Hi Everyone 


Do you like meeting new people?


Do you like helping people?


You do? 


Great, well how do you fancy joining the greeting gang, we are 

WikiTrees starting point, we send out a welcome message to new members, and a confirmation 

message once they have volunteered. 


It does come with a health warning - it can be addictive. 


You will be trained by one of the greeters at a time convenient to 

you, you can have more than one training session if you wish. 


Now the rule part,


Sorry but we have to have some rules,

 1/ you need to be over 18 

2/ you need to be a member for 30 days and have at least 100 

contributions which are non GEDCOM

3/ you need to be fairly computer friendly, be able to edit profiles, post messages, and use email 

4/ you need to follow the honour code when communicating with new members. 


I am sure you are all able to do this, but we have to ask


The fun part is, you meet new people, and some of them can 

become great friends, the greeter gang is fun, and extremely 

helpful when you have had a question you are unsure about, so it

 can be a great way of learning new things. We have a schedule of greeting times, so you can pick 

from empty slots or just jump in

 during open times - yes it does make it sound like a shop :-)



Courtesy is a must, and a sense of humour is optional, but it helps. We have a 

google group so you can post messages there if you are uncertain about confirming someone or you have been asked a 

question you don’t know the answer to 

 If you are interested please leave an answer on here or send me a

 private message.

So glad to see this post!!! Thanks for your recruiting efforts Karen, certainly a great need on WikiTree!!!
Thank you Dorothy, hopefully we will get a few more to join us, the more the merrier xxx
Thanks for posting this, Karen. I love all the aspects of Greeting, whether welcome a new registrant, confirming someone as a full member, check in a couple of weeks later, or making pre-1700 suggestions. And then there are all the behind the scenes stuff.

We'd love to have you join us!
This is really great and thank you so much Karen for doing this!  Greeting is how I have met many of the wonderful members of our WikiTree community and how they have shared their knowledge with me and enriched my own experience here at WikiTree.  I highly recommend that if you have an inkling to volunteer as a Greeter, then to follow through and give an answer  to Karen!  Go Karen!!
Do I want to be a Greeter?? Why yes, I DO!  And I am!  And it's GREAT!

Join us, folks. Jooooinnnn usssssss... we have virtual cookies...  :D
