Function details: Finds a list of users who have done 1 edit in last 30 days. Looks to see if the talk page is created. Looks to see if the edit is in userspace. If not, creates the talk page with a welcome. --PokestarFanBot (talk) 00:34, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Comment The GitHub repository that is pointed to above seems to contain pywikibot code for welcoming users, but there does not seem to be any particular setup for Wikidata. The user has made a number of edits mentioning "pywikibot" in the summary from their main account. The edit summary would have to contain something like "Welcome to Wikidata" rather than the current "Pywikibot". I'm also not sure whether there is value in bot-based welcoming. Part of the point of welcoming is that there is an actual human behind the welcome, someone who you can talk to if you need help or assistance. I'd suggest that the community be quite cautious in approving this bot on both policy and technical grounds. —Tom Morris (talk) 13:09, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Comment. He himself promised to not use automation a few days ago after making massive mistakes. MechQuester (talk) 15:12, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Note that the user is indefinitely blocked on multiple projects (the last one was Commons), and for this reason I will not approve the bot unless there is a clear community consensus for approval (multiple support votes).--Ymblanter (talk) 23:20, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
Question @PokestarFan: If the new user made an unconstructive edit here, will the bot still welcome the said user? Pokéfan95 (talk) 01:58, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
