My thread is about helping new players get accustomed to the site. When i joined it took me near over 2 weeks to learn how to properly post and add a sig and avatar. so my idea is that when someone signs up, they will receive a message instantly full of links and welcoming them to the site.

Example:

Welcome to XBOX360Achiements.org, we're glad to have you on the site.
Here are a few links that may help you get used to our site.
"link to signature walkthrough"
"link to avatar help"
"link to FAQ"


yes i know many of these things the newcomer will eventually learn. but some newcomers are lazy and want an excuse to make bad posts, plus they have plenty of links to help them become a thriving member of this site.

p.s. not saying all newcomers are bad/lazy...

I guess that would be cool, because if something gets confusing, some people tend to leave it.

Maybe if it would be the first thread that people signing up see... like submit the application for a username and you get forwarded to the welcome thread with all the rules and how-to threads.

i know its in the faq area... im saying that when someone joins they get a link to the faq and other things that most newcomers have problems with.

That has already been suggested elsewhere and it is being looked into as a welcome PM/email methinks.

Too slow =P
