I can't remember do you get an automatic welcome PM here? If not I think they are a nice and useful feature. I see a lot of forums just waste them saying "welcome to the forum" which most people ignore but I think they can be used rather effectively to give a basic introduction to "getting started with Enigma". It could be used to give a short explanation of what Enigma and the community is, how to start using Enigma and some useful links.

EDIT: Yes the wiki will be fine to link to, but maybe also with a little bit of a short message :)

Good point. We'll probably set something up like that when ENIGMA's Windows installer is tailored to beginners.

We can have a wiki page that provides a fairly full introduction for beginners. Our wiki isn't just for explaining individual components, it's for general documentation, and can house tutorials and instructions.

Bump  ;D

I think this would be fine to implement now. I can't see it doing any harm anyway :)

Heh, don't worry, Griggs, I'm working on it. The coercer's a piece of shit, and so I'm replacing it before I can allow switching odd types.
