    Default No Intro Page

    Who, upon joining the forum, decided to shy away from creating an introduction page, and jump right into the forum discussions?

    What were your reasons?

    I did not make an intro because I have no idea what to put into it. One of my Intro threads on another forum was "how goes it?". That was the extent of it.

    I'm not into canned welcomes. Also, I don't like making friends without knowing anything about them.

    I didn't really think about it.

    Why would I bother? It's a weird, unnecessary attempt at social grace. It's not like people walking into a party. No one needs to introduce themselves. No one is expected to introduce themselves.

    To my knowledge I've never replied in any of the welcome threads, ever. I've scarcely even poked my metaphorical head in them. I don't respond to them and don't understand why other people respond to them, so I didn't see the point in making one of my own in the first place.

    I did, but just cause I wanted to be at the centre of attention for a brief moment of popularity.

    It felt good. Totally worth it.


    Oh wait...this isn't what you're asking, is it?

    I did it after 5000 posts. It just seemed fun and I had passed all obligation to do so.

    I don't remember if I did, but I usually don't. I don't usually read intro threads.

    I rarely do intro posts. They seem kind of pointless & drawing unnecessary attention to me. I don't tend to read them either....I'd forget the people immediately after anyway.

    I usually just jump into posting while lurking when a thread prompts me to respond to it. I often find the thread via googling some related topic. So no, I didn't do one here...oh wait, I did post in a big intro thread where established members posted the "intro they never made".
