I've noticed a trend of members introducing and welcoming new recruits to giffgaff, I personally think it's a nice touch, but how do the new recruits/members feel about it, do they respond positively about it? Because I've had a couple of recruits myself in the past couple of months and would like to welcome them to forums but I'm reluctant to do so incase I'm 'outing' them and they don't take it positively, so what's members experiences on this?

So don't use their giffgaff member name @isabel1066? I can see why because of all the emails they'd receive, has there been any bad responses from doing this from the new member themselves?
Yes I understand that @isabel1066, but then you're not exactly welcoming your new recruit to the forums either, so a bit pointless in a way is it not? You're basically then just informing fellow members that you've got a new recruit as opposed to welcoming your new recruit/member.
@jokeyboi77 say your new recruit was called @johnr I would put welcome to john avoid the @ one more thing my last recruit was called Alexandria and I didn't add this to her name @ but members went and add this to her name @ which was a totally different person.
Now that would've been a whole lot of confusion for the member being mentioned, maybe a uniformed rule should be introduced for the welcoming of new recruits then @isabel1066 so everyone does know the do's and don'ts and to save further confusion?
@jokeyboi77 I welcome lots of new members and give them a little information on where to find likes of forums I've found that most new members enjoy it and have positive replies when they post its really up to the individual who reads it what they think we try to be as friendly as we can that's what giffgaff is all about learning sharing and chatting amongst the forums hope your having a good Sunday
