New member's
 
Hello all moderators and admin. how about a section dedicated to new members to introduce themselves and tell who they are, what they do, their interests etc. It seems to work well on another forum that I am a member of, and may just break the ice, I remember that I was a little unshure on my first post.

Yes could be a good idea Bob, it would certainly be nice if new members at least said a quick hello and told us what their hifi interests were etc, but I don't see a problem if they have an interest but are too shy to post, and wouldn't want to discourage anyone :)

What do others reckon?

Yep I think it could be helpfully as well
It would be good for new member to identify if there are trade or technically qualified for example or just a valve head or whatever
as far as being too shy to post, I canít really comment on this one as I was once too shy worried about how I would be perceived :eek: with my dyslexic problems :)

Hi all,
Yes I go along with this wholeheartedly.
Things we must do are not only to encourage all new members but also try to help anyone that asks questions on any sort of related Hi Fi topic. Maybe we will be unable to answer them here, or won't want to, but at least we can give them some pointers.

Good idea, but please don't go down the road of the other forum where they jump on every new poster insisting that they give their full life history as soon as they dare to make a posting. It should be optional.

Good to get some feedback on this, I just feel that a quick (hello this is me and I am so and so) would be good for the forum and the new member, who ever they maybe. :)

Very good Richard should work well, :D errr, what if you don't like coffee:rolleyes:

I think I agree with everyone! We should truly encourage new members to "come out of their shell" - but really don't want to pressurise them either. There is a social aspect to the forum, which is great, and I think the Coffee Bar might be the place for this. (Thank you Richard for setting it up.) Perhaps we could suggest this to new members in their "welcome" email...? (If I can work out how to edit it...)

Well as it is past 09:00 somewhere in the world a large Armagnac is my choice.
