I'd like to propose changing the text on the visual editor welcome dialogue (see below) so that it is more relevant to our wiki.


Proposed text:

Anyone can edit, and every improvement helps.
For help editing visit our editing guide!
Thank you for helping players discover more of Geilinor.

Note: Already changed the title to be Welcome to the RuneScape Wiki

Support - Provided the editing link opens in a new tab so as not to take the user away from the page they want to edit, I support. Lava hawk.png BlackHawk (Talk)    15:30, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Support, be bold? - I don't think this really needed a thread when it's clear that RuneScape-themed text would be better than the default here - I would just be bold and change it. You can change the text using MediaWiki:Visualeditor-welcomedialog-content and MediaWiki:Visualeditor-welcomedialog-content-thanks. jayden 16:47, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Support - Gielinor* . Not sure if the wording for the editing guide could be better - that's 3 instances of 'help' in the whole thing. 'Visit our editing guide to learn about editing!' or something idk Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 17:25, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

but then there would still be 3 instances of 'edit(ing)' with my suggestion which would also not be 💯. either way i think that sentence could use some improvement Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 17:35, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
I'd suggest "visit out editing guide to learn how you can improve this page" cqm talk 18:45, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Comment - I'm glad for any input on wording, that's one of the reasons I forumed it, I didn't really like my wording. Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 20:00, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Support - I love the idea of personalising this for the wiki. Legaia2Pla · ʟ · 22:00, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Support - I like cqm's wording, but I think any customization would improve this. Smithing.pngAescopalus talkCrafting.png 20:37, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Closed - The proposal can be implemented. Elessar can pick either his wording or Cam's wording. --LiquidTalk 14:57, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
