There will be just one new thread for new users. And it will probably be just that unfortunately, but it's better than before when we had an entire forum that was just that...

We'll still mod out any spam from them.

I really don't understand why anyone would have a problem with the name "Love Boat" going, can understand not liking the new name, because well that's a hard problem but alas.


Because it's a good name, I think anyway. I like the fact it's not serious, more light-hearted.

So is this a way to give mods more things to do around here? Because if you're gonna sort out spam from new users in a new users introduction thread then you have your work cut out for you.

Yeah it's really minor point, not even part of the reason directly. Was just an added bonus of having group threads in that new users might find a group the identify with.

I think we all agreed in the mod forum not to re-introduce SpamFest '09 AKA the New Users forum...

Not in any new users thread that might exist, just in the forum in general, as we already do.

I don't like the way how you guys have just announced this and don't seem like you're open to the ideas we're giving. I know you're the mods but we should be able to have a solid say too, and it's pretty obvious most here don't like the idea...
But at the same time we are basing those changes from the feedback we got from people here on the survey we had a few months ago

And whatever we do we will never get 100% of people happy.

What name would you suggest for this section bearing in mind it won't just be about Love Boats. If people don't like community then nothing stops you to actually suggest an alternative.

As Niall said there will only 1 thread for newbie to introduce themselves and that will be a sticky.

But aren't they still love boats, really? Even if it's a group? It would essentially be a love boat for new users to hang out in and feel welcome, no?

You guys need to chill and stop acting like people are stepping on your peen.
You asked for feedback, people don't like the name.
