See this button?
Now, most Kossacks and other folks are perfectly nice and friendly people. But those wearing these buttons are making an additional promise. As belinda ridgewood, the originator of this idea, has said:
"If you see one of us, come up and say 'hi,' and we swear we will be friendly and receptive and not at all scary."Please note that you don't have to be an NN newbie to avail yourself of the Welcome Team. It's plenty easy enough to feel overwhelmed by all the noise and activity, even if you've been several times already.
Here are our team members to date. It's not too late to join! Remember, you'll get this nifty, limited-edition button if you do! Please drop me a Kosmail if you're interested.
Also, my sincere apologies if I've forgotten anyone. If so, let me know and I'll add you to the list ASAP.
No photos are available for 714day and thankgodforairamerica, but they'll be there with their buttons on!
Those with photos:
First, pride of place to the Diva, navajo, our official Daily Kos Director of Community Building:
Since those of you who read the earliest incarnation of this diary saw it in draft form, you can tell that I really will go ahead and add your name and photo upon request. Feel free to volunteer; the appreciation of your community awaits.
UPDATE @ 8:25 PM EDT: We have another member, sidnora! Welcome!
