Yes..

And Unknown Hero`s welcome message is just good* k:
Actually 'prohibition' means forbiddance (veto), so I will stop bumping my postcount on that way! :bleh: LOL [/b][/quote]
I know what it means... i used it unappropriately?!

And as worm mentioned, a normal greeting would do the trick, nothing more, nothing less

Come on, guys, give unknown a break! I personally don't think that much newbies would contact the admins on their own, it's better with a welcome message! In my opinion, it pretty much comes in handy!

Maybe we should create a poll! (or is it concluded?)

But if someone wanted to help out they would ask how. If they have given no hint of wanting to help out then why tell them how they can.

Because there are greater chances of getting help by encouraging people to contribute, then letting them to figure out on their own how, when and to whom they should speak about helping abandonia! What's the cost of unknown's hint, it can do no harm!

Even if it's a copy/pasted welcom messages, they are welcoming nonetheless to new members. A board that cares about newcomers is a close community. This also helps with bringing in more people. One of the things we do at my site is we actually have a board specifically for new members to introduce themselves at and where they can get to know some of the regular posters. It really helps in making people more at home. Also, even PMing new members welcoming them to the boards is a really generous way of saying that you're glad to have them join the community, thus reducing the chances they'll never come back.
