Users are judged by their Userpages

Often someone will click a link to your userpage so its always good to make a good impression,"No one likes a book without a cover" its the same with Userpages a blank space wont tell anyone about you.In this blog I will be explaining how to spruce up your userpage making it attractive and informative.

StartingEdit

Its always to group your userpage into different sections eg. My Wikis,About me and a section about your social networking sites but first its always good to put all your information into a box of some type.I suggest looking around and if you see something you like go into source mode a coping the coding,modifying the colors and taking out their info.

ExampleEdit

My Userpage(or Whatever Title)
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.

Example CodingEdit

<div align="center"><div style="width:595px; float:center; border:1px solid blue; background-color:transparent; color:transparent; -moz-border-radius:3ex; border-radius:3ex; -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 10px 3px transparent; -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 10px 3px transparent; box-shadow: 0 0 10px 3px transparent; padding:10px; padding-bottom:15px; background-color:transparent; background-image:-moz-linear-gradient(top, transparent 25%, transparent 75%); background-image:-webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 0%, 0% 100%, color-stop(25%, transparent), color-stop(75%, transparent));">
              <div style="font-size:200%; font-weight:bold; font-family:'Bookman Old Style'; text-shadow: 2px 2px yellow; text-align:center; padding:3px; -moz-border-radius:3ex; border-radius:3ex;">My Userpage</div>
              <div style="font-size:200%; font-weight:bold; font-family:'Bookman Old Style'; text-shadow: 2px 2px yellow; text-align:center; padding:3px; -moz-border-radius:3ex; border-radius:3ex;"> </div><font color=black>Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts.

About meEdit

This section can be used to tell other wikians about yourself some good things to add are:

  • Your Nationality
  • How you found wikia/wikia history
  • Your Gender
  • Some facts about you

Tip:remember don't go on(make it boring) try to keep this to around a paragraph.

Where I editEdit

It is always a good idea to tell others what your home wikis are and what you are doing there,you may never know someone might offer to help you out with the project you are working on it also gives the viewer of the profile a little insight into your hobbies or your favourite TV Shows etc.When placing links here you put

[[w:c:1|Linkname]]

these a links to other wikis if you want it to link it to your userpage there make it: [[w:c:1:User:YOURUSERNAME|Linkname]] by linking it to your userpage other users can instantly look at what you do on the wiki wheather you are a bur,admin or rollback.

Social Networking SitesEdit

Sharing your social networking sites allows other users to connec
Twitter follow me

follow other users

t with you outside of wikia you can easily add a live twitter feed(see below).Sharing only the sites you feel safe with or even creating accounts for you wiki user.Many wikians and wikia staff have twitter accounts so maybe you shouldjoin them today.


Live Twitter feedEdit

You can add a twitter feed to your userpages by using this simple code:


====Coding====

<div style="font-size: 90%; color: black; background: white; overflow: auto; width: 450px; height: 150px;"><twitteruser username="Tama63" limit=20 /></div> <hr width="100%"/>

you can change the words tama63 to your twitter username,you can also ajust the height,font color, width and lots of other html coding.


Pictures Edit

You can only have a few images on your userpage,try and make sure they are relevant and even better get them from the Wikimedia commonsso there aren't any copyright issues,or you can make your own in paint or another image editing software make sure you select an option when uploading.

Make it globalEdit

Made a few edits to a wiki and don't want to copy all your profile over you don't have to if you follow these simple steps(this will even add those pictures):

  1. Create a template here on central redirecting to your profile
    1. add to the template#REDIRECT [[User:USERNAME]]
  2. Then on other wikis which you have only made a few edits(helping out with something)
  3. add this to your userpage {{w:User:Username}}
  4. The your done but remember use all the correct letter casing for the redirect and template
