Interesting. Some links you may want to include in your welcomings:

Hang on, on Ye Olde Wiki I said something like "if you have any questions, feel free to ask me" and I ended up removing that because that's what the help desk was for. So, how is this any different? Couldn't we just leave the aforementioned part off, or am I missing something? Is there like no help desk here or something?--DeLoreanz1 12:10, 11 Oct 2004 (MST)

Yes, there is a Help Desk, but they can ask anyone. →FireBird'

AIEEEE! I didn't realize I wasn't logged in!!!

IP address that belongs to Homsar999

Is there a reason, Homsar999, you put this here? Please keep these things on your user space. →FireBird'

Cookie-cutter welcome statements?

Is there a reason for specifying that we should only use the provided welcome messages? I've always felt that a welcome should be personalized. I realize there's a need for some standardization in our welcoming efforts. Perhaps there should be a standard set of links that must be included in a proper welcome, but beyond that I think it should be up to the committee members to provide a warm and welcoming message. Does this make sense? JoeyDay (Talk) 11:33, 2 Dec 2004 (MST)

Yeah, I fixed this. →FireBird'

Joining; Alphabetising

How do I join? Also, is it OK for me to alphabetise the list of welcomers? -woddfellow2| 02:02, 9 Jan 2005 (MST)

You just have to sign your name to the list to join. And the list is chronological. -- Tom 09:22, 9 Jan 2005 (MST)
OK, I'll join now. -woddfellow2| 14:40, 9 Jan 2005 (MST)

Joining/template

I am joining and adding a template! Typing {{Welcome}} now displays

Part my what?

Uh... okay, I'm not looking to insult him, but is pertmywert really Welcoming Committee material? So far, the only thing even close to a relevant page that he's ever updated is Talk:Anonymous, where his comment was pointless, and Graffiti Wall, where he added wrong info. Plus, of the three people he's attempted to Welcome, two have been around longer than he has! And his message is horribly misspelled. I suppose it's really up to him if he wants to Welcome people, but... --Anonymous Contributor (though figuring out my identity shouldn't be THAT hard if you know where to look.)

Well

I am Just Trying to be nice me "Anonymous". It's hard to tell who has been here forever and who has not. Please feel free to come to my talk page and tell me what the heck is wrong with me trying to welcome people. Even though some of them have been here longer than me, I still told them they had a talk page. Hyrulian even wrote back to me sayign it was nice that I welcomed him even though he had been here for longer than me. I am just trying to fit in wiht this wiki. Other wiki's for other sites don't hate me, I am one of the leaders at the other wiki's. Please stop being so mean to me. Thanks pertmywert[[]]
