I had this idea. There just could be a forum for \'newbies\'; a \'welcome\' forum. I\'ve seen this idea being used at some forums. The forum would be used only for "Hello, I\'m new here" and question-threads to those who want to ask. And there the new users would be introduced.
No, it shouldn\'t be called a Newbie-forum, but a Welcome-forum or something. I hate those "I\'m new" -threads interrupting the Main Forum and Off-topic sometimes.
But, I don\'t think it\'s necessary right now as the pace of new registered members has slowed down. For a reason. PSX2 is out there.
I can quite remember how much newbies joined the members-group just before the launch of PS2. I was one of them
