I recently gained some reviewing privileges here on Biology and really enjoy using them to the best of my ability. I like being fair and giving people - especially new users - the best possible chance at having their question answered.
However, whenever I review the post of a new user I end up giving them a rather stock comment of, "Welcome to Biology S.E.! If you need additional assistance, please visit The Help Center." On occasion, I will change part of that and add something about this was an excellent question or perhaps, that I had to down vote it - in which case, I try to explain why.
My question is: should I be giving the same boring comment to every new user or should I find some way to liven it up a little? Also, is there anything I should add to my welcome? Additional links, information, anything like that?
My apologies if this sounds a little bit basic. I'm just trying to get a feel for what you would write as a reviewer or want written if you were new.
