Hope everyone is doing fantastically today and staying Safe only going out when necessary! Incase y’all don’t know I’m Cign the nicest and best moderator here - someone you can always get into contact with whenever necessary! I am just posting this today to bring something to light which I think is not just important but beneficial to our community! And that is the “Introduce Yourself” Topic and the meaning behind it!
Too often I see copy and pasted bits of text and it saddens me - we ain’t a robotic community but instead humans with real emotions; let’s use them! I know its easier to post bits of text which provide users with links and everything they need to get started with in our wonderful community but we can do more! Let’s take this as an example and say for arguments sake I am new to the community - people posting bits of text with countless links boxes and not a single element of a personalised message would drive me as far away from this community as possible; indicating quite simply they don’t care about my presence and just think of me in the end as another user tossing me in the trash.
I want to combat this because our community is just so much more and so worthwhile so onwards with an example! I am going to say for arguments sake @RileyBozina has just joined the community and all of a sudden I notice two things; he is both from Australia and likes Star Wars - awesome! So two examples below of what I could do in this situation!
Heya Riley welcome to AWW - awesome to have you here! I hear you come from the Land Down Under So does @Qantas094 but there is no doubt in my mind you are the nicer Aussie!
Riley! Welcome to AWW - good to have a new user here and can’t wait to see your contribution! I see judging by your PFP your a Star Wars Fan thats awesome! Light Side or Dark Side?
By this a conversation is easily sparked by you guys and a real friendship can build off this something is truly our top priority at AWW; your experience and the friendships built of them - no point having a community if it isn’t a fun one and one that impacts y’all and benefits y’all for years to come!
It’s just these little thing that improves all our experiences by loads I know the important topics do need to be highlighted and brought to new users attention but first impressions always count guys - so much more then we think and its just so important to get to know a user before anything else. That’s me done leave any comments below; and too a brighter a better experience at the AWW!
