Default Re: Please Encourage new members to read rules!

I had something else to add that I didn't say in my initial post.
If you ever see a member breaking a rule (new or old) or you think they're breaking a rule it never hurts to flag the post in question for a mod to come take a look at.

Great reminder for everyone indeed!
Many new members get banned easily because they didn't take the time to read the rules and complain later on. So we should always post a few pointers to them of what is allowed and whats not. And posting on their profiles too.
Thanks for everyones help!

One friendly greeting with a link to the Rules, is very nice. Two of them... then three.... then a dozen.... too much! Put yourself in the new member's shoes, they must wonder what they are doing wrong. Befriend new members by chatting with them rather than ignoring them.

Please check to see that you are the first before posting a link to the Rules. This applies to your friendly greetings in the "Hi I'm Joe and I Love My Webkinz" forum, and also on the profiles of new members. Read the posts before yours....

When a new member registers, they are directed to the "Hi, I'm Joe" forum and encouraged to introduce themselves. Whether the new member actually does this, is up to them and their choice must be respected. If they choose to ask questions instead of reading the Guides, that is fine too. There are many different ages here, and different styles of learning.

Don't worry, new members don't get banned for breaking rules out of ignorance. As aways, if you see a rule being broken, just flag it.

And please remember that there no longer is a green link to Rules in the banner, so please don't direct new members to it, it will just confuse them.

One reason why this forum is so wonderful, is the friendly attitude that you all have for newcomers

Oh yes, I agree with Webberlily. I always cringe a little when I see everyone welcoming new members in the 'Joe' section with "Be sure and read the rules!". I would be terrified to post after that. lol
It's been awhile since I joined WI, but I believe that you have to read the rules and agree to them before you join anyway. One person reminding them to read the rules should be enough. Then, if they seem to have a problem with one of the rules, just gently remind them that members are not supposed to do that. You can point them to a link again if they are struggling. I think it sounds nicer to always say "It might be really helpful to just run through the rules again". - Instead of "Hey Newbie!! You're messing up big time!" (ok, no one does that, but you know what I mean)

I really Know what you mean. Being a fairly new member I got like 20 READ THE RULES!!! I started to wonder if people were monitoring my post's and politly saying YOUR DOING SOMETING WRONG READ THE RULE. I went over them when I joined you kinda know them. But I appreciated people being to nice.
