Welcome Team

We are the iPeace Welcome Team who post the 'official' welcome message to each and every new member.

WHO WE ARE and WHAT WE DO. === PLEASE READ

We are active volunteers from all over the world who welcome new members to the iPeace network. We use a pre-written message - you do NOT write your own. We work from 5 minutes to a few hours at a time several times a week or more often when we find it necessary. We don’t have rigid schedules and all help is much appreciated!

FOR NEW MEMBERS of the WELCOME TEAM

A team member will be happy to help you get started. Here is what you should do:

  1. Leave a comment on the Comment Wall below to indicate that you've read this. If we do not see a comment from you, we will assume you did not understand that this is a working group and we may then remove you as a member. We do that to have an accurate count of the pool of active volunteers.
  2. Open the attached file at the end of the Please use THIS code for welcoming discussion below, and save it on your computer's desktop, or as a draft somewhere, in a place that works best for you.
  3. Replace the yyy with your name, in the signature at the bottom of the code you saved on your computer.
  4. Before starting to welcome new members, please go to the Practice posting the code here discussion. As a direct reply to that discussion, paste a copy of what you've saved on your computer. This way, we can all see whether it will look exactly as it should when you welcome a new member.
  5. Then please indicate on the Comment Wall that you've put a practice copy in Practice posting the code here. Mention there if you notice any problems.
  6. Please do not start welcoming new members until a more experienced member of the team has ok'd your sample.
  7. Then you will be ready to paste the code you've saved in each new member's comments box, replacing the XXX, after the Hello near the top, with the new member's name.

FOR ALL MEMBERS of the WELCOME TEAM

Once you have proved that you can use the Standard Welcome Code, here is what you should do:

  1. Please visit this team page often, even when you are not welcoming. You can chat with other members, catch up on any new info, ask questions, or just unwind and relax with the friends you make here.
  2. Indicate on the Comment Wall below when you are ready to do some welcoming. If nobody is actively welcoming, look for the last comment posted below on the Comment Wall with the name of the last new person welcomed. You will begin to the left of that person, working right to left, bottom to top. This way all new members get welcomed in the order they became members and avoids anyone being by-passed.
  3. Note that the newest member of iPeace is the member on the left of the top row of the Members page.
  4. When you stop welcoming, indicate on the Comment Wall below who the last new member you've welcomed is.

This is an active group. That is why any member who remains inactive for one month or more, without justification, may be banned from the welcome team. Do not be hurt or alarmed if you were banned from this group simply because you were not active. We do that because it is the only option available to the Administrators of the group that Ning.com offers to enable the removal of inactive members. We wish to maintain the 'working' aspect of the group. If you want to take an active role in the group again just contact a member of the Administration and your membership of the group will be reinstated.

SPAM: As iPeace grows, spamming will also unfortunately grow. Without the Welcome Team actively checking new members pages, we can not identify all of the spammers. Please report suspected spammers here Reporting this to administration or in the Members Spamming discussion below.

Thank you all for your valued contributions...
...The iPeace Administration team

Maria: I understand.

My PC problems often makes posting difficult,

so that I report scammers first because I think it's important.

--- 

Because of Admin access, David can see immediately

 which profiles have been reported/removed.

---

I think David removes scammers when he has the time;

 not always immediately, as would of course be ideal,

but he does remove all of them.

Marie: Because of my long-term, on-going PC/Internet hassles,

I can only post for a limited time, so it's not always possible to post in this group as well.

Scammers are impossible to get rid of. They will keep returning, especially when they know that there's not immediate Admin control.

If there was 24 hour Admin control, as on other sites, then scammers who have no chance to post their scams & make money/harm others.

Thanks Maria!

 I reported all of the above scammers.

How I wish there was an active Admin to delete these nasties immediately.

They come crawling out of the woodwork all the time.

Am sure they make a lot of money from scamming.

Maria:

The iPeace scammers are back in force;

 one wonders why they seem to enjoy returning here.

Circumstances allowing, I post on their profiles but always report/block/delete them.

THANKS so much for all your hard work on this site!

Comment by G.P. on August 7, 2011 at 1:14am

Maria: The scammers have been going quite crazy on iPeace today!

It seems like one person using the same or other profile names!

One cannot keep up with them but even if I don't post on their profile page & do report/block/delete.

(:-)

Comment by G.P. on July 6, 2011 at 11:23am

Maria:

I always block scammers because I

 don't wish to receive their scams! 

------

Click on the "Block Messages" icon,

found beneath person's name (left side of page).

Maria:

1. I highlight the scammers details;

2. Then click on "Report An Issue", bottom right of page;

3. Then post the scammer's details that I've highlighted in the "Report An Issue" window"; it only takes a few seconds.

------

I no longer post on scammers profiles because it's too time-consuming/have Internet problems.

------

 Scammers are extremely inventive & know how to invade sites.

------

A good method to keep them under control is to screen membership first but this can only be done by Admin.

------

Your method is better than mine, but what matters is that scammers get deleted. They don't care about anyone but themselves & harm so many.

Comment by G.P. on July 4, 2011 at 8:21pm

Maria:

It's been another successful day for scammers on iPeace.

I've reported all of them, but no longer have the time/inclination to post on individual scammers profiles.

Nagaraja Magonhalli:

Maria is one of the most active members who looks after this site & I am deeply grateful to her.

There are many scammers who deliberately hurt others & some of us feel it our duty to warn others because we care about this site very much.

(:-)
