Hello, and welcome to Wikiversity!

Here are some tips to help you get started:

  • To learn the wiki-markup-language syntax, see Help:Editing.
  • You should sign your name on talk and vote pages using two hyphens and four tildes, like this: --~~~~.
    • There is a button at the top of the edit window that will insert this, too; it looks like part of a signature.
  • Preferably, conduct any editing experiments in the sandbox.
  • You can tell the community something about yourself in your user page.
    • You can get to this page by clicking the tab at the top of the page labeled with your registered username.
  • To attain a better understanding of what Wikiversity is, you might want to read through the introduction.
  • Please say hello at the Wikiversity:Colloquium with any questions or ideas.
  • Eventually, you might want to take the guided tour.
  • Please take a look at Wikiversity:Namespaces to get a better idea of how Wikiversity is structurally setup.
  • Wikiversity works a bit differently than other Wikimedia projecs. You may want to read about having a neutral point of view.
  • If you are interested in conducting research, please read the research guidelines.
  • Explore, be bold in editing pages, and have fun!

You will find more resources in Community Portal. If you want to ask a question, visit the questions page, the IRC (chat) page or ask me personally on my talk page. For site news, see the news page. It also might be a good idea if you add this page to your "watchlist" so that you can see when any new information is posted there.

Good luck!


Given the value of the Wikibooks community, it is encouraged for seasoned Wikibookians to welcome new users with this template, which lists some useful links and conventions that are often helpful to new users.

Place {{subst:Welcome to Wikiversity}} on the user's talk page (not the user page itself) and sign it (--~~~~).

There are no rules as to when to welcome new users. Generally, they should have some valid edits (not just their own user- or talk page). At the same time, welcoming users who have been with the project for a while could be taken as a disrespectful hint that they don't understand the project.
