Welcome Thread



  • So I was scrolling through our current members, and it appears that roughly half of the TB members have never posted anything to the site. In the context of infusing fresh members with their thoughts and questions, could we add a Welcome/Introduce Yourself thread in its own category to the home page?

    I remember there was one that was fairly visible on TM, and it seemed to help usher in the new users and make them feel comfortable to start posting on other threads.

    If there is already such a thread on here, and I just missed it, please carry on, and/or make it more visible on the home page.



  • Put another way, there are 170 users who have a combined 58 posts. That's a Tuesday afternoon for Kehaulani or Dr. GO.

    I don't expect everyone to be garrulous, but I wonder what keeps them in the shadows.

    And I did locate the Welcome thread under Announcements, but it has zero posts in it.



  • Weekend's coming up so I think I only go 28 in today!🤗

    Absolutely. And remember there is a W before the us's. (You and I)😊

    Here's anther possibility - users on the list who cannot post anymore because they cannot log in. I am "remembered" on one laptop, thus I can post this. But on 3 other machines, using Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome or Safari, while invalid credentials are immediately noted and I am prompted to try again, if I enter valid credentials, the site tries to trigger a download of some sort instead of actually processing login. Most browsers just freeze. The ones that let me download the file and look at it show me something that looks like a cookie, or perhaps some authentication string meant for some process. When I lose this channel, I wont be able to post anymore.



  • Just been crazy busy is my excuse for another prolonged absence. I know my wisdom has been missed;)
