User profiles on Wikia comprise two pages connected to your user name: your User page and your Talk page.
A blank user page is created when you register for an account. Your username in page histories, recent changes, and signatures will be linked to this page, so people may click on these to find out more about you. You will have a user page ready for your use on each wiki you edit.
You can describe as much or as little about yourself as you like on your user page. You can describe your contributions to Wikia, or keep a collection of useful links to wiki pages or just use it to keep reminders for yourself. It's a place for you to tell other editors about you.
There is a talk or discussion page attached to every wiki page that is created. These pages exist for communicating with other Wikians about articles and improving the wiki. Just click the "discussion" or "talk page" link at the top of any page to find it. This link may be red while the page is empty, and another color when there is some conversation happening on the page. All contributors (even unregistered ones) have a personal talk page where other users can leave messages. Just click the "discussion/talk page" link near the top of a user page. You can also reach your talk page by clicking on the "My talk" link in the menu under your username in the top right corner of the screen. If someone leaves a new message on your talk page, you will see a notification bubble across the bottom of all other Wikia pages you visit. Click the link in the bubble (or the userbar link "My talk") to go to your talk page.
Talk page etiquette:Edit
Some other general guidelines for talk pages:
- Sign your comments by typing "~~~~" (four tildes). This will add your name and a timestamp.
- Add comments to the end of the page.
- When replying to a comment, indent your reply by placing a colon (":") at the beginning of a line.
- Keep your comments polite and friendly. It's always best to be civil, even if things get heated.
