Default Thanks from a new member.

hey guys , ive been trawling your forum for a while now on and off , never really posted , but just wanted to say that u guys are great , ive used other android support sites (i wont name incase i break rules) that treat noobs like scum , i actually saw someone give a noob an infraction and absolutely slate him just for posting in wrong thread, dont get me wrong forums need to be sparkly and clean but damn they were really really aggresive about it , not like here, here u always seem to get friendly help and never made to feel foolish . its almost like thier priority is to keep their preciousseesseses threads tidy rather then actually helping anyone . where as here you guys have priorities right , look after users, help eachother , and be nice about it at the same time , all the while maintaining the forums , i think as members we appreciate how hard it can be to juggle all this , dont get me wrong im sure sometimes throttling a noob would release some stress but it never comes across like that (in my experience of phandroid anyway) and i jus wanna say a big thanks for all your work it is appreciated, hope you all have a merry christmas , j x

Hello and welcome to Android Forums, giffigiff!

I moved your beautiful post to it's own thread in the introduction forum. It's a wonderful introduction. We do have a little different way of handling things here thanks to the vision of the site owner and the admin team. I hope you become a regular member and enjoy the forums.

Thank you for joining our family.

Welcome to Android Forums giffigiff!

Here at Android Forums, we strive to make anyone and everyone's stay as nice and helpful as possible.

Granted we do like to keep our threads organized and on topic but I do think that getting a member the help they need and deserve is our #1 priority here.

You shouldn't have to deal with any abusive members because of a noobish question or anything like that, otherwise that's what that shiny little report button is for.

With that being said, we're very pleased your enjoying your stay here with us and do hope you make Android Forums a regular for you to visit.

As always, if you do have any questions to ask, don't hesitate at all to ask.

DS

Thank you for the kind words. Members like you are one of the reasons the staff here volunteers their time. If you need anything feel free to ask and also if you see a member not being treated like a person hit the report button. We want to keep members feeling welcome for whatever the reason is they came here.

Welcome to the forum, we are glad to have you here. The environment here is the very reason I have always been active here and not so much at other sites where I'm a member.

Welcome out of lurker status and thanks for the kind words, giffigiff!
We were all once noobs at some point so there's no reason to treat those folks differently than the experience ones.
