Usage[edit]

Place

{{subst:joinus|~~~~}}

on the user's discussion page (not the user page itself). Use 1=~~~~ if your signature has styles applied to it.

A short personal note is always nice. You can include it in the template:

{{subst:joinus|Your note here. --~~~~}}

This will append the note to the standard salutation.

Escaping[edit]

If placed on a page outside the "User talk" namespace, it will produce:

To place this on pages in other namespaces (such as Wikibooks:Templates/User messages) set the "force" variable to whatever the namespace is:

{{joinus|force=Template}}
