Profile overview

User profiles are the representation of your self, your community, and your activity on Wikia. When logged in, every user will see a link that says "Profile"on the upper-right corner of every page.

Profile input sectionsEdit

You can enter information in several sections:

Personal InformationEdit

ProfileEdit

Editing the profile

This section allows users to tell a little bit about themselves. This section is not mandatory. If the Blog Namespace is enabled on your wiki, this information will appear on any blogs you author.

  • Info
  • Location
  • Hometown
  • Birthday
  • About Me
  • Work
  • Education
  • Places
  • Web

As with all personal information on the internet please be careful what information you add to your profile. This information will be viewable by all visitors to the site.

Other informationEdit

This is the fun section that allows users to express more of their favorite things and hobbies. This section can be customized by admins to be relevant to your wiki or they can stay general (i.e what's your favorite movie/band)

AvatarEdit

See Help:Avatars for information on the Avatar tool.

PreferencesEdit

Email preferences (whether or not you get notified on certain events).

CustomEdit

An administrator can define what titles appear in this section via the following pages:

  • MediaWiki:Custom-info-field1 - this may be used for "Xbox Gamertag ID", be careful
  • MediaWiki:Custom-info-field2
  • MediaWiki:Custom-info-field3
  • MediaWiki:Custom-info-field4

The information shows in a similar fashion to "Other information", above.

Autopopulated InformationEdit

Recent Activity displays the most recent activities a user has completed on the wiki.
Stats displays count totals for various activities on the wiki (i.e. Main Namespace edits, comments, votes, etc)
