Easy way to make sure you welcome everyone
 
We really encourage welcoming new members. The entire feel of our forum depends on how warm, friendly, and approachable our members (and mods, admins, etc) are. So allow us to lead by example.
And nothing is better than a good efficient way to get things done.
So here's a quick tip to make it easy to welcome the new members, and see who you have welcomed and who you have yet to welcome aboard.

First, lets start by visiting the Member Introductions subforum:
Member Introductions, Social Announcements & Good Wishes - Aquarium Forum

Go down the list, each thread you posted on will have a checkmark that looks like this: https://www.aquariumforum.com/images/...subscribed.gif

See where they appear:
https://www.aquariumforum.com/gallery...le=2052&size=1

Those threads that don't have the checkmark mean that you have not posted there.
The pic is my actual account, I took a snapshot while doing it a few minutes ago just to show you guys and gals how I do it.

This is what you do:
Open each thread that does not have the checkmark in a new tab.
Hint: to open a link in a new tab, hold the Ctrl key when clicking the link.
So now that we have all the threads that we need to post in opened, each in a separate tab, we can paste in our favorite welcome message of the day.
The page down key on your keyboard is your friend. :)
As is Ctrl+V (paste) so you can easily paste your message and then move on to the next thread. To close a tab, Ctrl+W is your other friend, and the next tab in your list (from when you opened them all in new tabs :) ) will appear.

Page down, Ctrl+V, submit thread, Ctrl+W, rinse and repeat.

Then visit the forum category URL once more and review your progress.

Make sure to go to page 2, 3, 4, and so on till your heart is content.
Any questions, lmk, and if you have some other tips, please share.

This is the link you can get started with, don't be shy. :)

For those of us who like to click the 'welcome' button, there is no way to tell which post you have visited unless you still have some memory left ... lol. Is there a way to add something akin to the check mark for actual posts left that could clue us clueless folks in?

Actually there is. I have made this page some time ago and just used it personally, never really shared the link here on the forums. But it gives the list of top members thanked, per month. I think you will find it useful in some ways. It's not fancy, it is a quick-n-dirty job, but helpful nevertheless. On the list of things to do is make it fancier.

Hope it helps. The links you click will change color after you click them, so you will have a good way to keep track of the members you have welcomed or not.

I clicked on a link once somewhere that showed me the members I have not welcomed yet. Any clue as to there that link was? lol
