Well I've finally gone into the default Welcome and Email verification templates and updated them with some information about how to better go through the registration and un-moderation process.
That done I created a new thread in the New Members forum where new members can actually reply and post about themselves to let the admins and moderators know that they are there and are real people and not an evil spam bot. (This explained in the email verification and welcome emails!)
Things are starting to seem easier to understand now I hope!
After all that I've also taken a look at the slightly aged FAQ and I've noticed a few things that need updating. Changes have been made in the community that need to be clarified and some information that is no longer valid. (Still working on this. There is a lot of information that can go in the FAQ!)
I'm hoping that this will make PGD better and not worse as a result. Please let us know what you think about all of this. We are really trying to make PGD much more welcoming and inviting to new members.
