Hello There, Guest!  LoginRegister
Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

Introduction forums?
Another site I work with has a "new members" forum where people can introduce themselves to the community and make friends easier once they join. Just a suggestion :3

Edit: First post by a non admin! I'm sorry I couldn't resist! D:

RE: Introduction forums?
Neat idea! Most forums I join just have a single thread for introductions.

RE: Introduction forums?
A lot of forums carry this feature. Its good and almost always brings question from other users: "Where is the good-bye forum? I wish to say good bye to people because I am going off to war" (or some other blatant reason).

Is the bio of your profile not good enough as an introduction? If you like what a new user posted (I dunno, he has like 1 - 10 posts), then check his bio in his profile, if he decided to fill it in for other people to know them.

Seems I rant more than so, but I do have experience from administrating my own forums for over 10 years. =P

PS: This just gave me an idea for my bio.
