Ya know it funny, I’ve joined about 3 different forums, from BBQ cookin, to smoking game meat, to building your own house, which I’ve done.
It’s funny, right off the bat, everyone else in all the other forums start sending you welcome posts and emails.
Here…....... you get nothing at all….....

Patience – we’re a good group. Sometimes it takes a while for people to notice, but we’re always glad for newcomers.

So – officially from me -

I dunno, man. Looks like your introduction topic had a number of people welcoming you, as well as your profile page, plus Steve above.

I mean, welcome! We’re a pretty eclectic group here, with a lot of different niches. In my opinion, the best way of easing into the group here is by posting projects, and documenting your work.

You made a wine-rack. Cool. Take some pictures, and post a project. If you have the inclination, start a blog series that documents how you made it, preferably with a lot of pictures.

Oh, and lookup mafe’s projects and blogs. He’s a treasure, and a great reason to stay here.

This is a big forum, lots of people coming and going. Lots of new accounts are sock puppets or spammers. BTW I’ve been on the internet for over two decades and very few forums are like you describe, there is the standard welcome email from a bot and that’s it. Posting projects will warm people up to you quicker than anything else.

TOASTER??? Dang! All I got was a lollypop !

And I gotta agree with Rick M…. Sometimes you gotta go to the mountain, rather than sit at the base and wait for it to come to you.

You’ve been here 1 day, give it a bit of time. Post some of your stuff… add some comments to others posts, folks will start seeing you pretty soon.

If you build it and post it, it will be seen and people will comment. If you want advice, ask in a post, you will get comments. (Notice the number of post in this thread.) Last I checked we do not get together around a campfire and sing kum by ya. ROFL

Welcome to LJs, but understand that we have so many fly by posts on this site that we cant keep up with them all. If you are serious about becoming a member of this online community, open the door and go out and visit the neighbors. We often have door to door salesmen (spammers) SHOW UP UNINVITED, so we are wary of those who just pop in and don’t contribute to the overall benefit of the site. SHARE with us what YOU do, because the site is all about sharing. I always feel as if I am visiting with family members when I come here and feel welcome to come at any time. JOIN in and don’t stand on the sidelines and you will feel welcome also. NUFF SAID!

Welcome aboard. 5 years ago a project stayed on the front page for most of the day some times. Many of us commented on most projects. Now, shear volume pushes most projects of the front page in a matter of hours. It is easy to get lost in the shuffle unless you post making yourself visible. I looked at every project in those days, now I get behind just trying to see all the thumbnails on the project pages. Some days, LJ seems like overwhelming woodworking.

maybe no one said thanks for joining because membership doesn’t always mean that you get a vote for valedictorian of the day
does this mean that if a forum has 35,000 members we all owe a get ” vellcumphoqueoff ” card

Welcome! Anytime I get stuck I come here. It may take an hour or two – I plan on half day cycle time checking when it’s convenient for me i.e. breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

If you ask in the middle of the night you get suggestions from Australia.

Really, really good bunch here (and Australia).

Well I am in Australia so for you it must be the middle of the night. Welcome to LJ’s, hope I didn’t wake you to say it.

I guess he went back to his “smoking game meat” forum where they were much friendlier.
