Is there any way we can stop that from happening? It's getting troublesome to keep track in the Recent Changes tab with that thing greeting every anon that makes a post...--TheUltimate3 13:53, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Marking those edits as bot, as well as the ability to stop creation of the automatic userpage is on the ToDo list for Wikia. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Mar 19, 2009 @ 16:52 (UTC)
Another thing...Why is my account used in their message thing?!--TheUltimate3 16:20, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
The greeting is signed by the last active sysop on the wiki. The general idea of that was to get new users to contact admins for help more often. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Mar 20, 2009 @ 21:08 (UTC)
Hi guys -- We just added some new customization to the welcome tool, so now we can make it work the way that you want. I saw that Dantman was deleting user pages, so I turned that piece off in MediaWiki:Welcome-enabled. We can also make User:Wikia a bot, if you want to take it out of Recent changes. Let me know how I can help... -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 22:42, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Aye ok. Just a shock when suddenly I got more traffic on my previously non-important (and ignored) Talk Page, and then found out I was in the greeting.--TheUltimate3 23:02, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, for sure. We sent out a talk page message to give everyone a heads-up that this was coming... but those messages are really easy to dismiss and not pay attention to. Sorry for the shock! -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 23:40, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Ya, bot would be a good setting. Though, it looks like greetings have stopped. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Mar 21, 2009 @ 00:14 (UTC)
Okay, I'll do that. I'm not sure why it's not leaving messages right now... I'll play with it for a minute and see if I can figure it out. -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 00:48, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
