Posted:Eh?

Sending emails is not usually necessary. Joining in discussions on the forums and finding your local groups (in the events... & meet others forums) is usually the best way to get involved with people.

Just join in on a few topics and I'm sure you'll meet people soon enough.
Make yourself an into topic in the intro forum (there's a sticky at the top with a load of example details to put up).

I'm sure you'll get to know people pretty quickly if you do that.

You have some nice friendly replys in your intro thread.

I don't think people on any forum will respond to people emailing them off site very well if you don't know them already.

Just come and contribute to some threads. That is how you become apart of a community.

This is a very large site member wise. New members come and go every day, You can't expect people to jump to attention and be best bud until they get to know you and the only way that happens is by contributing.

Just be wary of threads where Bender is active, you may find your email server overloading...

If you look under Social Discussion, you'll see that you've unfortunately picked a bad time. A year ago, your experience would have been different.

I still believe in this community. PLEASE come and join us and bear with us. We need to figure out why we suddenly went dead in the last few months and kick-start our community. It's a fantastic group of people and we're quite harmless, most of us are housebroken, don't bite, and have all our shots.

Except Charles. He piddles on the rug when he gets too excited. So just make sure you walk him regularly. wink
