Teahouse invitations[edit]

Here at the Teahouse we like to keep things friendly and personal. The power of invitation is a great tool in making new people feel welcome. This template was created with the visual appeal of the Teahouse in mind combined with the knowledge that a simple, personalized message can go a long way.

Articles for creation template[edit]

This welcome can be used on talk pages of users who have failed to get their article accepted at Articles for creation. It even signs itself, no parameters needed:

Teahouse logo
Hello! Teahouse, I noticed your article was declined at Articles for Creation, and that can be disappointing. If you are wondering or curious about why your article submission was declined please post a question at the Articles for creation help desk. If you have any other questions about your editing experience, we'd love to help you at the Teahouse, a friendly space on Wikipedia where experienced editors lend a hand to help new editors like yourself! See you there!

{{Wikipedia:Teahouse/AfC Invitation}}

This template is also available to use when declining a submission with the Articles for creation script. Just check the Teahouse box when declining a submission!

Welcome templates (text-based)[edit]

These templates combine the official Teahouse invitation with {{welcome-personal}}. They are all fully Twinkle compatible, check them out! (Note: We reduced the headers to bold text, but they will work when placing the real template.)

Welcome!

Teahouse talkback[edit]

Everyone at the Teahouse should leave talkbacks on other editors's user talk pages when they respond to that user's Teahouse question.

Teahouse host invite[edit]

Part of the way hosts can be involved in the Teahouse is to welcome experienced editors who visit the Teahouse and answer questions but aren't hosts. You can explain some of the policies that make the Teahouse a friendly and helpful place, and maybe they will want to be hosts as well.

Hi! Teahouse, thanks for visiting the Teahouse! As an experienced editor, your knowledge is very valuable to new editors. Teahouse Hosts help new editors at the Teahouse and beyond. If you'd like to get involved in assisting new editors at the Teahouse, please click here to learn more.

Teahouse Maitre'd invite[edit]

Dear Teahouse, thank you for volunteering as a host at the Teahouse. Wikipedia is a community of people working together to make knowledge free. You are an important part of that effort! By joining as a Host, you are helping new users get a hold of the ropes here at Wikipedia, and helping experienced users that just have a question about how something works.

One program you may not have been aware of is the Teahouse Maître d' program. This program allows a few editors at a time to help organize the teahouse and keep it running. If you're interested in participating, sign up on the calendar. Thanks for your help at the Teahouse!

Host decline[edit]

You can use this if a new editor has signed up to be a host, but you don't feel that they have enough experience.

Hi! Teahouse, thank you for volunteering to be a host at the Teahouse! We really appreciate your willingness to help! However, we see that you are pretty new around here and haven't edited very much yet. It takes a lot of time, background knowledge and patience to answer new editors questions effectively. So you should probably edit for a while before you sign up to be a host. That said, we hope you continue to participate and spread the word about the Teahouse to other new Wikipedians. Come back soon!
