Lurkers Anonymous (aka The Welcome Thread)

Recommended Posts

Well, I only made it brief and I didn't want to make it seem it seem automated, so I just wrote this:

I would just like to welcome you to Fed2k, and guide you over to this topic, which is a welcome post for all new members.

But, yeah, it does need changing.

Isn't it good for it to be brief? Unless you're intending to overload the new member with a load of information.

Notice we haven't had any new members posting here except acid-crash.

Well, I'm relatively new.

I have been sending out the messages...

Maybe they don't speak English well?

Well, the lack of new users posting here is rather disappointing. I'll leave this thread as a sticky until the end of April, but if new users don't start posting in it in decent numbers by then, I'm downgrading it to a regular forum thread. Then if we still see no effect by the end of May, Newt should stop sending out the IMs.

Well, I'm relatively new.

'Relatively' being the keyword. Almost 4 months, y'know ;)

Oh well, I didn't get a welcome of any sort when I first started posting, and what's your point?...

The point is that this thread wasn't here when you started so you're not a new member posting in it.

Howdy arond. Good to see someone replying.

Maybe to post?

Most people are looking for something when they turn up. Say online Emperor, or information on Dune, or even just a relatively mature community. One does not just join these things with no good reason.

...usually.

Probably about 1 in 3.  A couple of them viewed the topic but did not post.
