    I just want to say how crazy proud / happy I am to go to the new-member introduction section and see every single introduction (even when sorting by start-date) has a bunch of replies!

    This may not seem like a big deal, but feeling welcome when joining a new group makes ALL the difference in the world!

    Thanks to all those that help welcome our new members, especially those that reply with custom messages and questions!!!

    I haven't looked at in a while, but does it have a spot for the persons location? Some people have issues and knowing their location would help in many cases.

    We allow peeps to put that in their profile, so hopefully they will update the info there. (if they choose to)

    :frowHi Nifty,

    I’d like to see a question about the geographic location of the new member right off the bat.

    If it would be rude to ask:

    Dude/Dudette! Where you at?

    You could say something like:

    What challenges do you anticipate in providing protection from the type of weather your geographical location poses?

    Some people mention it in their introduction.
    I can understand that for certain situations, or in the case of a youngster signing on as a member, a location may not be something they (or their parents) want to share.
    Having said that, especially in the case of a new /newish member who is suddenly facing the stress of a timely emergency, there are many times when already having that info would be helpful.

    I think a lot of the daily users here, even if they don’t post a hello, maybe because they see there’s already three pages of greetings, (that would be me sometimes when I’m dashing out the door :oops:)
    at least read the new member’s post.
    Narrative details like that, tend to stick comprehensively and that might be helpful down the line.
