A few weeks back I announced that I was locking all the welcome topics. The main reason was so that the welcome topics didnt flood out the other posts since we have so many new members joining up.
Well, that worked fine for a while I believe. However, I found myself not liking the fact that our new members couldnt repond to their personal welcome message, giving us all a chance to get to know them. Therefore I have decided to unlock the welcome posts again.
However, I must ask that we dont flood out the board again this time by scrolling through the Member Intro board and welcoming several members in a row. This is a friendly gesture to the new members but it ends up flooding the board and washing away to many other fishing topics from the recent topic list that members are following.
Don't worry though. I do have a plan and I am working on code that will resolve this issue once and for all and keep any and all welcome posts from flooding the forums out. Its going to take me a little while but I will let everyone know when it is set.
In the meantime, feel free to welcome our new members again and get to know them and make them feel like they part of the family we have here. All I ask is that you do it in moderation... aka.. a couple here.. a couple there
Thank you all. Jared
