The Welcome Mat
Thu Apr 20, 2017 12:05pm

As a newbie myself, I feel that I have really been welcomed with open arms onto this wonderful community. Seriously, you guys are awesome.

But, we need to explain a few more things on arrival. I know we have the Constitution and the Original Series, but I feel that newbies need to see more examples​ of stories, especially ones representative of the PPC as it is today. Jay and Acacia were awesome, but that was nearly two decades ago. Stories by board members active today would really help, in my opinion.

As well as this, I suggest a "sponsor" system to help newbies adjust. Each newbie gets a more experienced member's email address, so that their questions can be more easily and quickly answered. Plus, talking to one person is much less daunting than addressing an entire community like ours.

Lastly, a who's who would help a lot with orientation. Just who writes what and their responsibilities here would be great.

        You can check out the page on the Wiki here . It's been around for a while but it's never really taken off, which makes me sad. As for the 'more examples of stories', there's always the Other... more
