> you don't really make it clear that they aren't being shunted off to a Newbie board ... because they aren't welcome on the Social Board. Perhaps you should also mention that they'll get a wider range of support and friendship, and be warmly welcomed, on the Social Board.

Good point, let me make take care of that...

That's certainly not the idea. Plus, nobody will stay a newbie...

> I notice on the newbies board there is a list of current newbies. Have all of these posters posted at least once on another board or did you just pull the list from those that have registered and received a user name? (Side note - I also noticed that sdjeff is included on the list. New poster vs. new user name?)

They're newly registered posters (posting names). They may or may not have posted yet.

> Also, what is the criteria for being considered a newbie? Is it length of time registered, number of posts, or something else? Once the poster does not meet the criteria, will he or she be notified and no longer able to post on the newbie board?
>All Done

My idea is that they would just work their way up the list and then "graduate". There are 400 on the list, and about 85 new registrations per week (right now), so that gives them about a month. I hadn't thought of a notification, hmm...
