I have been thinking about this recently and thought I would share.
When I first joined Puff I thought it was so cool that there was a section (New Puffer Fish Forum) to introduce myself. Right off the bat I got some good interaction with the current members and it made me excited to be involved with this site. I have from time to time entered back into that small pond to welcome new members, although I will admit I have not done it enough.
There seems to be roughly the same group of guys that faithfully post there and to those BOTL - I salute you! I have also noticed more interaction from the mods and "older" members of the forum there as well. I think this is very important. It helps new Puffers feel comfortable and excited as they take their first "swims" here!
So to those of you who faithfully greet the new arrivals - Thanks and keep up the good work. And to those of you who rarely enter there (or have maybe forgotten about it as I have) I challenge you to consider dropping in and posting a simple hello!
I think this is an awesome forum and I believe it is the most supportive/friendly one I have ever been apart of. I am excited to see it get even better this year!
