I've added a page that attempts to organize those of us who often welcome new users to the wiki. I also revamped the welcome template (which is visible on the Committee page) to be more user-friendly. Anyone who has {{welcome}} on their userpage should consider signing up- it's ridiculously easy. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 18:43, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

I have my own template that I welcome users with, so I signed up. Is that ok, or do I have to use the "official welcome template"? I mean I've had my template before the welcome template came out and so I just decided to keep it..Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs

I'm going to throw in 2 cents here and express a hope that those on the "committee" keep in mind that it is unofficial, and also keep in in mind that All editors are equal. Anyone who wants to welcome someone can do so. I am adding this just as a gentle reminder, not to start something.--Degenret01 16:12, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Ilyas: Using the "official" template is just a suggestion, not an order. As Degen said, the committee is more or less an unofficial thing, and you won't get banz0red for using your own template. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 21:04, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Sounds like a great idea. I have two small suggestions, however. Firstly you might want to add a link to the welcoming committee in the Community Portal, it's a bit hard to find otherwise. Secondly, (this is a bit picky :-) ), I'm personally not too keen on the background colour for the new template. What does everyone else think about it? I'd prefer a green or a blue as opposed to aqua, maybe something that matches the standard skin, but that's only a personal opinion. Cheers, Dechaineux Talk 09:30, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Link is now added. As for the color, well, it's reeeal easy to change. The reason I picked light cyan was because I was aiming to make the template more friendly towards those who are being welcomed, and light cyan seemed to be a mellow, "We are professionals and will take care of you" color. If anyone has any better ideas, by all means, try them out. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 15:32, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
