Welcome to the welcome center!

Welcome to Atheist Nexus!

Nexus has many ways for members to be involved, make friends, learn, and express yourself.   The welcome center is composed of Nexus volunteers, sort of like greeters at your favorite store.

 

Get to know people with similar interests by searching on Groups.  Use the search box on the Groups page, or browse through the many pages of groups, to see what's there.  There are Nexus groups for many states, cities, countries, personal expression, hobbies, and many other groups.  Get to know people based on what you enjoy, or what you have in common with others.

 

Ongoing forum discussions are more general interest than the groups.

MeetupTo find local atheist groups and make friends or chat, check out Meetup.com.  (note, Meetup is not connected to AN).  Join Meetup and search on a key word, such as atheist, skeptic, freethought, to find a group.

Support Nexus by visiting Amazon.com through Nexus (see the Amazon box on the right).  Buying from Amazon via the Nexus site does not increase your cost, but results in a small donation going to Nexus.

Terms of service helps you know the "rules".  You can also find the TOS on the bottom right of the main screen.

The right sidebar shows recent posting activities and discussions by Nexus members.  Click on "more" at the bottom for additional activities.

 

If you have general questions about Nexus, how to find what you want, or other questions, feel free to ask me or another volunteer member of the Welcome center!

Enjoy!

Joan,

If you are the creator of the group, you can promote someone to an administrator by going to the "Options" button near the top.  Then go to "Manage group members".  Click on the box by the members name, then go to the box that says "Please select one or more members".  Click on Promote to Administrator".  

If you are not the creator of the group, it won't be possible.  You can be made an administrator by appealing to Br. Richard, but that can be a long process, I think he has other fish to fry.  If the creator of the group is still active, you can go to them and ask to be made and administrator, but you cant be made into the creator.  

Let me know if this doesn't help!

OK, I give up, I have looked everywhere to redefine administrators of my group.

Thanks very much! : )

Steph, that sounds like a good idea.  I've seen your welcomes, that's great!  I think each of us have something to contribute.

I've been reaching out to the new members. I think I'll start using a gif to make it more colorful.

One way to help people know about Nexus is to highlight the info in the text box above, copy it, and paste it into new member's comment section.  That will show up as below (and is the same as the text box above):

Get to know people with similar interests by searching on Groups.  Use the search box on the Groups page, or browse through the many pages of groups, to see what's there.  There are Nexus groups for various states, cities, countries, ideas of personal expression, hobbies, and many other groups.  Get to know people based on what you enjoy, or what you have in common with others.

 

Ongoing forum discussions are of more general interest than the groups.  Switch toforum categories for a somewhat organized format.

 

MeetupTo find local groups and make friends or chat, Meetup.com is a great place to locate groups or start one.  (note, Meetup is not connected to AN).  Join Meetup and search on a key word, such as atheist, atheism, skeptics, freethought, to see if there is a local group.

I need to get myself in gear and do more welcoming as well as get back into the topics that I am most interested in.  That would be more productive than what I've been doing.  I go through periods of being enthused and periods of being not-enthused, just like others do.

Yeah - I've been welcoming the new Texas members -- might think about branching out now that I'm not quite as pressed for time.

seems like you have been helping!  Thanks for that!
