I think it's about time some specific rules were created for the Newcomer Center. The rules are really quite simple:
- You may create a thread for yourself if you are a new member who joined within the last month, or if you have been inactive for two or more months.
- You may not create a thread if you are returning from a ban.
- You will not create a thread notifying members that you are either leaving the site or are going to be inactive. A thread for that already exists in the Other Chat section of the forum.
- Welcome threads are for welcoming and briefly introducing new members. If you want to start a proper discussion with a member, take it to VMs or PMs. Any off topic discussion will be treated as spam and you will be warned/infracted as necessary.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to VM or PM me.
