Dear Harbans ji,

Great work! ...and you will receive the WikiBuddy badge shortly.

In the mean time please see the list of new WE users at http://wikieducator.org/Special:Log/newusers, there you will find new user names in red or blue colour. The red colured user name means the user is yet to add content on their user page. The blue link means the new user has added content on his/her user page.

  • Please select one or two blue coloured user names from the list and add a greeting message and some tips to practice editing on their discussion pages.
  • For new users, while clicking the user name, the discussion link as seen on the top of the user page shall be red in colour since the page is empty. While clicking the red link you will be shown two options viz start a new discussion and view archived threads.
  • Please click on the new discussion link and add your message

Warm regards

Many of the new users that have not created user pages (and therefore are displayed in red, AKA redcoats) are spammers. Please do not create new discussions on their user pages because it makes it more difficult to clean up spam. Thanks.
