So basically, I've noticed that new members rarely introduce themselves. I've been trying to get them to, by PMing them or commenting on their status messages, and so far I've only gotten 1 person to introduce themselves. Clearly, my strategy isn't working. This is frustrating because without introducing themselves, those new members are going to have a hard time becoming active members of the community. So, my proposal/suggestion is to create some sort of incentive for those new members to actually post an introduction. Or, at the very least, give them some sort of obvious notification that lets them know that the introduction section exists. I'm not really sure how it would work, but I think that it will definitely help the community get some new members.
