Well, I'm not sure that there's actually a rule about copying & pasting, but this is just my opinion. If you just copy out a post, with fill-in-the-blanks and such, and post it over and over again, to each WI new member, it'll make them just feel like a fill-in-the-blank person.
If you usually explain the important links and rules, then you probably can just copy and paste that. Just a simple explanation. But if you're gonna actually welcome them too, you should take the time to make that post unique, for each unique member.
So you could do like, one welcoming *unique* paragraph, and then a copy&pasted rules explanation.
Just my opinion on that . . .

And absolutely not. Members are allowed one account only, if you see a duplicate account, just report that person. (Wouldn't be such a great welcome, but it's in the rules)

Hope this helps!

Take the time to read what the new member wrote and reply accordingly. It means so much more that a pre written form letter.
MNBert makes a good point, when a new member takes time to add something unique about themselves, it's nice to try to comment on the information they posted. However, alot of users post "Hi, I'm new" or something like it and it is hard to ome up with an original post for every new user.

i don't think any of those sound right to me. that's just what i think. maybe the rules are different. i really think those are not allowed. so i wouldn't try them. but you can ask a mod (or admin) if you want an exact answer

to answer your first question, members do copy and paste post they made in the new section, mainly because they include many helpful links and lots of great info that take a long time to put together into one post, and they simply could not redo it every time. you just have to make sure you ONLY copy and paste YOUR post, and do not steal others

as for the second question, that is not allowed. espicially if the member was banned, which means they committed an offense, which means they hurt the good of the forum, and do not need to be here. maybe if they talked to a mod and truely were sorry, they might be allowed to rejoin under supervision, but i would still report anytime you see someone doing this!

Second question. Are we allowed to have second accounts? I'm pretty sure we aren't. In the Hi my name is Joe and I love my Webkinz! section I see a lot of "You may know me as (**********). I won't be using that account anymore, I wanted to start off fresh." And "I got banned before, I was (**************). I want another chance. I made another account". I was just wondering about this!
Copy/pasting posts is NOT a good way to try and get gifted. If you are welcoming a newcomer and you use that technique, you won't get credit toward your 50+ good posts.
I copy/paste my How to add pics to Post, but that is because it is a useful guide. That one goes without saying, but a Welcome post?? No, those are supposed to be your own and personal to the newcomer.
Under NO circumstances are we allowed another account. If you are not satisified with your name, if you are not happy with the posts, if you have been previously banned, if you are just bored...No, you are NOT allowed more than one account.

I think on the first one you ARE allowed to copy paste on the 'Hi my name is Joe' section. You are NOT allowed to have more than one account though... Unless it got glitched or something, but I don't think that happens much.

that is a good point..it would be nice if they actually welcome you using info from your letter...even if they did do the prewritten "formalities" afterwards...just to mare the site feel more "homely"

Question 1: If you want to welcome new members, it is better to right it out. If you are not a great typer, I would just copy it but change half of it. Like keep the links but change the welcome banner, the words, and especially... everything else besides the link!
Question 2: No. I think it is very mean to create another account if you got banned. You got banned because you posted wrong things. Why should you be able to make a new account?! Also, doing it just to enter contest grosses me out. People are getting greedier and greedier...
