Proposed minor addition

As we all know, a number of eager users like to self-nom immediately after signing up. They inevitably get met with a barrage of "Oppose" votes and probably get very discouraged, possibly from future editing. To that end, does anybody mind if I add the following sentence to the end of the first paragraph:

"If you just registered an account today, for example, it is best not to nominate yourself until the community can get to know you better, as many people have nominated themselves right away and have not passed." Kansan (talk) 00:54, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

It already tells them to read the criteria which has the three month bar listed. I'm not against adding it as we have had new users nominate themselves right away, but am not sure it's necessary. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:30, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Apparently they're not clicking on the page it recommends they read, but maybe they would see this even without clicking (and would save us a lot of time from opposing, closing, explaining, etc.) Kansan (talk) 01:44, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
