This page is about wikimedia user feed back on welcome messages.

Archive 1 - Archive 2

The Commons runs a "welcome bot" that automatically posts a {{welcome}} message to all registered users who have made at least one edit. We want to make this message as effective as possible to maximise its usefulness and minimise new user mistakes and confusion.

If you have received a welcome message, you are welcome to comment on the message here. As well as general feedback, you might like to answer these questions:

  1. Do you read welcome messages, skim over them or ignore them?
  2. Did you find our welcome message useful? Did it tell you something you didn't know before but might need to know?
  3. Is there other information which you think it is vital for new users to know, which our welcome message doesn't currently include?

Post like this:

Thank you!

Admins: once you've dealt with a feedback, please make a note, so that other admins know there's no need to responding to it.


User:Simply south[edit]

  1. read/skim
  2. Yes and I'm not sure
  3. The waiting period and other things to do with uploading
  • More human operators
A human welcome, Simply south. You will find information about the waiting period here, wich is available at the "first steps help file" link at the welcome message. Sorry, but it's impossible to quote all desired links at the welcome message. --GeorgHHtalk   09:55, 4 April 2008 (UTC)


  1. I read the welcome messages multiple times over many days-especially the link request message.
  2. The Messages provided lots of information but didn't help me find an answer to the link request which I have been trying to comply with.
  3. Being completely new to the Wikis, it would be nice to know how to contact the Wiki support person who notices issues about our accounts so that we can learn how to address them in the future!
  4. If SOMEONE can PLEASE let me know what I am doing wrong with my categories and links?! I added many hidden and visible categories and nothing seemed to happen. Also, please let me know how to get out of what looks like a bad place to be-with "Orphans" in my Gallery pathname! I'd appreciate it! I wrote to Admin support over the weekend but didn't hear back... I'd like to be sure I'm set up properly! THANK YOU!!!!the preceding unsigned comment was added by LindaLisa (talk • contribs)

(Rangakuvara (talk) 02:47, 30 August 2013 (UTC)) Dear in spite of so much of instructions a person like me find it difficult to follow. The lapse is due to two main reasons. 1. You have allowed a very common man with limited knowledge to edit and contribute the articles. No qualifications whatsoever. 2. The rules are very elaborate and not users friendly. Eg : I'm referring a pic to be uploaded in my article Dr. William Lawrence Balls, a great British Cotton breeder, Scientist, of 1902 time. He was working at Egyptian cotton fields from his childhood days, and his contributions are immense. I wanted to show the world that here is one such great scientist. Because of your cumbersome rules,(Like our Govt. of India rules, framed long back and not modified to this day) it is impossible to this day. There should be some way. The intentions should be good that's all. Copy right etc, in your rules colums make me sick. You should be able to resolve and help to fix the pic of such importance.

User:Leo Joahnnes[edit]

  1. I read a little, not the whole at once.
  2. Yes, how to rename an image (someone taught me, but I forgot and saw it on the welcoming message).
  3. No, I dont think so. Maybe a link to COM:FP and COM:QI, like "Here you can see our best images:".
  • I already was an active user in Wikipedia, and therefore I already knew much about wikis (how to edit, categorize, put on watchlist..) and a little about Commons. Best wishes, Leo Johannes 19:21, 3 May 2008 (UTC)


Hallo Danke für das E-Mail. Bitte um Entschuldigung dass ich nicht gleich reagiert habe. Auf meiner Diskussionsseite habe ich die Nachricht schon gelesen und zur Kenntnis genommen. Wusste aber nicht wie ich darauf reagieren soll. Ich bin hier vollkommen NEU. Muss mich erst mit allen Gepflogenheiten vetraut machen. Bei Texten die in Englisch geschrieben sind warte ich meistens auf meine Tochter, damit sie es mir korrekt Übersetzt. Gruss von Walter Huber


  1. Thank for receiving me in Wikimedia, I sure will be a productive mmber of this institution
  2. Gracias for recibirme en Wikimedia, suguro sere un miembre util para todos en esta organización


There needs to be a way to guest log in using your Wikipedia account on all the Wikipedia sister projects, and have your username maybe Wikipedia-{username} and it create maybe a Wikipedia user page maybe {user}/wikimedia, wikionary, etcScientus 23:44, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

The welcome message was nice, and I read it and it told me some things I didn't know about Commons. But I think you should know that I've never edited or even created an account on Commons before. My account was created by... unified login.


