Every once in a while someone I met during his or her first few days turns up as a more seasoned resident. It's always good for me to see them, and indeed, thinking about the time a former newb came to me in the Photography Studio and presented me with a rose will always make me smile. Although we residents are frequently busy or distracted we need to remember that the new person behind the avatar is probably a little confused, and that we can turn the situation around with a few friendly words.
