New people (or bots) without intro posts
« on: May 08, 2017, 04:26:29 PM »
Hello

Should we have a friendly sticky asking for people to say hello first, or soon apon arriving so we know they are actually human and get some idea about them?  See that wall of text in the argument chamber?    Also saw someone else did a first post about Xbox (seems more human).

The problems of having a working sign up area!

I cannot remember which forum it was, but one forum the only place to could make your first post was in an introduction section.  Of course bots could randomly choose that forum for its first post, but it did reduce bots overall.
