    Default Sticky for Welcome to this page?

    I notice that there are always people being directed to BT via a search engine. Duh how else would people get here, I know. But when they hit the MS page it might be nice to have a more personal greeting. Whenever I got to a new site and it has a 'please read this first' I usually look at the first couple of pages, especially if it is right there near the top. And don't say Gary get a life!

    What do you think?

    Absolutely!!! Who was it who used to do that for us at BT?

    It sounds good to me but there's one problem, or at least there was in the past. A number of people raised objections about having too many stickies on the top of the page. You have to scroll down past all of them every time you come here and just want to find the latest posts.

    It has been pointed out that they can click in various ways to reach the latest posts. We can see if this idea goes over this time though.

    Sally, I don't recall anyone at BT ever doing a Welcome sticky or thread of any kind but my memory is like a sieve. Was there a Brenda? I remember a Vikki (spelling?) who used to do Happy Birthday threads.

    We didn't have a Welcome sticky, but there was a Welcome thread. Bou (?) started it. Then she had difficulty getting on and I started doing it until I left. The first post was a welcome. The 2nd (?) was a short tutorial about certain posting features (don't remember what).

    I remember bou--still don't remember the thread but I'm sure there must have been one because others remember it.

    I have no preference about stickies. I think that the people who don't want too many of them have a point but on the other hand there is some information that is useful to have coming right at you as you see this page.

    As I said the thread wasn't a stickie. It was a periodic one like the current ChitChat. In those days we'd see many more newbies.

    Perhaps when we see a new name who signed up recently, whoever sees the newbie first can start a thread "Welcome, _____" Then others can join in.
