    Suggestion: An Introduce Yourself Forum and minimum post count requirements

    I'm just giving a suggestion just in case this wasn't thought of. I am thinking of an Introduce Yourself Forum where new members can post to get their first few posts out of the way. This would accomplish two things: To relieve the stress new members might face when posting for the first time, and also it would provide some sort of a snapshot of what the member's intentions are.

    In addition, I'm proposing a minimum post count where users can send out PMs, maybe set it at 5? That would also potentially reduce the people who jump on the forum with the only intent to sell. I read about one of the members that was sending PMs to other users only to sell their wares. If the posts are gibberish in nature then that could be a tell tale sign the new member doesn't have good intentions.

    Your thoughts?

    I like the idea of it, though I'd probably post an "introduction" of myself there too, just a general one to help them feel more at home.

    What insanely good ideas... both implemented.

    Five posts or higher automatically grants PM on an hourly-running script.

    Additionally, there is an Introduce Yourself forum plonked at the top of "Discussions".

    Thanks!

    Thanks Ergle, hopefully the post count counter will weed out some of the riff raff

    Ziggy,
    For a fellow who seems to think he's being helpful in the forum, you sure like to stir up shit. No one wants to hear the smartass responses, so stop it.

    Well, I've you're logged in, you go to the bottom of the page. There's a part where you can write things. When you're done, just click post quick reply. If you want to start a new thread, go to the home page, click on the place where you want to put it, click on the top of the page: Start new thread. Write what you want to write, save it and voila!
    Hope I helped you a bit.

    I feel like I don't post or comment nearly as much as I should for how much I frequent The Den.

    This should've been doing ages ago and i love the idea. Post Count should be a minimum of 10, bevore beeing able to PM etc, that will truly separate the wheat from the chaff . Just my 2 cents though.
