So what if we want to be a greeter but we already have another badge?

You'll still be a Contributor, look at OliveOyl's Dream Kudos for example, but you would have the Greeter badge.

:crazy: Yikes! You guys are looking at my Kudos? I feel so violated!

Zerobu, you'd have to forfeit the other badge if you want the greeter one. We only get one badge. And you'll not be able to edit your posts for as long of a time (24 hours).

But on the plus side, you'll be red like me. :D

Yeah...no.
Red beats green, especially that Olive green.

You do realize that if you werent a greeter, you would most likely be an author and most likely then, agree with me! :D

Maybe, but since I had the choice, I chose Greeter. :D

Now I wouldn't mind being purple...those guys are the coolest!
My coding skills fall way short yet, though. *sigh* one of these days...

To your first statement about being a Greeter, welcoming members is very important, it sets the tone for their stay here at DIC.

Agreed, that purple is quite nice.

As for what has been said before, red > yellow, just kidding. Either way, it's your choice Zero, depends on what you want.

Don't be a stereotypical geek. You know the M.O. No social skills. Shy. Withdrawn. Locked up in a small office banging out code all night with a 6 pack of Coke (or Mountain Dew).

We get so many new members here at Dream.In.Code and when they take the time to introduce yourself, they would really like to feel welcomed :) But what's this you say? I don't have anything in common with them? Sure you do. First off, you're both here at Dream.In.Code because you probably... code. So ask them what they program in, or what they do for a living, or how they got in to programming.

Don't just copy/paste the same boring welcome message. If you want to be a DIC greeter, take the time to reply to each persons introduction. You don't have to reply to every one of them. And whatever you do, don't reply to more than a few at a time, it annoys people looking at the "View New Posts" page when you flood it with 20 replies to introductions. Just have fun with it and make people feel welcome!

Ask the people that just say "Hi" to tell a little about themselves.

The introduce yourself forum is our front door. So show our new members what DIC is all about and welcome them to our community! You never know, you might meet a new friend or someone that can help you with your own projects.

Oh, and about that DIC Greeter thing. If you don't mind taking the time to genuinely welcome people to dream.in.code, then I don't mind genuinely giving you a free DIC++ subscription and the "Greeter" badge if you don't already have a badge :)