  1. Yes - skim and revisit
  2. Yes - Babel and listing abilities by image type are new to me
  3. A link to Userboxes (hard to find if you don't know what they're called), also is it possible with unified login to have a unified user page?

Combined with the fact that the default preference is to e-mail users about messages they receive on Commons, this means I saw the message as the result of a puzzling e-mail in my inbox. You may want to send the welcome only to people who are actually editing on Commons. If every project did this, then everyone who unified their login would be getting all kinds of messages: "Welcome to Wikiquote!" "Welcome to Wikispecies!" "Willkommen bei Deutsche Wikipedia!" (probably got the German wrong there, but whatever.) That could get silly fast. Rspeer 18:50, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

user: Markus Schulenburg[edit]

1. Yes 2. Yes 3. Localize the "Welcome Message"

--Markus Schulenburg (talk) 16:20, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

The welcome message is available in many (dozens) languages. There are links to it on your talk page. Because the language you speak is unknown at the time of account registration, we cannot provide you with a localised version on your talk page. Please click the language link in the Enlish message to get a localised version. Cheers! Siebrand 08:56, 13 August 2008 (UTC)


  1. Skimmed first, then saw this, then went back and read them properly.
  2. It's nice to be greeted with some basic information. I know I can go grab it all just by ctrl-clicking "my talk" up the top.
  3. Nothing springs to mind!
  • I'm an en wiki user who's branching out to other wikimedia projects as the whim grabs me, which is made VERY easy by the Unified Login. (I would like to see the "New Messages" note made universal, somehow. Even if the talk pages are still separate, it'd be great if it could say "You have new messages on Commons" or whatever, regardless of which wikimedia project I'm looking at.) The welcome note invited me to put Babel boxes on my user page, which I probably otherwise wouldn't have done, but which I will now. Might be of value to someone to know that I only speak English... unless you count the myriad (almost literally - well, alright, not 10,000, but certainly well over a hundred) computer programming languages I know.

  • In fact the message answered to some questions I had in mind. Well done. Thanks for this nice job.

Technical problem[edit]

I just logged in here for the first time under unified login from Wikipedia-en.

The text of my welcome message is invisible (with whatever I was previously looking at showing through) until it is highlighted or, in the case of the links, the mouse is moved over them.

Ubuntu Firefox, Javascript disabled.

I have not yet seriously attempted to find the source of this problem.--QuantumEngineer (talk) 14:30, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Looks fine to me on your talk page under Windows XP on Firefox with javascript disabled. ----Digon3 talk 14:45, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

This appears to be caused by the Welcome/lang template: removing it fixes the problem, at least in the preview. Furthermore, it also affects other pages using similar language selection templates, including such important pages as Commons:Village pump, Commons:Welcome, Commons:Upload and Help:Contents, though not the Main Page. I have turned off the edit toolbar (the only default option that says it requires JavaScript) to no effect.--QuantumEngineer (talk) 15:03, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

After experimenting on a copy at User:QuantumEngineer/langtest, I have found that the problem is triggered by zh-hant (traditional Chinese?) characters inside <small>...</small> tags (it affects User:QuantumEngineer/langtest2 but not the current version of User:QuantumEngineer/langtest).--QuantumEngineer (talk) 15:42, 17 October 2008 (UTC)


  1. (Skimmed at first, but then came back to read it when I needed it.)
  2. (The First steps tutorial and the link to the First Steps really helped me when I first joined.)
  3. (Looks pretty good to me.)

Automatic welcoming[edit]

This idea is great, and it's worked quite well as I have observed. It sends a message upon creating a new account. Cool!

Done! (talk) 04:31, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

  1. Some times I read, some times I skim over them.
  1. I found things I didn't know, but could live without (not that it was not useful, just wasn't crucial).
  1. As a new user, I don't know.

  1. I did indeed read the welcome notice, and I am grateful to Wikipedia for this bot.
  2. There is so much I don't know that I'm sure I'll be using it and making discoveries for years.
  3. I'll have to come back to that. I'm too new to comment.
  • I'd love to have a better username. Am I stuck with this one?

