Oh, that's right, Andrew is a Gift Guru now...LOL...I forgot.

I actually love this idea...I think it would have helped me get my thread up faster, instead of having certain people whom I shall not name bug me until I did.

I was actually thinking of something like this recently, but not quite like this...could it be that we think alike? LOL

I also agree with what someone else said, it would be a lot to manage...moving the threads, etc.

I am not gifted, but I have read enough to understand what you are saying. I think it is a good idea, any extra help a newbie can get is good

I hate to be the devil's advocate...please do not revoke my GT status....
But right now there is so much to keep up with, between my four WW accounts, threads here on WI and also my GE, I feel like I would be overwhelmed getting all sorts of advice coming my way on another thread I would have to check. My Gift Coach has been wonderful, and her coaching is helpful because it is centralized. Also, I think (correct me if I am wrong on this) GGs can always PM us to give us advice, support, complaints. I am not sure I would want all that on a public thread.

Again, just my two cents. I am sure once I graduate from the GTS I may not see it the same way.

I agree with Peacock Noodle. It's scary enough becoming Gifted without being posted up for all to see. When (if ever) I open my GE, I have a choice of advertising my "new" status, or not, in my GE title. If I make obvious bloopers, I'm sure that lots of advice will come from all directions. And I can always PM my coach or another guru for advice.

And what would you do with all the slow-pokes like me who live in permanent GE construction, and spend their days trolling other GE's? I've been Gifted for weeks (oops, months?) now. No GE yet!

Playing the devil's advocate with Peacock Noodle as a GT, when moving up to the GE I might also feel overwhelmed and would feel a bit apprehensive that some people might use the list as a "fresh meat" type of thing. In other words pouncing on the new people to get their best stuff right away. Maybe I just look too much into the worst part of human nature sometimes.

Default Re: New Gifted Members

I mentioned a similar idea to MommaB once + if I recall correctly (can't remember exactly what she said), she was worried along the same lines as I see posted here ... she didn't want to have new members get overwhelmed with trade requests. Additionally, in terms of offering help + answering any questions, she felt that the ability to create threads in the main GE area about such things as "Is this type of trade fair?", "Is this allowed", etc. would serve the same purpose in addition to the fact that mods + GCs can also be PM-d.

Default Re: New Gifted Members

I think the whole idea behind the gift trainee experience was that you would be getting your advice from someone who has been hand-chosen as one of the best to train you. When I was gifted I found it to be a scary place with a TON of people willing to offer me advice, which in the end I discovered from a gift coach was NOT true in many cases. Sometimes advice, though well meaning, can be more destructive than constructive....
BUT the idea of a welcome thread similar to the Hi Joe thread for incoming NEWLY Gifted IS a good idea. If you wanted to include links you had that you found to be helpful, by all means. It may not be such a bad idea
