Waffler, Karl once told me something he had observed from his years as captain here. When I greeted a member who was looking in but who had not posted, he said that it is common for people to silently look in for days or even weeks before they decided to make any posts. Karl said this when I posted a welcome and tried to coax someone to post. He suggested that my attention might be unwelcome to the person who was still considering whether to jump in or not. Just let them announce themselves if and when they decide to, was his counsel.

Karl, himself, was great at attracting new members. He was so willing to help people outside Karlsforums, and he would let them know they could always get more help here.

Taddo, there's no pressure on you. Look around as long as you like.waveysmiley

I agree scholar, sometimes it is daunting in a new place.

I was OK posting here right away as I knew 2 people already but in most new places I hardly dare post!

I'm new here myself and I've found everyone to be SO friendly.

Good to see you here. :D
