    Welcome thread...

    How about a new Welcome thread. The current one is a mess and many post in the middle where they are never found again.

    Better yet, how about just welcome posts - I hate long threads. Is there some technical reason that forum admins like single long threads?

    Good idea, Terry. The reason there's one thread is that new members need to post five times before they can start their own thread. That's to make it more difficult for robot spammers. The Welcome thread gives new members somewhere to post. But I think having one per year is a good idea. And now is a great time to start a fresh one. Thanks for the suggestion

    Re: Welcome thread...

    I know I'm as guilty as anybody but there has been a lot of new introductions latterly and no one has welcomed them aboard, I assume the role isn't delegated to just one member so perhaps in the interest of avoiding recent members thinking we are an unfriendly bunch perhaps more attention to the intro thread is required. Maybe a designated intro forum rather than a thread would help, its really cool when you join a forum to have members acknowledge your arrival Even a simple "welcome" comment will do wonders. Old Clicker seems to do more than his fair share of this so....

    Isn't it a cool thing in nature that the colours never seem to clash...

    I have no issues with you editing my photos

    We could get rid of the old thousand page Welcome thread so they don't get lost in it. - Terry

    Re: Welcome thread...

    Hello everyone. Just joined the forum. I guess This is allowing me to make a post here. Every forum topic I've tried to post to gives me a message saying I need at least 5 previous post in order to post on that thread.
