An introduction to user spaces.

User Pages

Every user has the ability to create a User page. To do this, click on your username at the top of your page and start editing. For editing help visit Creating & Editing Articles.

You can put anything you want on your User page, within reason. Here are some ideas:

  • A brief introduction of who you are.
  • A list of contributions you have made or intend to make in the future.
  • To-do lists.

(Example)

Tracking Contributions

Contribution pages show what users have done around the wiki. They can be reached by visiting http://tcrf.net/Special:Contributions/USERNAME (Example)

No one at TCRF keeps track of how much users contribute. There isn't any reward for having the most edits, and editing pages just to add to your contribution score is heavily discouraged. However, if you want to keep track of your contributions out of personal interest, you can add a contribution box to your User page with the following code:

Code:
{| class="wikitable"

! colspan="2" | Wiki contributions
|-
! style="padding-left: 1em; padding-right: 1em;" |Total pages worked on:
| style="text-align: right; padding-left: 1em; padding-right: 1em;" |'''{{#cscore:USERNAME|pages}}'''
|-
! style="padding-left: 1em; padding-right: 1em;" |Total revisions saved:
| style="text-align: right; padding-left: 1em; padding-right: 1em;" |'''{{#cscore:USERNAME|changes}}'''
|}

Result:

Wiki contributions
Total pages worked on: 1,202
Total revisions saved: 2,438

User Talk Pages

Every user has a Talk page which you can use to communicate with them. To visit someone's Talk page, go to their User page and click on the "discussion" tab at the top. If the link is red, that means the page hasn't been created yet and you will be brought to an edit screen. (Example)

Rules

User Talk pages are not for arguing. If you are having problems with someone, visit Handling Disputes for more information.

Don't alter the content of a User Talk page. This includes deleting comments.

Leaving Comments

To write on an article's Talk Page use the following format:

Code: ==Topic==

Write your comment/question/etc. here. --~~~~

Writing four tildes (--~~~~) attaches your signature and a timestamp to your comment, so other users will know who wrote it and when. --GlitterBerri 21:26, 25 December 2012 (EST)

Replying

Reply to people's comments on your own Talk page in order to avoid splitting up the conversation. You can do this by using a : in front of your response. It will automatically indent your reply.

Code: Result:
Thanks again for the help! --~~~~

:No problem! --~~~~

Thanks again for the help! --GlitterBerri 21:51, 26 November 2012 (EST)
No problem! --ZestyLemon 21:59, 26 November 2012 (EST)

Comments can be indented further by adding more colons (:).

Code: Result:
Thanks again for the help! --~~~~

:No problem! --~~~~
::No, seriously, I really appreciate it. --~~~~
:::It's my pleasure, really. --~~~~

Handling Disputes

If you have problems with another user, don't contact them directly. Instead, write a civil message on an admin's Talk page explaining the issue. Always be polite, and avoid escalating the situation.
