    our newest Lounger!

    Wish list item #1,538

    When I see e.g. We welcome - yonatan - our newest Lounger! I rather wish that the new member name was a <font color=blue>link</font color=blue> to the profile so that I could learn a bit about them.

    Re: our newest Lounger!

    Not an unreasonable wish, but most new Loungers don't fill in their personal profile immediately, so you wouldn't see much. Besides, we'll be moving to new software sometime in the near future (see Lounge changes - help is on the way!) so there's little point in adding this feature now.

    chrisgreaves,
    Hello. As a "noob longer" i have to admit that i have had more than a few laughs at your "ginger cat /border collie" statements. What or to whom are you referencing? Or perhaps this comes out of your own thoughts? Keep up the good work, Regards PlainFred

    Fred, you need to go into Scuttlebutt more often for copious updates <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Chris is owned by a rather spoilt ginger cat called Venus

    Just a reminder to all responders that this is Lounge Matters not Scuttlebutt, even though the thread was started by the commandeer champ of The Lounge. Serious business only is called for here. Sorry to be a wet blanket... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Not at all, Al.
    You are right on the mark. So, move it on over. <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22>

    Well here's another Wicked suggestion, a Wikipedia sort of approach.
    For the first, say, four weeks, leave a new lounger's profile open to all and sundry, and we'll do our best to establish a reputation for New Loungers.
    Make them feel right at home.
    And give them an incentive to update their own profile once the four weeks is up.


    I note again with increasing concern that, yet again, my thread has been hijacked ...... <img src=/S/burnup.gif border=0 alt=burnup width=31 height=31>

    Re: our newest Lounger!

    OK.
    I'm still confused. Perhaps this belongs under "teething troubles".
    I saw around noon EST (Toronto) that SID has arrived (image attached), but a serach of all forums reveals but a single post (<post#=14,083>post 14,083</post#>) and that from 2001.

    Re: our newest Lounger!

    In the early days of this incarnation of the Lounge, users who weren't active for a long time were removed, but their posts remained behind.
    When registering a new user, the software checks that there currently is no user of the same name, it doesn't check whether there has ever been a user with the same name.
    So our newest Lounger SID most probably has nothing to do with the Sid who posted in February 2001.
    It's confusing, and for that reason we stopped purging non-active users.

    SID is probably still a lurker who seems to have just become a new lounger!

    OK.
    I'm still puzzled:
    (attached image).
    I'm told that Zymurgy35 is our newest lounger, but for him/her/it there's no entry in the Username index?

    I don't know what search you did Chris, but there certainly is a user called <!profile=Zymurgy35>Zymurgy35<!/profile>.
