Default Appriciate EVERY0NE on WI, especially new members!

I think new members don't get enough respect on WI.

I mean, of course people are nice to them, but I guess what I'm saying is that they don't get enough attention.
It's not like we're ignoring them on purpose, I think we just don't think about it.

To start, you should head on down to the Hi, My Name is Joe! section and welcome some new members. Tell them about fun things to do on the forum, and suggest somthing they might like. Comment on what they said, don't just give them the same welcome you gave the last person. Make it personal.
Become their friend - chances are they have no friends on WI! It'll make a new member's day if a bunch of well known members want to be their friend.

If you see a new member starting a club, join it! If you arent interested in that topic, find people you know who are, and get them to join. If you see a new member writing a story in creative writing, comment on it! Don't just read it and move on - tell them what you think! Don't just stick to threads made by your WI friends - look at everything! You never know what your missing.

What I'm saying is, appriciate everyone on WI, especially the new members.

Thanks,

- Nadine

That was well said, I couldn't have said it better myself!!
I totally agree with every thing you said.

Especially now with all the new members it kinda seems overwhelming, so alot of people avoid them..and I gotta say I LOVE the new members!

This happens a TON in the ge too, all the newly gifted usually don't have alot of people trading with them because they are "new."

Thanks lexi!
Yeah, I've noticed it happens everywhere! Just because someone is new to somthing, is a LilKinz, or has only 48 posts (hint hint ME! haha), doesn't mean they're not as good as everyone else.
Or even if they've been gifted for a while, but they don't have many friends, nobody ever pays attention to them.

Well said. REP to you!
New members deserve as much attention and respect as they can get so that they feel that they are too part of the WI family.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks pupcake!
I feel pretty strongly about this because I'm kind of always ignored also. I have a story in Creative Writing and 3 people posted on it.
So i made this thread so I could help me and other ignored members!

I think you have an excellent point. My first WI friend was the only one who did the things you said, and really took time to talk to me and get to know me. Now I have a bunch of nice friends that I really love, but I'll always be grateful to my first friend, because she was always ready to help and was always sweet and nice, and she just took the time to get to know me!

Exactly, librarygirl! That's how everyone should be. It's just the nicer thing to do and it shows you're the better person. I think people should get rep for being really nice to new and ignored members.

That's really good, SummerLovin! Lets hope lots of people do the same!
