First off, this section sounds much like what someone would post in the Hi I'm New! section or Friends Wanted! section, and it could lead to some confusion.

"Getting to know you" may give off the wrong idea. Newer members might mistake what information is right to post, and end up giving away their age, grade, and so on.

I really do think this is a neat idea, though.
i also think this thread is a good idea,but yeah,some of the little-er kids and some of the newer members might post personal info.but you could have a reminder on the section to not post personal info,that probably would work,wouldn't it?

It's a fabulous idea ,but is pratically the same as "Friends Wanted."
Someone could also get the wrong idea from the title and go in and post personal information. We'd never want WI to become unsafe because of this!
I do think tweeking the idea would make it even more marvelous and worthwhile.

The set form is exactly what I was going to suggest!! Maybe the moderators could come up with it to make sure no one gives away too much personal information. It would also make it quicker to fill out the post and quicker to check for people who share YOUR interests. Either way, I thought it was a great idea Strawberry Jam!

Great idea
but as others said, it can lead to personal info being given away.

I think it would be a great idea! The only thing it could lead to personal information to be given. Great idea!

I pretty much agree with everyone that its a good idea while it might reveal personal info. Also people might get confused on whether to post it in "Hi My name is Joe" or this new section. Great idea overall though!

Default Re: A "Getting to Know You" Section

When I joined in December, I posted my thread in "Hi My Name Is Joe." Some people would say something I may have a question about but never return to answer the question. From that I got the impression that some would only say "Hi!" just to rack up some points.

That may not be the best place to meet fellow members.
