Generally in the past I would have just changed this myself (on Template:Welcome Notice) but considering a majority of our users have designed customized welcome templates, I'm posting it here so they can discuss how this would require their involvement.

As with Endasil's recent Yew Grove thread with regards to user hilites and identifying admins and 'crats from those without the rights, I mentioned that it might be good to include a link to information about admins and how they can contact for help on the template.

Comment - To address #2 above and Endasil's idea of a list...we generally welcome all new users anyways with a welcome template of some sort. Just have users add an extra bullet in their welcome notice to provide a link for new users to contact admin, or to learn more about them. This will effectively provide an easy link for every new user. 23:52, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
That's a good idea regardless. Endasil (Talk) @  18:40, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

As mentioned above, this would effectively provide a link to all new users who register the ability to easily find out who is an admin, and where they can seek help.

Proposal - Have users add a link to RuneScape:Administrators to their welcome template should they choose to welcome new users to the community.

Comment - Would RuneScape:Contact us work? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:41, April 19, 2010 (UTC)

I don't see why it wouldn't. bad_fetustalk 14:08, April 19, 2010 (UTC)
It would, but it just provides links to essentially what is already on RuneScape:Administrators. 15:18, April 19, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Provide a link to the RuneScape:Administrator requests page instead? That's pretty much what it's for, and it allows people to get help faster than posting on a sysop's talk. HaloTalk 04:49, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Myself (Degen too I believe) are working on reworking and writing the whole Welcome Notice. Instead of a link to every policy in the book, I think we should give them the basic tips and some tips on how to contact us (Admin requests, IRC & CC). The shorter, and friendlier, the better. More suggestions can be made on its talk page. Chicken7 >talk 09:26, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

Request for closure - All aboard, except for those who haven't voted. Ajraddatz Talk 19:37, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Once myself and some others completely rework the Welcome Template, this won't really matter. Chicken7 >talk 06:26, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
