***Administrative Advisement*** "New User tab change

United States
November 6, 2015 5:05pm CST
The "New User" tab has had a modification made to it. It had originally been designed to include only members with 1 post. It has now been expanded and altered to include members who have signed up seven days ago or less. This will give new members a bit more time in the spotlight, so to speak.

It is another improvement : we get a chance to respond to discussions with no responses more than 24 hours old now.

@topffer Oh, I didn't even notice, lol. I guess they forgot to mention it to me too.

That's a great change! It was a bit frustrating only seeing posts from brand new spammers there at times.

I see this as a good thing. I think. More time to get a few extra reads and get drawn into the action. But they have to be encouraged to visit others' posts as well, as that's where most of the earnings are, long term. At east I think that's the way it works.

That's a really good idea - gives them time to find their feet.

@ChesneyM you are welcome. I do think admin messages on site and rule changes are important to share. The alerts on these should ideally reach all our message boxes automatically.

@arthurchappell....thanks for the heads up, mate :) With my regular offline job, I'm not on here as much as I'd like to be and I find some new developments can pass me by!

This will be a great help, I think. (It will also make finding spammers a lot easier!) I was thinking recently that a "Joined Today" tab might be useful (under People) but I think that this mod probably serves the purpose nearly as effectively.

Thank you, Alex, for the information! If I hadn't written that second thread, I would have still been included on that new tab, even though I might have been here a day or two longer than seven days! LOL!

@Marcyaz yes, that is the point of this change. And of course we will get to know them better.

This seems much more practical because otherwise a single comment would have removed them from the list.

I wondered what the criteria was for this tab. Then I also saw a new user who had a name similar to an experienced user and I was really confused.
