In a refreshing departure from the drudgery of the "I'm leaving" threads, let's talk about "I'm new" threads!

Frankly, I don't see a whole lot of point to them. Its just a way of saying "HI! I JUST GOT HERE AND I WANTED TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY KNEW BECAUSE I'M SURE YOU'RE ALL SO INTERESTED!

Of course, they're much nicer than those blasted "I'm leaving" threads, in which they always come back anytime from a week to three hours later. :p

Did you post an "I'm new" thread when you first joined? I sure didn't. I just popped up one fateful night, and the rest was history. That's how I became the most exalted and popular person on all of Lucasforums! :D

I hate you so goddamn much. :mad:

No... I didn't post an "I'm new" thread :( In hindsight, it was the most stupid thing to do!! I NEVER got a replica spoon gift, I NEVER got a basket, I NEVER got a chocolate chip cookie :( :(

Hmm maybe I should make an "I'm new" thread after all :) Would it be strange if I did that after 1000+ posts??

Nope, I did not post a hey I'm a new guy here thread. I found this network of forums because of my Clan leader at the time. He told me about this place and I liked it so I stayed, it was the will of the Force. :yoda:

I think we should have One thread where everyone can come and introduce themselves. That's how I think it should be handled. Some stikied thread that says "Welcome Newbies - Introduce Yourself Here" or something like that.

Whats wrong with "I'm new" threads? All they are doing is letting you know they are knew so you don't see a post by them in a thread and go "who in the wide world of sports is that?!"

For a place like this, no. Its too big.
But for a smaller community, it would just be weird to not post a intro greeting.

I didn't post a "I'm new" thread for two reasons:
1) I didn't know if I'd be staying long enough to warrant one.
2) I've done it in the past on other forums and either been flamed or completely ignored. This is the first forum I've come across with a true sense of community without being at all 'clique'-ish.

Big up yourselves Swampies! You're all welcome round my house after closing time!*

If I'd known the welcome I'd have gotten, I probably would have posted one. But by the time I realised I was addicte~ erm, staying, I already had about 70 posts so it seemed a bit daft. :rolleyes:

Can I have a spoon anyway?
:D B.

I never posted one. I'd much rather see the "hello I'm new" thread, then the "I'm leaving" thread. :rolleyes:

Did you post an "I'm new" thread?

I guess posting here counts as posting on an "i'm a noob thread" so technically.... I'm confused :confused:



Here's what I think: People who are new to the forums and post the I'm new threads just want to say hi. Maybe they just arrived here, maybe they've been reading threads for a while and are interested in posting, or maybe they've been going here for the files from jediknightii.net. For whatever reason we should welcome them.

I believe the I'm new threads should be open for 1 week to make them feel special (give them welcome baskets and stuff). After that they should be closed so that the SPAM stays down.


I'm leaving threads are a different matter. It usually means a person is bored with the forums, is mad for some reason because of the system or certain users, or is unable to find the time and/or resources to visit us. Either way we should do the same: Acknowledge their existence, give them a "fare-thee-well basket" and close the thread before the SPAM piles up.



I'm just as guilty of both of these, but I made mine with more than 1 purpose. My I'm new thread was also a tips thread for JKII and my bye bye thread was due to PC problems so I made it a pc help-me-out thread. :)




it's all good :cool:

Usually, stupid statements and repeated questions are a sign of "newnism." (<-New word!) There really isn't a point in creating an entire thread just to say: "I'm new!" or "Yay! First post!" It just reafirms how much of a newnist (<-Another new word!) you really are.
