How do we know the user is New? It not like there’s a side note saying first post, couldn’t this cause issues if the new poster finds the message keeps getting added to lots of there initial posts, annoy them and stop them coming back?

Just a thought...

Hi Nicole,

You have to look at the number of posts they've made, and their Reputation points. If the number of posts is just one then they're new. If you see that they already have a reputation point, then most likely someone has already greeted them somewhere in the same thread they posted in.

Hope that helps,

Lexxi

Ok thanks for the info, so who gives the reputation points? Does that happen automatically when the link is added?

@Nicole70
Dear Nicole:
The reputation-applaud point is not automatic, it must be added by the "Greeter" 
All members with more than 50 quality posts (no post padding) can give reputation-applaud points.

If have more questions please ask.
HUGS,
Danielle

Welcome to Susan's Samantha! You should start your own thread in the Introductions forum and give us a little information about yourself, then ask as many questions as you need to. There is a great amount of knowledge and experience on this forum, and the members are only too happy to help.

Please read through these helpful instructions below and I for one will be looking for your posts!!

Dear Aoi Nomel
    First, I wish to Officially Welcome YOU to Susan's Place.

    As you are certainly aware you can share with others and involve yourself with some give and take with other like-minded members.  When frustrated or if you have successes you can share it here if you wish and receive support from others and offer support to others. ....
     ***There is a very good chance that you might find that you will make some new like-minded friends here. 

    Please come in and continue to be involved at your own pace.   Other members will be along shortly to give you their thoughts about your questions and concerns that you mentioned in your very first posting.

    Also, only if you feel free to... please tell all of us more about yourself so that we can better respond and communicate with you regarding what brought you here to the forums and where you are in your transition journey.
