Wouldn't it just be a place to spam post just by saying welcome or hi?

By bring the comunity together and saying hello to new players and making them feel welcome, does it matter about spam? we get new players a couple a week or something and i bet if we had a introducing page they would feel more welcome by saying hello and we would say hey back
But they might not just say hello they might put a little sentence along the way with hey.

Like yeah there are like 60% new users are a old player but the 40% are new players.
but when you think about bassically every forum create nomatter what its about (gaming, cooking, minatures) they all have a introduce page there are a couple that don't have one but thats like 1 or 2 out of 10,
If we had a introduce page it would make this little comunity look more friendly and having the more experience users greet them to the forum when they new users say hey.

I think an introduction section of the forum would be pretty cool. It could perhaps be mixed with the About Me page idea. An introduction forum would be a place where new members could come and tell the community a little about themselves. Old players could post their About Me topics there so new players (and players that don't everyone) could learn about the other community members.

It could turn into a spam forum, but it could have somewhat strict moderation so people cant just post "hi im new" and thats all.
