Welcoming

Hi, McArby's. I had to delete your welcome message for Papanoel because it was inconsistent with our standards for welcoming. First, all welcomes need to be personal. That means it says something about the user personally, and not just something you could copy and paste to just any user. (I notice you were given an impersonal welcome yourself when you arrived; that may be part of what set you on the wrong track. Sorry about that; that shouldn't have happened.) Secondly, the message was unprofessional. It contained many spelling errors (incidentally, the German for "welcome" is spelt "Willkommen") and contained phrases that didn't make a lot of sense together about sandboxes, Easter eggs and the like. Also, while I've no doubt you meant it to be funny, your joke about "killing you dead" was not appropriate for a welcome. All these things tend to be confusing and off-putting for new users, and as such they undermine our attempts to actually welcome them to our community. If you want to do more welcoming, I suggest reading more about it here. Thanks, talk atcha later! Heimstern Läufer 04:49, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Note taken, but I was trying to show my smart-alek nature. I will be more careful in what I say, and I will work on my spelling (I was going by how it sounded :p). All of my welcomes will end with have fun and some kind of joke, as I want people to laugh and have funThe McArby! 14:53, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
