Welcome PM

#1 Post by AYBG » Thu Aug 27, 2009 4:14 am

Just added a MOD that automatically sends a welcome PM to new members when they first log on. I based it on lucky's NewbieMail message on the old site :D
Does this appease you, people? :p :p

Oh yes, thank you, AYBG. Good move, a pm coming from you, rather than one of us. I have been sending some pms to new members, some of whom have posted. I hope a lot more new members will feel that they can introduce themselves and become involved in the site.

Yes, more participation would be good, as there are 1,060 members and therefore a huge silent majority. Welcoming new members ought to encourage them to join in.

...and in case that doesn't get through to em I've just installed a MOD that can auto-remind and auto-cull zero posters
It can also be used to auto-remind those who have registered but not activated their accounts, those who have activated but not logged in, and those who have not visited in a specified number of days
Awesome, huh :)

Does that include times when we are away and don't access the site? How long do you have to be inactive and do you just get a reminder or a cull :twisted: :evil:
Preferred cinemas:
Central London and North London as far north as the Hampstead Everyman including Picturehouse Hackney/Notting Hill Gate - but not Wood Green and North Finchley as they are just a bit too far.

It should only apply to zero posters!
As there are 764 zero posters out of 1072 members something needs to be done about it.

Think it's a very good idea, only hope it works!

If as Steve9872 says out of 1072 members, 764 of them are zero posters, should they not be deleted from the site if they haven't posted after a certain amount of time, it used to be 14 days on the old site, can this not be re-introduced?
