I am interested in and was just thinking bout the Introduce yourself section of the forum.
There are a lot of people posting in there and regularly (I think we are up past 9K+ total users in the forum) but not so many of those users that post an introduction are then posting again in other parts of the forum from what I can see.
Wondering what others think of actively engaging a little better by allowing current users to post replies in there?
Currently new users post a comment but no current user can reply and say welcome.
My thinking is that if a new user perhaps says what they are interested in, where they come from other users can comment and engage in discussion “oh hi X, I am from X too, I too am interested in X…”
But of course that could easily derail the thread. That’s obvious.
Another idea would be to perhaps do a weekly summary of new users?
What other way’s can we engage with the new users on this forum?
