Why don't most people greet newcomers?

I've always wondered what's up with that... I'm not complaining, I just see a lot of new guys' threads with hundreds of views and 2, 3 responses at most... I think if at least half of the people that check those threads said a simple ''Hello'' or ''Welcome'' people would feel a lot more ''at home''...

Maybe it's just my nature, being from Portugal, we're used to being welcoming and warm to visitors (most of the time).. I know most of you are from the US and you're a lot more used to not even knowing or talking to the person who lives next door but we're all ''friends'' here, united by the same brand/chassis code.. We should be warmer to the new guys.. just my 2 cents though! Not trying to change anything.

Who are you?

Edit: and I guess the genuine warmth Solidjake showed you in your welcome thread wasn't good enough for you so you had to come into the OT, complain about it, and waste our precious time to click in here and read this?

silly noob

Is south america an actual continent? Or just the southern part of the american continent? Should've have payed attention in geography class haha I feel like an idiot now.

Edit: it is, I checked. I guess it one of those things you learn and forget haha

Maybe it's just something americans made up so they didn't have to be in the same continent as Mexico?

You came to OT to complain about not being welcomed?



This will go well for you.

We don't even welcome people from Gen E46 let alone other sites.

No, I didn't.. what makes you think that I did?

What do you mean other sites? I assume most people here don't think of themselves as ''visitors''
