Hmm. Funny idea

The easyest way is to send them a mail, but if they not accept that, i understand you.

1) I would create a group and called it "New users"

2) Create the block, pages you want to show them

3) Allow only "New users" to see the content.

4) Search new users in the admin-sektion and add them to the "New users" group.

It could be done easyer through phpmyadmin if you have many users.

oh, I see
nice suggestion, but I think I explained it wrong

when I said users, I was referring to visitors, not registered users

and my objective here doing this, is to achieve more registered users! becouse I have over 15K unique visits per day and less than 50 registrations per day

I think what I need to do is to work with the sessions in some way, but don't have a clue to what to see or what to modify :(

I see.

Try one of the quotes modules.
Make the module/block visible for anonymous but not for registered users.
Add some quotes.


The easy way :
Create a block with custom content and make it visible for anonymous but not for registered users.
That will show static content to anonymous users.

Another way:
Create a block with custom content (HTML) and make it visible for anonymous but not for registered users.
Add the script from here
(change only quote 1, quote 2 or add some more if you need so)


Quote:

<script language="JavaScript">
var Quotation=new Array() // do not change this!
Quotation[0] = "Quote 1";
Quotation[1] = "Quote 2";
Quotation[2] = "Quote 3";

var Q = Quotation.length;
var whichQuotation=Math.round(Math.random()*(Q-1));
function showQuotation(){document.write(Quotation[whichQuotation]);}
showQuotation();
</script>

The clue here is blocks and permissions, so have a look at Mastop Goto also... Would perhaps make a difference... :)
