:abn: Hello Harry Potter Fan,

This is a great reminder for everyone. Do you remember me? I just joined a few days ago and if it hadn't been for your very kind words to me, I would have felt a little less welcome. It often takes someone like you to remind the other members to take the time to show a little courtesy toward the newbies...I mean often they get wrapped up in their own thoughts and forget what this website is for. I'm so glad to have met such a kind soul, as yourself.

I've been viewing the 'Hi I'm Joe and I LOVE my Webkinz!' section lately and I'm sort of disappointed. Most new members barely get a welcome from anyone. I know of several people who love greeting the newbies, but compared to how many members has, it's not very many at all.

I'm sure that you remember what it was like to be new here. It was confusing, no one posted on your threads or responded to you, and you felt alone. It's not cool feeling like that.

So why don't you check out these tips and see if maybe we can help out the newbies. They need attention too!


1.) Introduce yourself first.

2.) Be patient - they're new and many of them are at a younger age. They're going to make typos and use the wrong color font. Just keep your cool and there shouldn't be any problems.

3.) Be kind and helpful. Newer members are going to be so confused about what to do here. It's most likely going to be very overwheliming too. If they ask you a question, don't ignore them. Help them out if you can.

4.) Make sure to suggest they check out the FAQ and Rules sections. You can help even further by handing them a link.

5.) Send them a friend's request. It will make them feel excited to have made a new friend, and they'll be very grateful.

6.) Make sure that they know that online bullying isn't going to be accepted here. Tell them how to report a bad member, but also let them know that they can't use the flagging system unless really needed. You cannot just report someone because you don't like them.

7.) Discourage them from getting into fights with other members. Fighting is not prohibited on WI. Also, be sure to report it to a mod if you see anyone fighting, not just newer members.

8.) Let the members know what a creative, fun, educational, and wonderful site Webkinz Insider truly is!

9.) You can also visit some of there threads if their not getting much/any comments. - Thanks to lizzyxwebkinz!

10.) Let the members know our terms. New members might not know what DCT, WI, GE, etc. means. Inform them of this before using them in your posts directed at newer members.


Please let me know if this thread is any of the following;
- messy
- unhelpful
- needs something added
- has any grammar/spelling mistakes

Hope you found this helpful! (:
