I also think an introduction thread is needed...becoz GD thread cant be an introduction thread...&  all members r not present in GD thread all time so it is impossible to know them(new member) but from introduction thread anyone can know about the new member...
But as u said there is so many imp u can do one thing...just merge with rules regulation thread (as Aadrika said) combined thread just write the links of two thread (1-Introduction & 2 -Rules & Regulation)..therefore two problems can solve (just a suggestion)
And for new member please dnt vanish after introduction

Well Astonish you have a point too, because if I think of my case , well I never went to chit chat thread but I never went to Intro thread either

I directly barged into the episode threadLOL

I think merging it with rules and regulation is a good idea

Yes I suggested Vis the same ... mostly it's the new members who've to go throught the rules... so if they're made a part of intro. Thread they're likely to.visit they'll go through them.

well i think we need a intro thread...i agree maybe many vanish after introduction but still i think we need it coz for some of members it may eel awkward to directly jump into any thread or discussion etc whereas the intro thread will provide them a platform to show that they have joined in the forum..

Well if  one say GD thread will work as into thread then I would say its little difficult.  I am member here for almost 2 years and when I find some discussion in GD going on some topic, its difficult for me to pop in when I am not interested in that topic at all. Sometimes (not always) I leave GD thread without posting anything there as I don't want to break discussion gong on there and sometimes your post when posted in between some discussion is left unnoticed by all esp newcomer.

I agree Rules and Regulation thread can be combined with introduction thread.

I think good points have been made already. Personally, I'm in favour of there being an official introduction thread because there are quite a lot of people, including myself (although I never had to do it here, having been around since it became active), who prefer to properly, formally introduce themselves on visiting a new forum. The GD thread isn't really the best substitute IMHO, mainly because... 1) a newcomer might feel like they're interrupting a discussion between senior members, and 2) due to the high rate of posts in there, the introductory message could go unnoticed, especially if it's near the bottom of a page.  

I too approve the notion of the intro thread being merged with the rules and regulations one, because this way the newcomer can automatically get acquainted with our code of conduct as well.

Definitely an intro thread is needed. otherwise unnecessary threads will come up with one liners only. rules once made, if they are changed, everyone will b confused. it is better if an intro platform exists. even if the new member disappears, atleast he/she wont be spamming the forum with an extra post. maybe he/she prefers to stay silent. i remember my own days! for first 6 months i was a silent vistor. one day i popped in to say hi. i felt scared and there was only one reply. i took another 12 months to finally come back with a second post, my first poll which became an overnight success... memebers new and silent will take tym. kya farq padta hain if they dont want to be seen? let them take their tym... and definitely the intro thread shud b there.
