That makes sense!!

I honestly really dislike it.
You're not even greeting the person, in my opinion. If you were greeting them, you'd take the time to write a special welcome for each peson, not a Copy-And-Paste paragraph that honestly doesn't mean anything.

I have a pre made welcome thread I copy and paste. New members often have the same questions so it is nice to help them out.
I don't have the time to write an original message to each member. I always try to read the new member's message and comment on it. If they have a specific question, like how to update their profile page, I will check to see if someone already gave them that link.
I took time to put together unique welcome that I copy and paste. I also update the welcome sign sometimes.
I have had several members copy my welcome message including the font and color. I don't think member's should take other people's welcome message. I have had to change my welcome at least twice since August because someone copied my welcome. I don't think that should be allowed and I report them for it.

---------- nonna72 added 2 Minutes and 8 Seconds later ----------

I have often thought of not welcoming anymore because my welcome information was taken. I think that should not be allowed.
I don't see anything wrong with the way I welcome new members and it is kind of upsetting that so many people are writing mean comments about it and "copy and paste" welcomes. It doesn't mean I am "lazy" or don't care about new members. At least I take the time the welcome them.

......First of all, yes you are allowed to copy and paste welcomes....but....you can not
copy and paste *someone elses welcome message." If you see that happen, please flag the post.

......Copy and paste welcomes count as only ONE post, when you're working on the
50+ posts you need to become a Gifted Trainee.

.....Since I have always welcomed new members ( It's my favorite thing to do here)
it used to really bother me to see copy and pasted welcomes, because I personally
gave a different message to each person.....it took me alot of time, because I welcomed *each and every new member.* However, when I became a Moderator
and was so busy with those duties, I had to make a choice.....either copy and paste
my welcomes.....or not welcome at all. I chose to copy and paste and I continue to
welcome every new person coming through our Front Door.

.....Copy/pasting still takes time, but that's so much better, than not welcoming
our new members at all.

Default Re: Is this allowed?

You can do it, as long as you are copying your own and no one elses, but I dont like to bc I like to personalize the msg, I personally think it makes people feel more welcome and like you are writing to them personally

It is a personal preference I suppose, but it is allowed, sometimes I post something and if there are 5 of thr same thread I don't want to type the same answer 5 times, I just paste it.
