Default The Newbie Thread

Is it really worth it? Does anyone read it?

I'm wondering because through my forum experience, a newbie intro allows folk to say hi or find out a bit about people. I'm a regular on a few bike forums and the newbie chats are usually most fun - I'm wondering if that's the case because of the theme. I mean, newbie says hi on a bike forum and you've got an instant conversation - what do you ride, discussion about how crap it is, what rallies you've been to etc. Guess that doesnt really apply here or does it?

More than anything it makes newbies feel welcome and therefore more likely to join in with the general banter of the site. Just a thought.

Do I sound like a whinger? I dont mean to lol
