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

This template was added manually by another user.

The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.

Goal

This template can be added to the top of user discussion pages as a greeting message.

Adding this template to a user discussion page will automatically add Category:User discussion pages with welcome template to that page.

All parameters are optional.
