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.
