New Forum + New Forum Option

Just throwing this out there and an admin can do with it what he wishes. I recently started posting at gtastunting.com and they have an "Introduce Yourself" forum that makes new comers feel very welcomed IMO. I think edge could benefit from such a forum. We get many new members each month and this would give them a place to break into the community with a good post.

Also, the preveiously mentioned site has a forum option that saves posts if there is a problem when a member sends a post. That way, the member can copy what didn't get sent and paste it and resend it instead of having to retype their entire post. This would be good for our forums if it is possible.

Yeah, but having a designated site would be better IMO. Also, those types of thread in the Crap Shack often turn inot spam or flaming really quickly.

I think this is a great idea. It would:
1) Stop 'Hi, I'm new here' threads.
2) Make newcomers feel welcomed to the site.
3) Let newcomers get used to posting and other various things.

It could also be used for questions like 'How do quote other peoples posts?' and various other questions.

Yes, but turn off post count, otherwise you'll have people saying "welcome" in every thread.

Yeah, They had a newbie forum on an old forum I used to go to, it was mostly welcomes and how do I do XYZ.

Disable post count, mind.

Yeah, although he did make a comment about SA it was still in the wrong forum. So, you have my full support behind you Free Mike.

*cough*my point again*cough*

Again, this person who was new to the forums posted a "I'm new" thread in the wrong place. Then, telling someone new that their first thread belongs in a place called the crap shack doesn't make them feel to good.

Good idea. Post count should be turned off however... but wouldn't that confuse a few newbs and n00bs...? (If their first post didn't count)?

As far as I know after your first post it has not been counted but then the second post is number 1 and so on. At least for me anyway.
