This message is twofold!
First, a warm welcome to all the new members!
Second, this message is to introduce to our members a brand new feature I just whipped up here in the Bananas.org computer lab
Now all the existing threads and future threads that are posted in the Member Introductions
forum have a button that looks like this:
And you guessed it, you can click that button to quickly say "Welcome to Bananas.org" to the new member who has posted their introductory thread.
This will make it very quick and easy to welcome new members. It's useful if you don't have much to say aside from "welcome", or don't really have much time to post a lengthly reply, you can do it in one click.
It is similar to the "Thanks" system many of you are familiar with. However, the "Welcome" button only appears in the Member Introductions
forum and only appears for the first post in the thread. When you click it, your name appears in a list immediately below the first post as one of the members who said "Welcome" to the new member!
As goes with anything on the website, if you have any questions or comments I am very glad to hear them. And if you experience something strange with it's use, please tell me about it so I may investigate. I don't anticipate any problems with it (for now) but as we upgrade versions and the years go by, it may conflict with other things and perhaps stop working...
so please tell me about it if you notice anything strange at any time.
I hope you enjoy this feature! Use it well! And - welcome new members!
