There did use to be a welcome thread, but it was removed as it wasn't active enough. Now, however, with the school holidays practically upon us another one may be considered, seeing as the birthday thread's still there and is hardly used (by comparison). Don't make one though, anyone, as it'll ultimately be Nitemare's decision. I'm not sure it's necessary, personally.
