General chatter - Please Pay It Forward

I have a favor to ask. For those of you who have benefited from how wonderful this website is and remember what it was like to come here feeling so uncertain and fed-up yet so hopeful, please take a minute, if you have it, on each day that you come here and go to introductions and welcome a newbie or a returning member who has taken that step to trust us with their story. Just saying welcome can make a newbie or returning member, many who don't have outside support, feel supported and like they belong here. If you can add a few personal words responding to their individual circumstances, even better. Please don't forget what it was like, and pay it forward if you can. Thanks to all who respond! :)

Thank you for the reminder! I haven't been a common participant of the introductions threads in the past; I will definitely try to change this.

How wonderful! You know, I didn't expect anyone to respond here, just (hopefully) in Introductions, but it's really nice to get the feedback! It's so good to know people want to get involved! Thank you!

aw wow that's lovely Jacqui!
I actually remember the first time I posted on this site, and how excited I was to get a couple of replies, feel guilty now that I haven't taken part in welcoming newbies!
off to intros I go :)

Thanks so much, chickies! You're making a difference! :yes:

Hoping some more people will get involved. Some newbies never get more than one reply to their introductions, and they may not realize that we are a much friendlier and supportive group than that. If you can go to Introductions whenever you have time and say hello to and welcome just one person, especially someone who doesn't have many replies, that would be great! Thanks!

I thought it might be a good time to bump this up again! Thanks to those who respond!

Will definitely do so, thanks for the reminder.
I forget sometimes how nice I felt when people replied to my introduction thread :)
