From WikiEducator
Jump to: navigation, search

This template is used to help new WikiEducators who choose to establish profile pages. The template is based on the hello template but without the input box with preloaded instructions. It is intended to encourage users to place profile pages as sub-pages of their user page. It is specifically intended for users with profile pages on the root directory.

It takes one attribute:

  • Personal message text - (required; but can be as simple as your signature)

For example:

{{Profiles|''I hope that you will join one of WikiEducator's many projects.''}}

Subject Line: Profile page!


I'm your WikiNeighbour and, like you, one of 80,739 WikiEducators.

I have noticed your new profile page. In it's current location, it is very likely that you and several other users will edit, or may already be editing the same profile page. This can be frustrating because other users are unwittingly replacing your work with theirs. It may be helpful to establish a profile page by editing your user page and simply adding this text: [[/My profile]]. This new link will establish a profile page that will be uniquely yours. And some good news: Any material you added on the other profile page is preserved in the history of that page and can be copied over to your new profile.

Similarly you may decide to establish [[/My pictures]] or any other category that facilitates your use of Wikiediucator. Welcome once again to the WE community.
