    Introduction Welcome from arlu1201 needs improving - Add Info for new users

    Hi

    If you go over to the Introductions Sub Forum , ( https://www.excelforum.com/hello-introduce-yourself/ ) , you will see that it is stated in small print ‘.....Introduction forum only...... If you wish to post a question, please choose the relevant sub-forum here : https://www.excelforum.com/


    But

    _1) Some overlook that and post questions there.

    _2) We are all frustrated with new OP’s not getting clued up on Rules / Posting techniques_...
    _...Currently an automatic answer is generated to anyone posting there....” Welcome to Excelforum. Be a part of large Excel community. Enjoy Learning.” That message is fine, I expect most new OPs will read that reply as they get notification of it or even see it immediately as it is usually generated very quickly_..So_..
    _.. That seems to me a great opportunity to inform the OP politely ( lots of Smilies !! :-) :-) ) of like things like this... here from me just a few suggestions for Info to add for new users: ( maybe someone else has some more suggestions ??

    Hi Allan,
    Just to bump up your post, and to show that I DO support your comments, I'm posting this :-)
    As some of you might note: introduce yourself forum is mostly managed by a bot which adds automatic "welcomm to the forum" post by arlu. It's probably better than nothing, but still: this forum either shall be managed and overseen by a real person or just simply removed. Otherwise, people who just post their questions there, receive no answer at all :-(

    I don't do it on regular basis - just time to time. And most typical way is just like here:
    https://www.excelforum.com/hello-int...o-forward.html
    But yes, some people post there merit questions. Some (2 to not exceed link limit :-P) more examples: https://www.excelforum.com/hello-int...eck-boxes.html and https://www.excelforum.com/hello-int...-as-excel.html
