User pages make communication among editors easier in a Wiki. Logged in users have a user page and talk page on every Wikia. You can find your own userpage at Special:Mypage on any Wikia site.

User pages are not home pages, but a way of organizing the work that you are doing on a particular Wiki and a way of helping other editors to understand with whom they're working.

Like any page on a Wiki, your user page can be edited by anyone. However, because a user page belongs to a specific person, it is expected that others will not edit except to make minor corrections, improvements, or to revert vandalism.

What to put on your userpage[]

On most Wikis, people add information about themselves, such as contact information, areas they excel in, their interests, likes and dislikes, where they live, and so on. Stellar Dawn Wiki user pages generally describe the Stellar Dawn character rather than the user's real self.

You can also use your user page to help you to use a wiki more effectively: you can make a "to do" list, list works in progress, leave reminders or messages, post useful links, and so on. Many users use a sandbox page to work on new content before putting the page in the main wiki space. Act with some restraint when editing user pages, e.g. only make changes where they are invited by the creator.

Many Wikis have userboxes that you can use on your user page to express certain interests and preferences. See Stellar Dawn Wiki:Userboxes to see the many userboxes available on this wiki. In addition, there are a number of templates that can be used to describe a Stellar Dawn character.

Multiple userpages[]

You have a separate user page for every Wikia site you contribute to. If you occasionally edit more than one, the community may find it helpful if you just link to your main user page from the other wikis you edit. For example, if you usually edit the Stellar Dawn Wiki, and occasionally edit Wookiepedia and Uncyclopedia, you can add this to your user pages on Wookiepedia and Uncyclopedia wikis:

My home wiki is the [[w:c:stellardawn|Stellar Dawn Wiki]]. Please see [[w:c:stellardawn:User:{{PAGENAME}}|my user page]] there.

which will display as:

My home wiki is the Stellar Dawn Wiki. Please see my user page there.
