This may come as a sad news but after much contemplation I have decided to scrap the "Introduction" forum. I know it serves as a good platform for newbies to introduce themselves but overall I feel it does not serve any concrete purpose. I believe the creation of the introductory forum is deviating the main forum from it's original goal - a platform to share quality information that others will find useful. Since it's inception the Introduction forum has witnessed over 400 topics and 2500 replies. But does any of it's content serve any purpose to the general visitor? That's my concern. And not to mention the time spent by members on the forum. Don't you think it's a waste of resources and time? Regarding counter view that newbies need a place to introduce, I would like to state that this is not unlike other forums where you need to go though a formal introduction or warming up before participating in the forums. Each and every member, new or old, is treated with due respect and warmth here, as you'll find looking at the posts. Looking forward to your views.
