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
That I see as a much better idea, giving people a choice as to whether they wish to be introduced as new or not.

In order to trade items on Webkinz Insider, you first have to go through a training program. BUT before you do that, you have to be a member for at least two weeks and have 50+ helpful or relevant posts (Nothing like OMG, or polls, rumor mill...No lalala, no spamming or even IDK in a thread also, no bumping a thread.) Once you feel you have passed the criteria for entry, you apply to the Gifted section to become a gift trainee.
There you learn from an experienced trader; called a gift coach and you build up a gift exchange (kind of like a store, if you will) you trade with other trainees and your coach, taking small tests along the way.Once you have done everything to the Coach's satisfaction you move to the next stage, getting gifted.
I hope this has helped to answer your questions

I've seen a few "feeding frenzy's" on newly gifted folk with a lot of items in their GE - and opening the flood gates by posting their GE would likely cause more problems.

There is no rush - there are lots of traders and items to trade. Advice is easy to get - just post in the Gifted thread and you'll have tons of advice.

It's actually a good idea for people who are new to the GE to post on other people's threads for a while just to get the hang of it.

But.... if/when you complete your training and are new to the GE and want to announce that fact - it's easy - just add "NEW GE" to your title and you'll get lots of attention! and then if you want advice - just say so in your opening message and you'll get lots of help.

Actually I can see this happening easily on the GE - but not because of anyone's "worst" nature - we just have a lot of enthusiastic traders in the GE who love to trade and newly Gifted traders can easily be overwhelmed by folks with all the best of intentions. The other kind tend to get weeded out of the GE fairly quickly....

To add to this, maybe the members can PM MommaB or another Mod/Admin in the GE and ASK them to have their name be put on the list, that way, if they dont want too much traffic, they dont have to get it.

I would love to be gifted one day-- I have some work to do first-- but I know that once I get there-- it would be so nice to know who else is just starting with me-- maybe to forge new friendships-- and I would love it if some of you that have been there for a while could offer help-- This is a great idea!!!! Thanks for the suggestion.

Even though I'm not gifted, I think that that's a great idea! I've been trying to become gifed for a while, but for some reason my application always gets deleted
