can I just say how grateful I am that someone finally explained the potato thing.......I always wondered what it was all about. A critical piece of information for new and not so new newbies!

(and I never introduced myself either, I never even noticed this section for about a year :oops: )

I have often thought we should have a "welcome wagon" team who send a quick pm to all the new members, just to say hi and invite them to feel free to post in any of the threads. We could share the job around so each of us only had to do it once every few weeks to all the new members for that day iykwim?

So often I look at the members list (OMG I need to get out of the house more!) just for something to do and notice there are tonnes of members who never post! Considering you can lurk without becoming a member (I think?), I wonder if these members just got shy or chickened out. Maybe if they had a friendly welcome pm, they would feel more comfortable to chime in? :)

Here's a link to a little bit of info about storking.

Here's a thread that says who is storking who.

And here is a thread for people who want to be a storker or want to get a storker.

Hope that helps!

Hi, I realise that this thread is really old...but those links don't work. :)

Any chance that someone can re-link?
