WolfQuest Welcoming Commitee

Post by Masika » Wed Oct 28, 2015 9:29 am

WolfQuest Welcoming Commitee
*This idea was initally proposed by DreamerDay in the forum suggestions topic and I have been given approval by Neamara to start this group & post the topic for it*
What do we do?
The aim of the group is to welcome & greet new users to the website via PM. Through welcoming the new users, helpful information will be provided to them regarding both the game and the forum in an attempt to direct them to the best places for their needs (e.g. if they have questions about the game or forum, then through our welcoming message we will direct them to the Tips, Hints and Help section or to the Newbie Teacher Program if they want one-to-one help from an experienced user).

How can I be apart of the welcoming commitee?
Joining the commitee is relatively simple. In order to be apart of the welcoming commitee, you must PM me (SilverHybrid) the following form (this is so I'm aware of who is interested in joining the commitee and can log each user who is apart of it);

Code: Select all

[b]Username:[/b]
[b]How active are you (rate yourself from 1-10):[/b]
[b]Why would you like to be apart of the welcoming commitee?:[/b]
[b]Do you agree with the expectations?[/b]
[b]Any suggestions on how the commitee can be improved?[/b]
[b]Anything else I need to know?:[/b]
Once you have sent in your application, you will be sent a confirmation PM within 1-2 days detailing that your form has been received and if you have met the requirements, you will be informed that you are apart of the commitee. If you have not met the requirements, you will be informed as this and you will not be accepted into the commitee until you have reached the requirements, excluding exceptional circumstances (e.g. user has switched accounts).

What are the requirements for joining the commitee?
The requirements for joining are as follows;
  • - 30 reasonable posts.
    - Been apart of the community for at least 2 months.


These requirements have been put into place to ensure that you have some awareness of both the game & forum, meaning that you'll be able to be as helpful as possible when welcoming new users. There may be exceptional circumstances in which these requirements may not completely restrict you joining; therefore, if there is an aspect that you feel falls under this, please let me know in the "Anything else I need to know?" section of the joining form.


What are the expectations for members of the commitee?
  • - Ensure that your activity is reasonable (inactivity in the commitee which exceeds 20 days will result in removal. You will have the opportunity to reapply, but there is no certainty that you will be re-accepted).
    - You must ensure that you are PMing a couple of new users each week.
    - Express knowledge about WolfQuest and ensure that the information you provide to new users is accurate.
    - Ensure that you are personable and friendly when welcoming new users.
    - Always have a positive attitude.
    - Follow all of the forum guidelines.
Current members of the commitee:
  • - SilverHybrid
    - CakeWolfy
    - Wolvencall
    - CaffeineCollie

One question, will there be a format that we'll have to follow in our Welcome PMs?

Good to see someone finally started this up, it's been approved on the Forum Suggestions list for ages, heh. Good luck!

Great question - I hadn't specified a format for people to follow since I wanted there to be some free reign over how people decide to structure their messages, so long as they include vital elements such as the forum guidelines. Although, if you think a format would be helpful, I'm more than happy to draft one up (I might do that along with a specification of compulsory things to be added in the messages, such as the forum guidelines as highlighted before).

Thanks Tserin! I hope that the commitee will do well and manage to positively contribute to the community & the newer users. :D

Great to see you three expressing an interest! If you definitely do decide to apply, remember to just fill out the form on the first post and PM it to me. ~

Speaking of forms, we have our first welcoming commitee member - welcome CakeWolfy!

EDIT: Wolvencall has also joined the welcoming commitee - great to have you as a part of the group!

This is an awesome idea! I would have loved to join this, except for the fact that I'm not active at all on the actual game (only on the forums) and that there seems to be many people here who know much more than me of the inner workings of the game.
I think this committee will definitely increase the time people will play the game (I, for one, would stop playing a game if I'm too confused about how to play it). I wish you success!

Just want to clarify that you don't have to be active in-game to be apart of the welcoming commitee; it only applies to the forums since it will involve PMing users on here (although, some knowledge about the game is useful). :]

Also, we have another new welcoming commitee member - please welcome CaffeineCollie!

Something crossed my mind, how would we know if someone already PMed a new member? We don't wanna bombard them with the same stuff, you know....

I'd would like to start off with helping others, but you never know when the person you're about to PM has already been PMed by somebody else XD
