|Use on||User talk pages|
|Use for||To provide a welcome message.|
|Category template applies to page||(none)|
(See using templates).
|1||The user name||no (see note)||Defaults to the page name|
|sig||The signature of the editor posting the welcome ("~~~~" will do)||no|
NOTE: Parameter 1 is effectively obsolete, as the default is the page name. It can still be used if (a) the template is not placed on a user's talk page (or user's page) (when would that happen?) or (b) if there is a need to use a different name than the user's actual page name (e.g. a user name might be fredp but his signature is set to read FredP).
