You have been here so long that you probably forgot that you get an automatic response when you become a noob, that suggests you should say hello.

That and the fact that a lot of us are now cashing in on the great deals on the 2013's as Ram gets ready for the 2014's, that we are all flooding the sight.

I would suspect that the same volume of people showed up when the 2012's were hot, or perhaps like what you said, Shawn is just messing with your head?!?

To my knowledge, there is no such thing as an automatic response here on the Z. All the posts are created by individual members. It's one of the things that makes the Z so great. We're not a bunch of bots, we're all real people with real experiences that we don't mind sharing with others.

Perhaps there is something in the water Yankee... LOL every now and then there is a rush on the newbie section LOL

We don't do automated responses when members start newbie check in threads, the people that respond are doing so in an effort to be friendly and welcoming.

The responses are usually the same from the same people and quite often don't answer the question posed. I think it might show some real warmth if it was not always the same verbatim answer. Just saying. I have been here nearly 4 years and still think it's great site
but miss some of the folks that made great contributions and all of a sudden went missing Glad to see Ramtec back.

That is what happens when I don't do my daily duties of welcoming all the new members for a couple of days!! We have over 2000 people register every month and 66% of those become active members on the forum. I believe becoming active involves making at least one post. There is roughly 925 posts per day on the forum.

Nothing automated here we visit every new intro thread and greet them as well as in their personal profile.

Yes it usually is the same people mostly Member Relation Managers as that is part of the duties to the forum and a few members who do it ona regular basis. I personally will try to point the individual in the right direction to get an answer to their question but if someone has previously offered some advice on where to post their question, I just leave my greeting and move on. As the intro threads are really not for answering issues that is what all the specific sub-forums are for.

The questions posted in the Newbie section are [often] not answered because its not the section to ask.

I agree with the other point you make.

Cheers.
