I've noticed that I am member number 83, and there are now over one hundred members, which means that many members who were on board before the "Introduce Yourself" thread was created and some others who have joined since, have declined to introduce themselves. (Of course, I am assuming that the membership roll is in chronological order, oldest to newest.)

Some forums have a rule that you must introduce yourself, presumably to help reduce spam. I was wondering if we could encourage members to introduce themselves. I feel that community is fostered by interaction, and those that make the step to post an introduction will be more likely to participate in other discussions and possibly even help someone.

And, yes, I have been around Linux communities enough to know there are always a sizable number of people who will come to get specific help and then will be gone.

I am optimistic that we can find the people who will use this distribution in the way it was intended, which probably will mean greater participation in the long run. But it must begin somewhere. :D

Do what you can where you are with what you have.

I like it. :) What I'll do is add some text and a link encouraging to that effect to the registration process. Since I have to dig around in phpBB files, it may take a few days for me to get to it. :geek:

On another forum I belong to we, the mod's, encourage new members to go to the introduction forum and introduce themselves. It works quite well. Everyone receives a warm welcome.

We also send a new members first post to the mod queue to be approved. This has really knocked off the spam, word must have gotten around. :D
