FWIW- I've been away from here for some time, but am back and Find it sad that newbs are given the cold shoulder on ANY site. I know that this is a legit, quality site with tons of helpful folks. I'm a coding neophyte myself, but a vet of the internet and find it simply reprehensible that new members posts are ignored... "Welcome" is totally generic, costs a poster nothing, and is only 7 keystrokes.
And... its not difficult. Its shameful that someone who originally posted in August did not have a greeting until March.


Agreed. I've been trying to remember to check here when I have time, lately, and answer any topics that haven't gotten a reply yet. Some time's I do fall in to being a bit generic if it's late, I'm in a hurry, or there's a few too many topics unanswered, but I late least try and get a a full sentence or two in and have a somewhat decent, nice, reply just to make sure they get something.

Indeed, it is very important that they feel welcome coming to the site, I know I need to pick it up on my part. Greeting leaves the first impression the user has with the forum.

I, too, am trying to write in this section from time to time, however I never write a templated "welcome" message. Rather I only "welcome" when I have something even remotely genuine to say to that person. Usually that means I answer people who plan on learning C or C++. ;)

I don't want them to feel that my "welcome" is forced, automatic, and not really aimed at them, so I always try to think of something, even if its just a few words. Hopefully I'm not too bad at it. ;)

Thank you very much for giving me the Greeters badge :)

I hope I will do justice to it by greeting new members so that they feel welcome in the forum. :)

Thanks again.

regards,
Raghav
