    This is an image I created a couple of days after the new BYC format was introduced. Whilst I've included it in New Member Introductions posts, I'm not sure how useful to new members it has been. Any feedback from new members that have used it would be appreciated, so that I can modify / improve it. Thanks.

    I'm quite sure that it will be very helpful. The challenge is getting feedback from the end-user. Sadly, the end-users being new members tends to mean that their lack of familiarity with the site (and wanting to explore / ask questions) detracts from receiving feedback - that goes for both our "guides".

    Let's hope that between my short and sweet version, and your detailed version, they both help new members to post in the forums likely to attract the optimum responses.
