Default Let's Be More Welcoming!

As I have been wondering through the forum, I've noticed new people (there's always new people on !) When people reply on their introduction thread, they usually make a post like this:



"Hiiiii! (longer post)"

or

"Hi! (10 letter rule)"


I understand not all of our messages need to contain 10 letters, but the more letters there are, the kinder, more welcoming it sounds!

Here are suggestions on what to do:


Welcome to Webkinz Insider. Please visit our FAQs section if you need some help. Here is a link: _____ (fill in blank).




Try not to use abbreviations with newbies either, but it would be nice to explain what they mean.

I did not post this to offend people at all, as I have been guilty of it before, too. People just feel more welcomed and informed with a "full" post.

Default Re: Let's Be More Welcoming!

yeah, that's a good idea. maybe post the links to the FAQ, rules, and maybe abbreviations dictionary. and don't just say "hi!" say "welcome to WI! you're going to have a great time! if u have any questions, ask me and i will do my very best!" or something like that...

Default Re: Let's Be More Welcoming!

Well, Skydreamer, this is a nice thread! I go to the Welcome forum (I should more often!) and tell them a few things about what is going on (Like right now we have the WI contest for the Whimzy Dragon and Lil Kinz Basset.) Or if there is a thread I find particularly helpful. I like to include it. Sometimes by their name or by their questions you can even tell them which forum or find a link for them. I think it is tough when you don't know how to jump from place to place as efficiently as we have become, to just grab a newbie and 'Hey, this is a GREAT spot to check out!'

BUT...that's just me...I like to talk, LOL.
