WECO GREETER INFO
Having you become a Greeter would be most awesome! but is entirely up to you - do not feel obligated! You do NOT (absolutely NOT) have to do greetings to be a Supporter in favor of the club!
Greeters are special folks, who promise to commit time and energy to welcoming new members. The requirements are: 1) that you greet your assigned members within 48 hours of being assigned them and 2) that you respond to any messages posted on your profile page by new members you've greeted. Even if the message you got was only "Thank you for the greeting." (The club has " standard" responses you can use in various situations to assist you in responding back to them in case you are at a loss for words in any given situation.)
Because this is a club of volunteer members, each person's commitment level is whatever that person wants it to be. The usual commitment is 10 people per day, but we have several Greeters that only greet 5 people per day, and several Greeters that greet people only on Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays. You get to tell me what your schedule will accommodate - how many people on how many days, whichever days are best for you.
Typical commitment to start is 10 greetings per day, which generally takes about 5-10 minutes of time. (Minimum commitment is 5 people 1 day a week.) Greeter requirements are that you post a welcome greeting on your assigned new member(s) profile page on your assigned day(s), and then, if that person posts a comment back on YOUR profile page, you must answer their post to you. (We have a list of resources to supply you with Greetings ideas and responses, as well as Answers to commonly asked questions. I can also personally help if you get stuck, if you just send me a PM.) You should do your assignments within 48 hours of getting the assignment.
Time off: You can take time off whenever you want, but you need to let me know you are taking the time off, so that I can stop giving assignments to you for the time off period, and get other Greeters to cover your assignments. Or if you find you missed doing an assignment, you can contact me to get the assigned names again to do makeup work, or let me know and I will do them instead.
It would be great to have you as a Greeter, but if you feel that making a commitment at this time is not a good idea, it would be best for you to stay as a Club Supporter. I am really happy to have you in the club whichever way works best for you!
If the Greeter info didn’t scare you off, and you still want to become a Greeter, please let me know how much time per day you might be willing to devote to this, or how many members you will contact. I'm suggesting 10 members a day to start to get the feel of doing it; then you can better decide how many to take on. It really doesn't take too much time, especially for only 10 members -- maybe 5-10 minutes? Let me know also if you can work every day, or if there are days you need to take off.
I would also like to get an email address from you where I can send daily member assignments (since the site's PM system allows me to send messages to only 5 people at a time and happily, this club is now bigger than that!) (I think there is a link on the site that will allow you to email me, here. I hope it works! The site says you are in New Jersey - Is EST your correct time zone?
So, if you still wish to be a Greeter, please get back to me with the number of welcomes per day you'd like to do, days you are available, and your email address and time zone and I will get you started doing greetings with the group right away!
Targetlex says... Yes I would love to have a more hands on roll and become a full member or the WECO team! Just let me know the requirements. I read some information on it when I went to pick out a banner. Just let me know!!! :)
Before I let anyone join as a Greeter, I give them a big long explanation about what it is like and what is expected. Since I don't know if you do Skype nor do I know your email address, I'll post the info in a comment to you here. Warning: my next post to you will be a Wall of Text. I apologize, but ask that you read through it! Then you can let me know if you still want to be a Greeter! *smile*
Hope you have been finding the site useful, and that you enjoy your time here when you visit. Lots of good folks to meet, and anime to watch! Maybe you'll even decide to get involved with the community here; it's lively and fun! If you have any questions or just want to chat, please leave me a comment and I'll respond back!
Targetlex says... And I would also like to become a supporter and join the welcoming committee!
Thank you! I am adding you as a WECO Club Supporter, and I thank you much!!! (Club Supporters are important members of the club. Their endorsement really benefits the club by boosting morale, and by helping to increase the club’s reputation and visibility on the site!) If you ever want to be more involved, just let me know and I can help you take a more active part in the club, but nothing more is required. While I love the club's Greeters, who do the welcomes and who are very special people, endorsements are also very cool and we love our Club Supporters. Nothing more is needed. No obligations. If that is the role that is best for you, I thank you very much for your support! (If you -are- interested in doing welcomes on a regular basis and actually greeting new members as part of the club, just get back to me to let me know and I can send info about becoming a Greeter. I'd love it if you have time to participate at that level, as a Greeter! But no pressure - if you wish to be a Supporter and not a Greeter, that is totally fine! *smile*)
(If you want, feel free to use a WECO banner in your forum signature or on your profile page. They are here, if you want one, but no obligation to use one if you don't wish to.)
Thank you! Am now following you! Keep in touch and leave me a comment on my profile page any time - I'd love to hear from you!
