PS: Why is my name still red???


I can't remember what you require in the way of ++ Criticalmass72 (talk) or //, and the instructions have now disappeared. The questions have disappeared too, so I cannot now answer them.

User:Norbert Südland

  • 1.Yes, I try to read and understand all information.
  • 2.Now I find no possibility to look at your next question. You should start to improve the transparency of your system.

  • I think it's all right! Thanks :) --Gurgut 07:58, 30 August 2007 (UTC)


  • 1. c (And here, on this page, the example of "Yes" doesn't fit the options.)
  • 2. No, I didn't, as I didn't read it; I've no intention of reading through more than a screen of unsolicited data. No, it didn't, as I didn't read it; I've no intention of reading through more than a screen of unsolicited data.
  • 3. Vital information would be: Where there's a page with such information as has now been plastered on this discussion page. (And here, on this page, the example shows four lines of answers, but there are three lines of questions.)


It seems someone edited the example to put their own answers in. I've changed it back now to be a generic thing. pfctdayelise (说什么?) 11:53, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
OK, except that 2 is two questions, so you'd expect two "(answer)"-s. Mysha


1. Yes, I red 2. It's useful. It inspired me to gategorize my images 3. I don't have anything special in mind. The help pages are useful, it just takes time to crawl them troughHtm 03:30, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Sprecht Ihr denn kein Deutsch hier?

Fragt sich: Wiglaf Droste 12:56, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Almost everyone speaks English here, so that's what we tend to use, aber viele sprechen auch Deutsch. :) Wenn du lieber auf Deutsch schreibst, ist das normalerweise kein Problem. Du kannst z.B. auf der Help Desk-Seite auch Fragen auf Deutsch stellen. Übrigens kann man das User-Interface auf Deutsch umstellen (passiert automatisch, wenn du von kommst). Liebe Grüße, Ddxc 03:48, 10 December 2007 (UTC)


  • 1. (skim over )
  • 2. (no)
  • 3. (no)
  • I believe most wikimedia commons users are already experirenced in wikipedia, which shares similar format and rules.

I do hope they can make it share "common account" so i don't need to make a new one :( but it's too late now. Anyway, a welcome message is always warm and make you feel like home. Thank you ^ ^ --Delacour 19:49, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

about the code of this template - sobre el código de esta plantilla

Hello! Thanks for the welcome message, but this code at the end of the template didn't work:

{| cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" style="margin:0em 0em 1em 0em; border:1px solid #cccccc; background-color:#f9f9f9; width:100%"

so anybody could fix it? (I'm not a wiki expert, though ;_') Cheers, this project is a good job! ºRYueli'o 05:50, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

¡Hola! Gracias por el mensaje de bienvenida, pero la siguiente parte de código de la plantilla no funcionó:

{| cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" style="margin:0em 0em 1em 0em; border:1px solid #cccccc; background-color:#f9f9f9; width:100%"

¿alguien podría revisarlo? (Es que no soy experto en la wiki ;_') ¡Felicitaciones por su buena labor! ºRYueli'o 05:50, 8 December 2007 (UTC)


  • 1. I skim them.
  • 2. I found 1 or 2 things.
  • 3. No. :)
  • Comment: I find welcome messages a little patronizing since I've been active on Commons and Wikipedia for a while. Also, it would be a lot more personal if it was just one sentence with a link to the info page, rather than dumping (substing) large amounts of wiki code on my talk page. :) (In German, I would say "ich fühle mich getextbausteinigt". ^_^)


  • 1. Read thoroughly
  • 2. Very useful (and I am an experienced user on the English-language Wikipedia).
  • 3. More info on linking to other Wikithings
  • keep up the good work!

Kanġi Oĥanko

  • 1. I sure will keep this on my user page as I may need to read those tutorials, guidelines etc. over and over again.
  • 2. I regret that though I already put two simple (not for me, by the way) questions about adding comments to a file and licensing, I haven't received any answer from both addressees, 555 and Juergen Lehle. For the first question, about adding a comment to the caption — precisions, actually — under the [[Image:Orenair B735 VP-BGR.jpg]], I guess I may do it anyway and see what happens. Hope I will not be called a vandal…
  • 3. I fear that when I will need further help, my question would be up in the air forever, as is my adoption request remains without any offer for quite some time (see there); a request I reiterated today.
  • I may be thickheaded, but would be nice if you gave simple explanations in everyday language in the help pages. I guess I am not the only one round here without legal and technical expertise.

  • 1. I skim them.
  • 2. No, but that's only because I read the information it covered beforehand.
  • 3. No; the help file covers everything I could think of.
  • The design is quite nice. I don't have a suggestion for the help template, but I do have a suggestion for this very page. Why not

instead of the current layout? It seems silly not to use 1. 2. 3 instead of built-in ordered lists. NousernamesIeft 18:39, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

✓ Done Good idea, the list form was changed. Thank you. --GeorgHHtalk   21:04, 21 January 2008 (UTC)


  1. Always! Which of these, depends. ;-) Most of the time I read it, though.
  2. Since I read a lot on Wikipedia, Commons etc before - no. If I was unexperienced, probably yes.
  3. May be for others, but I'm fine.
  • Regards to the bot SieBot - and whoever reads this! :-)

✓ Done I've read it, and I'm happy that's all alright for you with the welcome message. Thanks for your feedback! --GeorgHHtalk   16:01, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Maximillion Pegasus

  1. Always.
  2. I have read a lot on Wikipedia and a pretty good amount on Commons, so no, for completely new users, I would probably say yes.
  3. It covers things very effectively.
  • I love commons and all Wikimedia projects, and would donate if I was able to. Cheers.

Maximillion Pegasus 03:36, 14 February 2008 (UTC)


  1. I usually skim over them.
  2. Yes, I found some useful links.
  3. Any I can't think of right now.
  • Thanks for the welcome.

Purgossu 14:47, 16. Feb. 2008


  1. I read through it thoroughly. I am somewhat new to the Wikimedia way of doing things.
  2. It was useful. As I said, I am new around here.
  3. I'm not really sure but it currently answers my initial queries.

Thanks for your notice. It seems that Image:Nuvola gnome-fs-trash-full.svg has an error in it's code, we try to fix it. --GeorgHHtalk   18:03, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
It seems fine to me (at least, it does now - I didn't check before). It Is Me Here 19:36, 17 April 2008 (UTC)


Honestly, it feels like a robot standing on a door to say hello and shake your hand for, say, 5 minutes. Perfectly smiling all the time. Sounds like there is no reason to complain - it was smiling, was friendly, everything. But it's still a robot. And a bunch of text added (almost like 5 minutes of hand shaking). I would suggest to have robots sending automated welcome messages to other new bots. Let them say their greetings to each other. In other words, I didn't like the automated welcome message.--Nerva 14:24, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
