Notice.png This page is a SmashWiki help page, intended to be a guide to helping users understand SmashWiki and its functionalities. When editing this page, please ensure that your revision reflects consensus. If in doubt, consider discussing changes on the talk page.

All logged-in users have a user page. (For example, if your login name is "MyNick", your user page will have the title "MyNick".) You can find your user page with the link at the top right of every page, or by following this link. Most people use user pages to give information about themselves and their interests and keep links to useful things.

You can make your user page as simple or as complicated as you like. You can add formatting or colour with wiki markup or with HTML, or leave it plain and simple. You can also add pictures, either a picture of yourself, one that expresses something about you, or just one you like. Remember though, that all pictures added to SmashWiki must be free-use.

Remember that all pages on this wiki can be picked up by Google and other search engines, and are available under the GFDL, so keep that in mind when you write.

Content[edit]

You may not use your user page for any content that is prohibited on SmashWiki. This includes copyright violations, pornography, excessive advertising, promotion of illegal activities, and hate speech. This is mostly common sense.

Editing user pages[edit]

User pages are still wiki pages, so they are open for everyone to edit. It is considered extremely rude to edit another user's page without the user's request, however, and such edits may be reverted. User pages are not allowed to look like another Web page, as it can cause disruption. User pages are not to be moved unless a user is being renamed, or if it belongs as a Smasher page.
