How important do you think it is to welcome new members and do you welcome every member on your forum or other forums you are apart of?

As a forum owner, I view new members as new friends. These people have taken time to register and make an introduction thread on your forum, the least you can do is welcome them and make them feel at home. Whenever I register on a new forum, I always make an introduction thread. When I see a majority of the community welcome me, it makes me enjoy my time there even more than I would have. It's important to welcome new members, especially as a staff member of the forum. It's a sign of respect and acceptance to the forum, it also shows that the community is generous and open to new members.

I feel like it's really important. I don't like to be on a forum that doesn't welcome their members and that didn't welcome me. It's one of the main things that makes me decide if I want to stay on that forum or not.

It's very important. It's not good for new members to feel like they aren't welcome, they won't stick around.

I think what is most important is having a community that one wants to come back to.

I feel its not just important to just post a "welcome" but rather interact in a better way, ask about people, talk to them about their interests etc.
It makes the users feel really welcome and that is the point!

It's important because in that way (for me), I can see how active its members and staff are. You know, they'd spend time in welcoming new members when they could have used that time in some other things. Also, it gives a feeling of hospitality when members and staff of that forum welcome you. A simple hello or welcome would really be good.

I absolutely agree that it's extremely important to welcome new members, especially if they've gone out of their way to post an introduction post. When I can catch them I usually try to PM them as soon as they join. I know there are features out there where an automatic PM can be sent when someone joins but I prefer to do it manually as I'm pretty sure people can tell when a PM is automated. New members have taken the time to register on the forum and even if they end up not posting much I think it's great that they are willing to take a few minutes to sign up. Who knows, perhaps me welcoming them will be the only encouragement they need to start posting like crazy.

I think it's extremely important to greet all the new members on your forum. It allows you to get to know the member, and it's great to thank someone for taking time out of their day to join your forum. Smile