Dahile00 (talk) 22:29, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

It can be changed at Commons:Changing username. --pfctdayelise (说什么?) 02:38, 31 January 2009 (UTC)


  1. I read the welcome message and many of the linked pages. I will eventually read all of them, plus a whole lot more pages in the Commons: namespace.
  2. Yes, and probably.
  3. Well, I'm a bit partial to a page called Commons:Editor's index to Commons. (My opinion is not clouded by the fact that I created the page here. You mustn't doubt me.) The index may be a bit overwhelming to the brand-new user on first glance, but so is the {{welcome}} template in its current form. I don't think anyone will read all the linked documents and absorb them in the first sitting. Most users will probably have to come back to the welcome template repeatedly over the course of days or weeks.
  • I appreciate the proactive, automatic welcome. It might be interesting to have progressively more detailed templates to send automatically to users as they hit higher milestones of edit count, e.g. 100, 500, and 1000 edits. Users with significant activity are more likely to be serious about reading the friendly manuals, less likely to be frightened by the truth of how complex Commons is, and probably in need of more technical detail. Maybe they could look at the Editor's index without fainting dead away.

--Teratornis (talk) 04:00, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

As a cautionary note, I might add that the {{welcome}} template makes this claim which borders on over-selling:
  • "This is a wiki—it is really easy."
I agree that the purely mechanical aspects of editing on a wiki are pretty simple, but Commons users can run into thorny questions about copyright, licensing, and so on, which can become arbitrarily difficult, depending on what a user wants to do. Check out some of the tougher questions on the Help desk. --Teratornis (talk) 00:08, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Not a big fan of this to be completely honest-having edited on Wikipedia it's fine, but as a new user seems to be very overwhelming & way too much information to start. I think just a nice welcome message with a few links to get started-new users don't want to read massive manuals etc. Just my two cents! Dottydotdot (talk) 19:56, 30 April 2009 (UTC)


  1. I read them but as I have created the account just after finding a page that needed something edited I edit that page immediately after and then I return to the page where the welcome message was and read it slower clicking on links. I have made that edit now so I can answer to the message now.
  2. What I found most useful was the Goodies, tips and tricks section.
  3. It could probably tell me something else I don't know, and how could I know what that was?

User:Schuiass P.Ubdoo[edit]

  1. I read them.
  2. Yes I did, I didn't know that explained in the Goodies, tips and tricks section.
  3. It could tell which userboxes exist on commons.

User:Utahraptor ostrommaysi[edit]

  1. I read them, as they often have some bit of information (or many bits of information) that helps me use the project they refer to better.
  2. It helped me with signing my name (I never really thought about it before), those babel box things and how to correct mistakes in the name of a file.
  3. I don't think so. The welcome message I got does a pretty good job of explaining things.

Utahraptor ostrommaysi (talk) 14:40, 17 May 2009 (UTC)


  1. Read it on an other users page.
  2. yes
  3. didn't think about that
  • The message begins with "Hi", so it should end also with a greeting (e.g. "Greetings, your Wikimedia commons - team" or something like that). --Carbenium (talk) 10:08, 28 May 2009 (UTC)


Thank you for this Welcome flower collar, the music, the fruit juice and the Vahinés.
1* I read it, and will have to read it again several times in order to fully undertand it, as my level in english is poor.
2** It is already very interesting.
3*** Is there any workshop to which you can participate if ever you do not have any graphical skill : translating, for instance. Others ?
Thanks again, anyway, to all of you for all that you already realized, and thanks in advance for continuing. I'm still amazed, and everyday a little more.

  3. I don't think so. I think it's well done.
  • Thank you for this Welcome message.

User: Nakerlund[edit]

  1. I glanced at it quickly
  2. Yes, the information is useful, but also overwhelming.
  3. I think a lot of users would like to know if it is alright to delete the welcome message and how to do it.

I think the welcome message is basically a great idea, but not in its current form. It feels like a big sign rather than a friendly message. Since it is aimed at a user personally, a more informal language would work better. The template would be better for a "Getting Started" page, which an informal welcome message could link.


  1. Read
  2. Yes, how to switch to native language  ;-)
  3. How to rightly upload new language version of existing image (.svg)?

If it's because I didn't sign with four tilde's that's because it looked like it was going to go into the page itself and I didn't think that was right.

Info appreciated.

I appreciate the detailed welcome page. I just have a request/suggestion: the licensing information was very difficult to navigate.

  • General comment -- It would be helpful in getting a sense of a new user if the welcome message had a date tag.

