Why doesn't this forum have a specific question you ask the newbies? Other forums I'm on all have such a standard question and people make a sort of race about it, who can ask it first. One example: What sort of socks are you wearing? I know it sounds a bit childish, but the upside is that we would be more inclined to actually respond to the welcome topics. Almost no one does it and it doesn't feel very welcoming... It could be something like: What resides at the bottom of your camera bag? (my camera bag contains for some reason a folder of a toy store, two rubber bands (one broken) and a button...) Or: What was the first picture you took with your current (most used camera)? Just to get the NOOBs starting!
