The off topic forums are getting kind of cluttered with "I'm new" threads.Maybe a new forum for new users to announce their arrival would be a good idea?It could be in the off topic section.

People shouldn't be announcing their arrival...it's just silly to do so.

Hey Jbone,

Yeah, but that doesn't stop them from doing it. ;-)

Hey Phade,

Does that mean it should be encouraged? :-)

Well,my idea's main goal is to keep new users from cluttering up the rest of the forums with "I'm new" posts,especially the off topic sections.Heck,maybe just a general users forum might be a good idea.

Or maybe I'm crazy.

the problem is they'd probally post in the wrong forum anyway.

I suggested this exact same thing a few months back......same reaction too

When they first sign up and prepare to login,maybe set the system to automatically take them to the new users forum first?

Who knows.

Sadness.
