    how could one imagine a post without introduction category?... I mean it's very difficult to imagine when you complete a subcategory without a category.

    This is not a chit-chat forum, it’s a place to ask and answer questions. For this, it isn’t necessary to introduce yourself because it is irrelevant for the subject. If you desperately do want to introduce yourself then use the central thread for this – maybe somebody cares to read it.

    hmm.. a little hasty from a mod LOL

    either way i see both sides... but as a community, why cant there be inclusion to get to know one another through some sort of chit chat catagory? it doesnt have to count towards post count or anything, just to meet people.. the "spam games" forum catagory is not needed, cuz that stuff is indeed rubbish and not really necessary... but an extra place even if its just as simple as an "off topic" forum would be fantastic..

    There is such a category but you must have been active for 3 months and have over 50 posts to have access to said category.

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE

    Look at the posts in the central introduction thread (and ignore the replies from the senior members) Ė the people there sign up, have a one figure amount of posts and never come back again and participate (despite their promises). So, what gives?

    Iím a ďsocial puristĒ (if this is even a term one can use) Ė Iím not a small-talk person, Iím direct in the expression of my opinion sometimes, I often find trivial chit-chat strange if it comes from someone I donít know (those who know me usually like me and those who donít know me think Iím distant until they get to know me), and my view is that you come here, contribute, and you will automatically get acquainted along the way. And if you donít contribute regularly then who you are and what you do is irrelevant for most of the rest of the community (at least for me, that is, and I just assume for others, too).

    So, there you go. Ka-ching, two cents from me.
