Question The Adopt a New Member Project

Most of us know that we get a lot of new members here on Chaz. Some are old pros at forums but some are computer virgins and don't know about PMs, forum rules and lingo.

I thought it would be a cute idea for new members to post their names in this thread and older members could 'adopt' them. They would take responsibility for helping them get siggies installed, post pictures... that sort of thing. All the usual questions. Having someone to talk to can really help. I know I've spent a lot of time helping new members and so have others so it might be nice to have something semi-official...

So, if you are a new member and don't know what a PM, spam or OPs are feel free to let your name stand and we'll see who adopts you.

If no one steps forward to adopt by the end of the day one of the mods will come forward to answer all your questions.

Rofl @ Cadence

I think it's a good idea! I'm terrible at explaining things though, I think my newbie would figure things out on their own faster than they would with my help.

Sounds like a cute idea .

I know when I was new, I found it rather intimidating, as there was a 'usual' group, and it was hard staying because you always felt left out...

I think it's a great idea! I'll totally adopt someone .

So how exactly is it going to work...?

I think they'll just put their name on this thread and say they'd like some help. Then whoever comes first can adopt them.

I dare you to set one of em up with me....
Where was this great idea a few months ago when I came on here stumbling around, bumping into things....and the lingo , I really thought that LOL was LOTS OF LOVE, hehehe. I'm sure there are still lots of things on here that I know nothing about.

This is a really good idea Saje!
