Azurilland Wiki:Beginner's Userpage

This page is intended to give new users tips on starting their userpages and is a guide on making a basic userpage. Remember, the one, real rule for userpages is to not give out personal information (ie. real full name, location, etc.). For the policy on userspace, visit Azurilland Wiki:Userspace.

Infobox[edit source]

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 to add if you are a beginner. 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 by adding the color's name or its hexadecimal code.

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

Welcome to my userpage!
Name Your username or first name here.*
A.K.A What you're also known as
Pokémon 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.

"About Me" Sections[edit source]

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

"Funny Edits" Sections[edit source]

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[edit source]

Some users on the wiki frequent the wiki Skype chat, and these users may have a section on their userpage to show some funny quotes that people have said on Skype.

"Signature" Sections[edit source]

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.