  1. Read.
  2. Certainly. Quite a useful guideline.
  3. Yes, add as much as you can, and highlight the information for the perfect newbies, for one might read the very bacics and eventually proceed to some difficult matters.

  1. First I ignored it. I have read it months after my registration now.
  2. Yes, it's useful. Didn't know the Common Sense Tool before.
  3. Hm, in my case it would have been useful to get to know where to find the category of graphics which have to be vectorized (or that there is one at all). But that's very special of course. I think the welcome message is ok like it is now. It shouldn't be too long.

  1. I skim over them, I only use them when I need help.
  2. Even though I can find most of the things on my own, it is useful as a backup/dashboard.
  3. Not that I can think of now.
  • It might be better to place the language section at the bottom of the template, or male it partly unfoldable. It takes quite some space right now.

this means: tour, tutorial, FAQ, help desk, community, chat, talk to an online admin. better, and no need for translation. everyone understands it.

1.Do you read welcome messages, skim over them or ignore them?
I like welcome messages, but not if I get it from Bots. It's not personal and kinda cold-hearted if a real person don't have the time to say hello :'-(
2.Did you find our welcome message useful? Did it tell you something you didn't know before but might need to know?
Yeah, it is useful. But I knew everything before :P
3.Is there other information which you think it is vital for new users to know, which our welcome message doesn't currently include.
Not really.

Does anybody actually read this messages?[edit]

Well... while looking at this "feedback", I was wondering, wether anybody actually reads this... If not, couldn't we simply remove the option? abf «Cabale!» 20:32, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Actually this page should be User_talk:Wikimedia_Commons_Welcome, IMO bots need a writable talk page for feedback. At the moment User_talk:Wikimedia_Commons_Welcome is a protected redirect to a protected dummy User:Wikimedia_Commons_Welcome page. The user page should state the bot owner if applicable — maybe "welcome" is a special case. In other words, please don't disable the feedback, just use the normal way to "talk" with bots. -Be..anyone (talk) 02:41, 19 March 2011 (UTC)



Hi, good tips in the "welcome" box, thanks. I think you can replace the convoluted "gallery" link by Special:MyUploads now. If there is a good place to find essential templates like {{edit request}} add it, please. -Be..anyone (talk) 02:27, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

A F K When Needed[edit]

  1. Initially ignored, later skimmed over it. Needless to say I have taken the time to read it before posting here.
  2. No, no.
  3. No.

My talk page looks like a help page because some script threw up on it. This is not actually welcoming. ...why not just take the contents of the welcome message, make them a page in it's own right, then link to it in a nice message which is actually welcoming and friendly.

I thought it was called a "welcome" bot... I don't feel welcome; if I was not experienced at other wikis I would only feel intimidated. A F K When Needed (talk) 16:23, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

User:Martijn Hoekstra[edit]

  1. I briefly glanced at them
  2. Possibly
  3. No

What A F K said, link the thing. I particularly like the earlier idea of this bot welcoming other bots. The bots probably feel very welcome when they are welcomed by one of there own (this might also be the case for humans). Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 21:17, 21 March 2011 (UTC)


  1. I read the welcome messages
  2. Yes, but I would like to find easier to get organized on wikipedia.
  3. Yes: You should include some FUNNY readings about wikipedia humor and how beginners do often feel treated by experienced wikipedians who often prefer to put negative banners than to offer corrections or help

  3. (More info is needed, but I don't think the welcome is the proper place for it, the welcome msg. shall (and often do) contain links and a strong recommandation to read the contents of those)

  1. I just skimmed over them.
  2. As I dint know much about commons before, it was useful.
  3. It pretty much summarizes all a newbie needs to know.
  • Overall, useful.

  1. Do you read welcome messages, skim over them or ignore them?
  2. Did you find our welcome message useful? Did it tell you something you didn't know before but might need to know?
  3. Is there other information which you think it is vital for new users to know, which our welcome message doesn't currently include?


  1. yes , i read. but it should be more attractive.
  2. yup its usefull.
  • u should give more info.Thanks.


