PLEASE HELP the Welcome log

Brianna Laugher
Hello Commonsfolk and recently subscribed admins,

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Orgullobot/Welcome_log

This is another plea for assistance on the Welcome log. PLEASE HELP us
check it, even if it's only two users each day. There is a backlog of
nearly two weeks.

Newbies make a ton of mistakes and catching them early and correcting
them is one way to cut down on future workload in terms of reducing
required unlinking of images that need to be deleted, stopping problem
uploaders earlier and reduce 'orphan' uncategorised images.

After you've corrected their mistakes and left them a note explaining
what they're doing wrong, if necessary, please remove their name from
the list. It's very straightforward.

Please help... even if you just look for some 'easy' users that had
made no mistakes and remove their names from the list.

Since the welcome template is entirely non-personal, why not get someone to design a bot to do this job? Within minutes of a user signing up a message could be left by the bot so giving them some introductory information. It is preferable that the bot have some inbuilt delay between signup and message so that the user can see the message pop-up after a few minutes editing.

A bot *does* do this job.... I am not asking people to welcome users.
I am asking them to check the user's uploads.

The bot only welcomes new users after they have made at least one edit
or one upload.

Ah, I apologise! Yes, I'll attempt to lend a hand.

Can we ask the operator of the bot to check the New User Log instead?

Do you want the bot to welcome all users who register even if they
don't ever edit or contribute? Seems unnecessary to me... what is the
benefit?

IIRC 200-300 users register each day, around 90 are welcomed by
Orgullobot each day (so presumably made their first edit/upload that
day).

Please, only welcome *real* users, people which contribute.
