I also agree with Rejewel, because you should ALWAYS read the 1st post, even if it is a copypaste message, because you could easily overlook a question, a conversation you could have, or a new friend
Hi icecube! Thank you for looking at both sides of the story! We truly only have the best intentions, that is being Welcoming and trying to help our newest members. By the way though, you did put things in perspective for me (Thank You!), that I should follow up on the people who I left a message too! I will now always do that, Thanks!! ~ lollie

I mean, as long as people are taking time to welcome people, isn't that all that matters? Plus, people don't want to forget any helpful information like how to become a GT, or how to PM, so they just copy & paste that bit, and type, welcome, and the person their welcoming's username. But that's my look on it.

I noticed that Gingerly does it, but, it wouldn't hurt to get an official word.

I do not have a premade welcome message, but I do write an original welcome each day I go to the "hi, I'm Joe" section.... and I copy that message for the day and use it over and over. But I always write something personal to comment on what the new person has written in their introduction message, just because I think it does add a nice touch to show that you have read their message, and are replying to what they have said. (But that is just me... I only get to respond to 4 or 5 posts at a time, so I feel I have the extra time to add that personal touch).

I felt absolutely NO anger towards any copied welcomes I received when I first came to WI. I was THRILLEd to have people say hello to me, and offer out their welcomes and advice. The one's that are personalized are a bonus, but EVERY response was a member saying hello, and showing that they cared. I appreciated each and every one of those welcomes.

I make it a point to go to the welcome section everyday. I know how much a hi meant to me when I was new, and I always try to get a hello out there to share that smile with someone else. :-)

I understand, but I don't think it's right. Some people may not like this sort of information.EX-
Hi I'm jonascullen and I love Twilight and JB! I can't wait for all the movies and CDs to come out!

You would want to say like we have a lot of members that like Twilight too and to go to Open Mike to talk about it, not welcome to WI Gifted means.........
You have to read it. Sometimes it is ok, but not all the time!

I think I might feel a bit offended, but I think it's alright. I know it's allowed too. I think momwhoplays is right, you should also include anything they are asking about. I know that it'd be really good to make an original, that included lots of info. Then, for each person, you could write them a small and short message welcoming them.
