Exclamation Rules for welcoming new members

Here are the rules to welcoming new members who post their introductions in this Introduction forum.

1. All members can welcome another member by saying hello or welcome but DO NOT welcome the same member twice.

2. Members can reply to a introduction post only within 5 days of
- either the original introduction post or
- within 5 days of the last reply post (of which is within 5 days of the last). Example is below:

3. "I'm back" or "welcome back" posts from members who return from an absence from Animeboards.com must be done in General Non-Anime Discussion forum and NOT in the Introductions forum (read the forum descriptions!!)


Allowed:

Post#1: introduction Aug 1, 2002
Post#2: welcome post by eva2000 August 1, 2002
Post#3: welcome post by ATh August 6, 2002
Post#4: welcome post by Pen2 August 11, 2002

notice all replies within 5 days of each other

NOT ALLOWED

Post#1: introduction Aug 1, 2002
Post#2: welcome post by eva2000 August 1, 2002
Post#3: welcome post by ATh August 6, 2002
Post#4: welcome post by Pen2 August 11, 2002
Post#5: welcome post by Kenshin2000 August 17, 2002

notice post #5 is past 5 days from the last reply

Reason for these rules, is to give fair and equal chance for all new members to be welcomed, and for all existing members to have a chance at welcoming the new members. With soooo many new members registering each day the first page of intro posts get pushed back to 2nd or more pages.

In Effect:
These above rules are in effect as of today, August 1, 2002. Posts made by members after the 'within 5 day of first post or last reply' will be removed so as to allow new member's introductions to be seen on the front page.

The above rules do not apply to Admin or moderators.

Why ?

because Admin (me) and mods can not possibly manage the size of Animeboards.com and interact with every new member in a timely manner.

For me, welcoming new members is very important as it's the only chance i get to at least interact with new members due to the size of Animeboards.com's growing community and my busy work and other behind the scenes duties in keep everything running smoothly. Hence, since the beginning of Animeboards.com, I've made it a goal to at least welcome every new member who takes the time to posts an introduction in this Introductions forum.
