Redirection for new members
« on: April 06, 2012, 09:32:25 am »
Hi

I find strange that there are some people known to the rest of the forum , yet didn't introduced yet.After they gain some time, they decide to introduce just because they noticed the number of other people who did so.

In order to avoid that , i need aero or xarwin to create a system @ the site.So after a member registered , when he logs in for the FIRST time , he will be automaticly redirected to "start a new topic" on Introduce.I request this , because ...maybe that topic isn't getting in people's eyes

I support this idea. It is noticed that members who introduced tend to be more active. Others are mainly reply-less-than-ten-times-then-gone-forever.

But they just could "cancel" the "auto intro" or whatever this possible system is called, of course unless there's a rule or smth that makes you introduce yourself before posting another thing in the forum.
I liked the idea Black, BUT there are things we have to think about, like even if people introduce themselves it doesn't mean that they'll be active or not, it would be just a condition to
... reply-less-than-ten-times-then-gone-forever.

Sorry, but i don't really see the point in trying to make more people introduce.
As for me, I have played TCO the first time about 3 years ago and since then, i played throuh every major and most smaller realeases (because this is definitly the most awesome WC3-Project ever)
BUT if i remember correctly, this is only my third post within the forum and no, i haven't introduced myself.

Reasons:
 - I mostly use this forum to keep myself updated on the progress of the campaign and possible future developments. (Does not require posting)
 - Other reasons to enter the forum are to get help, if you are stuck with some riddle or another problem. In this case the search function usually delivers the proper answer. So again no reason to post.

Point is, only people who have the dedication to actually take a bigger part in the creation of the campaign, are introducing und also better known.
For people who only want to ask a question in the Help-Masterthread, an Introduction would be useless, if not spam.

So I think its better to leave it the way it is. If people are here more often, they will eventually introduce and the others will vanish as fast as they appeared :)

mfg TTH

PS: The only way this would make sense, is if Aero is trying to find out, how players find out about his campaign. For that reason the introduction of people might be interesting, although an HowDidYouFindTCO-Masterthread would serve this purpose much better

Greetings,

So basically, in real life, that would mean something like this: You meet up with somebody who you haven't known of, you meet him/her for, say, 6 months, and THEN you decide to tell him/her your name.

Aww for goodness' sake, you're SO smart, brother! That's definitely how it should work!

And I just love it how all these kind of people come here to the forums almost ONLY to say how great the campaign is (and to look for help of course). Yeah, it is, but learn to say that in the PROPER place.

Says someone who hasn't introduced himself plus have changed his name million of times.

But yeah, I could change the Introduce topic to the top of the page to get more attention. That is what I can do, rest is up to Xarwin who I believe won't do anything.

So will anything be done ? If no then I guess this topic is going to fade into oblivion, just like many other threads.

Yes   [-), but certainly some people won't like this decision.

Only Xarwin can do things like this.

I can do the campaign but not the website. Two different things.
