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.

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.

I was referring to the people who post here every day, or at least on average 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 ;-)
