Hey, are the "auto welcome" new member posts getting old?

Thumbs up or down on the new member welcome posts?

This will be a very short term poll

 

Is creating new topics to welcome ea new member a bit too much? 

 

Thanks for da feed back. Sometime as a software develops, certain new features are fun to try for the sake of community enhancement. If this feature sucks please help me settle it here and it's gone..  💣

The only thing I don’t like about the “welcome messages”, is they bury a new member’s actual post under “new members introductions”. Maybe do the “welcome messages” as a pm to each new member or move these “welcome messages” under their own thread.

IPB can be established for 1st Post to be in New Members Introductions.  Until they do that they cannot post anywere else.  I foudn that to be a very good feature in IPB

It helps me know how far back to scroll on the "Unread Content" page when I start recognizing names.

I like the idea of welcoming people but more like how we used to do it. The automated way beats you to the welcome and comes off as a little less warm & fuzzy, less ingenuous. Not that it is.

Yeah I am not a fan. I like to surf the intros to see if there are any other Aussies or Queenslanders signed up and it just gets too long with no responses.

Being fairly new here I think I would have appreciated a welcome when I showed up just to give me a starting point. But then again I'm only seeing 1 in 10 responding to the new Welcomes. So I may be an exception.
