Editing Your User Page
After the successful login you should first edit your own user page. Here you can introduce yourself, your work and main focus as well as describe your relation to this Wiki. Please take a bit of time for your user page – there are several good reasons:
- The user names of all registered users are displayed in the user list. Clicking on any of the names will take you to the user page of the particular user.
- Registered users can use the link history in the top navigation section to display all previously edited versions of any page. The list of edited versions shows for each version the user name of the user who saved this version. Clicking on any of the names will take you to the user page of the particular user.
- On discussion pages you can close your own comments using the character string --~~~~. The system will automatically replace this with your user name and the timestamp of your edits. Clicking on your user name will take other users to your user page.
For creating your own user page it might be helpful to have a look at other user pages!
As a registered user you can:
- create new articles,
- change or complement existing articles,
