Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

__NOTOC__
== Goal ==
This template can be placed at the top of an article or section that is considered to be merged with another article.
Articles Pages marked with this template will automatically be added to the category [[:Category:Articles to be merged|Articles to be merged]]. Categorisation can be suppressed with the '''nocat''' parameter.
Merging can be done if two articles are found to be similar enough that merging them would aid their maintenance. The merge is done by copying text from one article to another and keeping the first as a redirect page. Normally text from a shorter article is merged into a longer article.
The template is placed at the top of the article to be merged from.
<nowiki>{{</nowiki>'''merge'''<nowiki>|</nowiki>The other article<nowiki>|</nowiki>''Discussion discussion page''<nowiki>|</nowiki>''date={{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}'' <nowiki>|</nowiki>''nocat=''<nowiki>}}</nowiki>
* <tt>'''The ; other article'''</tt>: Name of the article to be merged to.* <tt>'''''Discussion ; discussion page'''''</tt>: Optional name of a discussion page with a section about the merge.* <tt>'''''; date='''''</tt> : Optional date the merge was proposed in <tt>'''m YYYY</tt> ''' format (, for example <tt>'''{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}</tt>)'''. ; nocat: Optionally suppresses automatic categorisation if '''true'''. Useful in examples.
If there is a need for a motivation or a discussion about the merge, do so on the discussion page to the page to be merged from, preferably as a new section named something like ''Merge to &lt;other article&gt;'' and link to the talk page and preferably also to that section with the second parameter.
