Where to find new users[edit]

Here are some ways to find new users:

  • Use the User Creation Account to locate newly created accounts.
  • Check Illogicopedia's new pages - this is especially useful with a quick link to their talk page, as well as an "at-a-glance" sign to tell if they've probably been welcomed already: their talk page isn't red linked!
  • Check the Newbies' contributions page and help newbies contribute if they are having trouble
  • You will no doubt come across new users as you browse Illogicopedia. You may spot them in the edit histories of pages or on talk pages. If a user's signature or username is in red, that indicates that he or she doesn't have a user page set up yet. That means they are very likely (but not always) a new user. Check their talk page to see if they've already been greeted (though there's no harm in greeting a new user again; you can always say "hi", and offer your assistance).
  • Check the recent changes for unwelcomed users. You can then click on the red linked talk page and then greet them. This is also helpful if you are looking for newbies, vandalism, etc.
