Helping Newcomers Introduce Themselves

Post by Herr Dr. Professor »

We often have newcomers to RCTW who miss or, perhaps, overlook the language that urges them to do an introduction. I have a number of times tried to find the note about introducing oneself, but it seems that I cannot access the page unless I re-register as someone else, which would be wasteful of RCTW resources. I would like to point newcomers to the page. Can anyone help?

Hi Doc :wave:
I think this is more of a Comment and Suggestion kind of posting, as it's not a problem with the forum not working as it should.

The "note" you are trying to find is within the automatically sent forum joining Private Message from Matt. of which we happen to have a screenshot of :D

Thank you, SOG! Now it's readily available. I have an idea: get rid of my initial question. Move the pertinent information in your two posts immediately above to Comments and Suggestions. Then close the thread.

You're welcome Dr.

Well, I intended to move it eventually :thumbup:

As for removing your initial post and locking the thread, it still works with your post to get the message across, and leaving it open can keep the topic live ;) well, that's if anyone replies lol.

Although, I can and will turn it to a sticky :thumbup:

Hi guys, one of the things I added in the forum rebuild a little while ago was a message displayed to users with 0 posts, reminding them to post in the member introduction area:

That's cool Matt :thumbup:

So, armed with all that, there is no real excuse for missing it :think:
