My presence

...deserves to be noted. I've OK'ed fandyllic to remove me from the community teams; not to go around saying I'm gone and to disregard my welcome messages. Everything in the welcome messages, minus the forum notes, still applies. Better would be to modify the welcome template I used, and then re-apply it to talk pages.

I agree. I haven't exactly been following whats going on with the welcome messages, I guess they are putting that new template on peoples pages who had the old one? Either way the template shouldn't have a discussion going on on it since that discussing is then being spammed to everywhere the template is used, thats why I moved it to the talk page so that a real discussion can take place. I am sorry if I offended you by moving it. --Ralthor 20:26, 26 April 2006 (EDT)
I rather wanted it substitued (-: I was originally going to just delete the template, but I thought that might spark some controversy that I don't particularily want - hence, making sure that anybody who DOES see the message, also see's that it's partially wrong. The really only relevant point in the tempalte is the the forum isn't something I have online right now, and unless I see some signifigant community interest, I won't ever have online.

Actually, I am not sure why they don't use the original template. I had previously removed the part about the forums on the welcome template since it was no longer applicable, so the current welcome template is fine to use. Using the example of User_talk:Starlightblunder it appears that they are adding the new template to all the pages that had your old on (or at least that is the plan). To be quite honest this is rather ridiculous and I can see why youmight be peeved. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think you have tossed your welcome template on anyones page for several months so it seems rather unneeded to post to everyone who has it that you are 'no longer here for help.' I could see if you had been recently welcoming people and then were 'gone' so that new people wouldn't get confused, but as it is now anyone with your old message has had an account for several months already. They should just start fresh welcoming new members with the welcome template and taking over the job you were once doing. Template should probably be removed. --Ralthor 20:45, 26 April 2006 (EDT)
That's 2 people then, go ahead and post on the template's talk page. The Mentor 20:47, 26 April 2006 (EDT)
