Welcome to Miraheze[edit source]

Hello, Bongo Cat, and welcome to Miraheze! Miraheze is a free, non-for-profit wiki hosting service. If you would like to start a wiki please fill in this form or, if you'd like to contribute to an existing wiki, please see a few wikis here or the full list of wikis here. Note that (private) wikis aren't accessible unless you are given access, and closed wikis cannot be edited.

For more information, please see our FAQ. If you have any additional questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact us.

You are encouraged to create your user page, whether here on Meta (visible only when on Meta), or your global user page that visible on any Miraheze wiki where a user does not have a local user page and provided that the wiki has the GlobalUserPage extension enabled and, additionally, where the wiki is not using the SocialProfile extension. Should you decide to create your global user page on Loginwiki and wish for it to replace your Meta user page, simply add the {{delete}} template to the top of your Meta user page by copying and pasting this code ({{Delete|1=Author requests deletion, or author blanked.}}), and an administrator should delete it promptly (usually within 24 hours).

If you have any questions, after first reviewing FAQ and the help center, please don't hesitate to ask at the community noticeboard, but please be sure to end all new topics or replies you make on talk pages, user talk pages (like this one), and noticeboards with four tildes (~~~~) to include both (a) a username and (b) a properly formatted timestamp for our talk page archiving bot.

Thanks,

Wait what? Didn't this account already registered a long time ago? Anpang Talk 10:05, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Anpang: Yes, he registered his account around 2 months ago, according to some information that I installed on my global.js awhile back. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 11:04, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Bongo (aka multiple, much older aliases) has been registered for a long time, much more than two months. I might suspect this is a misfire of a greeting script, and to be honest I've never been fond of canned greet scripts anyways. --Raidarr (talk) 11:11, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I have been on MH since late 2020. -- Cheers, Bongo Cat ( TalkContribs ) 16:21, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
For what it's worth, I wouldn't fault アンジェロ先輩 for the welcome for a couple reasons. Bongo Cat, a.k.a. Bukkit/Pepperoni Justin/WikiJS, as Raidarr noted, has been around for Miraheze for about a year, but he does have a lot of alternate accounts, and the usernames don't follow a prescribed pattern one can reasonably discern as being alternate accounts. Those accounts, in turn, were registered many months ago to much more recently. Secondarily, I would also note that while typically {{welcome}} messages are posted within a month or so of a user registering on Miraheze, there's no prescribed timeframe. Though rare, I've also given one or two users a belated welcome to Meta. Dmehus (talk) 16:31, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, alright. I think I’m gonna request locks of my other alt accs soon on the SN. -- Cheers, Bongo Cat ( TalkContribs ) 16:40, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
To be clear, my comment wasn't directed just at your reply, but to this thread and to all participants generally. You can self-request locks if you want, but I don't think that's necessarily the best. Ideally, you should create global user pages with the alternate user account template that points to your primary account, as that would at least give users/patrolling users a better sense of whether this is a new-ish user or an old hat, so to speak. :) Dmehus (talk) 16:44, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I add that is ugly to have an empty talkpage... アンジェロ先輩 (talk) 21:56, 12 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
