In recent weeks I spend a lot of my time (at least 3/4 times a week) greeting people with proper practical advice after they had been active and duplicates appear on my radar.
What I find disturbing is the fact that people have no follow-up for up to a fortnight after the initial welcoming greet. And people are active who only have the volunteer-badge, nothing else. I would feel much more "safe" knowing that at least someone new had taken notice of a Honor Code that is obligatory to sign (acknowledge) before any activity.
I know that the time of greeters, mentors and leaders is pread thinly, but I propose there is still room for improvement. Follow-up could be much quicker than 2 weeks; greeting perhaps a tad less happy general and open ended invitations to "potty around" (in the gardening sense of the word, though in practice what happens often is that the "sand-box" gets unintentionally defiled because of lack of clear instructions).
I have been shown the link to the greeters page: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Greeters_Message_Samples
My apologies if this seems to be overly critical of other's hard work, but many greets are just too "warm" light toned "happy familiesh" open ended invitations. I have a greet in Afrikaans (because that is where I see most of the duplicates popping up) that is too long I know, but is concrete and clear cut - I'll add it to the list - but it addresses some of the most crucial issues without sending out newbies like tender lams for the slaughter into the giant caverns of Hogwarths which is WikiTree to find & learn to do their magic.
Edit: I saw that there is this feed: http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/217819/honor-code-why-sign-it - Guy's question is really relevant in this context ...
