I have new messages.
This is my talk page. I'm talking. Are you?

Thanks! Yeah, I figured there musta been an easier way. Now I'll know for future reference (and knowing's half the battle). --Joezoo 21:39, 24 May 2006 (PDT)

I personally think the welcome thing is a good idea but its been tried in the past and Sysops didn't like it. Also, I think it should really be discussed first before you start doing it. I'm not getting involved or anything, its just some advice cause I think you'll be pulled up about it as others before you have.

Well ok fine but my only suggestion would be change the bit where it says to the effect of 'if you have any problems just ask me' cause that won't go down well. 'Ask a Sysop' or 'feel free to ask any of our friendly users' (ok that one is lame but you get the idea) would be more appropriate I think --Nickb123 (Talk) 12:32, 5 July 2006 (PDT)

No doorman.

Hi and Welcome to LOSTpedia.I am one of the Mighty Sysops and I have noticed you and The Thing have implemented a Welcome template. Sorry to say this but we don't do that here. And I am sorry to inform you that the THing has tried to implement it in the past and has been warned against it. The reason we don't have one is that we don't want a cold template to welcome people, we have a very strong community that has been strenghtened by the people, If a new user wants help it will reach out to the rest and start a personal contact. He has been warned in the past and has done it anyways. Please don't do it again. PLease. Namaste. --†††GodEmperorOfHell††† 08:23, 1 August 2006 (PDT)

I was on a vacation and I did not actually see it until recently. But worry not, NULL was a placeholder until I could come up with something else. I put: 'Feel free to take your shoes off' which is an apparently non sequitur phrase to stimulate conversation. and that's what we need. Remove it from every page was my first instinct, but then I saw it was in hundreds of pages. so, it won't be removed. greet people manually, it will hurt but they will thank it. --†††GodEmperorOfHell††† 09:19, 1 August 2006 (PDT)
