I'll make this as short and sweet as I can. Right now mailing lists have the ability to send out a welcome mail when someone joins the list. This welcome mail can be used to disseminate information that only needs to be given once.

What I am proposing is to use this same functionality on corporate and alliance levels so leadership doesn't have to worry as much about the distribution of basic information. Bulletins are great and all, but keeping a bunch of information that you just want someone to see when they first join is a waste of space, and the bulletins can usually be used for better things.

Additionally, a custom welcome mail is a lot more impressive and informative; especially when it comes addressed to you and sent by your CEO or alliance executor.

These welcome mails should be sent out as follows:

Corporate Level: When an individual joins a corp, they receive the custom welcome mail.
Alliance Level: When an individual joins a corporation that is in an alliance, they receive the alliance welcome mail.

Thoughts, feedback?

The functionality is there if you join a mailing list, so you can use the feature currently, although you'd need to tell your new corp / alliance members to manually join... but having one auto-sent for new members would be a nice value-add, and *potentially* easy to implement, since similar features already exist in-game.

Yeah I know the feature is there already, and I in fact love it and use it for it's exact purpose. I however don't think you should say to a new member, "By the way join this mailing list to get your welcome mail with all the information you'll need to be successful in our group."

I'd like to be able to include the information in the initial welcome mail when joining the corp/alliance so you don't have to rely on recruiters remembering to distribute the information manually to every single member, which as many people in the large groups in eve know... Information can easily be forgotten to be mentioned.

A corporate and alliance level custom welcome mail would solve this issue, allowing the basic information to be shared quickly, easily and uniformly through all new recruits.

While you are at this, might as well add MotD for corp and alliance channels Wink

Agreed.

There is absolutely no reason why we can't custom tailor a welcome message for incoming members just like it does when it informs an CEO when someone leaves.

Srsly... its needed.

You have my thumb sir.
