You peaked my curiosity mindi on who you would consider regulars. I would think that would be more than forty. That's why I am asking.

I was referring to the people who post here every day or nearly every day.

Gotcha. :)
I understand why the mods don't. I know that you (kevin) had a stint of bad new members. I think my op was towards the others. And again was just my thought on the matter.

I don't post daily anymore through lack of time, but id consider myself a regular.

I used to consider myself a genius until that was pulled from under me ;-)

I used to consider myself a genius until I figured out that the dog, the cat, the spouse, and the kid are all smarter than me.
My daughter teaches me things every single day. She is 20 months old! lol
