We had an A/B testing malfunction here.

A while ago (October!), we were testing alternate links and text for the welcome message, and ended up settling on the text you see.

The other text was removed, but the links were not (the text and link live in different locations in code - yay localization!). When the test was stopped, the result was the text you see, but the other link.

I have fixed this and this is in the next build (rev 2015.1.12.2164, meta rev 2015.1.12.2934).
