One of the great things about the wiki is that every user can have their own user page! These pages are located in the ''User: namespace'' &mdash; in other words, they all begin with "User:" (yours is [[User:{{PAGENAME}}]]). The appropriate place to write about yourself or your projects is on your user page, or a subpage of that page (e.g., [[User:{{PAGENAME}}/Your Project's Name]]). Please don't create pages about yourself outside the User: namespace. Those pages will be moved into subpages of your user page, and the original [[A/SD|speedily deleted]]. If you want something to be deleted, use [[A/SD|the speedy deletion page]]; that's why Criterion 7 was made.

If there's anything not covered by this introduction, you still have plenty of avenues to find some extra help. [[Project Welcome]] and [[Project Mentor]] are perfect starting points, but if you have something more pressing at hand, don't be afraid to get in touch with the [[Special:Listusers/sysop|administration staff]].

new user help box template

Attention!

if you have followed a link to this page and would like to remove that golden box from your user talk page, this is not the place for you to edit. To remove the welcome box from your user page, follow the link on the my talk link above (the one next to your username, your preferences and other options). Once you are in your user talk page, click on edit and remove this code {{welcomenewbie}} from it.

Usage

Place the following code on any newbie's talk page:

== Welcome to our Wiki ==
{{Welcomenewbie}}
--~~~~

(The {{PAGENAME}} shows up as the page name, which should be their username if this is placed on either the main user page or their talk page.)
