Blue check.png This page documents a guideline. It is a generally accepted standard that contributors should attempt to follow, though it is best treated with common sense and the occasional exception.

Any substantive edit to this page should reflect consensus. When in doubt, discuss first on the talk page.


Purpose of User page

FamilySearch Research Wiki provides user pages to facilitate communication among participants. Generally, you should avoid substantial content on your user page that is unrelated to FamilySearch Research Wiki. More help on adding content to a user page can be found here.

FamilySearch Research Wiki is not a general hosting service, so your user page is not a personal website. The user page is a great place to create a personal profile or introduction to yourself as a FamilySearch Research Wiki contributor.

Your user page should be used as part of your efforts to contribute to the project (a location to keep helpful hints, or what you last contributed). In addition, there is broad agreement that you may not include in your user space material that is likely to bring the project into disrepute. e.g. blatant advertisements or lengthy blogs are inappropriate. See FamilySearch Research Wiki is not.

Guidelines for User pages

A user account should be used only by one person, and in most cases, one person should have only one account.

Name of User page

Your user page is automatically named after your username you chose when you register for a FamilySearch account. Currently, you can not change your user name once it has been created.

Your User Page must display your correct username (the one you log into the wiki with) as the page title. You should not override the page title so that the user name does not show. For example: if your username is Genealogy223 and your real name is Dale Smith, then the title of your wiki user page will be Genealogy223, not Dale Smith. This is to assist others in identifing which edits and contributions you have made.
