How about a new 'Forum' - 36 replies
What do you LumberJocks think about starting a new ‘Forum’ for those that are first starting out in woodworking? It might be called ‘Woodworking 101’. When I welcome new members, it seems that a lot of them say that they are just starting woodworking and want to learn more. The first thought that comes to mind is safety, ...

New member adds - 22 replies
I like to welcome new members. I do not welcome all new members, just the ones that I think are real woodworkers. I want to apologize to those real woodworkers that live in the New York area. I have found that 90% of the time, when I see ‘New York’ or ‘usa’ under their name, they have become members just to sell their pro...

I like to welcome new members, and each time I do, it adds to my number of post, which is now over 4000. To some this might look like I am a very active member making all of these great comments. If possible, I would like the number of post not shown for me. What do you other LumberJocks think, keep showing the post or do away with it? Or what?

Over 800 new members in 3 days - 15 replies
I like to welcome new members to LumberJocks. I enjoy reading what they have to say. In the three days that this site has been reopened to new members there has been over 800 new members.

Who Do You Welcome As A New Member? - 15 replies
I like to welcome new members. Lately there has been a few new members that do not care about woodworking, but only want to push their product or non-woodworking business. So now, when I view the new member list, if there is not a picture, or comment about themselves I do not make a welcome. I know that I am going to miss a few that just want to...
