    Default August Challenge - Welcome a 'Newbie'

    Well - as today is a new month, we have a new challenge !!!


    (cant you feel my enthusiasm? )


    So I am not sure if you all remember your nervousness at joining a forum for the first time - but I do.

    I always was anxious at asking questions and hoped nobody told me how stupid I was for doing the wrong thing. So - this month, we have 'Welcome a Newbie' month.

    Your challenge - should you choose to accept it - is to do a post or a pm to a new member each day for a month.

    A New Member is classified (loosely) as anyone with under 500 posts. (I know there are many members who are not exactly 'new' with less than 500 posts - but they possibly dont know a lot of people, and even if they do ... its lovely to have that attention anyway.

    So ... post in here each day that you have managed to welcome, or link a thread/be generally helpful and supportive to a new member
