Hi, I think new generations of internet are alien to forum software. Forums are too complicated for them. Many people register to my forum, but.. They do nothing, I suspect they don't familiar with technical things of forum, ie: uploading avatar, creating thread, replying post, adding signature etc.
I found it's very interesting if WSC has some kind of guidance to new users as a message box. For example, newly registered members will be guided to:
1. uploading the avatar
2. creating new thread
3. replying thread
4. while they are in editor (number 2 and 3), there will be message box, showing them how to upload an image, creating poll, adding smilies etc..
And I think this message boxes can be part of User Milestone system.
