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 is intended to be placed on the top of users discussion pages (User talk:<Username>). New users can be found on Special:RecentChanges and in the user creation log.

This will hopefully get users better aquatinted with the wiki's documentation, features and quirks (and maybe even make them skim through the Manual of Style).

Adding this template to a user discussion page will automatically add Category:Users given welcome to the wiki template to that page.

Usage

{{Welcome to the wiki |name= |added-by= |lang= |non-manual= |nocat= }}

All parameters are optional.

name
You can use a different name than the wiki user name used by default if the user on his user page have stated his real or another name.
added-by
Your user name (shown in page history anyway)
lang
Two-letter language code for language to use instead of English.
non-manual
If not empty the template will not state that it was added manually by another user
nocat
If not empty the page will not be automatically categorized
