James, where do the new members names appear? You seem to welcome them and respond and I don't see where they have posted. Do they appear just to you as mod and then you introduce them?

knotreel, I find them posting in other threads. The tip off for me is to see how many times a poster has posted. If their stats on the left say 1 or 2 times posted, then assume they are new. You can then click their name and look at their details of their last 5 posts. Usually they just have 1 or 2 posts. Once in a while someone will show a post made some time ago, then a second post that day.

It's really comes down to being able to recognize a new name and/or to watch the number of posts they make. Lots of times, they will state they are making their first post in theirs. But my best indicator is the total post number count. That requires reading the threads. I know some don't read every thread, they pick the corn out of the..uh...chaff. I admit it bothers me when I see a new poster who gets one or two welcomes, maybe , but the number of views total column shows 20, 30, or more. They looked, but didn't engage. I guess it's just my 'touchy-feelie' side showing......again.....blush

When I find a new poster, I feel it is important that they be recognized and have a thread of their own. They should be encouraged to share their story, and their stats in their thread, so they become an individual. This is a thing that any one of us, not just the moderators, can do, and goes a long way to making new folks feel welcome and accepted as a part of something. That's something every member here can do, and I promise that that kindness will be remembered.
