Default Re: Being Genuine.

I totally agree with you CA3
I have noticed alot of 'copied and pasted' posts on WI.
I am not saying its wrong to copy and paste links, but to give each new member the same ol' post you give to everyone can get pretty old. This kinda goes along with what you said Cow. I know that it is the easy way out, but still, members want a welcome not a post.
Again, I think it would be a bit more nicer if we could say something about our own experiances with whatever the thread concerns and give the member something to look forward to or to comment back on.
Great suggestion for the members CowAttack

Default Re: Being Genuine.

I really try not to post the same things to the new members.
Since our wonderful members usually only post the FAQ and Rules type-posts, I try to give the members some fun things to do on WI.
Such as DCT and Role-Playing (which I do not copy and paste these)

It's not a welcome if you copy and paste. It just shows "yepp, tryin' to get my GT application done... WELCOME *cut+paste*"

I made a thread, I believe it was titled 'Is this allowed?' about copy-paster welcome messages. It states, in the rules, that it is allowed, and I always... didn't really like it, but I got some very good opinions from old and new users alike, and it made me (and a few others) see both sides.

I do copy and paste, but I mean every word of it, and I change my message every 3 messages or so so I don't get too repetative.

Oh, I hate when people do that! It is very hurtful, because it looks more like you are more concerned about getting a higher post count than actually congratulating the people!

Default Re: Being Genuine.

I remember the first time I saw "tenletterrule" on a post, I had no clue what it meant being brand new to WI and I didn't want to ask and bring attention to to the fact that I was out of the loop. So I hunted around and found the answer. Personally a lot of my responses are long winded because it's how I tend to be even when I talk, I'm love to use words. So in addition to remembering that everyone has feelings and deserves more than just a curt response remember that some of our members might not even now what "tenletterrule" stands for. Great reminder cowattack3, thank you for it.

And to add on to what you are saying (i think)...

If what you are posting is under 10 letters, WI could do without it. If it's a simple congrats, or thanks, or something, you can show how much you really mean it by going beyond 10 letters. I'm not saying you have to write a book, I'm only saying... give a little gift to WI. Show us that you care.

And there I go again... I mean don't throw a whole parade.... you guys get the idea, mm?

Wonderful reminder! You're exactly right!

We all need to be polite and respectful. This was a big accomplishment for them so you need to give them some support. The last thing that I want to say is that if you don't have anything nice to say or don't care, then don't post. We don't need that negative activity.
