    Do you think MiceChat needs a New Member Forum?

    This question popped into my head, after the thread I just started on lurking and how long some MiceChatters waited before joining.

    I certainly, would not tell MiceChat how to do things. I think MiceChat is wonderful.

    I noticed that other boards have special forums, for new members to post. They can introduce themselves, etc.

    Do any members feel, that we need that at MiceChat?

    Just curious - can't hurt to ask.

    I think most of the "lurkers" read the Disneyland forum and the Lounge. I know that we have a "Welcome new members" thread at the top of the Lounge forum and there was one in the Disneyland section.

    I agree with you, I see more lurkers than members on here all the time. I think that maybe there should be a sticky thread in each forum for new members. Maybe that will help a little.

    Mamabot has an intro post in the Lounge for people to introduce themselves at. I really don't think a forum is necessary.
    ...it's been a long time.

    Dusty has said he is trying not to make more forums then he has to. Besides, most new members have already been reading MiceChat for a while, and whether or not they choose to introduce themselves is their decision.

    I am embarassed!

    I did not even realize that there was a welcome thread under the MiceChat Lounge section. I am so embarassed. So there is no need for another section to welcome people.

    My mom always told me that I was not very observant. :o

    Don't panic. I'm sure it's at least appreciated that you tried to come up with a helpful suggestion.
