Introducing Newcomers

It’s time to drop the introduction threads.

If your community has a thread for newcomers to introduce themselves, get rid of it. Nobody wants to stand before a big group and introduce themselves. Worse, these threads are usually 400 posts long and get little response from the community.

Create a weekly list of newcomers with a 3 line bio. Make it a tradition for existing members to introduce themselves to newcomers.

That’s much more welcoming.
