As the title says, I have noticed some members have been posting their intros in other members introductions. I think we should have a note up the top of the Introductions forum telling to create your own intro and not to post in others intros etc.

One example: (Not trying to intimidate the member) http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/137099/hello/

This often happens, usually by Members who are not familiar with the technical aspect of forum posting. I am not sure that having a note about this would be of much help, and it is quite easy to include both posters in a welcome reply.
Cheers,

Additionally if by chance there is a question or issue in the second post. Which by the way is not a rampant issue. One of the moderators can split the post off into it's own post and address the issue. I don't feel it's a major enough issue to warrant cluttering up the forum with more 'notes'. However we do thank you for the thought and contribution of your idea.
