Arrow a welcome message for all new members :)

hi
i think it would be nice if whenever there was a new member, a mesage would come on their profile from the admins or other members welcoming them to WI, telling them to read the FAQ, and the rules, and anything else they might need to know. Since some members don't post in the hi my name is joe section, they might not know. this would help them feel more welcome in WI, and tell them about WI.
also we could include something about vm's, pm's, the GE, and about mods and admins- thanks
hp1010

it could be something like this

hi and welcome to WI! you should read the FAQ and the rules at the top in green. right now you are a lil kinz which means you have less than 10 posts, but when you have 10 posts in the forum you will become a webkinz. here are some common terms used
WI=webkinz insider
WW=webkinz world
we hope you have a great time at WI
From. . .

it would help them feel more welcome, and it would be nice to recieve

That's a great idea, but in order to post in the forums, you have to read the FAQ and Rules, and agree to the rules. If they actually read the FAQ/Rules, then they wouldn't have any basic questions (I mean the part in the welcome message that says "you should read the FAQ and rules at the top in green.")

Great idea though!

I agree because that would cover all the questions (basic at least) that they might have.

---> I think a lot of people skim the rules/FAQ when they join..so I like this idea.

But how many people that you know would actually read the FAQ? I always scanned through it, but I never did read the whole thing. I'm a hands-on person!

I don't think that EVERYONE reads the FAQ / Rules, although I did. Some people may be so excited, they rush in with no knowledge of WI. So, I think this would be a great thing for all the new members of WI

Great Job! This is probably going to help out lots of newcomers! (you might want to add something about the GE)

Sorry, should have made it clearer. I meant the "Please read the FAQ and Rules in green" part of the welcome

I still think they need to know about the GE....lol xD But yeah, i actually read (most of) The FAQ and Rules. Scanning through it seems like a good idea now, but trust me it will bite you in the but later

Oh yeah lol, sorry! That makes it clearer I still agree with that approach though, it would make WI seem like a more friendly place, where the mods actually talk to you xD Which they do.
