Responding to Introductions

Recommended Posts

I noticed that Glenn was making a response to all of the new introductions this morning which is a good thing for this forum.  :)  I have been very guilty of letting these slide many times in the past but recently I have developed a different outlook on intros.  I have come to realize that I receive a lot of benefit from being a member of this forum and the least I can do is welcome new members who can become valuable contributors to this site that we all love.  I guess I see it as a responsibility now, whereas before I cynically ignored them. (One of my detrimental character traits.)  I know it is sometimes difficult to know what to say, but just a simple "welcome" is sufficient to let someone know you are glad they joined.  I hope others feel the same way.  Let's give everyone a big welcome to the site!   ;)

I try to give a welcome to some of the folks that are new.  Nothing against others but I like to try to welcome all those in my state or surrounding areas.  I figure it may give them a heads up on who all is in their area.  There are just too many to respond to every new person.

I thought there were too many also until I checked it. The last two weeks I've been checking them every day and we have only been averaging maybe four or five a day. I just chose to start welcoming the current ones. I wasn't about to go back and respond to all of the old ones. ;)

Just work forward.

Remember this: You might find it boring and redundant, but the

"Hello!" is really appreciated by the new guy. Respond if and when

you like, it's certainly not any kind of obligation.

When I joined I was welcomed with some replies, and I appreciated the welcome.  I try to do the same for the new members.

I think a nice welcome makes the individuals feel welcome and free to ask questions or offer their opinions.

So, although a little late, welcome Senile1.  ;D   ;D   ;D

I'm guilty of not going on the intro section.  I used to respond when they were in the general section.  It was nice that you noticed many members can't be bothered---I'm gonna make a better effort to say hello

LOL!!  Actually, Sam, I never introduced myself when I started.  ;)
