General introduction topic
Posted 16 July 2012 - 04:39 PM
I think introduction topics make the off-topic forum more cluttered with topics that are of no interest for me beyond the starting post. I'd like to know if others think the same about those topics. If so, I think that's a waste of space.
To reduce the space used by introductions, I think it would be a good idea to have one topic for all introductions. The topic would then be pinned and every new member is invited to post their introductions there. All the "welcome" replies can be pruned if the GMC in general thinks they add little value. That way, only the interesting posts - the actual introductions - stay and are nicely collected in one place.
An alternative is to create an "introduce yourself" subforum, but I think that would get out of hand quickly.
I'd like to add that the Dutch GMC has an "introduce yourself" topic since 2005 and it works nicely. But with the new off topic forum, this GMC can both feel closer, and provide more freedom.
What does the GMC (staff) think about this? Is it needed? Would it work? Would it introduce new problems? etc. etc.
