1. My last notice about soft dicks has worked well so will try another...the forum traffic and posts and interaction is picking up and we want more interaction from everyone. I understand some can't learn to post , either too shy or too lazy but you can learn to use the emoji's which are on the bottom right of every post. Use the like or dislike button...let strangers know you have passed their way and appreciate they have made the effort with the post. USE THE EMOJI'S and this way you are joining in...it does make a difference.

    Would it be possible to exclude the threads from the "Introduction" board from the "New Posts"?

    When I visit the site, the first thing I do is click on the "New Posts" link to see what has been updated since the last time I was on. Most of the threads that are listed are "Hi", "I'm New", "Hello". Pretty pointless stuff and makes it harder to find the threads I want to read.

    Thanks :)

    I find if we answer their hello, hi, etc with questions about them and/or are friendly, newbies then tend to interact more. Therefore we have more people posting, more fun and much more information at our fingertips :)

    Personally I've found that if you engage with a newbie & show we are a friendly bunch they tend to feel more included, thus wanting to contribute more.
