Introduction


Styled after: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:User_pages

Every user on WikiQuote has their own individual User Page and User Talk Page. This page will explain how you can use your own User Page on WikiQuote (WQ).


User Pages are a key means of supporting communication between users by providing information about users and their accounts, and are widely linked from many locations in order to support this. It is normal to view user pages in many contexts when users want to find out more about a user or user action. User pages are an intrinsic part of WQ's communication infrastructure:

  • user pages are linked from every signature in discussions
  • user pages are linked from every file history (eg where users have tagged pages as having problems)
  • user pages are linked from every upload log
  • user pages are linked from many {{Information}} templates
  • user pages of admins are linked from every deletion log entry

</ref> Other uses of user pages are secondary to this.

WQ's software, MediaWiki, allows all logged in users to have their own user page. Anonymous users also have user pages, but they will share these with other users of the same IP. This can facilitate communication among participants in the project. If your username is JohnDoe:

User pages are linked to from page histories, recent changes, the list of users and from any page where you sign your name.
