Quote from: Ron Edwards on August 31, 2007, 08:42:27 AMIt's been happening a lot recently, but I'm not sure whether it's a blip or an oncoming wave. New arrivals at the Forge often come in bunches, and sometimes a given bunch exhibits a common feature. Most of the time, it just means moderating a bit more and there's no actual problem to solve.You can see from the existing sticky that once, a common feature turned out to be a necessary repair. But I want to be sure, because I don't want stickies full of detailed instructions to fill up the first half of each forum.I'm keeping my eye on the forum. I agree that the strange wave of "hello" posts merits attention. I think it's telling that most of these posts claim to have been lurking at the Forge for a while, and then the post itself demonstrates nearly complete ignorance of the site's purpose. So the phrases are clearly stock, try-to-fit-in rituals. When I get a fuller understanding of what the posts are trying to do, and if I think it's a problem rather than a blip, I'll post a sticky or add to the existing one.Best, Ron
