Imagine welcoming every new member with a long, personalized letter. People are joining every day, and, although it would be awesome to do, it would be very hard.

I love a little from both worlds~~as a newbie I did like the info pointing me in the right direction even though it is overwhelming BUT I also love the personalized messages that gave me personalized attention and showed me how very much I have in common *** other WI members~~it is a fun way to meet people!

I think that people can post or PM whatever they want too. It's not really a big deal

Now, I do not expect anyone else to do the same for me although I have to admit that it is nice to get a handmade card but if someone takes the time to go out and purchase a ready made card that thousands of other people have because it was mass produced, well, they were still thinking of me.

You are right, there are thousands of WI members. But how many of them post in the "Hi, I'm Joe" section welcoming new members? Not many. I have to admit that I want to but have the need myself to write a new message for each person... thus making it very tiring- so I don't. How sad is that? What a horrible person I am, right? I don't welcome members as often as I want to and I need to do that more but I seriously considered typing up a welcome message that is uniquely mine that I share with everyone. I wrote it so it IS heartfelt.

Each person who "bothers" to welcome new members is doing something that is special and they do it because they really want you to feel welcome. If they happen to send you a "pre-made card" don't think that they are not being sincere. It takes wonderful people to go to the "Hi, I'm Joe" section each day and welcome people... after the initial post when they register, most people end up ignoring that section...

So here's the real question:

Would you rather someone buy you a pre-made birthday card, or not get you one at all?

Just trying to put things into perspective.
I never thought of it that way , and I agree !

I did. I think it was my first post. I remember when I posted, went to another part of the forum, came right back, and there were already posts welcoming me. It really made me feel welcome and I never noticed that it was cut and paste. Honestly I would not have cared if I did. The same people that go and welcome people do it to make people feel welcome and sooooo many members never even go to that section. They should be applauded, not reprimanded on how they welcome people.

My insurance agent sends me a birthday and Christmas card every year- yes, it's a cheesy cheap card but I stick with him mostly because he took the time to send the card and write his name in the card.
