We don't want to discourage anyone from welcoming our new members, in fact we really appreciate that you do, however we've had more than one member use these "welcomes" to pad their post counts. Of course the life blood of any good forum are informative, helpful, and interesting posts. Certainly the welcomes are interesting to the people being greeted however it gets a little old when people coming here see scores of welcome posts instead of information about Jeeps, or even pictures of half naked girls. To help close up this little post count loophole we have turned off post count incrementation for the "New Member Introduction" forum. Hopefully you read this before sending welcomes to the last 100 people to join the site.
