Personalizing your userpage is something that many Wikipedians do at some point in time, so you'll be in good company if you want to tweak it to include something personal! You can add a good many things to the page, but here are a few things that you shouldn't add:

  • Personal information. Anyone can see your userpage, so it's generally not a good idea to leave a lot of very personal information about yourself, such as where you live, go to school, and your contact information.
  • Copyrighted content. Just as with articles, your userpage should not contain anything taken from another source unless they are in the public domain or were licensed with a Creative Commons license.
  • Content that harasses another person.

In general your userpage should really only have content about yourself as it pertains to Wikipedia, however some information about your interests is fine. One of the most important things to have on your page though, is the tag that identifies you as a student enrolled in an educational class, as it helps other editors know that you're a student.

To find your userpage you can do one of two things: enter your username in the search bar (ie, User:Shalor (Wiki Ed)) or click your username at the top right hand portion of the page. This shows up on every Wikipedia page while you are logged in. Once at your userpage you would click "edit" to begin editing as you would any other type of page on Wikipedia.
