I feel im missing something, whats the rationale behing PM'ing newbies?

I guess because its like joining a new club and walking into the meeting area and members coming up to greet you.

 

You would feel pretty damn miserable if you got the courage up to join a club and walked in and nobody spoke with you.

 

In a virtual way of course.........but the principle is similar.

thanx mrs magic, im a bit slow on the uptake, thanx for clarifying that for me :thumbup: its actually a very good idea :thumbsup:

 

If thats the case, wouldnt it be a good idea to add a new group alongside, "admin" "moderators" and "vip" the group "mentor" these people will greet all new members and shows them around for the first initial few days build their confidence and encourage them to post.

 

takes the pressure off moderators, what dya think?

I totally agree, that is a nice position to have and definately think it would be beneficial.

theres a auto message mod that can be installed which can do this for these forums, would save manually messaging new members.

as a member joins or makes his or her first post they receive a welcome greeting.

just a thought ;)

I missed the love :)

 

He's a liar too . . .

 

I PM'd him :Scull:

 

 

I take offence to this libellous remark, it took you nearly 44 minutes to bang out a PM. :sniff: :Cry: I nearly died of loneliness :p

 

PS. my lawyer will be in touch regarding the deformation of character.
