Not much has been added lately, however, I've added a feature to include a prefix to each message in select boards.  I'll be adding more prefix categories as needed!  If you have any suggestions for prefixes, please let me know!

Also, in an attempt to cut down on potential spam accounts, I'm making a new rule that states:  New member registrations will have the period of one week to make an introduction post or risk their account being deleted.  We running a community here, and that requires participation.  Please if you haven't already done so, consider making an Introduction post so that we (the group) knows that you're not just a marketing or SPAM bot.  This policy goes into effect immediately.  (If you've already posted other places on the forum, please disregard, this notice is only for newly established accounts.)  Thank you!

That's about it!  Have fun!

What can be done is create the intro post & tag them. Some people like making their own. Since I approve members, as soon as I approve, I create the thread welcoming them. Sometimes they come back. Other times, they don't!
But I do understand having accounts & they don't post. I don't have a rule so members are welcomed back at anytime, but it sure would be nice if ALL my members posted lol

Mostly, I've implemented this rule to rule out spammers.  I have the site set up right now, so that when you become a member, the ONLY board you'll see is the Member Introductions board.  It's far easier to catch a spammer there, then have to keep an eye on on EVERY board.  Besides, it's a good etiquette to post an introduction, I believe.

We can put members into groups as well on Proboards & if HOST was bigger, I'd go that route to make it easier.
I do believe it's good etiquette to having an intro thread. Either the newbie creates one or the Staff welcoming them. Never fun going to a forum & nobody welcomes you!
