    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.
