If it werent obvious.

I've seen tons of boards out there without a forum like a Newbie Forum, and finally decided we just don't really need one. It mainly became:

"Hey I'm new"

"Hey welcome to the board. Read the FAQ. Stay off Lawns. Post and have fun" ---- x 2000.

So, in the end we just simply decided we can just have an introduction thread stickied here in general to serve the purpose of the Newbie Forum.

If you for some reason want to see some of the old threads there, they were all moved to Game Over.

Truly, I'm surprised you hadn't deleted it sooner. I've jested many times about the lack of intelligent or creative speak in that forum and the high amount of spamming.

Perhaps this should be a global announcement?

You should edit the forum description to General Discussion so people know where to go to introduce themselves now.

Why need introductions at all? Just post. That was it. It was mainly just a way to up the post counts and warn people about my lawn.

Yay, no....wait.. Now the one-post newbies will have no place to go, and will make one sentence posts and threads all overthose forums I actually enter. Egads! Think of the Chaos!!!!!!

We could always have a Newbie-introduction RP thread. , a nonstop party of welcomes and goodbyes. It would be BIZZARO!

I agree with Zabuza. Nine times out of ten I didn't give a rip about the newb it just meant more posts for me.

Yeah, that's kind of why I made the rule:

"Don't reply to the newbies here, unless you have something good to say. Just don't post anything along the lines like "Hey welcome, etc".

(not exactly like that, but yeah)

*Walks across Zabuza's lawn*

Awww, I liked the n00bs forum.

We could always move the introductions to Xeoland.

O_o You stepped on the lawn...**collective gasps**

Anywho...**sniff sniff** I'll miss the forum I moderated...heh. Nah. Good riddance. I like the idea of having the thread here. And even if there is something to be said, I don't think it would be necessicary to post that in the thread. Just PM the user or something. **shrugs**

i still think it'd be a good idea to edit the forum description.
