Yeah that was a big + for me. I was welcomed by a handful of posters when I first got here. Over my fairly short time so far I think there are some awesome posters here. I even like the ones I annoy with my elitist mentality and disagree with. Even those guys are overall great posters.

I usually try and peek in there every now and then. And welcome people. It would kind of suck to post a hello and have nobody say anything.

I have been posting on forums for years now and it just seems like the majority of newbs don't stick around no matter what. Whether they are here just to do some spamming or just browsing for the day. It just seems like no matter what the majority of them don't stick around anywhere. The ones that do stick around usually get involved in other threads fairly quickly it seems and are easier to spot. Just how I see it.

I do think a lot more members fade away than stay. It just makes the forum seem active and friendly when they get hellos and welcomes. It's that whole first impression thing.

Yeah I think it makes a difference for those making a genuine attempt to become regular posters here. I think more then half are just passer byes though no matter what. But of the ones with any intentions of posting I think it makes a difference for sure.

Hit gets it. A forum that doesn't invite new members is a forum with nothing but old members. Invite the newbs and educate them when at all possible.

I had heard of a Gracie Killer when I first joined but didn't know who Sakuraba was until my first 50 posts.

Oh man I was bad when I first joined. If they weren't a UFC champion, i didn't know them. Didn't know what the actual weight the weight classes were. I did know about the WEC though. No idea who Fedor was.

It was bad.

Oh and Rusty, nice thread!
Yea I'm gonna stick around for a bit, give this a real chance. But thus far it seems like a lot of work and isn't very user-friendly. Hoping once I get the hang of it the site will be more fun and worthwhile. Thanx for offering your advice on learning the ropes. Its highly possible I will be taking you up on that offer!

It gets a lot easier once you familiarize yourself with the site. And if you have any questions at all please don't hesitate at all to contact one of the staff members and we will point you in the right direction.
