    How many options would you like to see for welcomes anyway? If you're annoyed--might just not go there and punish yourself. Maybe they can arrange it where you can block what forums show for you? Padding post counts? Look--I could care less---take all of my welcome posts away that I've ever made if you want to--I think its part of community involvement. By the way--I don't like cookie cutter stuff either---that's why I arm myself with plenty of options! I don't like copy cats either--but feel free to copy and paste to your heart's desire--I can always find something more and unique--or make my own.







    I can make you one if you want.

    Honestly, this has been the first time anyone has ever brought this up as a "problem" and as almost every other element in the forum is subject to - one person liking it and another not liking it. This is something we are just going to have to agree to disagree on....

    Everything has a first time, that doesn't make it worth less.

    Personally, I don't care about post counts, or what people do to get them. However, it is a little annoying to use the 'new posts' feature, and see so many welcome posts. It'd be great to eliminate those from 'new posts' if possible.

    I didn't say it was worthless, I said we were going to have to agree to disagree; I have no plans to change this....

    Mea Culpa. I guess I am somewhat guilty of welcoming several new members at a time, but I agree with Bumper, that it's a nice welcome to new members and makes them feel "at home". I remember getting that welcome myself, and it was greatly appreciated.

    I have a suggestion for those that wish to welcome members en masse. Maybe you can welcome them one or two at a time, read some more posts elsewhere on the forum, then come back and welcome another one or two.

    That way, the New Posts search won't be so crowded with all those "hello" posts in a row.

    I have a suggestion then also. Anyone who's bothered by the en mass welcoming committees just go to the particular forums they enjoy most instead of viewing the general daily posts that run the gamut?

    Or, look to the right for the "New Members" entries and skip them.

    Okay, since not including the New Member welcome area as part of the 'New Posts' feature is not going to be considered, is there any possibility of people you place on your ignore list not be included in the 'New Posts'?

    I figured placing somebody on the 'ignore list' would be an easy option to alleviate my frustration, but instead, their posts still show up...I just can't see their 'generic' welcome.

    Or is the 'New Posts' feature, as is, just going to be something I have to get used to, or not use?
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Regardless of what forum the new posts reside in, they are still new posts and I am not able to eliminate them, in any way that I know of. I think you're just going to have to get used to it....
