I need help from the Foo regulars...

I'm looking for a few people to help welcome new members to the forums. I noticed quite a few of the threads in the introductions forum have no replies and I don't have time to personaly welcome each member to the forums.

Are any of you guys up to welcoming new members to the site? If you see any threads that have zero replies after a day or two, can you bump them up to the top with a friendly welcome? Quite a few threads started in the introductions forum should be placed elsewhere, if you see any, report the post to a mod, and we will move it to where more forum members can help out.

Into forum: http://www.bikeforums.net/introductions/

I'd also be glad to check in there every day or so and give a welcome to the newbies. I have done that from time to time in the past anyway. No problem Joe.

Cool! I think an active welcome team will keep the new members posting and happy. I picked you guys becouse I know the Foosters are the most addicted to this site.

Nah, just a bit schizoid. There's nice Stacey that hangs in Foo and everywhere else, then there's evil Stacey who hangs in P&R and has a blue star.

Problem is, I can never tell which one is in control

Looks like the freakin' Welcome Wagon just came to town. I think as long as we don't start asking them "Have you thought about your relationship with God today?" We'll be ok.

Still a lot of 0-replies on page 2 and 3...
