Hello everyone.

Since I have been back I have noticed several changes. One thing, hardly anyone greets the new members, tells them they are welcome here, or a simple hello. Years ago, people always made a point to help other members,,,,(atleast the new ones!) feel welcomed. If you look in the new members area, and scroll down, some new members do not even have a simple hello, maybe 2 replys at best.

before new members would have a ton of replies to their introduction...any thoughts on this? LOL

I just keep saying hello or hi hope to see you posting, and realised I was like the only one posting in there ❓

Im just wondering what changed...

It takes alot of balls or no balls to feel welcome these days I guess... Laugh 😉

You're right Sandra. Used to be tons of welcome posts for new members around.
Seems like it just kinda stopped.
Who knows maybe it'll pick up again since being mentioned. 😉

Dark- you might be right. Laugh

Shadowfx, serisously though, there was. Usually there would have been just tons of replies for newbies to read and respond to in their intro, it probably really made a difference, and got them to explore further.

Maybe some people just forgot. 🙂
