I am trying to make the welcome page for the company I work for as helpful and friendly as possible. At the moment, I have written the text in the style of a letter, in the sense that I start with "Hi." and end with "Enjoy CODA, The support team."

Are there any contraindications to doing this?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

My only worry in doing something like this would be if you sacrificed navigation to allow space for the welcome message; it doesn't appear that you've done so at all and I think it's a nice personal touch – Ben Brocka Oct 24 '11 at 17:47
Closing as the link is dead and the question isn't detailed enough without the link content to be useful. – JonW May 1 '14 at 7:49

I actually like it! It gives some sort of personal touch to your website while still putting emphasis on what the site is exactly about. It gives me the feeling that there are actual human beings behind this website, which in a support context is a big plus. I think it's better than the classic "welcome" page.

I don't see any objections.
