User:Ecologeek/Welcome Working Group
Here are some information regarding the proposal of a User:Rw/Proposal:Welcome Working Group
Data extracted from list discussion:  Some statistics abour the new members contacts established by french mappers:
- Nicolas Dumoulin : around 60% with no response, 30% positive and 10% negative
- PierreV : contact only mappers with a last 1 upload and in his region. 70% with no response (on them only 10% make other upload), 30% positive, 0% negative
- Cquest: no real statistics, but very few negative answers.
- Julien Thevenon : 32 messages sent since 2012. 5 positive answers, on them 4 still active mappers. On the 27 other people, around 10 still in activity.
We get a collection of message that are sent (in french), so it will be easier to build a "standard" message. Almost everyone sent messages only some weeks after the first upload, include a personnal part, and add links to the best information sources/tutorials and how to contact the french community in case of trouble.
