|Hello user, welcome to the Dutch Wikipedia!
|| Welkomstbericht in het Nederlands
|Thank you for participating in this community project. We would like to give you the opportunity to be free and productive. Here are a few directions that might help you:
- A collection of useful links in English can be found on Help:English.
- Please use our Sandbox (zandbak) for experimenting.
- Feel free to add your expertise to Wikipedians by interest, and to use our Babel templates (taalsjablonen) on your user page.
- Wikipedia has been an ongoing project for several years now. There have been discussions on many issues in the past. Please check the discussion pages (overlegpagina's) if you are in doubt about the contents of a given page.
- If you want to make a careful start editing in Dutch, try to expand some of our stubs (beginnetjes).
- Take care when editing someone else's work. Registered users can change the name of an article by using "wijzig titel". This method of renaming keeps the history (geschiedenis) of a page intact.
- Questions about Wikipedia or for help can be asked at the Helpdesk.
- To sign messages, use four tildes: ~~~~
- More information (in Dutch) can be found on our conventions page and the wikiquette page.
