Please note that this is a guide to help you along if you don't know how to make a user page and to show some of the functions you can have, i.e. you don't have to have all these things. It is preferred that users personalize their user pages, so that they become unique.


To start out their userpage, some users like to add a box of information, or an "infobox" to their userpage. Infoboxes are easy to use, but can be difficult if you don't know what you're doing. To the right is an example of an infobox with some guidance as to what you would fill out in that section. To get your infobox to look like this, copy the following code and change what you would like to change. #909090 is the background color of the infobox, that is a basic gray and that color can be changed to whatever color you would like to personalize your infobox.

User welcome image

Name Your username or first name here.*
A.K.A What you're also known as
Pokémon Used What Pokémon you user in your team
Hometown A fake hometown.*
Date of Birth What month you were born.*
Age Your age.*
League Rank Your league ranking.
Friends Your friends on the wiki.
Edit Count This user has total edits.

The following code can be placed on your userpage to make your infobox.

{|class="infobox" style="{{roundy|20px}} width:17em; border:solid 2px #909090; float:right; text-align:left"
|colspan=2 style="text-align: center;"|

"About Me" Sections

Most userpages you'll find an "about me" section, this is where you can tell other users the basics about you. You can:

  • Share other sites you edit at
  • Share your username on other websites
  • Share links to your subpages
  • Show what you want to work on on this wiki

"Word Bubble and Previous Signatures" Sections

Do you have a word bubble that you want to show off to the other editors? If so, feel free to place your template onto your userpage. Same goes with any previous signatures that you have!

"Funny Edits" Sections

Have you seen some odd, funny, or just downright weird edits that you want to show off? Some users have a funny edit section where they will place the URL for the diff link and show users what that edit was.

"Quote" Sections

Some users on the wiki frequent chat or even use the IRC to talk to other Wikians, these users may have a section on their userpage to show some funny quotes that people have said in chat or the IRC.

"Signature" Sections

Some users like to see who has seen their userpage. Kind of like a guestbook, some users have a signature section. This section is where other users can edit and say something nice about that user, or just say that they've dropped by.
