I'm sure we're all sorry (er, um, glad!) to hear about Mav's new job.

I've been greeting new users occasionally, and as of today I've started copying Mav's meet-and-greet template. I can't promise 3 hours a day of anti-vandalism patrol, but I do browse Recent Changes frequently.

I enjoy encouraging newbies with praise and guidance, and I don't mind cleaning up after the uninitiated. But if they refuse to listen, I won't hesitate to make 'em stand in the corner (see [[child time-out]]).
