    Exclamation Before creating a thread or Replying to an introduction thread

    Hello fellow OS members.

    If you are new member of this site, a pleasant day to you. You have made the right move to create an account here and enjoy the features on this site. Welcome to Otaku-Streamers :: The Cure to your Anime fever.

    You have taken your first step on exploring the forums. Before creating a thread or replying to a post, please take your time to read the RULES.

    If you are about to create an introduction thread, please give a bit more details about yourself like:
    ♥ Age
    ♥ Your favorite anime/genre
    ♥ How did you find OS?
    ♥ What country are you from?
    ♥ Occupation or academic year level or course you're taking up (if you're a student)
    ♥ Any other information/experience that you want to share
    Please don't just write something like this.

    Hello, I'm CloverLeaf. Nice meeting you! *insert a random smiley here*
    We don't want you to reveal some private information about yourself of course. You can be creative on your introduction.

    Hello guys, I'm CloverLeaf. You can call me Fepi. Yes, it's a weird nickname taken from my real first name. I'm a Filipino but I'm currently living in Canada. I'm ___ years old. Single. *winks*

    I'm a big fan of romance anime like Kimi ni Todoke, Special A and Kaichou wa Maid-sama. I also watch a lot of Korean dramas and movies.

    Fate brought me here in OS. I found a video comment in some certain crappy anime site and it advertised this paradise. I'm glad that I found this site. Nice meeting you guys and see ya around!
    See? The latter sounds friendlier and interesting than the first one.

    It's good that you keep in touch with the people who welcomed you in your introduction thread. You can do a little chit-chat in your thread with the other members. You can ask some questions or anime recommendations to them.


    To the older members who will post on the intro threads of our new members,

    Please don't just write something like "Hello!", "Hi *insert member's name here*", "Nice meeting you!", "Welcome to OS!!" or something that goes with that. There are many other things to say or to reply. Please review RULES no. 3 and 6.

    Posts such as that isn't very welcoming. We should warmly welcome our members. You can take him/her on a "tour" in this site by introducing him to different features in this site such as the Blogs section and the Chatbox. You can also invite him to join some Groups here. Recommending the new member some anime is a good thing as well. Most of all, personalize your post to the member introducing himself or herself. Mention something they talked about, things you have in common. Overall, BE FRIENDLY.

    That's all. Thank you so much!

    Ah, why didn't I see this Thread before? xD

    Well, Finally. I already talked to Jim regarding this Issue. It's very annoying to see posts with just "HI" written as their Introduction. I mean, they expected us to give our Warm Welcome, and yet we don't even know about them or their info's. Plainly posting "Hi, I'm New Here. Nice to Meet You." is a Spam Post in My Opinion, And I was wondering how members are still welcoming them in a Normal Way which is also very annoying despite the Introduction. It made me thought that they were after the post counts. Well, I'm not the one to Criticize that, since OS is just a Friendly and Welcoming Site. 80-90% of the members here are always first to introduce themselves to the newbies and do it in a nice way, it's just a few that set a bad example(*winks*) LOL.

    The responsibility also lies in those making introductions, and I'm the talking about the Newbies and those Old Members who didn't yet Touch the Forums. You're the ones deciding what kind of first-impression you wish to give off. The way you act or behave, whether you choose to ignore This Sticky or not all decide if you'll receive a Nice Warm Welcome or not. Just because you're new doesn't mean you can get away with things. OS is not Strict. In fact, it's very Friendly, You don't get to find Welcoming and Friendly Sites like OS. We're just telling you that your introduction should be more than just "Hi or Hello". It should tell us about your taste in anime and manga, your interests and hobbies. It doesn't need to be Specific. You don't have to write a story about yourself, and there's no need to give private information if you're not willing. And it should help us understand who you are as a person. You do not have to give information that you feel is too personal but we want to get to know you as well as possible. But if you only say "Hi". Then your introduction will get chewed or Trolled LOL.

    Just Write Something, so we could Relate. After all, that's why we're here!

    Hahaha I couldnt agree more

    and WOW this is what I see after I look again into this section after some weeks that not welcoming new members. Well good thing that you guys consider this issue cause their are people who did intend to welcome new members but only say HI or WELCOME and thats all.

    Finally... At least the amount of one-liner intro's will be at a minimum.

    Now I can really get to know more about the member other than a simple 'Hi'.
    *looks back at MY intro thread... sighs
    Mines sucked sooooo bad!!!!!!!!!! T.T

    I love giving different forms of welcoming posts to those intro threads so now I'll have more pleasure in typing them.. (maybe I'll ignore those one-liner Intro's... *hate me if that sounds discriminating... but those are RULES!!!!)

    I just read this thread today and great job in suggesting these rules fepi. Some of the intros are just saying hello so this might help them to utilize their threads at its fullest. I remember posting my intro thread after 1 week of being member and if I remember it correctly it is just a normal one plain and simple. And once again great job fepi and good luck to the other moderators also.
