I copied the following from the Newbie Welcome Party: I really appreciate your thoughts and ideas. Bringing up ideas helps to support improvement. To your suggestions: 1. WNU is THE place to introduce yourself. Either you can post a new thread or you join one of the social threads and say "hi". It's up to every new member. 2. What do you mean about "general layout"? Something like a "map of the boards"? Since we moved only a few weeks ago, we are working on a new map already. It's just a question of days when it's up again. 3. Random thoughts can be posted in this thread - or you create a new thread for it. 4. It's sad to hear that adoptions didn't work for you. What were the reasons? What are your suggestion? What can we change? I'm really interested in seeing your view of things. If we can make adoptions better, than I'm all for it. Please, continue here (and not in the Newbie Welcome Party). This way we have everything in one place. Thanks.