  1. (Yes, I read them. With all of the Wiki jargon, I find it difficult to omprehend what it is trying to tell me)
  2. (Yes, I think I did fnd the message useful. I at least know that I am being seen.)
  3. (Too many of the instructions seem to presume the reader is a Wiki insider. Start all insturctions with an overview of all the steps in the process. For, example, many instructions for inserting a picture never mention you have to first upload the image to the Wiki Commons)
  • (Just reduce the Wiki jargon. )



I've got a dozen damn edits on commons and 60k on en-wiki. I don't need "welcoming" to a project when I only turned up to do one thing.

  1. I skimmed most of it, ignored some.
  2. The message was useful, I would've never known what a Babel Box is.
  3. I think it was a very nice message, if I need to I'll skim it again.


  1. (When I discover them, I skim, read as time-at-moment allows. If I can (and seems relevant/helpful), I follow most relevant links, etc.)
  2. (Yes. Info about Babel. I set it up on both my pages.)
  3. (The Babel info would have been helpful to know when seeing "set up page." The mark-up instructions are not as intuitive as you may believe they are, at least not for a new user. I believe this is more of a barrier to contribution than you may estimate. e.g., I had to change this 3 times, to figure out how to get rid of the blue-box around this text.)
  • (Re BABEL: There's a category I would call 0.5 = Rudimentary reading comprehension, but may need to reply, at least partially, in another language. I believe it is commonly-known/agreed that we develop listening-comprehension more rapidly than develop ability to speak in a language. GENERAL: Advise what are best ways for someone to contribute who may have extensive knowledge about something, knowledge gained through personal experience or "self-taught", but not know Authoritative sources. Would best contribution be creation of stub on topic? What if article already exists, but content - or even organization or underlying assumptions - conflicts with person's experienced-knowledge? Need to know how/where to make general suggestions/comments that don't apply to "editing-Feedback link" at top of a specific page. Thank you for the welcome message and the information it contains.)

  2. is helpful, although I got my lessons in German already
  3. have to find out which ones were missing
  • on this page: There might be a button on top of page where you click to start editing on the bottom. And it would be nice to find this button on every discussion page.
  • major question: can I combine my user homepages into one single (I created an English and a German user home page but not another one in WP Commons)? and if yes: how? I would prefer to have only one single user page with its subpages for all Wikipedia projects under my German home page (or beaming/mirroring my German into all others). Definitely I will not create another homepage here under Wikipedia Commons. And not in the French Wikipedia. And not in the ... others.
  • How to cite a Wikipedia page from another Wikipedia project? How to cite a user page between the different WP projects?

  1. Ignored most, skimmed some
  2. Not useful to me, Didn't tell me anything new beause I didn't plan on doing much besides uploading my own images
  3. No. It's very good for users who would be more invested


  1. I have used Wikipedia for many years and even argued for the acceptence as a reference in scientific articles. Still I did create pages for my own intresst, so I had not lookt at the ruels as I have now.
  2. The welcome might have seemed a bit at ease for me. Since being an academic I would not have been scared of with a slap on the fingers. (I guess that is this part, and if planned; well done.)
  3. Maybe press the fact harder that it's information for all not for one... I did not read the welcome enought to criticize it in anyway.
  • The articals i have comented on and the once I have created is mostly out of personal frustration, created by the lack of respect and recognition that I have forgoten the inportence of prof to my claims.


  1. Completely ignored.
  2. Didn't bother with it.
  3. N/A
  • Wasn't actually intending to contrib here, might be nice to wait until someone edits before you welcome them.


  1. I do read them, but quite shortly first and intensify that later.
  2. On second reading I fount that the entry about Babel contains a method to indicate my graphic abilities. I expect to find more in future.
  3. Not currently.

I have been trying to figure out what licence tag to add. In vain.

My opininion on the subject of copyright licences: Wiki commons puts the responsability for possible infractions on copyright legislation with volunteers like me.

This is not fair.

I could give all possible information on a file I would like to upload; To put this information in the legally required format ( in wiki language a “tag” ) should not be left to me. I am not competent to do so.

First of all, i cannot put the image with PD-self, because the image was created by my client, and he asked me to uploaded it to his wiki page. Ok, i made a mistake by not tagging it. This time, however i uploaded it again, using Threshold of Originality: For anything that does not fit in any of the above use

PD-icon.svg This file is ineligible for copyright and therefore in the public domain, because it consists entirely of information that is common property and contains no original authorship.

. If there is a problem with this too, please don't delete the image, just let me modify it with PD-self, or explain to my client how he can upload it himself with a PD-self tag.

Thanks, Joseph-Alex
