Your userpage is your page to tell something about you to the community. You can tell something about yourself, which pages you like on the wiki, what you do on the wiki and much more.

Where could I change?Edit

Go to your userpage and click on the tab "Profile". Click on the "Edit" button to change something on your profile.

What could I tell?Edit

You can tell something about yourself or something what you want to do on the wiki. It's also possible to show on which wiki's you also work and what you do there. Or you can tell what you're currently doing on the wiki.

How to customize your profile?Edit

You can also customize your profile with borders, other text colors and much more.

If you want to add a border you only have to insert this code to the top of the page.

<div style="border:2px solid darkblue;">

If you want to change the text color you can use the following code.

<div style="color:darkblue;">

If you want to change the place of the text and you want the text more to the middle, you can add the following code.

<div style="margin-bottom:1em; padding:0.2em 0.8em 0.5em 0.8em;">

If you want the three options above you have to insert it behind each other like below.

<div style="border:2px solid darkblue; color:darkblue;margin-bottom:1em; padding:0.2em 0.8em 0.5em 0.8em;">

To change the size of the border you only have to change the number. The codes above are for the whole page. If you want to use it for a part use this:

<div style="color:darkblue;">text</div>

Remove "text" with the part of the text you want to change the color.

Userpage templateEdit

It's possible to make a standard profile template. You can do this on Community Central on the page "Template:User:your username". It's possible to use the codes above in this template. You can use this template on all wiki's, the only thing you have to do is to insert "{{w:User:your username}}" this code to your profile (remove "your username" with your username).

But parameters ({{{1}}}) do not work in inter-wikis when used directly from Community Central, so if you want to have a template with working parameters try creating it in the "User" namespace.

Message Wall GreetingEdit

It's also possible to add a Message Wall Greeting. You can see then a text on the top of the message wall. You can do this on the page "Message Wall Greeting:your username" (remove "your username" with your username). You can use the same codes in this page as on the userpage template.

But if there are not message walls but talk pages on the wiki it doesn't work.

If you have questions about customizing your userpage or want help with something please go to my message wall to ask me about it. You can also ask an admin on this wiki, go to the forum or ask in the chat.
