    What was your first thought when you saw a Welcome to NUF message on your profile page? Mine was like, 'Huh, their bots seem nice.'. Spoiler alert: they weren't bots sadly XD

    Same like, do you just go profile-hopping when bored? It's crazy to think about sometimes

    Welcome message? I was greeted by two competing, crazed women chasing after me with knives while playing stabby-stab with each other!
    To think I would find myself right among the crazies not long after I became active...

    Made me feel right at home. :blobmelt:

    I got greeted... said thank you then ignored nuf for a whole year. I only got active after a year because I only made an account for the reading list in the first place.

    I usually find people in two ways: the welcome thread and the new profile posts.
    After seeing unfamiliar names, noticing their message count which is usually low or 0, I check their profile pages to see if it's empty then just say hello and welcome.

    It's scary when people are bored aren't they? Suddenly they just try to find empty houses and then try to fill them in. What psychos... /j

    Oh, I thought it was a bot too when I was first welcomed~

    Then I got a 2nd welcome and figured there wouldn't be two welcoming bots, so I realized they were real users~
    Back when I used to do welcomes, I used to just hop around threads like normal. If I saw anyone with a particularly low message count, I looked at their profile... If it was empty, I welcomed them to NUF~

    It wasn't super hard tbh, it was something that happened kinda naturally as I browsed threads~
    Oh my... I had forgotten that had happened... That was a fun re-read~

    Did feel threatened by giants so if i had to rate welcome's by NUF members 7/10 :] (-3 because of the truama the members gave me :blobunamused:)

    I'm friendly that way xD
    It's usually coincidences. If you open new posts and suddenly the welcome thread is on the list or if you check new profile posts and see a random name. It doesn't even take that much effort. I don't even know how I got into the welcoming committee... it just happened? :blobrofl:

    AM I BRAINWASHED :blobfrowning:

    @otaku31 apparently it was fun when the two of them decided it was time to stab each other in front of a newcomer
