How do you feel about the new update to Discourse?


im talking about these things, incase you don’t know discourse had an update (I presume it was earlier today) that made it so when a user posts for the first time or makes a post when they haven’t done so in a long time (like when it’s a year between their last post and new post). Personally I don’t really like these it defeats the purpose of the Introductions category, but I want to know what you guys think about it as a whole.

(FYI Mac doesn’t know how to disable these things so don’t expect them to go away immediately.)



They’re annoying, but at the same time it’s kinda neat seeing all these new people using the forums, and knowing they’re actually new people lol





Automated calls to action like “let’s welcome them to our community!” might lead to readability issues even more than those … things themselves in serious threads. I agree we already have a Introductions section, no need to spam that all over the forums.
