    That and I figure it's just a substitue for real personalized contact. Doesn't it piss you off a little when you get a robotic message on the phone... 'please press one after the beep'. The whole idea of a welcome thread is to introduce a new person to people, you can't trick someone into feeling welcome.

    Though, you can arm them with information that may make their stay at typoC. more enjoyable. They do that on other forums in a way, and they're usually stickies.

    I'm a Te dom. The perfectly informative and organised welcome PM is my wet dream.

    However, I suppose I could post the perfect welcome post if I were in the welcome committee.

    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    We'll have to elect you just to balance it all out. We can't let new people think that the entire thread is run by feelers can we?

    It would be pretty awesome if you could give a good insight into what it's like posting here, what you should aim for when you post etc. Like for example, many people forget why they ever came here and just post here because they are familiar with the forum... you could say that it's a force of habit. We need to encourage people to think about what they want from a forum, and what they could bring to a forum (I guess?)

    There's plenty of stuff that you could put in it. I like the idea

    Being too overly welcoming is a way to hell.

    Look at the Finnish immigration policy.

    If there's going to be a welcoming committee, let me be the first but not the last to vote against Justher being part of it.
