I would like to encourage regular members to welcome new members when they show up. Believe it or not, I was really intimidated when I first started posting here because this is a highly technical forum.

Now that I've been posting here for a while I've developed some valuable friendships that are great but my initial feeling was that this was going to be a tight group that will be tough to be accepted in.

Anyway, those are just my thoughts alone. I'm just thinking out loud.

People are coming here for information and in that regard the order is great because people can browse through here quickly and be pointed in relevant directions but if we can get fellow believers and doubters feeling comfortable to engage us in discussion their stay here could be more profitable...again just my opinion.

I agree. Some may not like welcoming new people for one reason or another. But if we are to have new members feel welcome and stay. This needs to be done.

I'm another one of the regulars that doesn't visit the new members section enough. I'll try and make more of an effort in future too.
