If we have a set of rules or guidelines like have been put forward to bring us inline with whats the done thing in other forums.
Then I think we should have another an "Introduced Yourself" channel under a separate title. Where new members if they liked could go to get start posting etc. The rules could be a Sticky at the top.
I think this has brought up before and is whats is done in alot forums and works quite well.
Anyway just and idea.....

It would be good to have just name, age, where yer from, work as, number of years playing, what you play, how you found out about chordie.
this is possible by the use of moderaters moderating it and taking out anything that is just chat.
this could be done anytime as long as folk dont get too annoyed if they say hello to someone then find their post has been taken out. So you could have INTRODUCE YOURSELF thread and another SAY HELLO TO THE FORUM thread.
