In general, your userpage should only have content about yourself as it pertains to Wikipedia, however some information about your interests is fine.

Things to add

  • Student tag: One of the most important things to have on your page is the tag that identifies you as a student enrolled in an educational class, as it helps other editors know who you are.

Things you should not add (Find the full list here.)

  • Personal information: Anyone can see your userpage, so do not list where you live, go to school, or 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.

  • A note of caution: you should never edit another person's userpage without permission.

How to find and edit your userpage

  • Enter your username in the search bar (User:Shalor (Wiki Ed)).
  • OR click your username at the top right hand portion of the page. Make sure you're logged in or you won't see it!
  • Once at your userpage, click "edit" to begin editing as you would any other type of page on Wikipedia.
