First let me say that Blender is AMAZING, love it, can't get enough of it... I spent like $100+ on books in the last few weeks, and am looking forward to rendering/animating/python scripting and creating games with it.
On another note, I just thought I'd make a quick suggestion for new forum topics if you please.
"Welcome Area" - let new users to the community introduce themselves
"showcase" - a place for people to showcase their stills/animations or games
Edit - blenderartists.org has forums for showcasing your work
I totally support this ideas especially about the place for people to showcase their stills/animations or games.
Imho it will bring more attention to blender.

I would also like to see a welcome thread added to this forum. Most of the other forums I browse have this function and it helps to get to know someone first before you rely on any advise they offer.
I have to support this idea of a welcoming topic so new users (like me
) can introduce themselves.
A lot of others boards have this feature.
As mentioned here
we have two sets of forums - the ones at blenderartists.org for artists and user support, the ones here at blender.org for Blender development issues.
