This is the welcome page for new editors. At this point it just has a welcome message that is useful for saying hello and giving a few pointers.

LP:Weclome and LP:New redirect here.

Welcome message

Welcome to [[Libre Pathology]]! 

Here are a few useful pages on editing:
*[[Help:How to edit]] - describes the wiki mark-up.
*[[LP:Format]] - describes the format of the site.  
*[[LP:References]] - shows how references are done.
*[[LP:Sandbox]] - a place to try edits.

Some guidelines:
*[[LP:Be bold]] - just try it out!
*[[LP:Verifiability]] - what to use for references. 
*[[LP:No original research]] - Libre Pathology is ''not'' a primary source.
*[[LP:Neutral point of view]] - articles dealing with controversial areas should ''not'' take sides. 

By the way, you can sign your name on Talk pages and Discussion pages using three tildes,

Welcome email

Hello XXXX,

We are always happy to have help. I created an account for you
on Libre Pathology.

The user name is: XXXX

You should have an email with a temporary password in your mailbox.
Your email ( XXXX ) allows you to reset the password, should you 
forget it. You can change the email address in the preferences -- 
if you want it to be something else
( http://librepathology.org/wiki/index.php/Special:Preferences ).
If you do not like the user name -- this can also be changed.
Work on things you are interested in when you have time. Every
little bit is appreciated.

If you are unfamiliar editing wikis, all edits can be undone.  So, 
we encourage you to just try things. If interested, I can send you 
a PDF on editing.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to send me an email.

Welcome to Libre Pathology!
