|Forums: Index > DCAU Wiki Discussion > Welcoming of new users gone crazy|
Admin here may wish to look into how the automatic welcome tool is working on this wiki. You currently have automatic welcoming disabled (via MediaWiki:welcome-user) despite the fact that you've taken the time to actually create MediaWiki:Welcome-message-user.
So you've got a pretty awesome welcome message, but it's not getting to anyone.
Instead, what's happening is something rather confusing. User:Wikia, the bot that does all the welcoming across Wikia, is putting a small bit of text on every new user's page. But that text makes little sense. It's housed at MediaWiki:Welcome-user-page. What it does is take the first article that a person has edited and put it into a ograse which then creates the user page. So, I edited, "The Last Laugh" first. My user page now says, completely nonsensically",
- "The Last Laugh's contributions". When you click that, it of course goes nowhere, because no user is called "The Last Laugh".
