The Newest Member Feature here

With the site making the executive decision to temporarily stop welcoming new members they made a pretty bold statement that the integrity of the site was extremely important and they were willing to take whatever steps necessary to protect that. From what I have seen many support this decision but I’m sure there are plenty who aren’t happy, they are probably the ones that missed the deadline to sign up.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about the new member feature at all. Truth be told I actually think it is a great idea that showcases a new member and gives them an opportunity to be seen by all on the page at that particular moment.

As shared the feature is on a brief hiatus while the site gets better prepared to handle the influx of new members, hopefully it comes back because I think it has some real benefit here.

I think it would be cool to have a "Writer of the Day" or something, which would be somebody who wrote something within the last 24 hours (make sure the person is active)

BNelson - Great idea, I like it. SimeyC has already started a list of potential improvements, maybe he can add this to his list?

Well, it looks like the memberships are back, and hopefully we will see the new members coming in.

I like the feature too, and I think now it is back to being open for all.
