New member welcome pack?

Just a suggestion Dave/Aido but when a new member registers could they automatically receive an email explaining how to upload pics, send PMs etc etc as it's something that gets asked about again and again?

All thats needed is a 'Prominant FAQ'....every forum could have that as a 'sticky post'.

Its not a problem to upload Images here Kris by the browse..simples.

New members are not full members for a certain amount of time, and its those restrictions that cause a new user to ask.

You'd still get lots of people who wouldn't read it :lol:

Rather than a sticky in the forum list, better to have it in a side bar on the left, like on the UBC Botanical Garden Forums.

I'd put a link in the EMail - to an FAQ or a Thread - easy enough to change that, over time, rather than having to adjust the Email if anything changes
