5 Great Reasons to Make a Personal Page
Tell the world who you are
Creating a wiki personal page on AboutUs is a fun, free way to tell the world a little or a lot about yourself. Think of your page as your bullhorn to the world, a free mode to broadcast your thoughts interests and passions while making connections with folks and organizations that speak to your soul.
Connect and Collaborate
Your personal page says a lot about you, from your areas of expertise to your hobbies and beliefs. This information is open to other folks looking for people with similar interests and abilities. Your edits listed on RecentChanges include a direct link to your personal page, providing a great way to network with others.
Build Trust in the Community
Having a PersonalPage allows you to back up your history of good edits with an introduction of yourself. If you have a particular passion for a subject or background in an area it would be great to see that on your PersonalPage.
- This is an opportunity for you to tell the Community who you are.
- Having a PersonalPage helps folks AssumeGoodFaith, it helps teach the WikiWay and supports the practice of using your RealName.
- It's all about building a community of RealPeople.
- Upload a portrait
If editing other pages on AboutUs seems a little overwhelming at first, your personal page is a great place for you to experiment. Please feel free to try anything and everything out on your page to help you get comfortable with wiki formatting. The Sandbox is also a designated area for new users to experiment with as they wish. If you have any trouble, please contact us.
