This user is an automatically created bot for use in spam prevention, malicious and other non-malicious editing activities. Its main focus is aimed at new users, but it will watch older accounts without any previous edits.

New Users[edit]

Welcome to our wiki!

We know your experience will be pleasant and you will find there is an abundance of people waiting to help you get the most enjoyable experience out of using the Joomla! CMS. As a member of the community, we really want you to contribute to our wiki and hope you will come back again and again. It takes contributions from Joomla! users like you to make this wiki possible.

Here are a few things to remember as a new user:

  • Don't take it personally if this bot stops you from performing an edit, on occasion it can't distinguish good users from bad.
  • While Wiki policy allows for links to your personal website with conditions, you should perform some edits on other pages without trying to insert or even correct an external link on any page, including your User page.
  • Once this bot sees you have performed some good edits, it will lose interest.
  • If you do accidentally trip this bot, you'll have to go to Special:Preferences and re-confirm your email address.

Thanks for reading!
